We All Have That One Friend …

French toast with fruits, nuts and maple syrup
Comida de El Salvador 
Indian- naan, lentil curry and samosas
Japanese- vegan squash and quiche
Japanese- vegan salad
Julienne fries
Japanese-soba soup with tofu
Thai- veggie pad thai

And that friend is me. Yes, I take pictures of food.  Yes, I will ask you to move your elbows, phone, hand sanitizer, inhaler etc. so that I can get my shot. Don’t even bother getting upset. I’m like paparazzi when it comes to getting my food shots.  I’ve heard every insult and I’ve had to dodge my fair share of condiments. You are not going to stop me. I know you’re hungry and you don’t have a lot of time.  All the more reason to work with me so that we can get this over with as quickly as possible.  If you are nice to me I always make you look beautiful.  And by beautiful I mean I crop your face out of the shot.  Just keep your used napkin out of my frame. 

Cheers and be kind to your friends taking pictures of what you guys eat this weekend!

    Lol – a surprising twist – I thought you were going to speak about a friend that took you different places or could cook all this food! Lovely pictures (making me hungry) and keep doing what you do 🙂

    Girl, you crack me up! Lol. I am the same way, but I am polite enough to put the phone away when I go out with my husband. Only because he puts his away. And that's after taking pictures of both mine and his plate.Big hugs, my friend.
