365 Challenge: Day 203 – Foods (Top 10)

Posted on Updated on

Foods: Top 10 foods I love to cook


Sunday posts, the end of each week, have become a theme on This-Is-My-Truth-Now, organized by groups of five (5) focused on interesting things about my life. I’m continuing the trend of the seventh day, ending the week on Sunday, as a list (we know I love them) that provides more in depth knowledge about me.

  • Weeks 1 – 5: Primary ethnicity groups and nationalities
  • Weeks 6 – 10: A to Z Favorites
  • Weeks 11 – 15: Colors with an important meaning
  • Weeks 16 – 20: Cities I’ve lived
  • Weeks 21 – 25: Jobs I’ve held

The next set of 5 Sundays covers the ‘Top 10’ of entertainment options that I spend my time thinking about or doing and this week is the Foods I Love to Cook. Since I’m on vacation, I don’t have time to do a full and proper post with pictures, so it will be a brief list to throw out some ideas and maybe I’ll update it in the future.

  1. Quiche (asparagus and pancetta)
  2. Salmon (with dill, rosemary and capers)
  3. Chocolate Cake (three layers with buttercream icing)
  4. Brisket (with a red wine based sauce)
  5. Whole Chicken (wrapped in pastry dough with herbs and stuffing)
  6. Brussel Sprouts (with olive oil, prosciutto, herbs and cranberries)
  7. Meat Loaf and Pommes Anna
  8. Bread stuffing (everything from scratch including the bread)
  9. Tilapia (baked in parchment paper with fresh vegetables)
  10. Soups (everything from leftovers of a meal)


All of these items are just the overall idea, but everything I cook is always different from the previous time. I also can’t follow recipes despite how rule-oriented and organized I am. I change an ingredient each time, rarely cooking the same thing over and over again. Wish I had more time to share recipes, ideas and pictures, but if you want to know anything more, I will happily share when I return. Oddly enough, these aren’t my favorite meals to eat. I tend to love raw foods, but I won’t ‘cook’ them myself as I worry about quality when I buy food, refrigeration and safety. I’ll leave that preparation to the experts. I also love desserts more than anything else, but I couldn’t possibly name all those, nor do I have time to cook them very often…



About Me & the “365 Daily Challenge”

I’m Jay and I live in NYC. By profession, I work in technology. By passion, I work in writing. I’ve always been a reader. And now I’m a daily blogger. I decided to start my own version of the “365 Daily Challenge” where since March 13, 2017, I’ve posted a characteristic either I currently embody or one I’d like to embody in the future. 365 days of reflection to discover who I am and what I want out of life.

The goal: Knowledge. Acceptance. Understanding. Optimization. Happiness. Help. For myself. For others. And if all else fails, humor. When I’m finished in one year, I hope to have more answers about the future and what I will do with the remainder of my life. All aspects to be considered. It’s not just about a career, hobbies, residence, activities, efforts, et al. It’s meant to be a comprehensive study and reflection from an ordinary man. Not a doctor. Not a therapist. Not a friend. Not an encyclopedia full of prior research. Just pure thought, a blogged journal with true honesty.

Join the fun and read a new post each day, or check out my book reviews, TV/Film reviews or favorite vacation spots.
