Dog Days 10th August

Today Fandango’s  theme is “your favorite food.”
Is it an appetizer? An entree? A dessert? A snack? What is your favorite thing to eat? Or maybe it’s food for thought, for the soul, for the mind? Share a story, a poem, a photo, a drawing, some music, or whatever you wish to share about your favorite food.

I love food, and am always trying to find ways of having the things I like without breaking the calorie bank.
Since Covid-19 hit, it’s been hard going trying to find the enthusiasm to eat sensibly and stick to a healthy diet, and the little treats have become bigger and more often.
Best way is not to buy the stuff in the first place but then the cravings start, and that makes it worse than ever.
My favourite meal in a restaurant for years was a prawn cocktail starter, followed by a rump steak (well done/cremated as the chef seems to get it just right for me if I say that), and for dessert, black forest gateau.
My, how my tastes have changed, though I still enjoy a good steak, but when a prawn cocktail is served as a bed of lettuce, slices of cucumber and one unpeeled prawn with sauce, that put me off.
My favourite food without a doubt now is Cheesecake. I love the stuff, and having found a recipe that involves no baking other than melting butter to which you add bashed biscuits, easy peasy!
Take your pick. I made them all.

 

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have recently lost our beloved dog Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney, and now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of my GSD so had hers done too. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

    Those cheesecakes look so good! I’m not supposed to eat sugar any more, but I’d take a bite or two! 🙂

    • Sadly although no sugar is added (optional in the cheesecake mix itself) there is sugar in the biscuits. I’m toying with the idea of trying whipped greek yogurt instead of cheese and cream. Depends how long the yogurt stay whhipped!

    Have you tried kefir? My roommate and I have some here and it’s so delicious! We were thinking it could be good in a cheesecake

    Looks so tempting! The problem with cheesecake is that I’d eat the whole thing! Sparky has much better self control when it comes to sweets. I’m making chocolate mousse tonight – perhaps I’ll get my graham cracker crust out and make your recipe later this week!

    I could do with a wedge of those myself. I know it’s “plain” but I like vanilla cheesecake – with proper vanilla though.
