More CSA Cooking!

Things I need to work on:
1. Cleaning
2. Laundry
3. Working out
4. My food photography skillz ... or lack thereof.

I am seriously almost embarrassed to post these photos. Food bloggers seem to have the most amazing food photographs ... so perhaps my new goal will be to work on that! I think the first stop towards achieving beautiful food photographs is to use natural light.


Well, here is tonight's dinner, somewhat courtesy of my CSA:

It consisted of eggs, Laughing Cow light swiss cheese wedges, caramelized onions and mushrooms, and wilted beet greens. On the side: a piece of that soggy sesame bread we got (don't worry, it's not soggy anymore) toasted with some Maranatha almond butter.

It looks incredibly ... brown and boring and stuff. But in reality, it was delicious!!!! Pinky swear.

I also roasted the beets and now they are marinating overnight with some onions in olive oil, apple cider vinegar, sea salt, and a drizzle of honey.

Here is the worst photo ever of my bowl of beets. It's so dark!

I picked up some organic strawberries today and they looked so perfect that we had to eat some right away. So, for dessert: vanilla bean ice cream with strawberries, drizzled with this chocolate balsamic vinegar. Which was absolutely incredibly amazing.


Tomorrow for lunch: greens with the marinated beets and some feta. CSAs RULE!

To add onto what Jackie said, I've read that food bloggers put their camera on the tripod for better pictures. I don't know if you have one, but just a thought? I don't have one so I can't attest to anything - my food photos look JUST like yours. Translation: I know your food tastes amazeballs, regardless of photo quality!

Do you read a lot of health food bloggers?
