I don’t think it would be possible to list all of my favourite foods and drinks, I could write about the different tastes I like all day, I’ve no doubt every time I think I’d have the list finished I would think of something else! I have created this short list however, I’m not sure it says much about me as such, other than I like eating and drinking!!!
Coffee – I love coffee, I used to have at least three big
buckets mugs of it before breakfast, really not good for you and I wouldn’t recommend it, I’ve cut back to 3-4 a day.
Dark Chocolate – Preferably Green & Blacks, though I did have some Iswari Raw Chocolate recently, it was heavenly. Dark chocolate is a relatively new favourite for me, I used to prefer milk chocolate but it holds no appeal for me anymore.
Nuts – I love nuts, I’m not sure I have a favourite, I don’t think there are any I dislike…..pecans on my porridge, cashews with my stir fry, walnuts combined with coffee, brazil nuts coated with chocolate, almonds with everything!!
Red Wine – I do enjoy a glass of red wine, I really do……
Mince Pies – They are Christmas, the festive season begins when I make the mincemeat, that first mince pie of the season is an occasion in itself. I absolutely love them!!
Scallops – Cooked simply, in garlic butter, with a little green salad on top of fabulous sourdough bread……my mouth is watering as I type…..
Smoked Salmon – I do enjoy a nice piece of smoked salmon, and it’s so versatile, wonderful paired with scrambled egg, delicious on an open sandwich, no seafood platter is complete without it.
Goats Cheese – If I had to choose a favourite cheese, it would be Goats Cheese, it’s so delicious. If you are ever in Wexford, treat yourself to a meal in Warren Gillen’s Cistín Eile, he serves the best Goats Cheese dish I have ever tasted, it’s divine.
Tia Maria – I haven’t had it in years, but it is lovely, it also happens to be what I had in my glass the first time I met my Mr. Simply Homemade, so worthy of a mention!!
So there you have it, 10 of my favourites, what do you think? Do love/hate any of these food or drinks?
