bosom of my family

I’m homey home home! Homey McHomerson! Homity home!

It is so, so, so, miraculous, to go home, and HAVE YOUR MOTHER MAKE YOU DINNER.

Oh the joy!

And yknow, the apple didn’t fall far from the tree.


So we have a gorgey sweet potato, oven baked (microwaving them is soooooooo much faster but oven baking them just tastes soooooooo much better), along with


Spinach salad dressed with


My mama’s dressing that I was craving so much the other day- seriously, just oil, vinegar, and HANDFULS of whatever fresh herbs we have on hand- on this particular occasion, the usual parsley and the last of the chives and oregano from the deck.

Finally, tilapia:


My mom was all “Arrgh, the food blogger’s back, I have to make this look pretty!”

I am exhausting.

I love home so much!

hahah love the quote your mom said about the food blogger's back! My brother used to say that to me all of the time at home. That dressing is such a great idea! And so simple too :)

That last quote is too funny. I don't even know if my mom knows I blog; she might just think I like to photograph things
