It’s been kind of cold and rainy here in Fargo, ND and that is not good for taking pictures! I just want it to be bright outside because that is when the sun is shining through our big living room window the most! I’ve been doing a lot of research reading about food photography and studying food photos and all I’ve been wanting to do is take pictures of food lately. I took the pic above on a bright sunny day and it turned out much better than some pictures of fruit I was trying to take today.
This Crock Pot Teriyaki pork recipe is best served over a big bowl of rice. I found that out on Sunday when I wanted to try just eating it with some pineapple and fresh herbs on top. Nope. Was trying to be healthy but failed big time. This pork however would be great with some rice, pork, and pineapple on top!
For some extra sweetness I added in some pineapple juice.
