Foodie or Nah?

Never would I go as far as calling myself a foodie. I do like food though. There are a million restaurants in Los Angeles that I want to try. I think if I had a bit more time on my hands, I’d be a food snob. I’m kind of fascinated by yummy and creative recipes. While I do like good eats, my favorites are pretty simple. I don’t have a specific favorite dish but more fave ingredients. If these things are present in a dish, I’m probably going to order it.


Spinach – This probably doesn’t make the favorites list of most people. What can I say, I’m odd that way. I like to eat spinach in salads, sauteed or in a dip. Pretty much, I’ll take it however I can get it.

Goat cheese – Done deal. I keep some in the fridge to sprinkle over salads. Every now and then I have a log of it covered in blueberries to spread on to crackers. Love this stuff!

french freisvia

French fries – How simple. Fries have been my favorite food since high school. I used to eat them so much that at 18 my doctor told me to slow up before I started having health issues. Pfft.What did he know? *I did slow WAY up and hardly eat them now. But when I do…


Plantains– I’ll take them dried or fried, just hand them over. My favorite Cuban restaurant here in Los Angeles serves them as a staple side dish. It’s usually the first thing to go on my plate. My son gets so excited about them too. He starts smiling and wiggling in his seat. I’ve created a plantain eating monster! LOL!


Linguine – For some reason this is my favorite pasta. I totally prefer it over spaghetti. Sometimes I make it with olive oil and a few herbs or use a plain marinara. It’s perfection either way.

Use any of these in a recipe and I’m probably a guaranteed fan. Suddenly, I’m hungry…

Tell me, what are some of your favorite things to eat?

    I love everything you have listed here. Except, would you believe I have never had a plantain??? I think I am missing out.

      Wait, wha???? Back the truck up, you’ve never had a plantain before? You have to try fried plantains, with sweet cream (I have a recipe) they are SO good. It’s an El Salvadoran traditional breakfast.

    I’ve always loved goat cheese and spinach, too. Especially if they’re in a dish together! I wouldn’t call myself a goodie, but I can definitely enjoy some tasty food.

    I love fries too! Probably too much. I also am obsessed with Chinese chicken balls and sweet and sour sauce! Yum

    I’m so excited to find someone that loves spinach like I do! It seems like a weird thing to people if you say your favorite food is spinach when their’s is like pizza. Spinach pizza is great too!

    I want to try this all. I’m very pregnant and just the sight of those fries is driving me mad, but in a hungry, good kind of way.

    You have such a variety of foods listed, and reading your post. Well, I think maybe you ARE a foodie, and you don’t know it!

    I enjoy all of these foods, except for the plantains. I’ve never tried those, although I’ve heard they are good.

    Ok, goat cheese I understand. Spinach I only like raw. I’ll try ANYTHING that has Brie or Truffle oil in it.

    Linguine with a little pesto has such a nice bite to it. I like spaghetti, but I like the linguine better too.

    I love seafood and fried fish is always a favorite for me as well as crab cakes. Bread is also another food weakness of mine. I’m sure I should cut back more than half my bread intake, but they’re just too yummy breads out there.

    I don’t think I’m a foodie either, but I sure love cooking, trying out new recipes and new restaurants. I’m a big fan of spinach too even though I know most people don’t like it, but I just don’t see it. Also I could pretty much eat anything with potatoes in it. Yum!
