What's the best thing you ate today?

I've been staying with my sister at a hotel in NY for the past few months. We love the food and have been eating out almost exclusively, for almost all meals except for moat breakfasts (instant oqtmeal or cereal and fruit in our room) and some lunches when we use the inexpensive sandwich maker we bought for grilled cheese etc. But dinners..we eat those out. Or rely on takeout. Or prepackage salads etc. We wee missing some basic home cooked food. We like steamed veggies, rice, simple fare.

So today we finally bought a Aroma rice cooker-steamer. Made fluffy Basmati rice and some fresh steamed veggies like broccoli, zucchini, carrots etc. Tossed some cubed tofu into the rice while it wws cooking, sprinkled on so me parmesaan for serving. Had some fresh bread along side. Best meal of the day.

So what was YOUR tastiest meal or snack today, or this week, that you just closed your eyes and said 'ahhhh....'?

          Ooh I could go for one of those right now. With an Espresso.

        2. Sick in bed with the flu so no cooking going on but, happily, there was some cold leftover malai kofta in the fridge. That and cold Diet Pepsi got me through the day.

          1. I didn't eat anything delicious today. :( A sandwich from Zoe's Kitchen and left over chili. Blah.

            1. Tender veal stew over noodles, pumpkin pound cake, and one Haagen-DazsĀ® Vanilla Milk Chocolate Almond Ice Cream Bar. All very nice, and all today.
