A Perfect Food Day

A Perfect Food Day… I hadn’t really ever consciously thought about it until I last week when I was listening to the Spilled Milk podcast and Molly and Matthew were talking about their perfect day of food.

Their perfect days sounded so good, and they seemed to be having so much fun putting it together, that I thought…

Let’s put together our Perfect Food Day!

My perfect food day, doesn’t involve restaurants… It’s all food to be eaten at home with my family….

Ok, well, lets start the day as we should, breakfast- I would definitely have to enjoy a long Turkish breakfast (preferably outdoors). The thing I love most about a Turkish breakfast is the social aspect, sitting down with family and friends eating slowly, drinking cups and cups of tea, chatting, reading the paper, doing sudoku… It really is the best way to start a Saturday or Sunday…

So what does a Turkish Breakfast include?

What doesn’t it include? Tomatoes, cucumbers, white cheese, hard cheese, olives, eggs, parsley, fried potatoes and peppers, honey, jam, butter, crusty bread, fresh orange juice, Turkish tea….

Now usually, after that breakfast, I wouldn’t want lunch, but on a perfect food day, there would be no tummy aches, so here’s lunch…

Something you may not know about me, I’m a sandwich girl. I personally think that a sandwich can be eaten anytime, anywhere. My two favourites are toasted tomato (best when eaten with my dad) and cheese, pickle and mustard.

For my perfect food day though… It would have to be a sandwich like this- whole wheat sliced bread, cheddar cheese, turkey breast (not lunch meat), tomatoe, lettuce, sliced pickles, mayonnaise, mustard, fries on the side with ketchup. San Pellegrino to drink….

In the Podcast, they also chose a snack. There are so many snacks to choose from, but if I had to choose one, than it would have to be nacho chips and some sort of salsa layered dip, or veggies and onion dip.

Are you full yet?

Dinner, yes, what’s for dinner. This one is easy, lasagna, caesar salad, garlic bread. Glass of red wine, probably a Pinot noir…. Easy.

And for dessert- chocolate brownie, with vanilla ice cream and salted caramel sauce…. With a coffee…

What do you think?

Are you full?

    I LOVE this! I am soooo going to be writing one of these on my blog, too! My day of food is definitely different than yours, but I love the idea behind your Turkish breakfast.
