Food Porn Colombia

 

I love food.  I love to cook food, I love to eat food.  Its really no surprise I’ve put on at least 10 pounds sine I’ve arrived in South America.  I mean, 

THEY HAVE EMPANADAS AND ICECREAM!!!!!

And yes, I am one of those people that take photos of what I eat (when I’m not so in awe of my food that I star lovingly at it for a few seconds before I scarf it down).  So here are a bunch of photos of food I have eaten while in Colombia….  enjoy.

Yup, so that’s some of the things I’ve been doing down here. 

Nom Nom Nom peoples!
