Ten Foods I Love...

Ten Foods I Love...

In no certain order...

Cake...chocolate, red velvet, devil's food, it doesn't matter. Ohhhh...I just remembered Tres Leche cake. (Swoon.)

Homemade Sour Dough Rolls - my grandmother used to make the best rolls. She kept starter in the fridge. These were so good, we'd almost fight over 'em when they came out of oven.

Chicken and Dumplings - in the winter...YUM! Mom makes excellent Chicken and Dumplings.  I make 'em even better. :-)

Chocolate Chip Cookies - right from the oven while the chocolate is still melty.

Barbeque - Chicken, brisket, ribs, burgers...doesn't matter. And yes, you have to lick your fingers.

Corn on the Cob - fresh from the field, hot with lots of melting butter and sea salt.

Texas Baked Potatoes - baked in fire pit all day, then add lots of butter, cheese, chopped brisket...and whatever else you want.Even a little barbeque sauce.

Chocolate anything - Cake, pie, cookies, candy, ice cream. It's all good.  Milk chocolate, dark chocolate, mint chocolate. There's no such thing as too much chocolate. :-)

Granny Smith Apples - Yes, I know it's green but so are some m&ms. Cold and tart, these are great on a hot summer day.

Nutella - I'm not sure this qualifies as a food but it sure is good.  Chocolate and hazelnut.  I love this on whole grain toast.

What about you?  What are some of your favorite foods?

Is it 10 Tuesday already? Food? Well, I don't get too excited about food in any shape, form or taste.
Haven't had one in years but donuts always top my list.
Fruit-flavored yogurt - could eat it every day and practically do.
Most any kind of fruit - once lived in an apartment that had a papaya tree in the yard.
Bananas are near the top of my list.
Chocolate - those bite-sized pieces of Dove chocolate.
I think spinach enchiladas hit the spot.
Pecan pie - my husband baked his first-ever just a day or so ago.
Do you know how long it's taking me to come up with this many foods?

It was hard to come up with ten for me too. I mean, some things, like the sour dough rolls, I hadn't thought of in years.

And the corn on the cob probably wouldn't have made the list except I had some the other night and it was wonderful. :-)

Rodeo concession stands usually have the standard fare, but we used to run barrels at a little podunk arena in the middle of nowheresville where the concession stand specialty was giant, foil-wrapped, slow-cooked, baked potatoes, and they had all the fixins available.

Thanks for your post, which sparked a truly fond memory.
