    My wife and I celebrated 44 years of married life tonight. We’ve been celebrating our anniversary at Capital Grill since they opened on Long Island and had no intention of letting the dam virus stop us. My wife picked up dinner from Capital Grill while I got the Weber hot. Their butcher cut us 22oz bone in aged rib eye steaks and packed them with the herb butter and rub. I grilled the steaks on our Weber. She also brought home lobster bisque, mashed with skins, and grilled asparagus. 30 seconds in the microwave brought them back to temperature. Caesar salad went straight into salad plates. The bread basket went straight to our patio table. What a great dinner. I cleaned up and made cappuccino to go with Capital’s to die for chocolate chocolate chip cookies. I don’t count 10 dishes but it’s close enough for us.

    When I was a kid, I lived in the Bronx, just south of Riverdale. On the corner of the street leading onto Broadway, there was a green colored building with forklifts constantly loading and unloading. Turns out, it was the Zenobia Nut Company (I later discovered). That didn't mean much to me back then, because Planters sold pistachios (they were the Turkish ones). When they changed over to California nuts, I was disappointed. Years later, when I had moved, I discovered Zenobia nuts. . .

    Sorry, I got nothing

    In my old age I dont really care much about food. Given a choice between a big fancy meal and a PBJ, the PBJ is likely to win out

    I don't know about 10, but here are the highlights I remember:

    1- One day when I was very young, perhaps 6 or 7, and my mother made breaded veal. We never had it again, and I probably asked her for it 3 dozen times.

    2- When I was about 16 or 17, on a school sports trip to a track meet in Moscow, ID (I came in 2nd to last in Long Distance Running). We stopped at a Pizza joint called Black Forest Pizza. All the Pizza there had ingredients that would be more appropriate at a German Schnitzelhaus, including Sauerkraut, which I hated (at the time). I scanned the menu looking for ANY pie that did not have Sauerkraut. Found one and ordered a personal size. To my grand disappointment, it had Sauerkraut on it. I ate it anyway. It was delicious.

    3- When I was ~20 years old, taking the bus to various locales applying for jobs. I was asking at shops in the Eastgate Mall in Bellevue WA and got hungry. "I've never tried Indian food", I said to myself, so at the Indian counter in the food court I ordered some Tandoor Chicken and a Hummus plate with Naan. Oh. Em. Gee.

    4- When I was ~35 or so, a lady I worked with from Singapore told me I "had to try this". Green Papaya slices dipped in Red Pepper flakes and Salt. The tart, sweet, and crunch of the not-yet-ripe Papaya mixed with the Salt and the Red Pepper heat made the most interesting flavor/texture combination I've ever had in my mouth. Instant fan.

    wow! that's quite a list of exquisiteness. BEAST! no really, all of that goes on the bucket list.

    I 'm working on a pinto bean and lentil crock pot recipe for the Dr Strange Cook book.
    I got 3 lbs. of pork shoulder trimmed it, seperated the most meaty pieces from the most bacon like pieces , micro waved the meaty leaving it every juicey but completely cooked put the becon stuff in a low heat frying pan and slowly gave it a turn of five ,
    drained all the grease, spread it out added salt and granulated garlic,
    The lentils and beans are soaking over night .
    I need to free some freezer orphans boned skinless chicken thighs, and make a broth plus chicken bits
    .
    add the brothy chicken bits, faux bacon, pork pieces and lentils, beans, yellow onion, celery canned tomatoes, and carrots fresh garlic into the crock pot set it for 8 hours and forget about it. at hour 7 add a slash of vinegar, black pepper, cumin, crushed red pepper, organo bay leaves, easy on the herbs as to leave the initial favors in tact.
    the results ( road kill deluxe) over quinoa and slices of sweet french bread sliced thick for dipping in the road kill deluxe juices .

    hmmmm it's really hard to screw up the taste of a crock pot meal, :twisted: but I'll see.

    I weigh in 123 lbs wet out of the shower, the biggest food de-lite I enjoy is a grilled cheese these days.

    my own recipe

    grilled smoked bacon cheddar cheese sandwich with garlic butter and crushed peppercorns.

    I gained 3 lbs just reading this :)

    It's the places and the company as much as the food, I think.

    A smoked meat sandwich at Schwartz's Deli on St. Laurent in Montreal.

    The fried breakfast at the Black Bull Inn in Coniston in the English Lake District (after a few pints of their famous beers the night before).

    The Lamb Vindaloo at Nirvana in midtown NYC.

    A lobster roll at the Grand Banker in Lunenburg, Nova Scotia.

    The shrimp with chlli peppers, garlic and olive oil at The Garlic Queen in Amsterdam.

    A Pasta all'Amatriciana that I had in Rome - I don't remember the name of the restaurant.

    A baguette or croissant from just about any Parisian boulangerie.

    A dozen fresh Green Gables oysters from PEI, Canada

    A Napoleon (flaky pastry and vanilla cream) from La Marquisienne, a French patisserie in Papeete.

    My mother's fried fish, chips and mushy peas in Liverpool, England.​

    And many more but I'm starting to drool all over my keyboard.
