10 Day "You" Challenge - Day 6

Today's challenge is 'five foods' which really shouldn't be too hard for me as I love food! I definitely have more of a sweet tooth than anything else. Once again, in no particular order...

Food one - cupcakes, an obvious one! Above are lemon butterfly buns I made a few months ago, I absolutely love lemon. I really enjoy making cupcakes whenever I have the time, or whenever there's a birthday coming up or I'm having people over for Christmas or other events. I also buy them anywhere else I see them when I'm out too.

Food two - ice cream. I absolutely adore ice cream. My favourite store bought one is Ben & Jerry's Baked Alaska. Whenever I'm out, I think my favourite is Nutella Bear from Mauds, or else any form of caramel flavour, which is weird because I'm not too fond of caramel in general. The photo that goes with this one is from a place called Morelli's in Portstewart and there is so many flavours to choose from. I ended up choosing Parma Violets which I've never seen before, and Pink Panther.

Food three - chocolate. I don't understand people who say they don't like chocolate because I can't live without it! I think I eat a bit of chocolate every single day. I gave it up for Lent this year (above is the collection I aquired during my time off) and it was one of the hardest things I've ever done, you don't realise just how much chocolate there is in everything. It was so hard for me to pick an ice cream flavour whenever I went to buy any because a lot have little flecks of chocolate in them!

Food four - pizza. Despite the fact that pizza is one of my favourite foods, I'm actually pretty boring with it and only ever get a plain margherita. Not that this bothers me as I absolutely love it and I never have to even look at the menu anytime I go anywhere. I wish we had a California Pizza Kitchen because their pizzas are amazing and it's been my favourite pizza place so far!

Food five - pasta, the ultimate comfort food. Italian food is my favourite, and I love whenever I go out for a meal and there's pasta on the menu, especially one with a creamy sauce. Chiquitos do a lovely dish called Mac 'n' Jack which is plain macaroni cheese but with broken nachos on top and tomatos. At home I love to get a filled pasta and have a sauce over it, or else just use plain pasta, grate some cheese, and throw in some salt and pepper. So easy, and so good!

  1. Pasta and cupcakes! I could eat those for ages together! Chocolate is absolutely delicious and I agree with you on trying to understand how people can't like it?! It's insane! Unless they're allergic to it ... haha! Getting so close to the end :)

  3. i don't understand how people can live without chocolate either! my sister doesn't like it at all really, weirdo >.< super hungry now! xx

    1. Haha, me neither! It's crazy. I remember in primary school there was a girl who was allergic to chocolate and I was sad for her because I love it so much, I'll never forget that!xx
