happy holidays

cheesy christmas portraitcheesy christmas portrait

No holiday season is complete without those cheesy portraits that you put on your Christmas cards, right? We had originally talked about wearing ugly Christmas sweaters and actually going to a department store studio to take them but obviously that fell through. This is close enough, right?

at tartine

Since I will be in LA from 12/22 to 1/15, BF and I are trying to squeeze in as much time together this week as we can. Yesterday we went to Tartine for morning buns and coffee then Bi-Rite to prepare for the beef stew that we were planning to make in the slow cooker. He had been trying to get reindeer meat for it but apparently they sold out! I've had venison but never reindeer so it would have been interesting to try.

latte from tartine

We actually weren't able to eat the damn stew until 11pm since we started the day quite late so we had to improvise in between. I picked out this cheese, La Tur, made from goat's, cow's, and sheep's milk. Brent wasn't too happy with but I was pleased, it was nice and creamy with a tangy rich flavor. Oh well, more cheese for me.

Enjoy the holiday in LA!

i love your food pictures, and i'm amazed at how fast you got used to your dslr. it took me months, and a year to work with manual.
i keep coming back to your blog, i adore your posts.

Steph said...

Haha
I love cheesy X-mas photos. My bosses at my internship made the best x-mas card which basically was each of their faces photoshopped into a photo of the whole post birth of jesus scene. Possibly the most hilarious thing ever.
