The best way to spend a Friday night at home? A Lebanese food festival with the rents.
Richmond is known for it's food festivals, and while I haven't been able to attend once since I was little, this one did not dissappoint.
I ate SO much. Schwarma, falafel, baklava, stuffed grape leaves, cheese and spinach pies, and more desserts. My eyes are often much bigger then my stomach, but I managed somehow managed to eat more then I have in while. My mom and I just couldn't help ourselves. Everything just looked so delicious and we wanted to try new things too. I may or may not have even gone back for one of those cheese pies.
There was a ton of people there and they had Lebanese music and dancing as well. It was an absolute blast! All the people watching sparked an idea for a new series on here starting in the Fall. I have a little more bit of details to plan out, but I can't wait to get started with it!
Here are a couple snaps of our yummy food. I think I've decided that food is one of my very favorite things to photograph. I can't decide if this is a good or bad thing though.
