After my birthday I have been trying to be more committed to eating Paleo. For a self proclaimed foodie, this is hard. However, I like flavor, so as long as it’s flavorful. I can break up with carbs and dairy for a while. Plus, Summer is coming and I’m trying to join the crop top movement. Last night I was so tired, and SO hungry, which is usually when I end up eating some BS that I will regret later. I also have not been grocery shopping in a while so the pickings were slim. So I opened up the fridge, discovered I had some tomatoes as well as some unused tomato sauce, eggs, spicy chicken sausage, lettuce, and carrots. Which means I have dinner and it has a name “Uova in Purgatorio!” Aka Eggs in Purgatory.
It has been a long time since I have done a food post. If you follow me on Twitter or Instagram then you already understand my passion for good and pretty food. This love for food sometimes doesn’t support my love for fashion because I am not sample size (and working out is not my friend…sometimes) but I love to cook and eat. In my world having attractive food is just as important as it tasting good. My mother taught me this and my grandmother taught her so I have been this way forever. No matter what I cook, I plate my food like it is being served in a restaurant. Visuals are not only important in fashion, they are important for everything! Especially food.
Anyway, this year was my second stab at cooking my family’s Thanksgiving dinner. I must say, I am patting myself on the back and so is the rest of my family. IT WAS GOOD! And Pretty! Here are a couple of tips that I have learned about plating and cooking that I would love to share:
