Happy Tastebuds

So I still don't have my camera cord back, but I just realized I have so many old pictures of food I can talk about! As I explained in my first post, I've had a habit of taking pictures of my food for a while.


One of my favorite restaurants in Athens in the 5 and 10. It's owned by a well renowned chef who creates their incredibly delicious, seasonally changing menu. The restaurant has a very good relationship with local farmers, so the food is always as fresh and high quality. They also have an extensive wine list. Sorta of a pricey, so you need a special occasion to go there. Here are some mouth-watering pics from my 21st birthday dinner in September:

The bread before dinner.

The grouper special with potatoes, hericot verts, fresh cucumber, basil, and brown butter vinaigrette. Tastes even better than it sounds! 

Cheers to good food and friends!

I didn't get I chance to take a picture of the dessert before we dove in. I don't remember exactly what it was, but I do remember that it involved chocolate mousse and toffee...

My roommate and I are making salmon with pineapple salsa for dinner! It looks wonderful, so look forward to those pics (and recipe) soon!!

Thanks for commenting on my blog! I temporary lived in Athens after graduating from college. I never ate at 5 and 10 but I heard it was delish and your pictures seem to prove that correct. I loved Earth Fare and was a big fan of The Grit :) Had it been easier to find a professional job I probably would have stayed longer - but I had fun while I was there. It's such a cute little town.
