That stands for National Irritate a Food Pic Hater Food Pic Posting Week.  It’s a silly blog meme being hosted this week by Yabu, who I don’t know anything about other than he seems to be friends with Laura, who curses a lot on her hilarious blog about dinosaurs, fingernail polish and the benefits of gin and circus peanuts.

The conceit is that both of these bloggers have received snide comments about posting pictures of their food on their blogs.  I’ve read similar expressions of superiority on various online forums, comics, whatever.  The basic sentiment is “Silly blogger, what makes you think your food is so hot?”

Our basic sentiment is “Silly commenter, what makes you care so much what I post on my blog?”  And so a bunch of us are posting as many food pics as we can, I guess to irritate such people.  Or maybe I’m just doing it because it sounds like fun, and I don’t have time to think much, or write much, so this way I get credit for having a blog post this week.

Besides, I know my food is hot, because Miss Chef is cooking tonight.

Roasted free-range, organic, compost-eating, possibly heirloom variety yardbird:



Bubbling hand-cut fries from these ginormous locally-grown potatoes (figures for perspective, and maybe I’ll get extra points, because it’s GUMBY, dammit!):







Oh, and some green beans, because Miss Chef has this thing about feeding me vegetables.  She’ll probably serve me an apple for dessert.



My pictures look kind of crappy because I’m supposed to be grading presentations and oral quizzes, so I didn’t take the time to fix the lighting or anything.  I will take time to fix a big ol’ plate of them fries, though.


  1. Thanks for stopping by, that is my type of eating. Have a good night.

    1. Anytime--I'm a big fan of food pics.

  2. Hahaha! The best kind of protest, in my opinion!

    And you get extra, extra points for Pokey there too :)

  3. Yes, Pokey is bonus points!

    1. Pokey is amazed by our giant potato.

  4. What's wrong with food pics, for goodness sake? Love yours, by the way!

    1. I know, right? There's a hater for everything, I guess. I'm kind of in love with the fries pic, myself. :)

  5. I LOVE that you included Gumby and Pokey in the food pics. Hilarious.


Thanks for dropping by--please share your thoughts!
