FOOD GLORIOUS FOOD

A PHOTO HISTORY OF OUR ENCOUNTERS WITH FOOD
I've been bad...very bad. Last weekend, a weekend that I've now stretched all the way to the following Thursday, has been a very decadent trip through street fairs, cafes, roadside diners with carhop service and glorious mouth smacking restaurants. I've been on a food binge and I've got the new one size up pants to prove it. So in honor of my new pants and the lethargy that gluttony can produce I'm dedicating this post to a retrospective of some of the food I've been able to photograph before my fork was allowed to destroy the many magnificent tableaux of delectable deliciousness.
