So I eat some weird stuff…

As I was spreading some liverwurst onto some wholegrain crackers as a belated breakfast this morning I thought to myself “so I really do eat some weird stuff”. I have always been a bit of an odd eater. As a child, and as an adult too, I don’t find myself bouncing up and down excitedly to eat all those typical breakfast foods, or any food really before 9am. Eggs: meh, verging on gross. Cereal: maybe, but I’m not really a fan of the whole milk thing. Toast: In this house we don’t even own a toaster, so you can probably see how much we eat toast.

When I was younger I have some odd food memories, such as eating liverwurst on slices of apple. Yes this memory is why I decided to buy some recently. I also remember being scolded for eating crushed pineapple for breakfast by school teachers. There was also this thing with those Country Cheese biscuits which involved regurgitation that shouldn’t be mentioned ever again.

These days I suppose I eat more ‘normally’, with a few odd things thrown in here and there. Say, drinking the Chinese vinegar soy after the dumplings are gone. Ahem.

But let’s talk about all the great foods that are out there. Here’s what I’ve been loving lately from my beloved Pinterest:

  • Green Bean Avocado Fried Rice. This was yummy and oh so filling the other night.
  • Shaved Asparagus and Whipped Ricotta Pizza. I made this last night for Matty and his parents and we all loved it! It even got Matty and I to try asparagus.
  • Easy Lemon Curd. I made this lemon curd to fancy up (and to replace some very sad berries) on a pavlova for Easter.
  • Cheesy Leftover Mashed Potato Pancakes. We’ve made this recipe a few times now and I’m putting it on the list for this weeks meals.
  • One Pot Pasta. I accidentally left the leftovers of this on the bench all night and almost cried on my way home from work the next morning when I realised.
  • Vegetable Bake. This recipe is GOOD. Who knew that grating and combining a bunch of veggies (and adding cheese and bacon) would be so tasty.
  • Roasted Rosemary Almonds. Matty requests that I made these probably once every few months. They’re great for a so-hungry-i’m-going-to-die-whilst-i’m-cooking-dinner-snack.
  • Roasted Beet Hummus. This was the recipe that started my ‘I’m going to make all the hummus’ feeling.

So tell me about your weird food loves, or even hates. I wanna know!
