Oonanineeneenay! Yes. I’m addicted to Nani’s Rotisserie Chicken. They brought me and Dawn one of their whole Piri Piri spice rubbed chickens, plus an array of their new Summer sides, and a salad! Good god, people. Do not sleep on Nani’s, or ever again, because you’ll want eat this food 24/7. The new sides are bomb. Light, fresh and refreshing. Dawn made a chopped salad out of everything. I constructed a plate. #dinnerfordays

Sometimes I cook at home. Last night at about 10pm, I made a little steak with teeny taters, broccoli, and teriyaki glace. It was tasty AF.

My mom and I went on up to the Sunset Terrace at The Omni Grove Park Inn with friends. We shared the pork rillons, which were delicious. My mom got her favorite Lobster Cobb salad in Asheville, and I had a very tastee pastrami sandwich. We also got citrus creme brûlée, which was excellent. And the view was spectacular of course.

Hi! If you’re a food maker, and you’re looking at my latest Food Feed [last week], and you’re thinking to yourself, “The Malvern Asheville again? HomeGrown again? Nani’s Rotisserie Chicken AGAIN??? When the heck is this guy gonna come try MY food?”

I am always super happy and excited to try new food, of course!

First please make sure that I am aware of yours. Maybe I ain’t know. If you want me to know, make sure I know! ?

Also, I don’t drive, so it’s not always easy for me to get everywhere. If it’s possible for us to arrange to get your food to me at my home-office, let’s do that!

I’m super easy to reach, and I don’t dislike any categories of food so, if you’d like me to feature your food in the Food Feed, let’s figure it out!
