FOOD & DRINK / ARE YOU A FELLOW FOODIE?
Isn't food just bloody brilliant? Not only does it keep you alive and kickin' but most of it - coriander aside because I despise the stuff - tastes so goddamn delicious. As a self-declared foodie myself, I can tell you there are some pretty telltale signs that you’re part of the club... let's see if you qualify.
You're a foodie when...
YOU RATE THE PARTY BASED ON THE SNACKS
... good music, check. Good variety of booze, check. Snacks...? If they haven't got any nibbles, I'm outta there. I like me some pretzels.
FOOD SHOPPING BRINGS YOU ACTUAL JOY
... especially Whole Foods and Costco because, well, hello tasters. It's like going for a mini buffet whilst doing your weekly shop.
YOU ACTUALLY OWN SPICES
... and know how they compliment each other. Kinda.
YOUR 'RECOMMENDATIONS FOR YOU' ON AMAZON ARE ALL FANCY NEW COOKBOOKS
... and you could've put down a deposit on a house by now if you hadn't bought all of them.
YOU INSTAGRAM EVERY MEAL
... and annoyingly make your family / friends / partner halt before they munch down so you can get the perfect shot(s).
YOU PLAN YOUR HOLIDAYS AROUND WHERE YOU'RE GOING TO EAT
... I mean, the sights are great but we all know I'm there for the food. I'll book a table at the top restaurants before I've even booked the flight. Priorities as always.
YOU THINK ABOUT FOOD ALL DAY, EVERY DAY
... I won't lie, I'm thinking about breakfast as I'm falling asleep and dinner as soon as I wake up.
YOU NEED TO HAVE A SNACK ON YOU AT ALL TIMES
... snacks in the handbag is critical because 'hangry' is just not good for anyone.
YOU OWN FOOD RELATED CLOTHING
... yep, I've totally got a pair of avocado PJ's and I'm not ashamed to admit it.
YOU'RE SERIOUSLY ADDICTED TO THE FOOD NETWORK
... nothing else even exists in my household. I don't remember a life before Jamie's 15 Minute Meals or Man v Food.
YOU GO TO THE CINEMA FOR THE POPCORN
... the film being good is the icing on the cake. But of course, the sweet & salty popcorn is why I'm really there.
YOU WILL HAPPILY QUEUE FOR A GOOD BRUNCH
... I'll moan about queuing at the bank or anywhere else for that matter, but when it comes to food, I'll happy wait, rain or shine (less so rain but y'know, my hair...)
BROWNING, OVERRIPE BANANAS MAKE YOU GIDDY
... because despite their ugly appearance, they mean one thing and one thing only... BANANA BREAD!!!
A POTENTIAL PARTNER ORDERING STEAK 'WELL DONE' IS A DEAL BREAKER
... I feel like I don't even need to justify the above haha.
So, how many of the above do you fit?!
P.S. Hope you all had a lovely Easter and have thoroughly stuffed your faces with a hell of a lot of chocolate.
