Since Sherri’s blog yesterday started off our week with a smile, I thought I’d keep the trend going and add to my recent “Favorites” theme–since things we love bring smiles. This week let’s talk about foods.
It’s almost impossible for me keep a list of my favorite foods down to a minimum because I pretty much love everything. In fact, there’s only one food I really don’t like: Brussell sprouts. Figures that the one thing I don’t care to eat has like zero calories! But other than Brussell sprouts…I’m in. Yet how to narrow down my choices to just a few favorites? Ooooh, the dilemna! But after much thought, here’s my list of my top three favorite foods:
In third place–shrimp scampi. I love shrimp, I love garlic, I love butter. Put them all together and you can’t miss. Toss the scampi over pasta and I’m in heaven.
In second place–lobster. And I mean the whole lobster–not just the tail. I don’t cook lobsters very often–they’re very pricey where I live–but it’s always a feast when we indulge.
And claiming the number one spot on my list of favorite foods: linguini and clam sauce.
I swear I could eat this for dinner every night. I love the delicate flavor of fresh clams, and combined with the garlic and olive oil, parsley and hint of lemon…mama mia. When we lived near Costco I would pick up a bag of fresh clams every Friday at their seafood roadshow and make linguini and clam sauce. I can still get clams where we live now, but they’re much more expensive. I miss my Costco!
So how about you? What are your top three favorite foods? Do you make them yourself or prefer to eat them at a restaurant? Hope your week is off to a good start!
