beef kielbasa hash,low cost

Dana Hayden, M.Ed.


Four small potatoes, garlic clove and half of a beef kielbasa! This was enough to feed four people until full. Total cost, .34 cents a person!
An optional ingredient could be lime and that would cut the grease in this dish.
I enjoyed photographing the potatoes as they turned GBD, and notice how the sugars in the kielbasa turned darker.
Food is such a transitory thing, I love capturing it in photos before it is gone.
Have you ever spent a whole day cooking and it is eaten within 20 minutes? Start to take photos and cooking becomes art and you are the creator of that art each mealtime.
