Food Award I – III

As a keen amateur home cook and baker I was, of course, delighted to be nominated by three wonderful bloggers for the Food Award.

Firstly, Mrs Holiman over at God’s Love, spreading the Lord’s words, who has her own wonderful chef aka Mr Holiman.

Next, Rishabh Kumar who shares his poetic journey with memories on Myjooypress.  He freely admits to being less experienced in the kitchen but he’s clearly mastered some classics already.

Finally, last but not least, Wild at Heart who writes over at WildScaredCrazy who claims she wouldn’t have had this award if it was given on the basis of her cooking and eating skills. But, now that she’s gotten it, she’s claiming it with joy.

Please drop by all these blogs, check them out and give them a supportive follow!

My Nominees

Are you someone who loves spending time in the kitchen? Do you have a food blog? Do you post fabulous pictures of food on your blog? Do you have recipes on your blog?

If you can answer “yes” to any of these questions, please consider yourself nominated. Answer any five questions from those posed below.

Mrs H’s Questions

1. What is your favourite dessert?

It used to be my mother’s lemon meringue pie – a legend it its own lifetime. But now that I can’t eat dairy, I’m much less fussed about desserts. I’ll happily skip them, or maybe have some fresh fruit.

2. What is your favourite snack on a hiking trip?

One of my home-made oat bars.

3. Do you like Mayo?

Only if it’s homemade and vegan.

4. Would you rather a hamburger or a hotdog?

TBH, even before I became vegan, I wasn’t overly fond of either. However, I do make vegan burgers so that’ll be “Hamburger” then.

5. What is your favorite salad dressing?

One that’s appropriate for the dish in question though, of course, it’s hard to beat a classic French vinagrette.

Rishabh’s and Wild at Heart’s Questions

1. What do you usually have for breakfast?

Glass of water with fresh lemon juice, something with oats or homemade nut butter or spicy avocado on toast, then black coffee.

2. Are you personally a good cook?

I love cooking and people seem to love eating what I cook, so I’m probably not too bad! Check out my recipes under “The Musette” banner.

3. Do you like chocolate? What is your favourite type?

Yes and I like my chocolate to be at least 70% cocoa

4. Which type of food can you NEVER EVER eat even if some one threatens you to eat it?

I don’t eat dairy, soy, meat products or fried foods.

5. Which food did you or you are eating forcefully?

Not sure I understand this question. I only eat foods I enjoy eating.

Song Lyric Sunday #2

Check out Jim Adams’ Song Lyric Sunday Challenge, a man after my own heart as he posts the challenges well in advance! This week’s challenge is Different/Same which really made me put my thinking cap on.

How about different productions of the same record? In this case “Low” by Lenny Kravitz from his Raise Vibration Album (2018). I don’t think multi-Grammy award winner Lenny needs much of an introduction!

This track is from his 11th studio album and features posthumous guest vocals from Michael Jackson. It was released as the album’s second single on 25th May, 2018. “Low” became Kravitz’s first song to peak #1 on Billboard’s Dance Club Songs, thanks to several remixes by David Guetta (version below), Tom Stephan, and Junior Black.

 

Here are those all-important lyrics:-

Low

If you wanna talk to me
Know that I am planning to see
Yeah, yeah, hey, hey
I don’t want this thing to be
Staining my reality, yeah, yeah

Don’t lift me up
To turn me down
I just want a lover
Baby stay with me on the floor
Talk with me, let me go
Got to keep below
Talk with me, let me go
Got to keep below

Don’t lift me up
To turn me down
I just want a lover
Baby stay with me on the floor
Talk with me, let me go
Got to keep below
Talk with me, let me go
Got to keep below

If you bought the fantasy
It’s murder in the first degree, yeah
Yeah
Is my sexuality
Creating such a tragedy, yeah
Yeah

Don’t lift me up
To turn me down
I just want a lover
Baby, stay with me on the floor
Talk with me, let me go
Got to keep below
Talk with me, let me go
Got to keep below

Don’t lift me up
To turn me down
I just want a lover
Baby stay with me on the floor
Talk with me, let me go
Got to keep below
Talk with me, let me go
Got to keep below, ooh

I’m so tired of playing this crazy game
Someone’s always left out in the rain
Is there a chance that we can make it, uh
Just keep it real ’cause we can’t fake it, yeah

‘Cause you and I can’t take this anymore
We’ve got to keep our feet right on the floor
There’s no more secrets, no more lying
Baby I’m really, really trying
To get to love

Don’t lift me up
To turn me down
I just want a lover
Baby stay with me on the floor
Talk with me, let me go
Got to keep below
Talk with me, let me go
Got to keep below

Don’t lift me up
To turn me down
Baby stay with me on the floor
Talk with me, let me go
Got to keep below
Talk with me, let me go
Got to keep below, ooh
Don’t lift me up
To turn me down
Baby, stay with me on the floor

Talk with me, let me go
Got to keep below
Talk with me, let me go
Got to keep below, ooh<
