10 Day You Challenge: Day 6 - Five Foods

Day 6: Five Foods (I Eat Far Too Often Because I Love Them Too Much)

1. Cheese: I've mentioned my love for cheese at numerous points on this blog. If I'm looking for an easy dinner with maximum impact, I'll pull out six to ten cheeses with a variety of preserves and spreads and crackers. Camembert with preserved figs or brie with onion marmelade? I'm in heaven.

2. Fajitas: In the past year or so, I've really developed my taste for spicy food (something which I get from my dad). I will add a touch of chili to just about anything. So mexican-style food is just up my alley. My favourite thing to make is chicken fajitas (I follow a Jamie Oliver recipe that I've altered a fair bit to my idea of perfection). The best thing: a full home-cooked meal, including my own salsa, from fridge to plate in under 20 minutes. Perfect for when you get home after a long day at work.

3. Pizza: Not so much the takeout, greasy pizza that automatically springs to mind (although that definitely has it's time and place). My favourite pizza that I find myself lusting over is a super thin base, decked with figs, bacon and brie and topped with a good handful of fresh rocket. (This one was from De Oude Bank Bakkerij in Stellenbosch and was super yummy!)

4. Summer fruit: I literally can't wait for spring to come so that I can eat berries all the time (at the moment I'm forking out far too much money on strawberries and imported blueberries). Add melons, pineapple, peaches, grapes and the rest and I'm a happy LJ. I have a theory that it's impossible to be sad when eating summer fruit. And if you are, it's because you're not dipping them in molten #5...

5. Chocolate: I eat enough of this for it to count as a proper food. And no, I'm not a snob for the super bitter >70% stuff. Dark chocolate has it's place, but I melt for milky, creamy chocolate. Bring me the red Lindt Lindor chocolate balls and I will do anything you ask of me. Even things I can't publish on this blog. Seriously. It's my kryptonite. Or a chocolate fondue that I can dip strawberries in... *swoons*
