Sweet or Savoury?
« on: December 14, 2019, 20:49 »
It's a divisive issue I know, especially around the festive season, when there are suddenly extra goodies around.

I'm savoury every time.   I like chocolate, sweets and puds, but crisps, nuts and stuff like cheese is a bigger draw.

It is a tough call, but if you could only go to one end of the buffet table, which would it be?  :)

It is difficult one to answer.
Most days I'm on the savoury side, but occasionally I'll raid the freezer or cupboards for something (anything) that is sweet. If I can't find/or quickly bake something I'll have a really, really sweet cuppa tea just to scratch that itch  :blush:
So it would depend on what I felt like when I got to the buffet, in all honesty.

Probably sweet, because I always have savoury at home.     But I would look to see where the smallest queue was, and go there  :lol:    Mrs Bouquet

Husband says if he's peckish sweet, but if he's hungry savoury.
Eldest would start at one side of a cheese cake and stop when all the cakes were gone, youngest would take all the garlic/crusty bread and crisps with them.
Usually I'm savoury but occasionally the carrot cake calls me. LOUDLY and constantly until I give in just to stop it being noisy.

Savoury all the way and normally spicy too!

I love to buy unsalted peanuts and give them a proper seasoning with chilli flakes, paprika and anything else to hand and then roast them a bit.
Sadly I'm just hitting the age where my metabolism is slowing and the snacking is going to have to reduce a bit.

Sugar here is pretty well verboten, except with the addition of a little yeast now and then, so we stick to savoury nearly all the time!

Cheese figures highly for most of the time, and so does decent ham, but are eggs sweet or savoury?

No snacking  :ohmy:  Nah - just adapt the recipe.  I make popcorn, then drizzle a tiny bit of chilli oil over it and mix it up in a bowl.  It makes any other seasoning stick to it.  Lots less fat  :)

I've just remembered Twiglets.  I would dive on them, but never buy them at home  :wacko: 

but are eggs sweet or savoury?

Could be either Mr G.  A decent custard tart is a thing of beauty, but I like old fashioned devilled eggs as well.  I would never faff about making them at home, but would take one off a buffet table pdq  :lol:

When I get the sweet calling, I have some very small sticky toffee puddings in the pantry, they have a date stamp for about 50 years !   Pop one in the microwave for 40 seconds, and eat.    Every night after eating, I have a dark chocolate choc ice, they are in a Sainsbury box of eight and cost 1.10.    Also I have just two squares of Lidl very dark chocolate - this is medicinal, cocoa is very good for the circulation.    :)   Mrs B

Savoury for me every time, but with the occasional exceptions. When we visit our rellies in Oxfordshire, Jill does a spanking trifle and also a cream mixed with yoghurt and pineapples topped with brown sugar  :tongue2: or if I were in a restaurant and they had a raspberry and cream meringue. Other than that I'd rather have another starter instead.

Actually, Goosey, you hit on a substantive a correctness here...

When I was out in the wide world, trying to earn a crust on a daily basis, the inevitable 'business lunch' cropped up occasionally, and apart from a damn good sandwich in a bar somewhere, the act of going to a normal restaurant, and having just two starters was a great way to enjoy a prolonged discussion!

If two bottles arrived too, well, that meant that things evened out more than somewhat..;0)
