What's the most delicious thing you've eaten today (2005)

Recommended Posts

For breakfast: hot cous cous with milk, butter, cream, cinnamon, and dried cherries. Inspired by Deborah Madison's recipe for breakfast cous cous in "The Savory Way." Her recipe called for prunes.

Deliciousness has escaped me for most of the week. But last night my husband treated me to a new seafood restaurant specializing in grilled and barbecued fish. For an appetizer he ordered this gogoso, which is sticky rice stuffed with a spicy fish concoction, wrapped and steamed in banana leaves then grilled over hot coals. Very delicious!

Browned tourneed potatoes with caramelized onions, and scrambled eggs with cheddar. Simple, but cooked correctly and tasting just like what it is. Delicious.

today: a lovely pastrami sandwich on rye from an old German restaurant that's been around since the '30s (the restaurant -- not the pastrami!) and some pickled tomatoes (never had them before) that were on the table as part of the spread.

tonight: my friend elizabeth is making a bolognese sauce with cavatelli, which i'm fairly certain is going to kick ass because she's a wonderful cook.

that doesn't sound weird at all -- that sounds great! actually, there's a good little pizza place in NYC (actually, there are two of them: one in manhattan, one in brooklyn) named Two Boots that does a really good calamari pizza.

Yesterday in Buffalo. Beef on Weck. Thin sliced rare roast beef with rolls sprinkled with caraway and salt spread with horseradish and dipped in au jus. I love French dip sandwiches but these are better Buffalo is the only place I know where they have kimmelwick rolls. These were homemade but it seems like every restaurant in Buffalo serves them.

Last night - two utterly perfect Malapeque oysters with just a squeeze of lemon, washed down with half a glass of Napa Wine Company Sauvignon Blanc. Greater than the sum of its parts. The briny oysters and the citrus-y wine were perfect together.

Yesterday - egg noodles tossed with butter, some grated 4 yr. old cheddar & the remains of a wedge of cambozola, 4 oz diced smoked pork shoulder, some sherry, asparagus, and lots of black pepper. Yay for bowl food. Really good, though I says it as shouldn't.
