Being of the gluten-free persuasion, I’m not one for a whole lot of carbohydrate consumption.
Don’t get me wrong, I love carbs. It’s just that whenever I cook up pasta or pizza for the rest of the tribe, I’m more likely to go without than to substitute with something that basically equates to the nutritional equivalent of eating sugar (good, whole-grains such as quinoa excluded). If I’m going to eat sugar, give me chocolate please.
I am far from virtuous on the carb front, however. I have my weaknesses.
In winter, it’s so, so easy to seek comfort and solace in tasty carbs. Especially when they come in the form of baked kipfler potatoes and served with a tender eye fillet steak and a full-bodied, cheeky shiraz.
Mr SY whipped this batch up last weekend, sprinkling them with rosemary from the garden. He goes ok. He does.
Mind you, don’t think there’ll be much on the home-cooked menu this weekend. Man Flu has arrived in the SY household. It’s not pretty, Stylers. Not pretty at all.
Does winter equal carbs for you? What’s your fave way to get a fix?
