Ok lets test this - What about half a case of new Bordeaux, a sack of fresh crusty french bread and half a cartwheel of perfect Brie on the beach near Normandy with friends starting at lunchtime to wait for the sunset ?
when i was newly married, my mother-in-law, a southern belle with mad hospitality skills, hosted a catfish fry and picnic. her father had a farm and he brought in some yellow watermelons (and some red ones) from his fields, and he and the menfolk spent all morning fishing in his lake and caught a fine mess of catfish.
she fried up all of that catfish, made homemade buttermilk biscuits and served them with honey, fresh coleslaw, iced tea and for dessert, there were those watermelons all frosty and sweet, and she made a trifle with bananas, vanilla pudding and ladyfingers and fresh cream. omgsh
they do it right in the south i have to say! yikes
I went to the Casino in Battle Creek Michigan, and ate at their Buffet. The food was excellent. They had everything you can imagine.
I had country fried pork steak, Mashed potatoes, and Mac-n cheese to start. I also had a kind of Lamb that was really good. After that, I did a little Chicken fried rice, A chicken dish, and a spring roll. I also had a couple slabs of the beef . all very good.
I was very full before I left. the only thing I didn't care for was the Cod. I mean they had everything, including 5 different kinds of deluxe Pizza, burgers and fries. fried chicken, baked chicken, and a several ethnic foods. Probably the best buffet I have been to.
That sounds great! ...Does it have meat in it, though? ..I don't like meat in meals very much....
The "best" meal I ever had, at that time depended on how hungry I was!
My family was moving to a different house and we had worked really hard all morning. We didn't even have the stove and other kitchen appliances moved. So my Mom used an electric skillet and made fried potatoes, opened a loaf of bread and a can of chili beans. Although I've eaten at what I deem some really good restaurants, that afternoon meal on moving day is still the best I ever had! Guess I was just so hungry!
Barcelona, 1970. Pechuga villa roi. Chicken breast stuffed with cream. Heaven on a plate. That was 1970 and there have been more heavens on plates since then, but this one, well, it was the first of my exotic experiences with food. Maybe you will find the recipe for it; I've looked since 1970 and had no luck. *sigh*
What is the best meal you ever had?Last year I went to a wedding that was a huge affair. It had at least 7 courses. I was in my glory. But I don't know if this tops the few times my husband and I splurged and went to...
