Savoring the Changing Face of Foods (2014- Blog #19)

Sunday, January 19, 2014

Made a nice breakfast today.. Sunday special - because I have time! Did not photograph goods because I was busy photographing my mountain instead. Over rich coffee aromas and the wafts of Brussels sprouts and eggs topped with parsley and a hint of Parmesan, my husband and I talked about why this ritual of making and displaying foods for each other is a nice part of our lives.

Foods are a gift. They nourish the soul and the body. When done with just a hint of art, it just tastes better! I eat with my eyes first - regardless of whether it is healthy or not (argh!) so the more I can focus on the beauty of the foods, the better. There are PLENTY of unhealthy gorgeous foods, right? As much as I love the presentation, I also love the process. Savoring the changing face of a food is a sport!

Here are few veggies I have enjoyed of late:

Topping salad with fruits adds to the daily enjoyment of veggies!

Roasting beets sweetens this wonderful veggie:

Prepping for a soup is joyful to the eyes:

Topping off a soup with a sprinkle of aromatic parsley:

Winter soup - hearty and heart-warming:

Have a day enjoying good foods!

PHOTO OF THE DAY: My mountain....dotted with colors!

    There is this part of me that wishes I would think more like that- food as art. I don't know, it just doesn't do anything for me. That doesn't mean that food can look gross- but other than that, it's just whatever.

    Awesome looking plate!! And ... just which mountain is your mountain? My "mountain" (and no one would call it that) is Grand Dad Bluff. :D I'll have to post a picture of it.

    Beautiful food pictures. So colorful. Beets are a favorite of mine. I especially like them roasted and garnished with almonds.

    Your lovely photos make me WANT to eat healthy. emoticon

That photo of your mountain makes me feel nostalgic. Those clouds remind me of the passage of time, and how very, very quickly each moment passes by and is gone.

    LOL! You would post these gorgeous photos the day I'm on liquids only! Seriously, though, it reminds me I want to get some beets to try roasted... I've been experimenting in that direction (roasted fresh veggies... nums!)

TOMORROW's supper is going to be SO GOOD! emoticon
