foodie loot.

One of the perks of working on photo shoots is definitely scooping up the swag at the end. Usually I come out with samples of girly beauty products, which are functional, but typically unnecessary. Today, however, I snagged some very useful things:


Yes, the flowers are functional: for atmosphere and peace of mind.

As soon as I realized I would be able to take some herbs home, I began scheming my evening meal.  Easy weeknight recipe:

salmon with lemon and sage

  • 1 piece of salmon
  • 1/2 T evoo 
  • 1/2 T lemon juice
  • 1-2 T fresh sage, chopped
  • 1/4 t black pepper

Broil salmon about 7 minutes. Mix other ingredients; rub over salmon when finished cooking.

salmon, vegetables, asparagus

On the plate with roasted zucchini, asparagus, and peppers, and a thick slice of swag bread.

What’s the best thing you’ve ever snagged for free?

    My favorite freebies are books… especially the ones that are still in draft because then I feel special for having the honor of reading them before they’re officially released :).

  10. Wow, that is a great snag!

    Best thing I snagged for free–all the furniture that I have been given from my mother, my mother in law, my grandmother and my great aunt. I have some amazing pieces from the 1930s that are made with such incredible craftsmanship that you couldn’t buy stuff this great anymore!

    Happiness Awaits
