Hello! Are you ready for food?
I'm trying to get this out a little early tonight because Courtney and I are going out soon!
It's awesome having someone from home here right now. And she met one of my new friends, so that's even more exciting. I mean we haven't done that much, pretty much just walked around and went to the Ferry Building. I have to build her up to walking everywhere, because most people are not used to walking so much.
Braedon is doing so well right now. He has been getting a little less grouchy and moves around everywhere. He started crawling, well kind of!
I made my pulled pork tonight, oh my god, it is seriously my favorite meal that I make.
I fell in love with an apartment that we saw the other day. Gareth, not so much. Makes me feel a little sad that he doesn't want it!
I really want to figure out how to market doing meal planning, shopping, and prepping for people, I know it's been done, but I really don't like some of those services. I think I could do it better. If you know anything, let me know!
Also, food photography, that is so my thing. I love doing it so much. I am looking for new customers, if you are in the Bay Area, I'm talking to you! Just contact me and let me know what's going on!
I took some amazing pictures of Shepherd's pie the other day, so amazing, that I really wanted to give you guys the recipe. If you have never had shepherd's pie, you are missing out. It's a very meat and potatoes type of food. Braedon loved eating it, he ate almost my entire plate!
