All The Food I Was Thankful For

When I was doing my 365 thanks year, I gave enough of thanks for various food related things, and the other day I was just wondering what specific types of food I had on my thankful menu - here it is: 

- chocolate (but of course!) and Lindt chocolate in particular
- Starbucks' Americano coffee and cheesecakes (which also happenes to be my second post on this blog!)

Mmmhmm, most of my favorite foods are right here! But I guess it's no suprise! What foods are you thankful for and would add to YOUR thankful menus?* 


P.S. * I kind of like the idea of such thing as a thankful menu!.. Humm!

  1. i love the amount of sweets on this list :) do you eat meat? you have fish, well raw fish on the list. was just wondering.
    my list is super similar, will probably also include red bell peppers, i have been addicted to those lately and granola.

  2. oatmeal- it is such a good old fashion easy meal- my monkeys sometimes eat it for lunch on the weekends when they are busy playing inside and don't want to come in to eat- quick to make quick to eat and it sticks to your bones and keeps you full for a long time, has so much fiber and low fat!

  5. what a cute way to put it together! I love that you called it a "menu" :) Yum, I love your list though I can't say I've tried caviar- just never taken the plunge. I adore Starbuck's Americanos, they get me through my life and rice is always a favorite (sadly, to me it's best with butter and salt and pepper). My thankful menu would definitely include chicken and peppercini, I can't seem to get enough of either of those... ooo, and asparagus and artichokes!

  11. Popcorn- especially the movie theater variety
    Nutella- especially in a crepe with bananas
    Mangoes (totally feel you on that one)- sweet and sour together- 'nuff said:)
    and finally Quinoa- because it is super-healthy and super-yummy at the same time. Brilliant really.

  17. @Anna: Yes, I do eat meat! And cooked fish too :) Just that most of the time I would choose seafood over meat. I must say that the list doesn't include some of the other foods I really like, but it's the list compiled of the things I specifically mentioned and gave specific thanks for during my thanksgiving year! And I love bell eppers too!! Yellow are my favorite :)

    Hope you had a great weekend Julia!
