March has been a great month with great food photos. Taking a photo a day proved more challenging than I expected, as some days I could easily take 3 or 4 photos and other days I struggled to take one – left over days! But when I look back on these 31 photos I smile, as all of them bring back happy memories. I still am in love with Instagram and will continue to take photos of food but this challenge has come to an end. Here is a quick run down of the 31 days and 31 photos.
Day 1: This was what I found inside a jar of Australian Veggiemite. I quite like the idea of a picture in the lid. I wonder if all jars contain emus or if each jar differs?
Day 2: Fruit, a delicious mid morning snack and the photo was also part of Fatmumslim‘s March Photo a day challenge.
Day 3: Meringues! What else do you do with left over egg whites?
Day 4: The best choc-chip cookie dough!
Day 5: Yummy choc-fudge-chip cookies!
Day 6: Cookies ready to be given to special friends.
Day 7: The most amazing risotto from Donna Hay’s Simple Dinners cook book!
Day 8: Stir-fry made by a friends husband, who was very excited to make the blog!
Day 9: A quick snack, cereal. I was craving chocolate and this was the closest I could get.
Day 10: Butternut soup for lunch.
Day 11: Chocolate moose, another Donna Hay recipe!
Day 12: This photo is a mistake, it did not actually appear in the challenge, but that can happen when you take so many food photos! It is of the meringue cake top!
Day 13: The remains of the chocolate moose meringue cake!
Day 14: Delicious chicken pie made by a friend, revelling her amazing cooking talent.
Day 15: Mum’s pasta made by me! Salmon, spinach and phili! Good comfort food!
Day 16: Oodles of noodles! Dinner made by a friend.
Day 17: Chocolate box shared with friends.
Day 18: Hummingbird Bakery in London! Sadly I only walked past and could not go in, but I will return shortly!
Day 19: Mini dim sum!
Day 20: Sweetheart sweets at a wedding party.
Day 21: Digging in the school garden I found the worlds smallest potato. It was the size of a thumb nail.
Day 22: Chocolate mini eggs!
Day 23: Chocolate covered raisins, a secret love of mine!
Day 24: The lid says it all! It was a beautiful hot day, which felt like summer and everyone was talking about ice cream, so I had to go buy some.
Day 25: Delicious Pizza from Strada!
Day 26: Lemon lemon lemonade! So refreshing on a beautiful spring day!
Day 27: Ben and Jerry’s Chocolate Ice cream! Mid week treat!
Day 28: Delicious chocolate brownie and cookie, which was my dessert on a garden course I attended.
Day 29: A cup of mini eggs to get me through the day, from my colleague.
Day 30: A Easter gift from one of my students. A little chocolate cake.
Day 31: A perfect day to end the food month challenge! Meeting Donna Hay! Such an honour!
This photo was meant to appear on this post but I made a mistake. It appears on the Instagram challenge. A before and after shot of breakfast, so I thought I’d just add it at the bottom.
