Photo Dump: Food Style

I have a bunch of food photos leftover on my phone from the last month or so and instead of just deleting them, I thought I would share them with you all. If you follow me on Instagram or Twitter, you may have seen quite a few of these already.

Enjoy the photo dump, food style!

Dinner at mom and dads: Grilled chicken breast, salad with vinaigrette, roasted eggplant, and watermelon.

After my dining experience at Spoon River, I realized I really like eggplant if it is prepared properly. I love how they had roasted it with some olive oil, salt, and some herbs (at least I think that’s what they did), so I tried replicating it at home. I bought an eggplant from the farmers market, sliced it into large circles, spread on some olive oil, salt and pepper, and roasted them in a 375°F for about 30 minutes, flipping the eggplant halfway through the roasting process. They turned out great! I will definitely be making them again this summer!

This is from a work potluck. I piled on the veggies, fruit, quinoa, and tried some of the crab salad too. Everything was awesome as always! We have the best potlucks.

I don’t think I ever shared this one with you. This was a mushroom and black bean veggie burger from a restaurant in Apple Valley called Valley Tap House. We enjoyed this meal outside until the storm sirens started going off and we were forced inside. torrential rain began as soon as we got inside! This burger was fab btw!

A random mini meal: veggies and hummus. Gorgeous.  veggies and hummus


This one obviously isn’t a food photo but I had to post it. He demolished one of his stuffed animal toys which he usually doesn’t do! He is very good about preserving the stuffing, but he must have had enough of this one!




Happy Friday, aka the best day of the week if you ask me!
