Kitchen Glutton

A friend of mine remarked lately that every time she rings me I'm either cooking or eating or shopping for dinner so I thought I'd go the whole hog (so to speak) and blog about it too. I'm going to fess up about this from the start - I love food. No, I mean I really love food. I'm sure I focus on food more than is normal. I tend to be working out what I'm going to eat for my next meal before I've even cooked this one. So in order to be able to indulge my passion without becoming one of those people who have to have the roof taken off their house in order to be removed by a crane while barely covered in a bedsheet I have to pack as much taste into my cooking as possible so that I will satisfy my appetite with a reasonable amount of food. It seems like twisted logic but if I don't make my meal completely hum with gorgeousness I spend all evening eating (like that fella who had to push the boulder up the hill forever without getting anywhere). I know that there's no way I'm going to be good so I have to be a little bit bad just to get it out of my system so that I don't have a complete meltdown later on and sit on the floor on front of the fridge cramming food into my face. Then sometimes just for the hell of it I go for a complete blowout just to prove I can. I'm one of those people that if I think I cant then I have to, absolutely must, am irresistibly compelled to (this trait of mine extends to all areas of my life and can make things awkward for everyone at times but that's a whole other story). My family are complete foodies too which does nothing to solve the nature/nurture debate.
Today I cooked three delicious meals - lunch, dinner and tomorrows dinner but you'll have to take my word for it because I hadn't thought of blogging then. I'll start tomorrow. In the meantime I'm having a drinkie on front of the telly with the laptop on my knee destroying my sperm count and the fire lit - well it is St Patricks Day (not that I'd need an excuse) In my drinkie I have vodka, peach schnappes, tropical juice from lidl and a splash of 7up because I'm like a child and it has to be sweet or I wont like it. Slainte!
