I celebrated my birthday at Kura Revolving Sushi Bar. It has been awhile since I have posted in my blog. Things have been busy, but I do believe Kura sharing. The food was excellent! I had a blast with the conveyor shooting items to my table and selecting items from the revolving line. If you deposit fifteen plates, a video style screen encourages you, you win a prize. The automated IPad style ordering system is very convenient table side. The selection of sushi is pretty expansive. For more information check out their website https://kurausa.com/

 

My daughter is going to have a fine art show soon and has recently created a new web page at http://www.gabriellamoyer.com I am attaching a gallery show flyer and I hope some of my followers will stop by her sight. It has front static page of one of her paintings and a few more paintings in the blog.

I am finally getting around to posting my annual year in food for 2018. These are dishes I made while cooking. Every year I cook at least 325 home meals. With each passing year cooking is a snap. Almost as fast as some people make a T.V. dinner. Well, maybe not that fast! I often wonder why so many chose to eat ready made or fast food when the home kitchen offers so much more quality options at a fraction of the cost. All it takes is a little effort, learning, time, and love. Could it be that is what we are losing these traits among the people? If we are isn’t that sad? Well, enough of being philosophical! Here are some of my favorite dishes for the year. As always there are many ethic dishes as I find many cultures besides American have tastier food. Bland is not an option for me. Bon Appetite!!! Ready to cook up in 2019.

 

Traffic – A Haiku

Organized chaos,

Sometimes disorganized mess,

Vehicles galore.

The Houston Independent School District recently opened the flagship Kinder High School For The Performing and Visual Arts in downtown Houston, Texas. This high school is a premier public school for students who are visual artists, dancers, actors and actresses, musicians, and creative writers. You will be hard pressed to find a public school that is this awesome anywhere in the world. Here are a collection of photos from the recently opened school. You will see the theater and two smaller practice theaters, library, relaxing area, exercise room, dance room, stage creation room, costume room, commons area, print making room, control area, orchestra room, some night snapshots, and a little history just to name a few. If you plan on attending, practice your craft for auditions, because as little as 10% make the cut to attend this great school. All photos 2019 Albert Moyer, Jr. Photography

A world of sweetness

Inside this globe of beauty

Something men could learn.

My father recently passed and one of the greatest gifts he ever taught me was to eat well. Whether it was a simple pot of beans, or the finest steak, my dad always stressed that good food was one of the many secrets to living a great life. Dad would by a $5 pair of sneakers for a $15 steak. He had his priorities straight. Food before anything else. The Central Market in Houston was one of my dad’s favorite grocery stores. It has just about anything a person could want in the way of food. Rarely do people sit around a table today and enjoy a great meal as a family. It is a dying tradition that in my opinion is causing many of us to die. Family meals and the bonding and sharing that go along with them are vitally important. I decided to shoot a few photos to share of my dad’s favorite grocery store. The purpose is two fold. One to is to promote this great place Central Market and two to stress the importance of great eating and spending time together as a family. If you do not know how to cook, no worries, their are plenty of YouTube videos and cookbooks. Do learn how to cook and make food a part of the great times of life.

Seasons often change landscapes and plant life leaving the photographer many options year round. Today I made a trip to the Houston Arboretum to hike and photograph what I found to be beautiful. I hope you enjoy this collection of photos as much as I do. Thank you for viewing.

I have eaten so many Mexican dishes in my lifetime and I must say the food at Hugo’s Mexican Restaurant exceeded all my expectations. The service also exceeded my expectations. My group started with Chaupulines or Grasshopper tacos, and Queso Flameado which was cut and divided among four tortillas. We also had Cabrito/Goat, Barbacoa/Lamb, and Carnitas/Pork along with many great salsas and condiments. The Churros for dessert where amazing! Dulce the Leche and Chocolate! Oh, my! So awesome!
