Food Porn

Over the weekend I discovered porn.

Food porn.

I've talked a lot about how much I dislike cooking, and prefer baking. While cooking is becoming more habitual for me now, I still don't enjoy it very much. That doesn't mean I don't have a healthy appetite for great food photography. A pretty picture can make anything look appealing. Well, maybe anything but Yellow Squash. I'm not sure anything could make Squash look appealing to me. Regardless, I can get stimulated just like anyone else by stunning pictures of delicious, fresh food. But this is a step above even that. This is food porn. Like full-on, turn you on: Food Porn.


Now, when this video popped up (can't remember how I linked up to it - probably Pinterest), I was already in bed with my sleeping husband. For his sake, I watched with the sound off. (Yes, I'm a good wife, unless you count the fact that I brought my computer to bed in the first place.) This was a mistake. The right music does wonders for little montage videos such as this one. It helps them feel romantic and "rad," not ridiculously hipster-ish. So from the moment "Asparagus" was introduced by name - because none of us could identify the vegetable on sight - I was inwardly giggling. There was no cool music to tell me this was cool, just the sound of Tim breathing, rather loudly. Something about the "Pine Nuts" turned my naughty brain on, and then it was all downhill from there: the dribbling of the "Olive Oil," the slicing and zealous squeezing of the "Lemon".... gutter, gutter, gutter. 

So, since this is what friends do, I had to share the wealth. Fortunately, this is one guilty pleasure you don't have to feel guilty about. After all, it's a salad.
