Not much does these days, I don't eat a lot, although to
look at me, well lets just say I'm curvaceous :-)
Was a good cook, did loads of baking in my time and
loved to entertain and feed family and friends. I don't know
about you but I look at things in the supermarket and at the
time think that looks good, buy it and OH or daughter eats it.

But the last 2weeks I have taken delight in eating fresh pineapple
can't get enough of the stuff.
Anything tickle your taste buds these day? :-D

Emma :-)

At the moment it is white chocolate magnums for me Emma, and they are doing me no good at all. I blame T**co - half price indeed, who could resist!!
Fresh pineapple is delicious and very good for you, but I think a magnum would win at the moment :-D


Sue Report 13 Jun 2013 13:42

I have food fads too. At the moment its a certain museli banana and coconut with seeds and nuts., I have been eating a couple of bowls a day.!!

Also ice cream. Like you Lyndi, its the offers at the moment.

Glad its not just me with these eating habits, i wll keep on until i am fed up with it, then wont have it again for ages.!! :-D


GoldenGirl1 Report 13 Jun 2013 13:43

Lyndi went through a magnum stage but not white chocolate
one, leave them to OH his favourites.
Will stick with the pineapple also waiting for Picota cherries
to come on the scene. :-D


GoldenGirl1 Report 13 Jun 2013 13:49

Sue I'm like that also, ate Just Right cereal for months
now can't look at it :-D


Lyndi Report 13 Jun 2013 13:53

I love cherries!! I fact I love most fruits but even with that I can be a tad faddy, Apples and pears are my breakfast staple at the moment (wwith natural yogurt and a few bran flakes sprinkled on) but it will soon be nectarines and peaches :-D

GoldenGirl1 Report 13 Jun 2013 14:03

Fruit and veg I have no problems with but on the day

Golden Girl I got some After 8' yogurt the other day mmmm very nice too


GoldenGirl1 Report 13 Jun 2013 14:13

LOL @ Lyndi :-D


Lyndi Report 13 Jun 2013 14:27

I tried the turkish delight yogurt, and it could have put me off turkish delight for good!!! :-0
It was one of the 'light' yogurts so I thought it might be a healthy option, but it definitely wasn't a happy option. For me it's the real thing or nothing :-D


ButtercupFields Report 13 Jun 2013 14:30

Haven't got my usually voracious appetite at the moment, but am slurping down avocados to beat the band! Love em! :-D <3


GoldenGirl1 Report 13 Jun 2013 14:37

Oooh Nolls After 8 yogurt, have to think about that one.
Don't fancy the Turkish Delight one.

BC had avocado from son when I visited last Saturday
in me salad, first time I had tasted it, it was OK but didn't
tickle me buds much :-D


Merlin Report 13 Jun 2013 14:43

Emma,Whats this you fancying things? Hmmmm. mind boggles. at why. Have you tried the famous Curried Haggis? its supposed to be good if you mix it with pineapple sauce or mint. :-D :-D :-D


GoldenGirl1 Report 13 Jun 2013 14:47

Merls you know I don't like haggis, but a deep fried Mars Bar
