Macro shot of waffle

Day 73 – A waffle or two

“You should eat a waffle! You can't be sad if you eat a waffle!” ~ Lauren Myracle How true is that, waffles are happy and delicious but sadly not the most healthy food you can consume but sometimes you just have to have them anyway because life without waffles is not really a life at all!

Day 13 – Start the day

“When you wake up in the morning, Pooh," said Piglet at last, "what's the first thing you say to yourself?" "What's for breakfast?" said Pooh. "What do you say, Piglet?" "I say, I wonder what's going to happen exciting today?" said Piglet. Pooh nodded thoughtfully. "It's the same thing," he said.” ― A.A. Milne Pooh (aka A.A. Milne) definitely was a wise philosopher but on this one one he and I will have to disagree because I am not a breakfast person. My stomach just, well, can't stomach it. I rarely eat before lunchtime but the same can not be…

Day 311 – Pea-green

"I want everybody who's been mean to me to be pea-green with envy." ~ Scarlett O'Hara Scarlett is not the most likable of heroines. In fact many people really dislike her but I adore her. She is sassy, strong, determined and hugely resourceful. All traits that would be valued in a man but are frowned upon in a women. Sadly her upbringing meant she was very conflicted about herself and her role in society but it is that constant battle that makes her such a wonderfully interesting character to me.

All the vegetables in Borough Market

Day 278 – All the Vegetables

“Facts must be faced. Vegetables simply don't taste as good as most other things do.” ~ Peg Bracken I am going to have to disagree with Peg on that one. Sure, if you just boil them up in some water then you are definitely going to think this but if you cook them right then you should have a treat on your hands. There are not many vegetables I don't like. I can't eat cauliflower, there is something in it that gives me the most painful indigestion. On doing research I have found that apparently I am not alone in…

KFC chicken dinner

Day 273 – Chicken is the thing

"Now, occasionally I will still have that quarter pounder because I love fast food, but you have to keep it to a minimum." ~ Aretha Franklin I am pretty much with Aretha on this statement. We don't eat a lot of fast food because, quite frankly, it is crap food with no nutritional value, but every one in a while needs must. I can't stand McDonald's, you will only ever find me in one if there is absolutely no alternative or I am a little tipsy and fancy myself a Filet-o-Fish. Burger King on the other hand really does do…

Day 220 – Spoonful of sugar

"A Spoonful of sugar helps the medicine go down The medicine go down-wown The medicine go down Just a spoonful of sugar helps the medicine go down In a most delightful way" ~ Mary Poppins

Day 208 – Food explorer

“I am not a glutton - I am an explorer of food” ~ Erma Bombeck This! I love food. Pretty much all food too. I like meat, and fruit, and fish, and vegetables, and bread, and cheese, and.... Well you get the idea. I don't like Rhubarb, something about the way it goes mushy when you cook it just does not work for me. I am not keen on Rice Pudding for similar reasons. There are the odd other thing I am not keen on but there is a damn good reason I spend a fortune on a gym membership…

Rita's gelato Philadelphia sign with evening sky loves

Day 196 – Philly loves

"I believe gelato is meant to be treated as medicine and taken daily as a prescription." ~ Betsy Brandt I love Philadelphia. After London it is my favourite city. It has many wonderful things going for it, the people, the food, the shops, the weather, the history and so much more. I have many loves in the city, places, restaurant, shops etc and one of them is Rita's. We have nothing like this in the UK. Not a thing, it just doesn't exist. The ice cream van and parlours you get in some towns are nice but they don't even…

French Fries from KFC

Day 154 – A bit of French

“The French: a people who have used their sophisticated culture and beautiful language to bequeath to the world the sliced potato.” ~ Bauvard But of course the French don't actually call them that. They call them Pommes Frites or often simple Frites and here in England we call them Chips and what America calls chips we call Crisps. Being married to an American has made me realise just how different our two versions of English really are and even now after 5+ years together we still find words and phrases that the other has no idea what it means.  …

Day 119 – Pie delights

“We must have a pie. Stress cannot exist in the presence of a pie.” ~ David Mamet This quote made me chuckle. I have no idea how a pie eases stress but maybe it is because there is something so neat and perfect about them. In the UK, unlike in America, we are huge fans of the meat/savoury pie and when done well they are basically a whole meal, meat and vegetables all wrapped up in delicious pastry. We do sweet pies as well but here in the UK a pie shop will be predominantly selling savoury delights. We didn't…

Day 105 – Cinnamon loves

“I am not a glutton - I am an explorer of food” ~ Erma Bombeck I am very blessed to married to a man who loves to cook and not just meals, he is also is a regular and very enthusiastic baker. Our house often smells of delicious things he is creating in the kitchen. As a result I am a regular attendee at the gym mainly so I can happily enjoy eating delicious things that he makes like this cinnamon buns.
