Sometimes I need a filter between my brain and my mouth.
This is not the way to get one.

My Top Ten: Food

Oh Emily - you couldn't have picked a better topic if you tried - you just know my weak spot, don't you??

So, this week we're looking at food. Are you sure I can only choose 10??

1. Pasta with a homemade sauce of cream, bacon, mushrooms, capsicum, garlic, salt and pepper. If you're feeling really spesh - add a spash of a nice white wine...

2. Lamb know, it's a wrap with lamb and lettuce, tomato, tabouli, garlic sauce etc on it. The Guru calls it something else...when I say kebab he thinks of meat on a stick.

3. Vanilla Cheesecake. I LOVE a good cheesecake...I could eat one all on my own if I tried hard enough - I'm sure of it.

4. Fajitas - the Guru makes a bloody AWESOME batch of fajitas...he makes up the marinade the night before and let's the meat 'soak' overnight in the fridge with the veggies. I don't know what he does but it's just magic.

5. Homemade pizzas. So yummy and I can have what I like on a pizza without having to worry about whinging :-) Better for you, too, I guess...

6. Eggs Benedict - If we go out somewhere for breakfast this is what I have - sometimes with salmon and other times just with some ham. It's my indulgence - the sauce has enough calories for me not to eat for the rest of the month, but I just don't care.

7. Chip Butty - this is an English tradition passed down to me from my Mum and my Nanna (and celebrated by English people everywhere). There's nothing like a soft bread roll, a light licking of butter and some hot chips piled on for a tasty treat. I've created my Modern Chip Butty which is a Chia bread roll, Philadelphia cream cheese and a smattering of Red Rock Deli Honey Soy Chicken chips. Mmmmmmm....

8. Garlic prawns with Jasmine or Basmati rice.

9. Homemade sausage rolls. I make mine with good quality lamb mince, sun-dried tomatoes (diced finely), feta cheese (diced finley or just crumbled), chives (diced finely) and/or spanish onion, salt and pepper to taste. Wrap in puff pastry and bake in the oven. Serve warm. Yum, yum, yum!

10. Watermelon. The Toddler, the Guru and I sit outside on the grass with half a watermelon, 3 spoons and we dig in. It's how we bond over yummy food...

So there you have it - the top ten foods I could think of at the moment. There are many, many more that I love and I could go on for days but this will do for now :-)

  6. YUM!!! I'm making truffle oil mac n' cheese today. I'll be posting about it of course! My pregnancy cravings are out of control!! Posted another giveaway today that I'm guessing you'd like. It's open worldwide too:)
