43/365 – Sassy Radish!

Web-denziens posting pictures of food on their blogs and Facebook profiles isn’t new, but it is definitely growing in popularity.  I, personally, find it annoying.  I really do not want to see some poorly taken iPhone photo of the Dim Sum you purchased at some sleazy Asian restaurant.  Unless you’re a professional food blogger, you’re taking a pic of a dish that you yourself created or a food inspector with a vendetta, I do not care.

You’re dish has neither strength nor unity. Inspection failed!

As I said, a food blogger has a purpose for the pictures they post.  They inform, they entice and they usually know whet they are talking about.  Taking a pic of something you ordered from Burger King and posting it with the description, “Hamburger,” doesn’t really do it for me.  If you made that Hamburger, buy all means, post, but make sure its pretty and you describe it accurately and eloquently enough for me to want to smash through my computer screen and gnaw on the LED display in hope for a simple taste.

Alphabet soup so good!

Case in point.  Last night, Megan made a delicious Thai tomato soup.  It was amazing.  You need to understand, Megan and I never cook.  We’ve been heading to our friend’s Matt and Rachel’s every Sunday to watch The Walking Dead and partake in their culinary expertise.  Megan decided it was high time we returned the favor.  And she did – with a bang.  And where did she get the idea from?  From Suzie Take-Out’s Facebook post of her Saturday meal at The Cubby Bear when she was loaded and ready for casual sex?  Nope.  She got it form a fantastic food blog: Sassy Radish.
