Food Festivities Part 2: Black & White

Black & white photos taken a few months ago while out and about.


Spring River-fest In Color

The downtown River-fest is one of my favorite local events. I absolutely love food trucks and I’m happy that this city has decided to embrace the growing food truck culture. I’ll admit though, it is very overwhelming for me with all of the wonderful sights and smells everywhere! I’m always so tempted to try all of the different foods on display that I sometimes forget to photograph it. It’s also very difficult to take pictures and eat at the same time, but somehow I still manage to multitask! 😉

Here are a few color selections of the people, pets, and food from this beautiful day posted in chronological order.

Homemade Chicken Sausage Breakfast

Hello all! I wanted to share a photo of a tasty breakfast I prepared a few weeks ago. It consists of homemade chicken sausage, baked hand-cut yellow potatoes, and egg substitute with melted American cheese.

My Personal “Cobb” Salad

This beautiful and delicious Cobb salad was prepared by my beautiful model friend and aspiring chef, Vanessa Cobb. I guess that makes this literally a real Cobb salad? 🙂 It was awesome! Thank you V!!! For those wondering, this salad was prepared with romaine lettuce, cherry tomatoes, cucumbers, bleu cheese crumbles, turkey bacon, boiled eggs, and honey mustard dressing.

Mama Goldberg

I love stopping by Mama Goldberg’s and getting my favorite salad. All of the salads are delicious, the proportions are great and there seems to be an endless amount of ingredients to choose from! Here is my personal combination.

I usually order mine with:

Grilled chicken

Sun Dried Tomatoes

Black Olives

Mushrooms

Carrots

Baby Corn

Feta Cheese

As for the dressing, that depends on what I’m in the mood for but I typically order some type of vinaigrette.

Baked Parmesan Garlic Wings

These delicious wings were a test recipe prepared by the lovely Terri White. I was chosen to be the guinea pig for this tasty experiment and let me just say that it was totally worth it!!! I would love to list the ingredients used in this dish but, since it is not my personal recipe I honestly don’t know what what used to prepare them? If and when I find out that information I’ll be more than happy to share it with everyone.

Uptown Vietnamese Cuisine

One of my favorite restaurants in town featuring one of my favorite dishes, Com Gà and Gỏi Cuốn Gà (not pictured) Roughly translated it’s marinated grilled chicken over jasmine rice, chopped salad drizzled with scallion oil, and fish sauce (nuoc mam).
