When I’m not eating Oreo cheesecake, Ottolenghi’s chocolate fudge cake and cupcakes in ice cream cones, I have a tendency to eat in a fairly boring manner. Except for a week recently when I ate eye fillet, lamb AND pork, I’m the kind of person who can eat the same thing over and over again without tiring of it. For example I have a banana and coffee for breakfast every day and for about 2 months I’ve alternated between two kinds of packet soup for lunch. (the truth! the horrible truth). If I’m really branching out I might have yoghurt for breakfast as well. Outrageous.
My favourite go-to dinner is baked chicken breast and sweet potato sprinkled with Cajun spice and salad. It’s just so easy and comforting and feels like being hugged from the inside. I add a huge dollop of minced chilli and an even bigger dollop of Greek yoghurt and dip my sweet potato chips in it. Just typing this is making me salivate. I will have this at least once a week, but this week I’ve already had it twice… And it’s only Wednesday.
How do you decide what to have for dinner? Do you cook different things all the time or go back to the same recipes? I love hearing about what other people eat… It ‘feeds’ the voyeur in me. Also I would appreciate some dinspiration (dinner inspiration), so ‘fess up.
