Our random meal of the day brings us a Mediterranean Greek dish of Chicken Souvlaki. This delicious dish consists of "skewered chicken marinated in garlic, black pepper and oregano, with grilled vegetables, rice and homemade tzatziki."
New camera season is upon us and I am still resisting the new Nikon D800. Well, it is kind of sold out everywhere so the resisting part is a bit easier. The biggest reason for wanting the new Nikon D800 is well, I get a lot of, " that is an nice camera" when people pass by my desk with my food photos as my screen saver. So with a new fancy camera, the camera should be able to produce even better mouth watering photos. Hmm, how about the camera enthusiast knucklehead that is positioned directly behind said camera ;)

Welcome Random Mealers, today we celebrate the three year anniversary of my Nikon D700! It has been a fantastic 3 years of shooting. The funny thing is that for many years before this, I was a Canon shooter. I actually had 3 different APS-C Canon DSLRs before I bought my first Nikon. When I received the Nikon, oh boy, that was quite a transition. All the buttons and functions were all over the place and I had to keep referring to the manual over and over. Yet, the switch was so worth it. Three hard but yet magical months later, the first Random Meal of The Day post was photographed with this magical Nikon D700...
We have for our random meal of the day an order of Eggs Benedict for lunch ;) I always enjoy breakfast and sometime it is great for lunch also. The eggs benedict was fantastic.

Our random meal of the day brings us an order of Dried Scallop with Silk Tofu. The dried scallop is actually shredded into the sauce and spread though out the dish. It is also a leafy dish.
On a tangent, I must resist the new Nikon D800. It was just released yesterday. I must resist...

Our random meal of the day brings us one of the most fantastic Fried Egg Sandwich. The sandwich consists of "toasted sourdough bread, nueske's thick cut bacon, gruyère cheese, aioli". This has to be the best bacon ever! The sandwich seems just so simple yet the taste and textures are so complex. A side of Spanish chorizo home fires completes this random meal that I will be back for.

We have a fantastic Angus Beef Tri-Tip Sandwich for our random meal of the day. Santa Maria style salsa is normally layered on top of the beef but I asked them to put it on the side so that the beef can shine. A leafy side salads completes this random meal.
