What food makes you feel good and why?
Okay so by rights the question here should be ‘What food doesn’t make you feel good?’ – I love everything! Nothing beats a good homemade lasagne where the cheese has gone brown in places and the layers are clear, served with a warm garlic bread and salad. Or in summer, a barbecue is the go to food!
However, the one meal that will forever make me feel good is Christmas dinner. I’ve already started planning the Christmas dinner for our flat in December!
We always have a Bloody Mary Soup for a starter. I’m pretty sure I’ve mentioned it here but it’s basically a tomato soup with celery, Tabasco sauce and vodka, served with a freshly baked petit pain. Of course, the main course is the an important part. That succulent turkey, served with a slice of gammon, stuffing, mashed potatoes, roast potatoes, carrot and parsnip, brussel sprouts, and a good gravy! Who here doesn’t love christmas dinner?
Our desserts are always the same – a lemon meringue, a trifle, and homemade christmas pudding. No one in the flat likes christmas pudding though so I may make myself a mini one just to be awkward… Finally, we always finish, or try to finish, with a cheese board. There’s a reason we start eating so early!
There’s just something about the Christmas Dinner that makes it special. I don’t know if it’s because we’re all feeling festive, or if it’s because the family are together and in a good mood, or what. But it is definitely my favourite food.
