Greetings, readers. I thought it might be fun today to share with you my top ten favorite foods. According to our search results, I haven’t done this one yet, though I thought I had. I love meal time and snacking so almost any food or beverage will be included. Only #1 will be in order.
#10. Pepperoni pizza. [Although I can’t have it very often, because it gives me heartburn, I love a good pepperoni pizza. Pizza Hut and Domino’s are two excellent pies but my favorite in town is from an Italian restaurant called Mamma Mia’s. They serve the pizza from a traditional Italian recipe.]
#9. Steak. [A good thick filet brings back memories of 4th of July barbeques with the family. Dad only used the grill once or twice a year, but he sure knew how to do it. I like mine cooked medium.]
#8. French fries. [I don’t have them too often, but my favorite ones are from McDonald’s. They are usually crispy and not too terribly greasy.]
#7. Earl Grey hot tea. [No, I’m not related to Jean-Luc Picard from Star Trek: The Next Generation, but I do enjoy the occasional cup of Earl Grey, with a little bit of cream and honey. It is my second hot beverage of choice.]
#6. The Subway six-inch sandwich. [My favorite is pepperoni and provolone cheese toasted, on 9 grain honey-oat bread, with a little bit of lettuce and mayonnaise. A delightful light dinner.]
#5. Cheesecake. [Let’s just say, don’t put a whole one in front of me. It wouldn’t last long.]
#4. Fried chicken. [When our town used to have a Kentucky Fried Chicken, I would go there on a semi-regular basis and chow down for not much money. I would enjoy extra crispy with mashed potatoes, a biscuit and a drink.]
#3. Grilled Stickies from Ye Olde College Diner. [A wonderful dessert item best served warm with a scoop or two of vanilla ice cream. It is an award-winning treat specific to this town.]
#2. Coffee. [I’ve enjoyed this beverage since the age of ten and it is my go-to drink, my beverage of choice. About a year ago I bought a Keurig and I can enjoy as many cups per day that I want to. Bring on the breakfast blend!]
#1. Ice Cream. [My go-to depression comfort food. I’m going out on a limb here to let my regular readers know that when I am at my most depressed it is not uncommon for me to take a half-gallon, watch Netflix, and enjoy the entire container watching my shows. Is this the fast lane to diabetes? Oh, yes. So I have cut back on doing this. My favorite flavor is Edy’s Oreo Cookies ‘n Cream. OMG.
Honorable mention I just thought of: Almost any favor of Dunkin’ Donuts doughnuts. [I just love the smell when you walk in the front door.]
It is a dim day outside but I got a lot of work done today, including this blog entry, checking Facebook and Twitter, and writing a blurb for a back book cover. It turned out really well, thanks to Rebecca. Until next Wednesday, take care, have a great weekend and happy reading.
