December 26 Soul food. What did you eat this year that you will never forget? What went into your mouth & touched your soul? (Prompt by @mysticflavor)
This is a bad thing to ask me this year. Especially after my first Christmas (and Thanksgiving and Halloween) where I have had to stay away from things I normally love. There have been no butter tarts, no mini Wonderbars, no turkey (stupid pre-stuffed birds), no nothing that I love.
So, to think about what food I have eaten that I have loved?
Meh. If it doesn't have gluten, I'm not interested.
I'm not like many other people I know who love food. I mean, don't get me wrong, I didn't get to be "hefty" by not loving food, but I'm no connoisseur. I like plain. I like boring. I like un-fancy. I don't like things I don't recognize or things I get served to me at high end restaurants. If I'm offered poutine made of: 1) handcut fries, goat cheese and duck gravy, or 2) Burger King fries, gummy cheese curds, and unknown substance gravy; I will choose the Burger King any day.
I also prefer $2 chocolate Easter bunnies from Wal-Mart.
I'm a girl of simple tastes. Or is that bad tastes?
This year, if you ask what I remember most of the food I've eaten... I guess I would have to say the roasted chicken from Ukraine.
But that might be because I ate it almost every meal for the entire 2 weeks.
It was still good.
