Happy Foods

So was off in the music thread sharing some Aussie music when the name of a band triggered a whole series of happy food memories...although in this case it's a drink. 5hen I got thinking about how some foods just make you feel happy when you eat them or think about them.

 

So what's yours and why...

Today my happy food memory is Lime Spiders..... a glass of lime softdrink with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.... makes me think of summer holidays on my uncles farm crowding into the kitchen to get a treat.... remembering putting on advocates concerts with the cousins, being torchered with bugs and spiders and lizards and snakes by the same cousins so getting an extra scoop to make up for having to put up with the boys all day.

That's a sweet topic @notsmokinjo. My people hail from Canada so it was summers in Vancouver picking blackberries down the lane from my grandmother's house. She used to make a lattice-topped pie. I am pretty sure I took after her: she smoked for 40 years or something but lived well until her late 80's.

Oh....blackberries in summer, climbing through the bracken ferns to get to the ferral blackberry bushes while staying at my Great Aunties house...she would make blackberry jam and then a batch of scones to eat it with, lecturing us the whole time not to go near the blackberry bushes cos that's where the snakes are....

 

Isn't it fun, when you think about these things you can feel the burn of the Sun through your tshirt and you can smell the eucalyptus on the air....it's like a time travel  or is that just me.

I am or was a pretty good cook when I had people to cook for.  Now it is just me. Most of the time I do not feel like it.  I try to cook a casserole once a week, the rest of the time it is the easy or quick stuff.  Baked chicken, steak, salad. I wish you lived closer too! Most of my true cooking was done for others.

Round about late May or early June...it's time for peaches.

 

I'm sure some of the peaches at the grocery store are fine.  However, peach perfection is usually purchased direct from the farmer off the back of a flatbed truck.

 

If you don't have peach juice running down your chin and aren't making m'mmm type noises...you're not doing it right.

We have a peach festival here in July.  All the fresh peaches you could want, you can even buy a bushel.  They also have a huge farmers market there with everything you could want. They close down the city square in Weatherford Texas. There are vendors of arts, crafts and food.

About us

QuitTrain®, a quit smoking support community, was created by former smokers who have a deep desire to help people quit smoking and to help keep those quits intact.  This place should be a safe haven to escape the daily grind and focus on protecting our quits.  We don't believe that there is a "one size fits all" approach when it comes to quitting smoking.  Each of us has our own unique set of circumstances which contributes to how we go about quitting and more importantly, how we keep our quits.
