What are your favourite indulgences?
I have many. Too many to list, probably. It could be argued that everything I eat's a bit indulgent, actually, seeing as I don't bother to eat anything unless I love it. I get downright stroppy* if I'm in a situation where the only food on offer is rubbish, leading to a handbag that more often than not has a banana or a Kind bar or a Larabar in it.
I think, though, that to be a true indulgence it has to be something a little extra - something that you don't need, but you really want. For example, I wouldn't count a cheese board, because usually I'm only eating a cheese board as part of a meal (or even the whole meal itself, if it's summer and I'm being lazy). But chocolate - that's always an indulgence. And wine. And frozen yoghurt. Most sweet treats are, actually.
I don't try to resist indulgences**, which has naturally led to a situation where I don't often feel the need to indulge. When I do, though, I do it well (if I do say so myself). Those little bits of goodness are like the accessories of the food world. Sometimes simple is best, and other times you just want to go all out, but no matter what, they make everything more fun.
*The first time I heard the word hangry left me with nothing so much as a feeling of relief that I wasn't the only one who totally loses their cool when they're in need of sustenance.
**I used to, and it never worked, and eventually I stopped being totally horrible to myself and - surprise! - realised how much I genuinely loved food.
