I love this weeks Monday’s Listacles (visit http://Northwestmommy.com) it’s all about FOOD! Being a Foodie this is right up my alley but how in the world do I make a 10 item list about food? So I decided to tell you some things I love that are FOOD related. I apologize for not having lots of pretty pictures today but I get to spend some Raime time (my daughter) today and I need to get a move on!
1. My favorite time of the day is breakfast, the quiet of it all, every single day is a cup of latte with a pinch of brown sugar in the bottom and a sprinkle of vanilla sugar on the top…4 shots of espresso to get the day going and a slice of cinnamon loaf cake (from Wal-mart of all places…I have tried to recreate this and just haven’t gotten it as good as theirs lol…any help with that would be great. I eat this just as pictured on the top of this post, nothing fancy just my favorite napkins and my favorite cup.
2. I love to cook for anyone and everyone but my favorite is My family..mostly The Hubby, The Daughter & her Boyfriend &, The Son.they are my biggest fans and my biggest critics. They all love to cook as well and they love to eat. Our vacations and get togethers are more about food than the destination lol.
3. My favorite restaurant – The Cheesecake Factory – Pasta Da Vinci, of which I recreated my own version…yum…and then of course The Cheesecake…all of it. Well and now that we are talking about it the stuffed mushrooms and the garlic mashed potatoes..Let’s get real just love the place!
4. Love Love Love Pasta – pasta all kinds, all sorts of ways….! I crave it even more when I am sick – how weird is that!
5. My favorite thing to cook with is mushrooms – I throw them in anything I can!
6. Love love love my kitchen…I am a nut for kitchen stuff but I also have OCD so it’s organized like none other. My chef friend (hi Rusty) loves to just be turned lose in my kitchen. I love going to garage sales to find that treasure…my most recent – Circulon pans like new for a few dollars!
7. Love to talk about is FOOD – imagine that, I am always looking for new ideas, recipes, tips, hints…anything foodie…thus Bestfoodie Friends Sharing All Things Foodie….come on friends…SHARE!!!
8. I love that food brings people together…so many important things have been discussed, laughed at, decided and cherished over food.
9. I love that food plays on all of my senses, I love the sound food makes when its cooking, the way it smells, the way it looks so pretty, the way it feels in my hands when I create things and most of all the way it tastes.
10. Lastly, the one thing I hate about food….the fact that too many people don’t get to enjoy their food, that there isn’t enough, that its only a means of nourishment, as survival, and not as something that is enjoyed.
