25 Question Food Tag....

I saw this tag over on Anca's Lifestyle absolutley ages ago and wanted to answer the questions too.....I do love my food. hehehe

1. What’s your favourite breakfast?
I do love a full English breakfast but don't have them often enough which is probably a good thing for my waistline.....Sausages, bacon, eggs, mushrooms, hash browns, tomatoes, black pudding, beans, toast. Fresh orange juice and coffee....

2. How do you drink your coffee?
With milk and 2 sugars....I have 2 or 3 cups a day. I have recently discovered iced coffee too....Wow!

3. What’s on your favourite sandwich?
A foot long tuna sandwich from Subway with tomato, cucumber, onion but no lettuce....

4. Soup or Salad?
I would have to say salad....I do love a Prawn cocktail salad. I'm not too fussed about soup. I always seem to spill and slop when I eat

5. What’s your favourite cookbook?
I don’t have a favourite cookbook. I tend to get most of my recipes from online. Mostly from Tesco or Netmums.

6. No more sweets or no more hearty foods?
As much as I love sweet food and desserts I could give them up....I love hearty foods. Especially in the winter or when I'm feeling grumpy.

7. What’s your favourite Cuisine?
Chinese....I could quite easily eat it every day....Not just the takeaway. I am quite good at cooking Chinese food too.

8. What’s your favourite food movie?
Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs.

9. What’s your most guilty pleasure?
Jaffa Cakes. I can't just eat one. Most of the time it's the full packet. Oops.

10. What’s your greatest inspiration source?
Blogs and the internet.

11. Cooking at home or going out for dinner?
I would love to go out for dinner every night but it would soon get boring so I would have to go with cooking at home or even cheating and getting a takeaway....hehehe

12. High end or low profile?
With the kids we prefer low profile chain restaurants....McDonalds, Frankie & Benny's, TGI Fridays, Brewers Fayre... 

13. What’s your favourite restaurant?
Brewers Fayre. The food is good, reasonably priced and it has an indoor and an outdoor play area for the kids. Stu and I get to eat and chat while the kids play.....

14. I do my grocery shopping at:
Tesco. I get it delivered most weeks.

15. The tastiest food I’ve ever eaten was:
Some chicken pie when I was in hospital having Ellie....It was amazing. I have tried to make my own since and have bought one's but nothing comes close....

17. Coffee with George Clooney or Heston Blumenthal?
Coffee with George Clooney of course.

18. What should not be missing in your kitchen?
The microwave....It is great for reheating, defrosting and a quick meal...

19. What is your favourite snack?
Sour Cream & Onion Pringles.

20. What’s on your pizza?
Tomato sauce, pepperoni, ham, ground beef, sausage, red onions, mushrooms and mozzarella cheese....Also known as the Mighty Meat from Domino's....hehehe

21. What food do you really dislike?
Broccoli and cabbage.

22. What’s your favourite food blog?
There are so many of them, but I’ll name three: Eats Amazing for amazing kids food ideas. Hijacked by Twins which is a great mix of recipes and family life and Elizabeth's Kitchen Diary.

23. What’s the weirdest thing you’ve ever eaten?
I don't think I've eaten anything really weird....Just the normal strange things like frogs legs, octopus, deer & oysters.

24. What’s on your food bucket list?
Go out for a proper afternoon tea, growing our own veg and eating it and having a pizza in Italy!

25. I couldn’t live without:
Bread....I probably eat too much of it but it is handy for toast in the morning and a quick sandwich at lunchtime...

BONUS question: If you could only eat one thing for the rest of your life, what would it be?
Scampi, chips and peas. It is one of my favourite meals which I wouldn't get sick of.

I’m not going to nominate for the tag but if you fancy doing it go ahead....


  1. What a brilliant tag - and have you really eaten Frogs Legs?!!? Hahah!!
    Oh yes, I suggest you do go out and treat yourself to a proper afternoon tea. I did this once for my birthday and I can still taste the gorgeous, delicate sandwiches and cakes *drooling!!*
    As for Sour Cream & Onion Pringles, they're just addictive!
    Brilliant tag - do you mind if I take it on?

    1. I certainly have tasted frogs legs. They were nothing special. hehehe
      I will go for an afternoon tea one day.
      Of course go for it....I can't wait to read your answers x

  2. I'm doing this tag when I get a chance! Well done on trying oysters...I love all fish but just can't stand the thought of the slime! Thankfully, the lovely boyfriend doesn't like fish at all so I'll be under no pressure any time soon either! Agree 100% about the microwave too :) x

    1. I hated the oysters. They were slimy and I will never eat them again x

  3. OMG we are so alike foodwise, I adore scampi and chips, can't live without bread, Chinese food, prawn cocktail, tuna sandwich, sour cream pringles, lol all my favourites. I just don't like your choice of pizza, I tend to go vegetarian with pizzas. And I love broccoli and cabbage. Also, I'm not a Clooney fan so I'd love to talk to Heston over coffee about his weird ways of cooking :)

    1. Ahh! Broccoli and cabbage....I make my girls eat them but won't myself. hehehe

  4. Hi Kim, what a fun Q&A! Some of the questions I'd never be able to answer though! We get a Jaffa cake equivalent here and I could quite happily munch my way through the whole packet. It must be frustrating that the tastiest food you've ever had was hospital food! Maybe it was the hormones that made it taste so nice!

    Thank you for linking up with the #MMBC.


    1. hehehe! I think the hospital food was so good because I hadn't eaten in about 20 hours. lol x
