Food Fun with the Macro Lens

My sweet and talented husband borrowed a Canon 100mm f/2 Macro lens from a colleague and used it to photograph 10 (fairly common) foods we had in our kitchen. 

Can you identify the 10 foods below?
Answers are at the bottom of the post.

1. A common herb.  I'm waiting on your answer...clock's ticking

2. Not the most date-friendly food in the world...

3. I do NOT eat this "crumby" stuff.  Wheat only, please.

4. Not feeling bleu exactly, but close to it

5. A traditional Thanksgiving side dish

6. These granules are blooming

7. Another key player in the Thanksgiving meal

8. Personally, I prefer the dark stuff

9. Health food; R loves putting it on top of vanilla ice cream

10. Not what it looks like... A key ingredient in Puttanesca sauces.  I adore the nutty flavor it lends to dishes!

1. Thyme
2. Clove of Garlic
3. Slice of White Bread
4. Gorgonzola Cheese
5. Stove Top Dressing
6. Knox Unflavored Gelatine
7. Raw Sweet Potato
8. Ghiradelli Classic White Chips
9. Ground Flax Seed
10. Anchovy Paste

LOVING these posts! :)
I guessed 6 of the 10 pics correctly... The Gorgonzola cheese, sweet potato, flax seed, and anchovy paste threw me off. I didn't specifically guess "Ghirardelli"...but I know white chocolate when I see it! :)ha!
It was also fun to read about the latest Earth Girls adventure!
Keep the posts coming! Good stuff!!!

Oops, only got 5 of the 10. Didn't get the Knox, either. What did you use that in? We used to use it with Jello and make "Knox blocks" when I was little.

Used the Knox to stabilize the top white chocolate later of the Triple Chocolate Mousse Cake I made for Christmas dinner (and also another one for a chocoholic friend of mine).
