Simplicity

I really appreciated Dana Velden's post on The Kitchn about simple, everyday foods that get shunned from the food blogosphere. She writes:


Blogging about food is a tricky thing sometimes. In order for something to be post-worthy, it's usually a pretty wonderful and delicious thing to eat. Or, if it's not, then there has to be some kind of story about that. Or it could be a new discovery. Or have some meaning in our lives and culture. But we seldom write about ordinary, everyday food or eating. We don't sit down at the table to an ordinary PB&J lunch, and then move over to the computer and blog about it.


Isn't that true? Some foods are too ordinary to bother mentioning, but they really make up the fabric of our everyday lives.


What is your favourite 'boring' food to enjoy?
