Today’s Blogtober16 prompt is simply 10 favourite foods.
Being a bit of a foodie I have to say I have many more than 10 favourites so I’ll have to cut them down.
When I was young I had problems with food, I must have drove my mum insane. She never made me separate meals though, I had to eat what I was given or go without. When I turned vegetarian at thirteen she said ok you get egg and chips everyday! Good job I didn’t decide to be a vegan then.
I didn’t stay vegetarian for more than three years though, which is a shame because I could live quite easily without meat, it’s just more difficult once you are part of a meat eating family and you are cooking for them.
Also, I didn’t eat fish as a child. As an adult I only ate salmon and tuna and despised white fish. Now, I’d say I love fish. I don’t know what happened, maybe my taste buds changed once I reached forty, but I now like fish much more than I like meat.
Lets get on with it, here are my top 10 favourite foods that make me happy. Not in any particular order, just 10 of the best.
1. Cake! I love cake, fruit cake, sponge cake, chocolate cake, carrot cake even beetroot cake. I love decorating cakes too but I’ve lost a lot of my skills this year now my hands hurt. Here is a recipe for a recent cake I made which is currently my favourite. Toffee Apple and Pecan cake.
8. Bento: When I go out for lunch with my eldest daughter we either go for sushi or bento. This is little compartments of delicious food served in a box. Then afterwards we always go for a Matcha Tiramisu which is delightful.
10. Pie: Whether it’s meat, fruit or vegetable I really love pie. probably because I really love pastry. I don’t even mind which kind of pastry covers my pie, puff, shortcrust, water crust even suet. In this post my kid in the kitchen give you both savoury and sweet pie recipes.
My daughter has begged me to include Cheese Sticks because she loves, and my Other Half’s favourite is home made curry. My eldest daughter loves something that actually made me feel ill when I tried it, it’s called Takoyaki…look it up, but it contains something with tentacles yuk!
