In no particular order, here are 10 things I really enjoy eating:
* Pizza. Love the stuff, although I don't go in for the really overly cheesy ones. I just get the Savers ones from Morrisons for 99p each and trim them up with lots of extra toppings and flavourings - shake of salt, dried herbs, fresh garlic, some veg, olives and chopped jalapeños.
* Spaghetti napolitana. Again, I make my own by frying a medium onion and two medium cloves of garlic in a little rapeseed oil. Stir in a tin of (chopped) tomatoes and a veg stock cube (I use Kallo Organic veg cubes) and simmer on a low heat. By the time the spaghetti (wholemeal, of course!;)) has cooked, the sauce will be ready to just stir some torn fresh basil into.
* Vegetable rogan josh. I love tomatoes, so a tomato based curry appeals to me, whether I have to make it myself with a small cheat of curry paste, or we order in.
* I love fruit, especially mangoes, papaya, strawberries, blood oranges and tasty pears.
* Yes, I like some unhealthy stuff too and am fond of chocolate (and a bit of chocolate ice cream), and I love crisps. However, as sugar attacks the immune system and a whole host of other negative effects, I keep it to a minimum. I've also recently gone cold turkey on crisps (potato chips) as they are so salty and I was beginning to notice signs of dehydration around my eyes. As I pride myself on looking younger than many of my 15 or so years younger friends, I was in no hurry to encourage eye skin nasties. Within a couple of weeks I could see an improvement. =)
So, that makes about 10 foods in all. And, yes, this is a day late. I simply ran out of time yesterday as it was one busy day! So, in order to catch up, here is today's topic:
I don't think I had one favourite book as a child. I loved Enid Blyton stories, and still do. I especially loved the 'Famous Five', 'Malory Towers', 'St Clares' and 'The Naughtiest Girl' series. I still have many of them and/or borrow them from the local library. Great to relax with.
I had two or three 'Chalet School' books when I was a kid too, but I never read them then. I started reading those about 10 years ago and, with the highly valued help of Glenis, who owns a complete set of the hardback Chalet books, I've now read the lot. Good old escapism. =)
