You can call me a little weird if you want, but I have a ton of food pictures on my phone. When I try something new, or see sometime that looks really good, I get a picture of it. It’s not unusual for me to be sitting in a restaurant and say, “Don’t start eating yet, I need to take a picture of my food.” I’m really NOT in to how food is presented, but more into how it tastes… and how much is on my plate.
When it comes to food, I’ll try anything once. A while back I ate some baby octopus just because I’d never tried them… not bad.
Here are a few pictures of things I’ve eaten recently and loved.
Lea and I have been taking a Spanish class, and after it was over we had a fiesta with some authentic Mexican food. SO authentic that you couldn’t even drink the water. The food was incredible and our teachers, Billy Moore and Amanda Henderson, did an excellent job teaching us.
Recently my friends Eddie & Kim Cook invited me over for my first crawfish boil. It was outstanding. Even better was the creole (soup) that they made from the leftovers.
The most AMAZING place to eat in Honduras is Carnitas. Carnitas is located in the bull-pen area of a local baseball stadium. There food at Carnitas is SO good you feel guilty eating it. This plate is called the “Triple Play” and comes with pork, sausage and beef. If you make the trip to Honduras with me, DON’T leave the country without eating at Carnitas.
I usually eat very healthy and french fries are something I don’t eat a lot, but I celebrated on my birthday with this 3 pound platter of chili-cheese fries & a famous “burger from hell.” Wow, they both were outstanding.
I learned two things recently when Parker and I ate at Abuelo’s. First, the stacked enchiladas were crazy good. And second, if you’re going to eat at Abuelos without Lea, don’t tell her about it.
I absolutely adore apple pie. This one was amazing.
I just had to include this picture. Yes, believe it or not, that folks is a beet. NO I did NOT eat that, but recently when Lea and I were eating out, she actually put a beet on her plate. THEN to make it worse … SHE ATE IT. Later in the day she actually expected me to kiss her. Of course I obliged … just because it was my marital duty.
