Jen, that's a beautiful, beautiful photo! The lighting, the colors, shapes. So pretty!
Thank you. :) I was actually trying at that moment to capture pic of Calliope laying claim to the entire plate, but, by the time I had the camera all I mainly got photos of was the food plate, so, thought could be an entry here. :cool:

Aina is judging y'all health junkies.

"Chop? Phah! You p(h)easants! Only specialy cooked food is acceptable! And it MUST be checked and tasted by ME!"

Aina likes to pretend that she is the cook. In reality, she will eat only untouched fruits and veggies. If you cut it up, it's not good. Must be untouched. Directly from your hand. Must look like a theft.

Look at Aina's cool judgmental eyes! How many batches rejected for imperfections over the years? 😂

Absolutely counts as chop! Posting finished product with bird perfectly fine, extra credit for sharing recipe. Do you want image or video as "official" entry?
