THE single best thing to eat

  • b

OK, there you are, standing in front of God and the question is simple: What is the best thing to eat?
You should not even have to think about the answer.
Talk to me.

        Amen. Ablosutely no question. Came across a preparation the other day that I'm definitely going to have to try this winter. Fresh foie gras soaked in Sauternes then enrobed in Smithfield ham and wrapped in puff pastry and deep fried. Gotta have it.

        In second place crispy sweetbreads.

          Too bad it is banned/soon to be banned in many areas of the country

          1. Glazed old-fashioned donut from K's Donut Emporium at Beverly Glen and Ventura. Nope, not refined, just good ole fat and sugar fried up.

            1. Second only to my wife, would be raw oysters at Acme Oyster House in New Orleans.

                She lets you put a dab of horseradish on her? Now that's a woman!

                  If my husband wrote that about me, there would be *great* rewards for him, which I'm not gonna describe here. Heehee!!

                3. White peach ice cream my grandfather used to make. No question about it.

                    I don't actually know you or your grandfather but I think I'm going with that too.

                      It's probably been 30 years since he cranked the final batch. The peach trees are still there, but the old man and his Guernseys are long gone. The next best thing would be the wild pineapples growing along the FEC railroad tracks in Ft. Pierce, FL. Sweeter than found money.

                        Thanx for that. Now I have a way to place my longing for what I didn't have! But sign me up for a pineapple trip.
