Sunday Stills (7/31/11 Ethnic Foods)

This week's challenge is to photograph ethnic foods. Well, I haven't had many sit down meals lately because I've been
  1. Working late most nights
  2. Went to the horse show Thursday and Friday evenings
  3. Usually eating alone since both of my live-at-home kids go out most nights.
A bowl of ice cream with a banana or a salad and a piece of chicken is usually the extent of my dinner. Plus, I've gained 5-8 pounds with my forced inactivity from my broken ankle so I try not to eat too much. Unfortunately, that doesn't work very well since I have a Coke addiction and the fountain drinks are only $.52 at our local Circle K gas station convenience stores.

Anyway, tonight, I had some guacamole and tortilla chips. Alas, I didn't think to take a picture until several hours after it was made. It was a beautful bright green earlier but avocado turns black when exposed to air.
Oh well, anyway, here are my offerings:

Guacamole and tortilla chips

Homemade pizza from an archives photo
Fried chicken and watermelon
Garlic bread, salad, and lasagne, also archived
Okay, now I'm hungry...

I love ice cream! But only a couple times a year. It is best with Grape Nuts on it. It don't know how ethnic it is. Maybe if you wore a sombrero while you ate it.

Me too - hungry that is.

Fried Chicken and watermelon are Southern ethnic - I'm originally from Tennessee.

I totally had a coke addiction too for years! Luckily, I was very picky and only liked it when it was made with sugar. The hfcs was so sweet.
Now, unfortunately, I found some Mexican Coke (ethnic food?) but I do limit myself. I switched to Blueberry iced tea to get off the coke. Yummy foods - I am hungry now too!

Guac and chips are totally a yummy meal! Just add margaritas and you're all set :)
