3/20 December Blog Challenge: Favourite and Least Favourite Foods.

Screen Shot 2014-12-06 at 8.11.51 AM

Ah, a topic that will probably make me hungry just writing it.  I really love eating. Most food is so delicious, sometimes I wish that I could just keep tasting good food, without actually having to eat it – feel extremely full and possibly gaining weight. But then again… Texture and consistency is really important too… The flavour can be great.. but if something isnt the right texture in your mouth… the yummiest thing can be totally gross.

Today I am sharing a list of a few of my most favourite and least favourite things to eat.

I will start with my dislikes… Many people will tell you that I am a very very picky eater. And yeah, OK! Ill give you that to a point. I am picky, I don’t like a lot of the things that I try…. That’s right – I TRY. Most picky eaters I know, eat only their certain things and wont try anything else. I will try everything at least once. I probably won’t like it – but if I don’t give it a try, how do I know that I am not missing out on my next favourite food?!

Dislikes:

  • Mustard – It is just gross!
  • Fish – I used to really like fish… I don’t know what happened, but now I just cant stand it 😦
  • Peppers – It’s both the texture and flavour on this one.
  • Weird Cheeses – They creep me out, especially blue cheese. This one I haven’t tried… i just can’t eat mold I can see.
  • Mushrooms – besides the fact that its fungus… the texture is so not welcoming in my mouth.
  • Kale and Spinach – I will eat these, sometimes you just have to. I don’t like the flavour/texture… but if you sop enough dressing and stuff on them, they are easily consumed.

My most favorite foods…. Sometimes I think about if I could only eat one meal forever – what would it be… or my last meal? It would have to be bird and potatoes…. And I am fairly convinced that will include – but not limited to: Turkey dinners, chicken and mashed potatoes, turkey bacon and hash browns… and my favourite: Chicken nuggets and french fries. Besides my unrelenting love for bird and spuds here are a few more…

Favourites:

  • Junk Food – pop, chips, candy… ice cream!
  • Rice – This is a food that I spent the first 18 years of my life hating. Then one day I tried some fried rice and loved it… and then a while after that I tried white rice with soya-sauce… and now I love it even if its just plain.
  • Mexican- Tacos, Enchiladas ,Quesadilla.. tostitos – nomnomnom!!
  • Spaghetti – Baked with cheese… my fav is eating it the next day on toast!
  • Sheppard’s Pie – I haven’t had this for a long time… I love it with a piece of buttered bread!
  • potato bacon chowder or tomato soup with lots of pepper and crackers – NOMNOMNOM!
  • Bacon – This is meat candy!

Oh my! I need to stop, my mind is now racing thinking about all of these foods ( and I just noticed that nothing on there is really healthy… meh) and how tasty they would be in my mouth. There are more things that I really like and possibly really dislike, I should have started thinking about them days ago instead of sitting down at 730 am and expecting my tired brain to think of things. Oh well, there is only so much anyone else actually cares about knowing what I do and do not like to eat…. And maybe this has made you hungry too?

Paleo Ribs

Who doesn’t enjoy a good rack of ribs? exactly. I LOVE ribs, slathered in BBQ sauce, falling apart in my mouth… Mmm.
I spent a while online today trying to find a Paleo BBQ sauce that both looked delicious and I actually had the ingredients to make. No success. But that doesn’t mean that I cant have juicy delicious ribs.
Really its easy peasy, I have lots of spices in my cupboard. Lets make a dry rub!

So, to make my ribs just follow these steps.
1. preheat the oven to 250
2. in a bowl, combine the following spices:

  • 1/2 Tbsp. sea salt
  • 1Tbsp. Chili powder
  • 1 Tbsp. paprika
  • 1 Tbsp. garlic powder
  • 1 Tbsp. onion powder
  • 1 Tbsp. Chipotle powder
  • 2 tsp. ground black pepper

3. Rubs the stuff all over the runs.. toss in the oven… wait about 2 and 3/4 hours and voila YUM!

Lemon Pepper Chicken Wings

I wanted wings a few days ago, but with life being busy I didn’t have time until today to make them. When i went online to find a recipe, I just couldn’t find one that suited me.  so i did the only logical thing…

I made it up as i went along.

 

I don’t have exact measurements, only estimations because i didn’t measure anything in the making of these wings.

Heat oven to 400

Place chicken wings on a wire rack over top a baking sheet to catch the drippings.

place in oven and cook for 15 minutes, turn and cook another ten minutes.

In the meantime, in a bowl mix the following – pepper, half a lemons worth of juice, some lemon zest just for kicks, and a few tablespoons of melted butter( or your alternative if you aren’t lacto paleo). Mix it all up!

brush it all over your mostly cooked wings and cook for another 5 minutes, turn and brush on the mixture to the other side of the wings and let cook for a few more minutes.

Your wings should be done!

 

Now if you read my other post, you would know that I feel pretty crappy today, so i only had a few of the wings. They were good. Darcy however ate most of them, and he just kept going on and on about how juicy and tasty they are. He kept asking me if I could make them again exactly the same. So I think i did a good job on these.  WooHoo!

So here is a picture of the wings, I didn’t take more, but really, who wants to look at pictures of raw chicken… the finished product is where its at!

The best potato wedge fries! Nomnomnom

I don’t know if its because I was really really hungry, or if its because I am just amazing… But I just made the best fries/potato wedges in the world.

I am a little disappointed that I didn’t take pictures during the preparation. I was just too hungry and focused on getting them in the oven and cooked!

They are so easy to make.

Preheat the oven to 425

I used two potatoes. Washed them and left the skin on.

I cut them into wedges, not too thick.

Tossed them in olive oil.

I then placed them all on a foil lined baking sheet.

I then sprinkled garlic powder, paprika and salt on them.

I then baked them for 25 minutes, then flipped them and cooked them another 7 minutes.

I wish I would have made more…. Or that I wouldn’t have shared with Darcy. They were so good. Especially with my home made ketchup.

Nomnomnom!
