Awkward Food Photos: Pigs in a Blanket



I love me some food wrapped up in other food. So tasty. A classic example of this is the pig in a blanket. Now, this is a vegan blog so the only pigs in blankets are the ones sleeping at Woodstock Farm Animal Sanctuary in the big barn. But take any old veggie dog and wrap it with some dough or crescent dough and you go from a boring meal to a fun event in which your tastebuds will be wowed.

But what's with that food porn photo from your bocce potluck? A pile of wrapped dogs in a limpid tupperware that doesn't showcase the fun of eating food wrapped in other food.

This photo needs help!™

Put it on a piece of wood! Nothing says fun like a rustic wooden board. And double wrap those dang dogs. Two in one. Make sure it's a bit blurry or your eyeballs will be burned out by the sheer fun it is emanating.

F. would call these blankets without piggies. Because I recently started explainting to her that we don't eat amimals. Not she always checks and asks "No piggies? OK!"

You left out the picture of the entire troop surrounding their overlord, King Mustard.

That pictured DIDN'T need help. ™

Mmm, I love veggie pigs in a blanket! It looks so...appetizing...on the wood.

Hahaha! I actually put something on wood to take a photo of it the other day. Well, my bamboo chopping board. Pro.

I am suing you because one time I put cupcakes on my wood cutting board and they looked good but I forgot to trademark it so now I'm in a pickle.


- Please Retweet to avoid lawsuit.

As ever, you are so right about this. Expect many more pictures of vegan food on rustic wood from now on in the blogosphere!

Ahaha! This is almost as good as a tasteless tablescape.

I totally jazzed up my photo of a bowl of oatmeal by holding it up so it had the view of the sea out my window as a backdrop. ;D
