Introducing The Gallery of Half Eaten Food: Winter Feast Edition

I could never be a food blogger.

I do not share this fatal flaw. My improvement opportunity is that I love food so much, the absolutely last thing I am thinking about when faced with a fresh plate, juices juicing, aromas a roaming, is sharing. I just have to have at it as fast as humanly possible.
