Anything and everything - veggies, burgers, chicken, you name it. Pizza on the grill is especially nice.
These are all excellent suggestions - thank you, everyone!
Korovka, I thought I was the only person who couldn't have plain cooked eggs. I'm so glad to know that I am not alone!
Either the scene when Pete waxes poetic about the sour cream and onion dip he had at a party, because my family always had sour cream and onion dip once a year for the Super Bowl (and when I moved out and discovered I could make it for myself any time I wanted, it was a REVELATION) - OR the scene when Don invites Roger over for dinner and Betty only has two steaks, so she has to eat salad while the boys chow down, because my husband once invited his parents over for dinner after I had bought only enough meat to feed the people whom we already invited.
Not by itself, no, but with some Korean barbecue? Hell yes.
The Henckels santoku that my husband got me for my birthday. LOVE IT.
Bacon. Bacon makes everything better.
Absolutely bacon...or prosciutto...or jamon serrano. Any of those are all right with me!
For me, it's eggs. I can't stand the look or smell of plain cooked eggs. One morning when I was in fifth grade, I had a scrambled egg with cheese for breakfast - kind of like a low-rent omelet. Later that day, I got violently ill, and in my brain, "cooked eggs" are now forever linked to "super barf time."
It's gotten better over time, but I can't eat things that are too "eggy". French toast has to be well done, for example. Quiche is right out. I can't enjoy frittata or strata and I always ask for pad Thai without egg. If the husband wants eggs for breakfast, he has to cook them his own damn self.
It's also unhelpful to me when people suggest egg dishes as fast dinner ideas. Someday I should put together a cookbook of super fast non-egg dinners.
Pretty much any kind of chocolate bar is fine with me!
London broil. It's great marinated and grilled, it's great pan-seared on the stovetop and sliced against the grain, and it makes delicious beef jerky.
Superbacon from the farmer's market. It's a revelation.
Either by itself, or as part of a post-Thanksgiving antipasto sandwich with roasted red peppers and fresh mozzarella on a squishy bun. Yummm.
Homemade vanilla ice cream with fresh eggs and local, pasteurized (not ultra-pasteurized) cream. SO AMAZING.
Anything with dark chocolate and caramel. I never liked dark chocolate before, but it goes with gooey sweet caramel so well that it's ridiculous.
I just made pickles for the first time last week. They're AWESOME!
Black raspberries from my backyard. Yum!
Every time I go to Lucile's Cafe in Denver or Boulder...their praline waffle is absolutely amazing, and the beignets are top-notch.
Garlic ice cream, at the Stinking Rose restaurant in LA. They serve it with a caramel chocolate sauce...it's delicious.
Grilled pizza. SO GOOD.
I'm with Jujyfruit - give me as much jamon serrano as I can eat and I'm a happy girl.
Anything cupcake. I know they're overdone, but I love making cupcakes for people for all kinds of occasions.
Soda bread, if I can get it together enough to make some this week.
I confess - we don't have TV, so we go to the bar to watch the games, and they're usually hockey. Still, I like anything deep fried (especially cheese sticks) - the playoffs only come once a year and I'm going to enjoy them!
Love. Tessaro's. I'm so glad you were able to make it there.
I like their burgers with creamy blue cheese. Also I get the broccoli and cauliflower on the side - it makes me feel slightly virtuous after eating the giant burger.
The first time The Husband fried up some of the thick-cut bacon that I bought at the farmer's market. It was a revelation.
