Good Food Friday... My Favorites.


I decided to do something a little different this week. For those of you who care :) I thought I'd share with you some of my favorite foods. So, here they are.

In no particular order....

  • Spanakopita
  • Eggplant Parmagiana
  • Anything with Balsamic Vinegar
  • Margherita Pizza
  • Just about anything Greek or Lebanese
  • Tiramisu
  • Creme Brulee'
  • Peach Pie or cobbler
  • Bread
  • Hummus
  • Baba Ganouj
  • Guacamole
  • Roasted Chicken
  • Asparagus
  • Any and all cheese (except Limberger- I can't get past the smell)
  • Whole grain Waffles or pancakes
  • Quiche
  • Sushi
  • Italian Biscuitine cookies (coffee and orange flavored delights!)
  • Raspberry Panda Licorice
  • Any Berry
  • Any Pasta
  • Fish of all types

...just to name a few.

One day on TV I heard someone talking about their last meal. Meaning, a meal so good that you could eat it and your life would be complete..the perfect meal. I thought long and hard about this because frankly, I love food. I love to try new things. I'm not picky at all. I thought "well, I could eat anything and be happy" but, after some serious thought...this is what I came up with.

Perfectly Grilled salmon with a hoisin glaze, Roasted asparagus with olive oil and toasted sesame seeds, A baked sweet potato with butter and maple syrup, some nice crusty whole grain bread....and to top it all off a piece of tiramisu or any other decadent dessert and a frothy cappuccino flavored with hazelnut. mmmm....

Ok. I'm done drooling. How about you...what would be your perfect meal? Tell me please, I'd love to know. :)

I'm going to have to really think about that question!

We have a lot of the same favorite foods... except the fish thing. I like some, even a lot, but not all kinds. Ask my mom about her Cod story sometime....

seriously? I had to look some of that stuff up! You're going to have come cook at my house!

Favorite meal: Ribeye on the grill, baked potato w/ butter and sour cream, steamed broccoli (w/ butter!), corn on the cob (need I mention the butter?) and homemade apple pie with Breyer's Vanilla ice cream on top

the apple pie with ice cream sounds good right about now. :)
