Revive the senses through feel-good food. Just do anything food-wise, no matter how small, that makes you zing: pour hot water over fresh herbs for a fragrant tea; buy a whole organic pumpkin for a kitchen table centrepiece; thank a farmer at a farmers' market; put your hands on warm earth; spot a local rosemary bush; snag some for your lamb roast or your hair (Why not? Go nuts!); and comment to share your feel-good spring snippet. If stuck for ideas, mine are yours. Let's unite in support of feel-good food and ethical food practices. Thanks to all too who supported my Spring Feel-Good Food Project. I had a blast! While my food interests are diverse, so is my food writing history (and lifestyle freelance writing and corporate writing, yada...). Please see below right and my new FoodLit Website. Yeah! Please also subscribe for occasional food-fuelled news, ventures and opportunities.

Dunk and KerPlunk.... Day 22, 70 To Go....

What is it with going away - and preparing food all day long, or longer, before you go? 

While eating really well is really important to me, sometimes I wish I could simply grab a few snags, a loaf of bread, and a few cans of ... er ... I wouldn't know what - and be done with it. 

But it's not in my genes. Hence spending a good chuck of the day preparing food for a hiking trip.

I won't go into all I made. I'm too knackered. I'm also busy dunking Nonna's Biscuits into hot tea - my ultimate comfort food. I grabbed a pack while out shopping for the trip. Of course, I grabbed an extra one for the actual trip.

After all, after hiking mountains in cold, probably windy, possibly wet weather, I reckon we deserve a little Nonna love, albeit from a packet. 

They're very good in themselves, but better still for being infused with memories of childhood, home and Sunday night baking marathons finished with dunking oven-warm biscuits in a glass of cold milk - and maybe a game of KerPlunk.
