I did a little grocery shopping and had more variety in my meals this week. I bought a few new items to use as props in my photos, and then my awesome sister sent me a Valentine's package full of more props (placemats, plates, etc.)! It's so exciting! And just what I needed, because I was starting to wonder how I'd continue this project. Not even one month in and I was already feeling down about all of it. I feel refreshed now. :)
01/21 - A photo I had seen earlier in the day inspired my dinner choice: grilled chicken breast, baby yellow potatoes and roasted brussels sprouts. Deliciousness! I need to get some neutral plates, though.
01/22 - Kind of random, but it sounded good: rigatoni, ham and avocado. This was my first avocado of the year, and I'm happy to say it was actually the correct ripeness and texture (finally)! Oh and you're crazy if you think I only ate that much of the avocado.
01/23 - It's rigatoni again! This time with some leftover chicken, zucchini and feta.
01/24 - I had a hard day and almost forgot to take a picture, but remembered right as I made this popcorn. Close one!
01/25 - Ham and tortellini with cheese. Basically, it's a fancier version of macaroni and cheese with cut up hot dogs.
01/27 - Salmon, rice pilaf and avocado. Kind of bland to look at, but oh so delish. And how fancy am I with the parsley? Some day I'll share the rice pilaf recipe--my dad taught it to me several years ago.
A couple of bonus photos that didn't make the cut. This was mostly because I was excited to use one of these dip bowls (and place mat) that my sister gave me. How adorable is it? Oh and I was excited about the M&Ms too. :)
Another "Just in case I forget later" food photo. I love you, tea! Don't ever change.
Does anyone have fun weekend plans? I am hoping to work on my photography workshop stuff and also sleep in. And maybe fold this laundry...or throw it away and buy all new things.
