Weekly Photo Recap: Bowls, Plates and Baskets of Food

Posted on June 13, 2016 by Lindsay

I have to say, I am pretty damn proud of myself for keeping up with my weekly photo recap posts. The recaps have served their initial purpose of getting me back into photography and I am so grateful! I didn’t realize how much I missed it until it was back in my life. I imagine the recaps will become harder to pull off the more I have to do over the next months but hopefully I will keep at it with the same amount of enthusiasm.

Ok so this week I took a lot of food photos. It’s a little repetitive but I love food photos so I’m not going to complain about it. Leggo!

MONDAY

I caught a press screening of The Conjuring 2 and was so happy that it was an enjoyable sequel. I LOVED the first film so it was nice to have equally positive remarks about the follow-up. (Read those thoughts by clicking the links!)

TUESDAY

I briefly tried to take some action shots of the dog on Tuesday and this was my best shot from the bunch:

To be fair, I was training her on her STAY and COME commands with treats while also attempting to operate the camera. Next time, I’ll enlist Jason’s help.

After playing with the dog we ate dinner at Hamilton Tavern. Yes, that’s the place I raved about last week. No, I’m not ashamed to admit it.

WEDNESDAY

Jason’s work was nice enough to invite me out to their company outing to an Orioles game at Camden Yards!

I didn’t eat dinner beforehand so Jason and I checked out our ballpark food options. Loaded Kettle Chips from The Chipper sounded great. Jason wanted a regular but I was hungry so I insisted on a large. Little did I know what that portion size actually meant. This thing was bigger than my head and weighed about the same.

THURSDAY

I celebrated my little brother’s High School graduation on Thursday! I’m so proud of him for sticking it out. I took some photos with him but he’d probably die if I posted them here so this is all you get:

Later in the evening, I attempted to record a podcast with the group but that was derailed (thanks laptop!) Then Jason and I finally booked some upcoming trips! I can’t wait to dish more on them later.

FRIDAY

It was fucking beautiful out Friday so I immediately thought about my favorite outdoor restaurant Annabel Lee Tavern. When I pitched the idea to my BFF/mind-reader Jess she freaked as I had beat her to the question minutes before she was about to ask it herself.

Annabel Lee has some of the best duck fat fries in the city! You can’t pass up the opportunity to get them.

I almost always pick out one of the restaurant specials, tonight being no exception to the rule. I got a shrimp scampi dish that was delish.

After dinner we went around the corner for drinks. Jess, Jason and Rob thought they would be cute “modeling” for me.

We popped in to Snake Hill. A great little bar that specializes in freshly grilled sausages. I must go back on an empty stomach.

SATURDAY

We spent a good part of our Saturday looking for a new car for yours truly. Fingers crossed, I’ll be finally driving a car made in this decade soon! We had a late lunch at this ridiculously good Thai food place Mayuree Thai Tavern. Everything we ordered there was flavorful and filling.

Here’s an overview starting with chicken skewers and peanut sauce –

Jason’s drunken noodles dish was so savory. Phenomenal flavor.

The same could be said about my green curry dish. I told Jason that eating curry puts me in a good mood and he said that’s the spices releasing endorphins. Whatever it is, I’ll take some more.

We also picked up a Thai iced coffee that was so good we had to order another one to go.

Later on Ellie got to swim in Jason’s mom’s pool for the first time this summer! She could barely contain herself when she noticed the pool cover was off. Once unleashed, she BOLTED in. If there is open water around there is no stopping her.

After grilling we had a nice peach & ice cream dessert. So good!

SUNDAY

I was on my A-Game Sunday. I knew we had plans in the evening so I got myself moving early. I decided on recipes, hit up the grocery store and cooked all of Jason & my lunches for the week. I had enough time to take the dog out for another swim before heading out.

We had dinner at the pizza joint Joe Squared and although the restaurant was extremely understaffed and scatter-brained (this was the Power Plant location) the pizza was still tasty.

After dinner we hurried over to see CHVRCHES perform at Ram’s Head Live. The band was fantastic! The lead singer Lauren has such an amazing voice and stage presence.

That capped off our great weekend. I’ll leave you with this picture of Jason and I trying to take a self-timed photo in the wind:
