Hi all, did you have a nice weekend? I hope you did! I had a super busy weekend and I’m still very tired from it. Well yesterday was the busiest as I photographed my first Bat Mitzvah! I usually don’t photograph events like this (I do mostly portraits and food) but made an exception for a client. I’m so glad I did. It was AMAZING! All I’m going to say is her parents will have a very hard time topping this one at her wedding day. I seriously wanted to be a guest and dance the night away
Today it was all about recovering (being on your feet, carrying heavy equipment around your shoulder, and moving up and down for 11 hours will leave you exhausted)! I don’t care how fit you are, this is hard work man!). Anywhooo, where was I? Oh yeah, so I slept in, went to the gym, grocery store, cooked this meal for dinner, and photographed it. That’s it! It was exactly what my body and brain needed.
Now I’m ready to face a new and productive week.
Do you ever cook a meal that makes your kitchen smell like heaven? When you sear meat covered in spices like this dish, that will do it. I guarantee you will want to devour this dish as you cook it. The aroma is so intense (in a good way) and it’s packed with lots of flavor, and so delicious!
I think this is a restaurant quality meal that you can complete in 30 minutes! Seriously, it can’t get better than that.
