My Favorite Food Snaps of 2011

As I was getting my blog post ready for today, I realized instead of writing a regular post, I need to start writing my year-end roundups. For some reason it completely slipped my mind that New Years is this weekend and 2011 is just about over. I feel like it was just a few months ago that I was doing my Favorite Food Snaps of 2010 and here I am again. How quickly the time speeds by!

2011 was filled with food. And I love doing posts of all of my favorite photos from the year because, not only are they fun to look at, but I have a better understanding of why I needed to buy the next size up when I bought pants last month.

Here’s why:

Plenty of hearty brunches and loads of eggs. Yum!
