Day 13 | favourite food to cook for yourself / have cooked for you

I love my food so this was an easy one for me. I can't possibly choose just one thing as my favourite to cook for myself. It depends what mood I'm in on the day. Today, because it's been so beautiful and sunny, I made my favourite summer time dish which is paella. It reminds me of balmy evenings on holiday, eating al fresco and with a cold glass of white wine to go with it, its the perfect summer evening meal.

I get the most satisfaction from cooking when I have either concocted something myself or made a meal out of what seems like nothing. One of my favourite examples of this is the best meal of the whole year.... Boxing Day lunch. 

Bubble and squeak with cold meats and chutney is one of my all time favourite meals. To think you can make something so tasty out of some leftover vegetables and a couple of eggs.... I love meals like that. Minimal effort and maximum taste.

I love eating out, so I had to think long and hard about my favourite thing to have cooked for me. Again, it very much depends on my mood. 

But in terms of one of the best tasting 'meals' I can ever remember someone bringing me - and this is a bit odd, I know - nothing beats the cup of hot sweet tea and two pieces of thick buttered toast that was brought to me after I'd given birth to my first baby.

Ok, so I threw it all straight back up again within a few minutes but, at the time, it was food perfection.
