Just a List of Things I Have Actually Eaten During Quarantine

As the world went into lockdown, and we found ourselves confined to our homes, many of us turned to food as a source of comfort and entertainment. During this period of time, I have cooked and eaten a variety of interesting dishes, snacked on some delicious treats, and experimented with my culinary skills. Here’s a list of some memorable items that crossed my plate during quarantine:

1. Homemade sourdough bread – With the sudden boom in the popularity of baking bread at home, I joined the bandwagon and whipped up my fair share of sourdough loaves.

2. Banana bread – Another quarantine staple made an appearance as overripe bananas begged to be transformed into a comforting treat.

3. Dalgona coffee – Whipped coffee took over social media platforms, promising a frothy and caffeinated experience that I couldn’t resist trying.

4. Homemade pizza – Wanting to spice up our pizza nights, I experimented with different toppings, dough recipes, and sauces for a fantastic homemade feast.

5. One-pot pasta – Making the most out of limited ingredients, I combined pasta with various combinations of vegetables, proteins, and seasonings resulting in delightful dishes that were not only delicious but also easy to clean up after.

6. Baked feta pasta – As yet another viral dish caught my attention, I blended oven-roasted cherry tomatoes and feta cheese with pasta for a surprisingly tasty meal.

7. Charcuterie boards – A curated selection of cheeses, deli meats, fruits, nuts, crackers, and spreads made for visually appealing snacking platters that satisfied every craving.

8. Ramen – On lazy days or when craving some warmth and comfort in a bowl, ramen came to the rescue with its flavorful broth, noodles, and toppings.

9. Pancake cereal – A cute twist on a breakfast favorite included making bite-sized pancakes and consuming them like cereal with a drizzle of syrup and a splash of milk.

10. Homemade ice cream – Venturing into frozen delights, I experimented with making various flavors of ice cream, such as strawberry, chocolate, and even coffee.

11. Smoothie bowls – In an attempt to incorporate more fruits and vegetables into my diet, I blended colorful smoothies and topped them with granola, nuts, seeds, and fresh fruits.

12. Chickpea cookie dough – Seeking a healthy alternative for my sweet tooth, I discovered the joy of edible cookie dough made from chickpeas that was both nutritious and delicious.

This list barely scratches the surface of my culinary escapades during quarantine. It has been an interesting journey filled with delicious surprises as I discovered new flavors while also rediscovering comfort in familiar dishes. As we gradually return to post-quarantine life, I can’t help but wonder how many more culinary discoveries await us in the future.
