Its for you...food edition

At the moment I am having a hard time thinking about anything but food.....Winter has arrived and seems to have brought me a bigger appetite *le sigh* I can tell I will have to go to gym alot this winter to balance things out ;)

Anyways, today I decided to do a food edition of my "its for you " post...
