The tree of happiness

Friday 6.22pm

Nicola has tagged me with this meme - "The tree of happiness" I have to list six things that make me happy. She has also stipulated that they have to be food inspired. So, in no particular order they are . . . . 

1. Soup. Obviously. I liken it to painting, sketching really, with flavours.

2. Traditional cooking, old fasioned recipes that make the most of what you have, especially if they belong to the area you live in.

3. Seasonal ingredients. Although it is always nice to have green beans at Christmas I feel my body needs and expects certain things at certain times of the year.

4. Organic produce. We need to treat the world and the rest of its inhabitants with respect. The more organic produce I see the happier I am.

5. Cooking for other people. The whole thing, tiring as it is, from planning to preparing and serving. It is a good feeling to have fed four, five, six or more people succesfully and see them enjoying themselves. My first few Christmas and Sunday lunches I count as a big success in my life.

6. Lemon tart. My most favourite pudding ever, served with cream poured over of course.

And now I need to nominate someone to continue this . . . . Jo I think, should be interesting, might involve beer perhaps (and I am all for beer).

It tooke some effort, but I managed to avoid listing beer, as something that makes me happy, although there are times when it helps...
