I love food. Sometimes I love it a bit too much but there are some things that just make me weak in the knees. I love trying new things and varieties but there are always those old favourites that you just can’t get enough of. Food is as much about the emotions attached to it as the taste, which is probably why so many out there (including myself, once upon a time) struggle with it.
Going with the good old “trapped on a desert island” theme, these are the foods I absolutely can’t live with out:
1. Sushi: I didn’t start eating sushi until just a few years ago and oh, if only I could go back in time!! I don’t go exotic or anything and keep my rolls very basic but I just love it. And for comic relief, all you have to do is watch me try to eat it with chop sticks.
2. Gelati: The only thing better than heading over to Little Italy and having some amazing gelati there was getting to experience it right from the source: Italy!! Hubby and I honeymooned in Europe for 2.5 weeks and spent a few days in Rome and Florence where one of the highlights was that sweet local treat.
3. Pizza: Again, something that was even better in Europe but is always an old favourite for me. I remember growing up having pizza nights at home and getting to walk down the street to this tiny little pizzeria on the corner and getting the most amazing pizza. I’m not apt to make homemade pizza now but we do occasionally order in as a special treat and the Little Man loves it just as much as his mama!
4. My mum’s peanut butter square: I have no idea what the exact ingredient list is and it’s probably better that way because anything that is that sinfully delicious is probably not in the least bit good for you. For the record, I could easily eat the entire pan. This stuff is just. that. amazing.
5. Cashew Butter: I don’t know what it is about this stuff but it’s so creamy and rich, a little goes a long way.
For those that may doubt, I don’t eat these things every day, or even all that often but when I do, I savor every single bite!
What are some of your guilty (or not-so-guilty) pleasures? Are they about the food or the memories attached to them.
