What food are you grateful for?
My grandma's green bean chutney in a cheese sandwich made with a white bloomer and nice mature cheddar cheese.
OMG I can taste it in my mind now! My mum makes it now that grandma is dead, but it's not the same...
I found that most people don't cook brussell sprouts correctly nor do they select them with any care. A friend of mine is a chef in one of the local foodie restaurants and secretly served me a dish with brussel sprouts in it. It was great and I was surprised by the secret ingredient.
I found out browned butter, and roasting with garlic is fantastic. We have a restaurant in town that has brussel sprouts as their signature item, served many different ways
give us this day our daily BIGMAC!
for those that dont know--i used to be Bigmac on here till the site got reincarnated.
I am grateful that I can eat.
A bushel of steamed blue crabs, steamed in beer until they turn red and seasoned with Old Bay seasoning. Then dump out on a table covered in newspaper and crack the exoskeleton with wooden mallets to get to the meat inside. Ignore the dead eyes "looking" at you.
It's a slow process, so drink more beer. After a couple of hours when you're still hungry, start in on the hot buttered corn on the cob.
You could starve to death cracking crabs. It's about the social event.
Curried chicken and potatoes wrapped in a roti.
Breadfruit, salted beef and spinach cooked slowly in coconut milk with curry, turmeric, garlic, pepper, onion, thyme and other spices.
Peanut sugar cake - roasted peanuts held together by a hardened syrup made with brown sugar, coconut milk and ginger.
Boneless, flaked, smoked herring seasoned with garlic, onion and olive oil and sandwiched in a hot bake.
Asham - roasted corn ground to a powder together with sugar and salt to make a sweet confectionary powder.
Creme brulée - my absolute favorite
Beans and cornbread (without which I would not have grown straight and tall - not literally)
Greens - creamed spinach, turnip greens, mustard greens, collard greens
Chilli - I put it on everything!
Except chocolate, my other favourite food...
