Today’s Blogtober post is all about my favourite foods. The prompt required ten, but I simply couldn’t think of that many! I think being gluten free has limited some things for me. For example I used to love yorkshire puddings but just haven’t found a decent gluten free alternative. Except for the ones that we had at our wedding. The chef (Andy Parle, if you’re in the market for an incredible caterer) spent weeks perfecting the batter mix and boy, it showed! It was really important to me to have a 100% gluten free wedding day as I just wanted to have one day where I knew I could eat anything in the room. I loved not having to say, “oh, I can’t eat that,” which I seem to say on an almost daily basis!
So, here’s my list:
Padron peppers – delicious fried in a bit of olive oil and sprinkled with Maldon sea salt. Perfect as a starter or when you’re waiting for your main course to cook.
Roast pork – I think this is my favourite meat; definitely my top choice for roast dinner.
Gluten-free pork pies from Marks & Spencer. Probably the best gluten-free pork pies I’ve found and a must have addition to any picnic.
Marks & Spencer hot chocolate fudge pudding – gluten free; probably the best pudding I’ve ever tasted, and the fact that it is gluten-free is amazing as most delicious things seem to contain things I can’t eat. Must be served with vanilla ice cream, otherwise it’s just too rich!
Blueberries – probably my favourite fruits I eat them all the time. I particularly like them on the cereal in the morning.
Toblerone – hubby has taken to buying me a giant one at Christmas and on birthdays. It’s the only time I have one so it’s a real treat!
Bananas – I eat at least one banana every day. They’re great for a quick energy boost if I’m in a situation where I can’t make my lunch until 3pm. Which seems to happen most days!
