Happy Tuesday!! This week’s Top Ten Tuesday topic is about food, but I’ve decided to stray slightly from the bookish path. The last time there was a food-related theme I shared 10 foodie facts about me, which was a lot of fun… so I’m going to do the same thing again!
1. If I had to eat one food for the rest of my life, it would probably be pizza.
I love pizza. For years we’ve had what we call Pizza Friday at my house back home in which my mom makes/buys pizza every Friday and it’s the greatest tradition ever. I definitely miss it now that I’m abroad!
2. I love picking berries.
Every summer I pick strawberries and blueberries at a local farm and it’s so much fun. (The resulting strawberry rhubarb and blueberry pies aren’t bad either!)
3. My favorite ice cream flavor is cookie dough.
If you’ve never made homemade cookie dough ice cream with actual pieces of cookie dough in it, then you have not lived. It’s amazing.
4. Cinnamon makes everything better.
My laziness in the kitchen coupled with limited supplies and ingredients means that I tend to look for the quickest, easiest way to make simple things taste better. My solution? Cinnamon! (Especially in porridge!)
5. I’m loyal to one specific burrito place.
Back home there’s a restaurant called Las Olas that makes amazing burritos– so amazing that I have yet to taste ones elsewhere that are better! I miss Las Olas dearly.
6. I’ve never eaten sushi.
I’ve been told many times by various people that this is strange, but there you have it. I’m sure I would like rolls with just veggies; however, the idea of eating raw fish is pretty unappetizing.
7. I often crave lemonade.
For some reason whenever I’m tired or really thirsty all I want is a big glass of lemonade. There’s just something so satisfying about it!
8. Whoppers are one of my favorite kinds of candy.
You have no idea how much shade I have received for genuinely enjoying Whoppers. Apparently they’re not very popular, but I appreciate them for being a) chocolate and b) nut free. Kudos to you, Whoppers!
9. Raisins in porridge is my new favorite breakfast.
I love oatmeal (or porridge, as they call it in England) because it’s quick and easy to make yet it still fills you up. Recently I discovered that the grocery store closest to my dorm sells bags of raisins for baking, which are delicious in a hot bowl of oats in the morning. It’s not as good as the granola I eat at home, but it’s a close second!
10. Toast is an underrated food.
Toast is good for any and all occasions: breakfast, part of a meal, as a midnight snack… the possibilities are endless!
