I'm not a foodie by any sense of the word. Food preparation is trying for me. I know how to cook. My grandmother and my mother taught both my sister and me. But, cooking is a lot of work. You have to plan it, buy it, prepare it, cook it, serve it, eat it, then clean it all up. It's exhausting. Then, you have to do it all over again the next day. Every now and then I get inspired to try something new, but I usually stick to my no brainers.
The saddest part of growing older is that your metabolism is not as cooperative as it used to be. The foods you loved as a kid will now cause you to gain 10 pounds just by thinking of them. My husband and I are trying to eat right and squeeze in some exercise into our schedules. Some foods we used to love and enjoy come by sporadically nowadays.
Here are some foods I've tried once and I'd be happy never to try again:
3. Ginger Tea
5. Dark chocolate
6. Blue Cheese
Foods I've tried once and I was instantly hooked:
1. Blue Chips
2. White Chocolate Mocha Latte
3. Harry & David's Pepper Relish
4. All things milk chocolate
5. Anything with sweet potato
A food item I'd like to try, but haven't had the opportunity:
A food I have no desire to try, ever:
This summer I found this recipe for Blueberry Lemon Bars while surfing Pinterest. And, I decided to try it. I loved it. I think it goes great with hot tea. If you'd like to try it, here's the recipe I used.
Thank you for stopping by. Have a lovely weekend.
