The best thing I had today
Sometimes there's only one thing that stands out in a meal or your daily food and drink experience and other than twittering it out it's hard to give it it's due. So, I thought why not a thread on just one thing? It could be just the appetizer in a meal, a cookie, amazing whiskey sour etc....but only one great thing.
To start off:
The Bacon and Egg Udon served at Harvest on Union. A rainy, dreary Fall day, and getting a bowl of Harvest's B and E Udon (brunch only) made my day. A rich, homemade broth with two perfectly poached free range eggs, a couple of strips of bacon on top and of course the noodles and a few greens thrown in.
All this while sitting in a cozy little shop. Man, was I happy!
Fresh beets cooked and chilled for a beet salad, fresh beet greens cooked with bacon and onion, served over jalapeno corn bread. All cooked by me! Best meal I have cooked this month.
Irish Stew, I made early afternoon. Just felt like one of those days, some hearty meaty thick tucker that stick to yer ribs :-D
I made a batch of sea salt caramels (regular fleur de sel inside, topped with sel gris). Oh god. I'm an absolute masochist when it comes to testing my own willpower.
