7 Food Facts

The lovely Miss Margot from Coffee & Vanilla had tagged me a while ago to answer 7 Food Facts about myself. Due to the plague in my house I had totally forgotten about it. Sorry Margot. So here it is finally. I would like to tag in turn a couple of my favourite bloggers Uncaring Bear, Little Miss Moi and finally Duncan from Syrup & Tang.

  1. I am a totally messy cook. Without my Dave I would be stuffed. Example above of my true messy style. Also my kitchen is to small. I need a bigger one so I can make even more mess.
  2. I hate, hate, just hate, any bread over a day old. If it hasn't been baked that day, it's only use to me is either toast or homemade bread crumbs. Coming from a very poor family, I came to appreciate very fresh bread when we had it. I am scarred for life!
  3. Offal, can't eat it, won't touch it, I run in the other direction, it just gives me the willys and turns my stomach.
  4. I have turned my children into food snobs. Simply the best is only good enough for them. They are truly food critics and make life impossible for anyone who cooks for them. What have I done? I didn't do it on purpose. Ben is constantly giving me advice on what I should have done and how I can do it better next time. Cheeky monkey!
  5. I am allergic to Broccoli and Cauliflower, well not really, that's just what I tell everyone because I detest them.
  6. I love expensive fancy ingredients. Some women have shoes, some women love clothes, I have my oils and weird ingredients. Does anyone know where I might be able to buy a Truffle in Townsville? I am just hanging to buy one.
  7. Lastly, Food is what gives a home a heart, it brings people together, it makes you feel content, it creates fabulous childhood memories or nightmares, it creates comfort and a house that revolves around a kitchen is just satisfying. Food and Family are my life, and my world. I show my family how much I love them by producing meals that everyone enjoys and everyone talks about. I feel like I am giving them my heart and soul when I cook. It is a gift that will keep on giving for the rest of my life.

Glad to see that you and your family are over the "plague". I loved your comments on your meme especially about food and family. I detest cauliflower which smells like dirty socks when cooking...and brocolli ....well..lets just say I am learning to tolerate it chopped very tiny and mixed with other ingredients...learning to tolerate mushrooms in my old age as well!!

I just ate a lamb roast and had it with broccoli and cauliflower with heaps of cheese sauce. (And beans, french cut the way grandma taught me, and baked potato, sweet potato, carrot and zucchini). It was all fabulous. Even the trees and clouds. I even knocked on my neighbour's door and asked if I can have some of the rosemary growing in their front yard for my roast, and got myself an open invitation to help myself any time. Which is good because I have helped myself before, usually late at night when I know I'll be doing a lamb roast the next day.

Glad you're feeling better. I will get to this some time this week. I don't generally meme BUT I do love to cook so will enjoy this one :)

Hi Amelia

I certainly do not think you sounded stupido on my Blog!

I love your philosophy for number 7. That is how I lead my life. It is a something I rarely see in people, that true passion for food that makes people like you and me a bit weird to the non-foodies.

Keep it up, looking forward to the recipes now that illness has gone.

Ha, you've got more space than me and you look a bit neater, at least all those neatly lined up jars give that impression.

Interesting food facts :)
I think you are the only one from the people I tagged that posted those facts, thank you!
Have a wonderful day.. Margot

I've just realised that I've been doing something incredibly annoying - calling you Amelia! Apologie Amelita, I've always been poor with names......

Valli, thank you very much for your compliments. I love mushrooms, I hope you grow to love them to :)

The Other Bear, you are very cheeky Miss, tormenting me with a lovely lamb roast then destroying it with Broccoli and Cauliflower. Very Naughty young lady :)

David, I hope you enjoy some of my new recipes, and it's ok, I am used to everyone getting my name wrong. I don't worry about it.

Neil, neat little jars and all that lovely mess, it's a nice illusion. I agree.

Coffee & Vanilla, bit of a bummer that no one else answered your tag. I enjoyed doing it. They are lots of fun and make for a change to my blog. Thank you for getting me to do it :)
