Food I love

So I've been thinking a lot about what to post next. I've decided to talk a bit about some food that I really like. I'll try taking some photos of some of the food I'm going to mention the next time I make it.

Since I'm pretty busy all the time I find it hard to spend alot of time cooking. I think that if I had the time I would but sometimes it is just not possible. Here is a list of some of my favorite quick and easy foods. I think this is also a good time to mention that I love bread, cheese and mustard.

Bagel and Cheese
Yes I know it sounds very simple, which it is but it is fantastic. I cut a bagel in half and put whatever cheese I have inside. I then pop it in the microwave for a few seconds until the cheese melts. Don't put it in the microwave to long, the bread will come out all hard.

Tomato Paste on toast
Another one that is exactly what it sounds like. I toast bread and put butter on it then I spread tomato paste ontop. It taste amazing.

Sauteed Mushrooms
I tend to eat this for breakfast with eggs. Slice mushrooms thinly, I tend to use button mushrooms but I have also used shiitake mushrooms. In a frying pan heat some butter, when the butter is melted add the mushrooms. Sautee the mushrooms, don't put to may mushroom in the pan because the mushrooms will let out quite a bit of water. I add a pinch of salt to the mushroom and once they are golden brown they are done.

Croissants with brie
I live above a 24 hour grocery store, that sells fresh croissants. For whatever reason they like to make them fresh at 11pm every night, but when I have late night food cravings I can always get a fresh croissants. I put brie cheese inside them and they taste lovely. If the croissants are warm when you put the cheese in it taste even better

Blue cheese sandwich
Alright I know another one with bread and cheese but this is to die for. Well to die for if you like blue cheese. I toast some bread and put butter and mustard on it. I use Dijon mustard for this, I tried honey mustard once when I didn't have any Dijon and it wasn't that great. Then place a few slices of blue cheese I use Danablu but I want to try it with Stilton. Enjoy!

I can't think of anything else at the moment so I'll leave you all. I assume I'll be posting more of these little ramblings of what I like. I'm currently in the process of moving so I'm trying to move with as little food as possible. I'm going to be making banana bread and alot of pasta dishes this week so I'm sure there will be alot of new postings
