Ten Favorite Foods

I am a self-proclaimed foodie.  Food brings people together, holds tradition and memories and is a life-sustaining need.  So for today these are 10 of my all-time favorite foods. I have included, obvious from the picture, all food not just ‘what’s for dinner’.  Although, I will admit I have eaten a cookie or two for breakfast, lunch or dinner on occasion. And you have too!

Minestrone Soup –  This makes my list because not only is it tasty, but I love the process of making it.  All of those fresh ingredients herbs and veggies that need to be chopped and diced it is therapeutic for me to make and healthy to eat!

Bread – Pretty much bread of any kind but I particularly love crusty baguettes, focaccia, or a good hearty wholewheat sandwich bread.  I know this is definitely not a weight watchers favorite.  But I am a carb lover!

Spaghetti and marinara – Carbs aplenty here too!  I love pasta of any sort actually, but really enjoy a good chunky veggie sauce with the longest spaghetti noodle possible, and a good dosing of fresh Parmesan cheese.

New York Strip – For the meat lover in me, there is nothing as tasty  as the perfectly done tenderly prepared steak.  I will take that medium well please, with a sour cream topped baked potato!

Cheese pizza –  Whether it is the very thinnest of crispy crusts or a thick pan style pizza, I love it all.  This would be a perfect meal paired with a tasty garden salad and a rich, dark micro-brew beer!

Spinach salad – Fresh baby spinach along with fresh sliced strawberries, just screams springtime!  I also like a bit of blue cheese and some toasted pecans.  If you top it with a nice lite vinaigrette it’s so yummy!

Coconut Shrimp – This is one food I confess that I haven’t actually prpared on the list, but I have ordered it out many times.  Jumbo shrimp crusted with delicious coconut flakes, dipped in some pineapple dipping sauce, what’s not to love? Tropical and so delish!

Frosted sugar cookies – The picture here are my own cookies I made for Valentine’s Day. These have an extra bit of vanilla in the cookie and  almond flavored icing. To me, the flavors together are the the perfect dessert after any meal.

Bread pudding – Here is another high-carb addition, this time a dessert.  I do not have it often but think that it is wonderful. A real comfort food.  I make mine with raisins and a warm whiskey sauce to top it off!

Brownie – Really? Yes, probably the best all-around, perfect last bite, or possibly even the first bit sometimes.  I love the thick cut, extremely chewy, pecan laden variety!

What are some of your favorite foods?  I would love to hear from you!

    Those cookies are gorgeous. Kudos!

    Because of my pain condition, I’m often reduced to a high-carb diet, so I hear you on the bread, pizza, and pasta. Of course, I had a doctor tell me that it made me look “a little doughy.” Ouch!

    This wasn’t the best post to read just before breakfast, especially since all I have is peanut butter sandwich! Great list-I loved everything except the sea food-I’m not a big fan. And Minestrone-no idea what that is.
