Mass Eats

Hi. It's been a while, hasn't it? I apologize for the hiatus, things have gotten in the way - you know, school, work, animal YouTube videos (make sure to watch all three).

But now it's winter break, and I'm partly-sad-partly-ecstatic to have missed the blizzard in New York and Boston, and am perpetually damp (thanks to the 87% humidity) but well fed at home in Honolulu. The photographs in this post are in chronological order of when they were made or consumed, and the majority are from somewhere in Massachusetts.

And again, my disclaimer: If you have no immediate access to food or have no desire to become hungry again because you just ate an enormous dinner, I strongly advise you to close this window and come back another time. I promise these pictures aren't going anywhere!

Alright, those of you who are ready -

Nosh Shots time!
