I’ve been a little shy with this blog when talking about myself. It’s time to finally do the Fours meme that the lovely VegeYum tagged me for! I’m giving you a bundle of fours, containing facts about me, the girl behind the blog!
Four favourite places in the world
Four places I would like to visit
Japan (especially during the sakura season)
You can see that I’m attracted by all that’s Eastern (apart from Grand Canyon), and all natural (e.g. Grand Canyon). I love being outdoors.
Four favourite ingredients
Herbs! (I know this is cheating, but I couldn’t decide between mint, lemon thyme, basil and coriander! I’m also nuts about spices!)
Four weirdest things I’ve eaten
Chocolate-coated ants (!!!)
Venezuelan ant and chili sauce
Horse steak (S., I hope you’ll still be my friend after you read this! If it’s any consolation, I didn’t like it at all, and I only tried a bit of C’s!)
It wasn’t easy to decide what to put here, because what’s weird to some is perfectly normal to others. That’s me eating snails in the photo above – not that I like them much. I’ve eaten brain (and I really like it), kidneys, tripe (yuck! I hated that, though I like the sauce they’re cooked in), black pudding, lungs, boiled cockerel’s testicles, but I wouldn’t necessarily say that’s very very weird (apart from the latter!). I put frogs’ legs on the list because I didn’t really like the texture nor the taste of them. However, chocolate-coated ants definitely top this list! I bet you’re wondering how they tasted. Well, they were coated in milk chocolate, and so they tasted of that. They were a little salty, and the texture was weird – like very fine fish bones – stick-like, spiky, bitsy. The ant and chili sauce had a great flavour though! I loved it!
Four favourite everyday activities (that I can talk about in public)
Cooking with my husband (especially when baking, and trying new ingredients)
Sitting on a beach in Dalmatia, preferably with a friend
There we go! I must say I had trouble keeping to only 4 things! 🙂
This meme has been around for a while, and a lot of people have done it. Because of this, I won’t tag anyone for this meme. If you wish to do it, consider yourself tagged!
