Foodie Alphabet!

So I'm still in a funk after being told off for my tardiness this morning and all I have on my agenda today is filing.. so I'm going to fill in another meme to try and lift my mood before I tackle X's overflowing filing tray... *sigh* nothing cheers me up like food!! 

A: is for Apple, what’s your favorite variety? Granny Smith... crunchy and sharp! yummo!! If green apples aren't available, then Braeburns.. they are almost always crunchy and that is VERY important! mushy apples are yuck!

B: is for Bread, regardless of nutrition, calories, or whole grains what is your favorite type to have a nice big piece of? Brown bread with seeds and nuts.. nom nom nom.. or focacia... dipped in olive oil and balsamic.. or dukkah... nom nom nom... 

C: is for Cereal what is your favorite kind currently (just one!) muesli! muesli from real foods.. om nom nom nom... 

D: is for Doughnuts, you might not currently be eating them but what kind do you fancy? boston creme from tim hortons... but I'm not really picky.. I love doughnuts.. ooh oooh.. or those mini ones from the street stalls.. drowning in cinnamon sugar... mmmmmmmmini doughnuts.. 

E: is for Eggs, how would you like yours prepared? any way! I love eggs.. 

F: is for Fat Free, what is your favorite fat free product? yoghurt.. it's about the only fat free thing I do because fat free usually involves sweetners and I think it's far worse to eat things that are chemically manufactured rather than just eat sugar which is a natural product! 

G: is for Groceries, where do you purchase yours at? mostly Tesco... sometimes Sainsbury's.. bits and pieces from real foods... I wish we had a proper green grocer or butcher nearby.. 

H: is for Hot Beverages, what is your favorite hot drink? flat white if there's an espresso machine involved.. otherwise I'm not overly picky.. depends on my mood... I go between coffee and tea.. or Turkish Apple Tea.. sometimes hot chocolate.. 

I: is for Ice Cream, pick a favorite flavor and add a fun topping. hokey pokey! or stracciatella.. with crushed almonds on top.. or chocolate sauce.. 
J: is for Jams or Jellies, do you eat them, and if so what kind and flavor? Berries.. anything berry flavour.. strawberry, raspberry, blackberry, boysenberry... ooh.. and grape!! I don't like marmalade tho.. ick! I agree with Mrs Biscuit that the Bonne Maman jams are pretty yummy!

K: is for Kashi, name your favorite Kashi product? I think the only Kashi product I've eaten is the Strawberry Fields cereal.. we don't get Kashi here.. so I say K is for Kellog's.. and my fave Kellog's product is probably Crunchy Nut.. I eat it outta the box like chips.. haha.. or pop tarts, tho they are so sweet they make my teeth hurt... but they are a fun treat.. 

L: is for Lunch, what was yours today? leftover sausage and spinach pasta bake from dins last night.. 

M: is for microwave, what is your favorite microwave meal/snack? popcorn.. that's about the only thing I cook in the microwave.. otherwise microwave lasagne is good too.. 

N: is for nutrients, do you likes carbs, fats, or proteins best? what does fruit and veges count as?? probably carbs? I love chips.. I've gone weeks without meat and dairy but chips are absolutely my weakness.. 

O: is for oil, what kind do you like to use? EVOO.. just OO..  

P: is for protein, how do you get yours? Steak, bacon.. pork chops.. lamb.. chicken.. I have no qualms with eating animals.. whale, zebra, kangaroo, ostrich, alligator, rabbit, boar, caribou, deer, reindeer.. I've eaten them all..  

Q: is for Quaker, how do you like your oats? baked in muffins!! 

R: is for roasting, what is your favorite thing to roast? sweet potato/kumara or pumpkin... 

S: is for sandwich, what’s your favorite kind? depends on my mood.. but anything that contains bacon usually wins my vote! 

T: is for travel, how do you handle eating while traveling? junk food!! road trips are for junk food!! otherwise I like to eat local when I'm travelling.. I'm game to try just about anything.. (bugs and insects.. not so much).. I ate iguana once when I lived in Honduras.. 

U: is for unique, what is one of your weirdest food combos? erm... nothing?? banana and peanut butter? or apple and peanut butter?? I thought it was weird when I saw my roomy Ash do it.. but I've seen other people eat it since.. so it can't be that weird! 

V: is for vitamins, what kind do you take? I take cod liver oil and some vitamin C.. when I remember.. when I'm feeling a bit down or can't sleep well, I take St John's Wort.. but that's about it.. 

W: is for wasabi, yay or nay? Yum! but only on sushi and sashimi.. or wasabi peas! nom nom nom... 

X: is for Xmas time treats, what is your favorite type? umm.. I don't think I have one.. candy canes? :D 

Y: is for youth, what food reminds you of your childhood? My mum or granny's cooking.. I ate loads of stuff as a kid.. maybe plum discs.. or Morinaga caramels.. or Chelsea Candy.. and Koala cookies!!  

Z: is for zucchini, how do you prepare it? Zucchini/Courgettes aren't something that I'd buy... I'll eat em if they show up on my plate.. but a couple of weeks ago was the first time I've bought them for myself.. I just sliced them up and put them in George (the mister's George Foreman grill).. they were yum!

Thanks Mrs Biscuit for posting~

nb: I am happy to report that I am feeling quite a bit better after consuming a bacon & egg roll... and a wander around the charity shops at lunch time!! :) 


  1. I agree with almost everything you wrote! I love me some good jam, cinnamon sugar doughnuts and I could seriously live off chips! YUM!

    I used to shop at Sainsbury's and Tesco in London! I also LOVED Waitrose, they have the most amazing prepared foods-- pop it in the oven and pretend you made it good! Haha!

    I'm glad you're feeling a bit better =)


  2. Oh and I have to say, I'm seriously impressed by all the different types of animals you've eaten! I'll have to tell Mr. Muffin, he'll be jealous! Haha!!

  3. We don't have a Waitrose close by, otherwise I'd go there, they have Heston as their spokesperson and we all know I love me some Heston!! ; )
    Did you know they belong to John Lewis?? I sometimes go to M&S for their prepared food.. yummy on lazy days!!

    Hehe.. me, you & mr muffin should totally go on a foodie tour!! YUMMO!!
