The single most sublime thing I ate was ______

The holiday season is in full swing, as they say, and the meals we have been eating are replete with all manner of sublime and divinely decadent pleasures ... :wink:

That said, what was the one food item which will mark Christmas 2004 for you tastewise? :rolleyes:

Does the memory of that taste still linger on your tongue?

the icky taste of boiled rutabaga...ack ack!

Do not expect INTJs to actually care about how you view them. They already know that they are arrogant bastards with a morbid sense of humor. Telling them the obvious accomplishes nothing.

for me: the simple pumpkin soup I made to accompany our Christmas dinner. :wub: amazing.

for my husband: the walnut-coated turkey medallions (with a wine cream sauce) which I made as the main course. Though he was impressed with the pumpkin soup, too.

Orange segments macerated in a Grand Marnier - vanilla bean - sugar syrup.

Gene Weingarten, writing in the Washington Post about online news stories and the accompanying readers' comments: "I basically like 'comments,' though they can seem a little jarring: spit-flecked rants that are appended to a product that at least tries for a measure of objectivity and dignity. It's as though when you order a sirloin steak, it comes with a side of maggots."

My sister made chicken wings with mushrooms. I know it sounds simple, but they were sublime. Served with a nice brown au jus that wasn't fatty, with nice plump button mushroom slices. I could have hoarded. Hmmmm, I think I DID hoard...

The Kobe beef fillet that just about melted in my mouth piece by luscious piece.

As my late father-in-law might have said....I've had gravy tougher than this meat! :laugh:

The flavor of that first bite of tender rare lamb with the garlic and fresh thyme/rosemary/mint after the creamiest asparagus bisque with tiny baby speartips resting in butter on the top. :wub:

Does that qualify as just one? :wink:

One woman very courteously approached me in a grocery store, saying, "Excuse me, but I must ask why you've brought your dog into the store." I told her that Grace is a service dog....

The bite of medium rare filet that was coated in spices and tons of minced garlic that had a hint of carmelized sweetness from slow roasting the beef.

Can you imagine how positively green with envy I am at these words??? :rolleyes: but make it rare, please .... :wink:

The trifle that I made out of a chocolate orange cake that looked ruined when it came out of the oven: the edges were burned and the center was still wobbly.

So I cut out the center and cut off the edges. Was left with a sort of donut shaped cake thing. Sliced it, soaked the slices in orange liqueur, and layered those with bananas and home made custard. Topped with loads of whipped cream.

It was the best trifle I ever made and maybe even one of the best desserts I ever made. Very christmassy taste and beautiful contrasting textures and flavors, yet very simple.
