The Food Of Love List

I was trying to decide all day how to do the Love List today. Shall I do places I love? Shall I do people I love? What about this? Or that?

But the lovely and talented Meg, creator of the Love List, decided for me.


I love:

  • Fire-roasted tomato soup followed by the goat cheese and pine nut salad from here
  • Rare roast beef, with onions and tomatoes
  • Half-price burger night at the Olney Ale House, especially the BBQ Burger
  • Milkshakes. Yes, even McDonald's milkshakes
  • Potato chips. Oh God, potato chips!
  • Twix!
  • Fresh, homegrown tomatoes, sprinkled with salt
  • Fried green tomatoes
  • Steamed blue crabs (yes, Bev, with Old Bay!)
  • Sweet white corn on the cob
  • Frozen custard
  • Matsumoto shave ice
  • Azuki bean ice cream
  • Cherry Garcia ice cream
  • Butter Pecan (or, as we say in our fambly, Buttery Khan (KHAAAANNNN!) ice cream)
  • Vanilla ice cream, with Girl Scout Thin Mint cookies crushed on top
  • Meringue cookies
  • Cream soda
  • A well-made Mojito
  • Fried chicken
  • Baked potatoes
  • Macaroni and cheese
  • St. Andre cheese
  • Hummus and pita chips from here
  • My Gramma's pumpkin pie, with real whipped cream
  • My mother's Chocolate Angel Pie
  • Thanksgiving dinner -- whatever that entails, as long as there's roast turkey
  • Whoppers
  • Steamed spiced shrimp, with cocktail sauce
  • Oysters on the half shell, preferably with a mignonette sauce as opposed to cocktail sauce
  • Blueberries
  • Crisp apples
  • Yogurt raisins
  • Filet mignon! With horseradish sauce! And a baked potato with butter!
  • Coffee, coffee, and coffee.
  • And Gingerbread Lattes.

I could go on and on, but for some odd reason, I'm hungry.
