The United Plates

I discovered these delightful and pretty darling prints on Serious Eats and became entranced. I find them reminiscent of really wonderful children's books illustrations.

What, exactly, are they? Their website says, "This is a fun series of prints where each state's outline was drawn as the food it resembles (not necessarily the food the state produces)."

While I do wish that they were drawn as the food the state is best known for/produces -- I'm envisioning an Oregon made of a pile of hazelnuts -- I still think they're whimsical and sweet. And at only $15 a pop, you can't go wrong!

In honor of the fun foodiness of them, I share with you the states in which I have lived, in the order in which I lived in them:

Oregon's my fave of these. Love that spaghetti & meatballs!

And just for kicks, here's one for hubby (this one's my favorite of them all, actually):
