10 things I…. love to eat…

10 thingsThis is the start of an occasional series. 10 things with some common link. This time it’s my favourite foods, next time maybe my least favourite foods, movies I can watch repeatedly. It’s really quite open-ended.

So here goes, 10 things I love to eat:

  1. Chocolate! It almost goes without saying. I love most types of chocolate, though I’m less keen on dark chocolate. I’ve recently discovered Lindt Lindor Strawberry and Cream – they are gorgeous!
  2. Smoked salmon. Simply….yum! I’ve only once found a type of smoked salmon which I’ve not liked, it was smoked with juniper berries and had a taste I didn’t enjoy. I’ll eat it in so many ways, tarts, pasta, rice, toast, bread… in fact with almost anything!
  3. Cake! Especially chocolate or coffee cakes…. but not coffee cakes with walnuts, that’s just wrong!
  4. Cheese. I could sit and munch my way through rather a lot of cheese with a nice pile of biscuits or breadsticks. It has to be a nice hard cheese though, I don’t like things along the brie/stilton line, or goat’s cheese for that matter.
  5. Strawberries…mmmmm! Especially dipped in balsamic vinegar with a little bit of sugar
  6. Prawn cocktail Seabrook, my favourite crisps, very closely followed by sea salt and balsamic vinegar Kettle chips.
  7. M&S Caramel mini bites – basically marshmallow crispy cakes with chocolate 🙂 What’s not to like?
  8. McDonald’s Filet of fish. My guilty pleasure, I do like a McDonald’s, sadly the husband doesn’t so I don’t have one very often but they are very nice when I do!
  9. Mushrooms in any shape or form. ‘Slimy shrooms’, as my sister calls them, used to be among my most hated foods but when I hit my late teens I suddenly found I like them…a lot!
  10. Mayonnaise, especially Hellman’s. I eat a lot less of this than I used to (that may surprise some who have eaten with me recently!), but I could still happily eat this with almost anything savoury… yes, including a roast dinner!

It’s your turn now… what’s your favourite food?
