I'm not a foodie. I'm not a foodie. I'm not a foodie.

Click at the links below to visit two great websites with photos of what foodies like the most. FOOD.

But... am I really a foodie?
I know I'm definiely not a gourmand. (gourmand is a person who takes great pleasure in food; a person given to excess in the consumption of food and drink; a greedy or ravenous eater.- from Wikipedia)
So, yeah... Maybe I'm a foodie... But it is almost exactly the same as gourmand. The difference may be the sound of this word. A bit immature, infantile... like this one--

Yeah... I think that foodies have a different attitude towards food in terms of feelings. For them it's like experiencing childhood again durig consumption of their favourite dishes.
What's my favourite dish?
Hard to say ;)
I'm definitely a big fan of spanish and italian cuisine. I love all kinds of pasta and tortilla, I like paella, 
fresh vegetables from a market in the heart of Barcelona... 
pizza with zucchini sold in pieces near railway station in Rome... ;)
It's actually funny, that when I think about these goodies, I can smell their mouthwatering aroma. 
And I immediately become hungry :)

Let's change the subject. The pics You can see at the top of the post show the effect of my attempt to cook something healthy, good looking and edible. My problem is that I can almost never combine those three features in one meal. So this time my dish was good looking and edible. Not bad.
In fact I forgot to do shopping, so I had to use random, but edible components from the fridge and shelves.
I made two dishes: 1.pasta with sauce and meatballs, 2.spicy chinese vegetables (not photographed).
I felt real relief that no one from my family got sick.
Not that I'm a terrible cook or something. 
It's just that I'm better at taking pictures of food than at preparing it myself ;)

So- am I a foodie- a person with a special interest in or knowledge of food (Wikipedia)?

I don't think so.
