Way back in April of 2016, I posted a list of my 10 favourite foods; see here......
Having looked at it again, I realise that I need to expand, and add another 10.
1. Lamb chops (cooked outdoors on BBQ)
2. Licorice wheels (spirals)
3. Hummus (homemade)
7. Lemon (in all forms)
10 Mature Cheddar cheese.
There could well be another 10 yet to come; watch this space.
The link told me it no longer existed !!ReplyDelete
I love most of those - the whelks and squid I could take or leave. I prefer oysters, mussels, crab, crayfish.
Those might appear amongst the next 10.Delete
p.s. I just tried the link, it came up OK.Delete
Now I'm craving for a mango! I've tasted Marmite and I liked it. I was told that eating Marmite on toast helps with nausea. Bananas for me too, I love them and my saviors; only food I could keep down during treatment.ReplyDelete
Greetings Maria x
Wonderful things bananas. Perfectly wrapped, just the right size, and they taste superb.Delete
Those lamb chops look so good! Licorice is on my top ten too.ReplyDelete
Lamb chops are so expensive here (as I'm sure you know). I can only afford to eat them on very special occasions.Delete
I love those Haribo Licorice wheels.
An easy recipe for lamb chops that a Sardinian taught me:ReplyDelete
Lay out the chops on wax paper lined oven tray.
Sprinkle about two tablespoons of coarse salt on the chops.
Bake in hot oven for about 40 minutes (depending on the size of the chops)
Crisp and juicy. Easy peasy and always successful.
That certainly does sound good. Frankly I like them all ways; my favourite being BBQ'd very quickly on a hot fire, so that they remain very pink inside.Delete
I am surprised lamb chops were left out of your first list. I agree that they are even better on the BBQ. I suppose they are expensive because France protects its own farmers whereas here we have imports from New Zealand.ReplyDelete
An oversight, obviously. It's a shame they're so expensive, I'd eat them regularly otherwise.Delete
I haven't eaten squid since I heard that the males have sharp, barbed-sperm which can survive deep-frying and shoot into your throat causing inflammation, choking and swelling. Sorry if I put you off...ReplyDelete
You haven't put me off. I've been eating Squid for a very long time, and still have no signs of Squid-sperm related problems.Delete
THE HOW DO YOU EXPLAIN THE CHILDREN BORN IN YOUR GULLET????Delete
What are whelks? -JennReplyDelete
Sea snails. A bit of an acquired taste!!Delete
Oh.... I might go so far as to say you would never have to feel compelled to share with me. Each to their own.Delete
I haven’t had lamb in almost 50 years. One dinner of imported mutton made a lasting impression on me.ReplyDelete
I like lemons and bananas and any kind of cheddar cheese.
I used to know a Dutchman who wouldn't even eat in a restaurant where Lamb was on the menu. The slightest whiff of it made him feel ill.Delete
I love escargot: are they the same as whelks? I'm sure I'd like them anyway as I'm a huge seafood lover. Marmite -- well, I do believe you have to be raised with that one, huh!ReplyDelete
Whelks are quite chewy, and are usually eaten, at the seaside, dipped in vinegar. Escargots are more refined eating; I eat mine cooked in butter and garlic.Delete
Love everything on your list ...... chickpeas are in short supply so will be more expensive and buying or making hummus will cost more !!!ReplyDelete
I love squid but Tom has now put me off a bit ..... notice I said ‘a bit’ and not completely !!!! XXXX
Yes, I read that about Chick Peas; thank goodness I have plenty in stock.Delete
Take no notice of Tom; Squid are perfectly SAFE!
I like most everything on your list and lamb on the barbecue is always good. I would add cashews and walnuts instead of Whelks.ReplyDelete
Whelks are not everyone's 'cup of tea'; Lady Magnon won't touch them. Crazy!Delete
Liquorice would be near the top of my list. I've learned to like salted liquorice too. IKEA has the only liquorice, salted, that I have ever seen here. And no, ouzo is not a substituteReplyDelete
Now that sounds interestingDelete
I was recently given quite a large pack of Dutch salted Licorice; I'm afraid it's not to my taste at all. I prefer the ordinary sweet-ish variety.Delete
I like all on you list but Whelks, I do not know what they are. Love Liquorice spirals and salted one also !ReplyDelete
I have to watch how much I eat is affects your blood pressure
I'm supposed to watch my diet too, but all in moderation!Delete
Well, Cro, you've just earned a Geeb Brownie Point: you like Marmite.ReplyDelete
Experimenting with ten favourite foods, and I find it is cheese that predominates no wonder I put on weight!!ReplyDelete
coq au vin
fondue (with a decent gruyere)
Sole and halibut if I could ever find it..
Strawberries and cream
Can't understand anyone liking liquorice it sticks to your teeth.
