So I have a bad habit of eating a slab of chocolate daily right, and I don’t intend on breaking this bad habit of mine. Most people think I will get sickly but see the worry in my eye as I am not interested in stopping my addiction or going into rehab anytime soon.
I love chocolate ... wait wait wait, I love all sorts of food.
I think I need to start this post all over again.
Breathe in then out.
My first love is chocolate, but I will have a new blog post just dedicated to my wonderful cacao. #sigh.
Back to FOOD. Right!
I love all sorts of food, it doesn’t matter what it is. It could range from junk fast foods to healthy steamed vegetables drizzled with white garlic cream sauce... I heart it all!
Now the one thing I always look for when buying my ingredients, no matter what dish I will be preparing, will be: WHAT IS ZOE CRAVING TODAY.... I mean what is the point of cooking something when you are not in the mood to even prepare it in the first place? Huh... ya! So it all has to start with you.
Look I didn’t get my culinary skills perfected or sharpened by attending a sassy university to expand my knowledge about food and each and every ingredients origin. But I was born into a family that loves to cook and purely for the love of food. They love cooking so much they buy groceries in bulk as if we were about to get hit by 50 x nuclear bombs in the next month. They buy in bulk cause they love food so much they never want to run out of it and they don’t want to be limited of the quantities they wish to nibble on at any given time or day.
You probably thinking, “Jeeez, your family must be monsters”. To answer your question; ‘No not at all’. They just have an enormous LOVE for food.
With that said, I have to share one of my favourite ‘junks’ of all time. It’s neither healthy nor junk, but it’s a mush-mash of all things yumm....
A Spatlho is a meal which almost resembles a gatsby, except it is made using a quarter of a loaf of bread. The awesome thing about it is that it is huge and filled with lettuce, tomatoes, fried egg, cheese, archar, polony, Russian sausage and topped with slap chips! A special request may be made to add vienna and fish as well... yoh, I'm getting full just describing it! The basic ingredients of it would be: bread, slap chips, cheese and polony. You then, will decide how to UPGRADE it. (Baby let me upgrade you) - #giggles!
