The Top Ten Seasonal Foods To Ditch The Winter Blues
Winter is the season to be jolly, right? Y'know, good will and all that? Well,
when you're feeling the winter blues, the only answer is to comfort eat. So, I've
compiled a list of the Top Ten Seasonal Foods To Ditch Those Winter Blues. So,
get a spoon, a fork, and a knife, and dig in! Feel free to sample the foods on
this list. (-: Ideally, my perfect winter food would either fill me up or make
my belly warm, and each of the foods on this list are at least one of these! PS:
Please ignore the commentary from my Xweetok Serephinox; he likes to feel included!
10) The tenth delicious wintery food on my list is:
Me: The filling Sausage and Cheese Roll! This is perfect to eat for breakfast
on a cold morning, because as soon as it hits your stomach you are filled with
a warm, full, satisfied feeling that can't be beaten.
Serephinox: These are very yummy with just enough cheese and not too many sausagey
bits. It's soft to bite but firm inside. Yum-eee!
9) Number nine on my list is...
Me: The Sakhmetian Brew is a great drink with a frothy
layer on top and deliciously hot, strong liquid underneath. The funny thing
is, nobody knows quite what the liquid is, although some people have it rumored
that it is a fiery brew of cement from Coltzan's shrine and juice of aged tchea
fruits... A good nightcap.
Serephinox: Apparently, Princess Amira used to drink these all the time. Well,
if it's good enough for royalty, it's good enough for me! It's got a tasty hot
flavour that's not too sweet and not too sour!
8) At number eight is:
Me: The Cheese and Onion Baked Apple is great for Christmas parties. Everybody
loves 'em and they are easy to cook. All you do is bake an apple, then coat
it in melted cheese and onion. If you really wanted, you can leave the onion
off, but that's up to you. In my opinion, onion is a required taste.
Serephinox: Yeah, these are delicious - they fill up your whole tummy with
their mixture of fruity savory-ness. They're so yummy that they're all gone
after five minutes! *looks sheepish* It wasn't me, mummy!
7) The seventh item on my list is...
Me: The Grunion Fruit Grog is made of blended grunion fruits. It is delicious
to drink with meals and fills your tummy with a warm spicy glow. Caution is
required - the excessive spiciness of this beverage may cause slight burnage
of the tongue! A great tip for drinking these is to brew it in the microwave
for a couple of minutes first - it softens the grunion bits to perfection!
Serephinox: Mmmm, I love drinking this when I'm playing pirates - it's yummy
yummy in my tummy! And it has little bitty pieces of grunion in it... delish!
6) Number six is:
Me: Beetroot Pastry Puffs! The pastry puffs also come
in carrot, gherkin, and mushroom, so if you don't like beetroot, don't despair!
These are flaky pastry rolls filled with a mash of vegetable and sprinkled with
snow pepper - which adds to the seasonal theme! These are yummy for posh parties
- a great nibbly treat that even the poshest, pickiest guest can't turn their
nose up at!
Serephinox: Yes, I love eating these. They kind of burst in your mouth like
a vegetable pastry balloon. Hey, my English teacher would be proud of that simile!
5) At number five on my yum-tastic list is...
Me: There's not much better on a cold day than a Baked
Rye Loaf - the warm dough fills you up and satisfies you to no end. These are
great with homemade marmalade as a warm breakfast treat.
Serephinox: Apparently Blumaroos love these - goodness knows why. All I know
is that they're a tasty treat I can't get enough of! Mummy, can I have a baked
rye loaf and butter sandwich for my dinner at school tomorrow?
4) The fourth culinary delight on my list is...
Me: Yep - Wintermelon Sweets are a lovely snack to make you really appreciate
the cool iciness of the winter months. They are tasty and fresh, and their wintermelon
flavor is so distinctive people venture far into the forests of Terror Mountain
to find it.
Serephinox: Mummy doesn't usually let me eat sweets - but even she can't resist
3) Third on my list is:
Me: As it says in the description, Tasty Pie can cure any Neopet of its blues
- especially winter blues! Its warm flaky pastry and satisfying meaty filling
fill your belly and make you as happy as a Blumaroo on a merry go round.
Serephinox: Now it's winter we have these for dinner almost every night - but
we don't get sick of them! They're the perfect winter treat, with their meaty
goodness and pastry delight!
2) The second food on my list is...
Me: These Cinnamon Dough Bundles are a delicious dessert
for winter time. Their cinnamon flavors and doughy texture make them great with
custard, cream, and any other topping you can think of! They're even delicious
on their own, which is more than you can say about most puddings!
Serephinox: Yeah, these are really nice. I love eating these - they'd be good
on Christmas morning, like little cinnamon presents!
1) At the top of my tasty, yummy, satisfying, warm, delicious, beautiful,
perfect, delicate, culinary masterpiece, recipe miracles, and just plain GORGEOUS
Me: Hurray! The Seasonal Chocolate Pudding, a wobbly
cake masterpiece that will fill you up, warm you thoroughly, and tickle your
tastebuds until they giggle in glee! This is by far the best seasonal dish anyone
in Neopia has ever come across in their whole entire lives! Whoopee!
Serephinox: Mmmm, I could eat a gazillion of these - they're the yummiest food
Me: Right, Serephinox, let's go - we've got a seasonal banquet to prepare!
Me: Thanks for reading, guys!
