Food: NaBloPoMo #3

My food never comes out pretty. It tastes good 87% of the time, but never looks good. I'd never see my chicken and rice on a cover of any magazine, except maybe Ripley's Believe it or Not!.

I want to be a foodie, I really do! I love reading food blogs, ( These food artists are GENIUS!) looking at delicious desserts and getting great ideas for dinners, but whenever I copy a recipe from these blogs? It tastes GREAT. Looks NOTHING like the shiny photo that made me drool on my keyboard.

I take that back, I did have ONE meal that looked as good as it tasted.

I burned the chicken, scortched the spices and Jake still ate EVERY bite that was in his bowl. That's true love with an iron stomach.

I'm calling out to my foodie friends, how do YOU make your food look good?? Post your photos in the comments, I want to feel envious of you!

I remember the first meal you cooked for me. Mothers Day around 1995ish, cold scrambled eggs, burnt bacon, soggy toast and maple milk (because there was no chocolate syrup in the house at the time). You were destined to be a foodie! Love You!
