Last night’s dinner — a pretty presentation.
Comfort food is one of my favorite food categories, and last night’s dinner will be earmarked as one of my new favorites. My mother-in-law cooked, and the meal was cheesy polenta with sauteed greens and two sunny-side up eggs layered on top. A hot, decadent meal that still packs nutritional value, this was a treat!
If there’s one thing I have learned about food in the last eight or so years, it’s that presentation goes a really long way. Simple care in how your food is arranged on your plate can elevate even the easiest thing — whether it is putting your bagel on a real plate in lieu of a paper one, or creating meals that you look at and say to yourself, “That’s pretty.” It’s true what they say — you eat with your eyes first! I appreciate pretty presentation so much and I try to make an effort with whatever I’m eating to make it appeal to more than just one or two of my senses.
