Five a Day
You’ve being exiled to a private island, and your captors will only supply you with five foods. What do you pick?
I don’t think there will be anything healthy on my list:
Peanut butter cookies – a recent discovery of mine and to borrow a phrase from Friends: “they’re like little drops of heaven.”
Bratwurst – I have to have something German on the list, Bratwurst served in a roll with onions and mustard. You have to have mustard, it’s criminal to eat any kind of sausage or hot dog without it.
Continuing with the German theme, Dusseldorf burgers. I have no idea if they are a real thing or if it’s just something the Germans cooked up to sell to tourists, either way I love them.
Kebab flavoured crisps – I did say my list was unhealthy, I love real kebabs but never eat them anymore, once you take an interest in nutrition and eating healthily there is no going back, no matter how much I crave one I can’t eat them anymore. I’ll tell you how much I love kebabs, when I read a story online that a German football player by the name of Kevin Großkreutz threw a kebab at someone, my first thought wasn’t how stupidly he behaved or anything like that, my first thought was, what an idiot, who would waste a perfectly good kebab like that. Though I am going to try my hand at making my own following a Turkish recipe, I read online that the way the Turks make them does not resemble the rubbish that takeaways serve up.
Last of all, I’d have to say popcorn. I don’t want to live on an island or in a world that does not have sweet cinema style popcorn. And I mean the real stuff, not the rubbish microwave stuff you can get at the store.
