I love food but I’m not a foodie in the popular sense. I generally don’t enjoy eating out & prefer to make my own food. On that topic…
What is fancy food?
Is it the cost of the ingredients?
The time you spend making the meal?
I don’t know what is or isn’t fancy. Every fortnight I blog my grocery receipts for others to see. I feel like that’s kinda useful but also not, seeing as I don’t meal plan or use recipes & I often make things on a total whim.
That’s how my brain works – so take what inspiration you need from my grocery lists!
To help you out with your cooking/shopping, I thought I would do a fortnightly wrap up of what I’ve eaten. My breakfast is usually something like a peanut butter sandwich on the go, so I’m going to exclude boring crap like that.
If there is something you’re interested in, please let me know and I’ll do my best to write a recipe – but I rarely make things the same way twice, so it will probably be a vague guideline.
Here’s what I’ve eaten (well, what food I’ve taken photos of) in the past fortnight:
So there you have it. Fancy? Not fancy? I have no idea. It’s food. I like it. This is way beyond my self imposed acceptable levels of eating out though – the little extras of chickens or take away for lunches add up a lot. But it was also pretty repsresnetative of a very tiring fortnight, and sometimes you do what you do to get through!
Which meal do you like best?

Oh my god Vanessa that made me hungry (am yet to have Breakfast). I often see your pics on Instagram etc and like that you have a wide variety of food. I eat the same thing all of the time and am so not a foodie. I’m a fussy eater so fancy foods often aren’t an option for me!
Haha sorry! I do like a variety, but it’s all a pretty basic selection of food that we eat.
I am a big fan of simple foods, sometimes they taste just as good as “fancy” foods!!
Sometimes I feel like fancy just covers up food 🙂
I’ll just have the sweet potato fries thanks! I am happy with food in general fancy or not fancy as long as it tastes good.
They were so good! But so many of them I couldn’t finish them.
Oh wow!!! Now Im starving. Geez your good taking all your foodie photos! Good work! xx
Sorry 🙂 I’m not much of a patient “proper” food photographer because FOOD!
Sweet potato chips for the win. Followed by the toasties. I like my food simple!
I get bored with toasties so quickly but they’re such an easy work lunch.
Yeah, no fancy stuff here either. My boys are fusspots. We eat a lot of chicken. It looks like you had a fair amount of veggies there to balance out the take aways. And I’m an olive girl, too. *drools*
Love chicken! It’s our staple meat. You can do so much with it. I love my veggies too – ever since we stopped buying them in supermarkets and started buying them locally we’ve eaten heaps more because they taste nicer.
You should put a warning at the start of this post. I’ve just eaten dinner and the pics made me hungry again! Fancy food according to me — food that costs a lot and you’re still hungry after. Did it once thanks to a choice by an acquaintance for her birthday…gah!
Haha I like that definition. Will post warnings on future posts 🙂
Some of my faves here too – Sweet potato chips I could eat every day and i love rice paper rolls too.
Now I am droolling.
