Food as a hobby, it's not what you think

So, I've been in need of a new hobby/interest that is relaxing fun and healthy.  I'm not very good at relaxing and everything that could potentially be a hobby, ends up being part of my work in some way.  This is ironic considering I am writing a blog post for "work" about how I found something that won't be work related...haha!  I guess it's just impossible to separate work and life when your a self-employed creative, so I'll just embrace it!  Anyways, the point of this post is to say I'm taking on food as my hobby.  Not going to foodie restaurants or cooking per se, but learning about food.  I'm interested in so many aspects, such as: growing food, the manufacturing of food, cooking, health benefits or detriments of certain foods.  I really enjoy gaining knowledge about things and thinking critically about why we do what we do. 
I'll be visiting my best friend in San Luis Obispo this weekend.  Her and her husband have been on a food journey for a long time now and I love learning and sharing with them.  I have so many questions for them about my vegetable garden, juicing, food policy...the list goes on and on.
Here's a few things I've eaten lately and enjoyed:
First heirlooms from our tomato plant!
 Homemade potato chips, Ruby loved these!
 Breakfast this week.
 Lunch with my sister-in-law at Forage.



Those homemade potatoe chips look soooo delicious!!! Send me some over via the interwebs, LOL!
