|Delicious gift from my mother-in-law! They make even the simplest salad seem divine.|

I LOVE food. Good food. This is something I've known for a long time, but as I looked around my home to photograph objects that were important to me many things having to do with food kept popping up. As I take a moment to ask myself why, I realize we have worked really hard to change the way we eat. I spent a lot of time eating Hamburger Helper (which I still can't eat to this day!), Suddenly Salad, and other packaged foods when I was young. My dad worked hard to make sure we had meals together, but I don't think he really knew how to cook and he surely didn't have the time to learn. Matt and I eat mostly whole, fresh foods, try to avoid white flour and sugar, and eat little meat. Don't get me wrong, we are not at all perfect in our diets - we (mostly) tend to eat too much of the good things we make and I (always) struggle to get the sweets out of my life, but we've come a loooong.
