Okay, not to take away from the cupcake glory (smacks lips, dreams), my lunch today and a conversation at dinner last got me thinking about a subject to throw out to everyone.
We are all self confessed foodies, and with that comes a perilous balance of a love for really GREAT food and great tasting, incredibly low-brow food. I think Jean and I have mentioned our very odd love of White Castle sliders and so I wanted to know.. What is your "High" and what is your "Low" food loves? Do they vary by location? Can you go from eating one the night before to the other the next morning?
I'll give you a couple of examples...
High: Foie Gras at Barcelona
Low: White Castle Jalepeno Sliders
High: Rack of Lamb at Vincent's on Camelback (this includes the overdone, somewhat burnt trimmed pieces left at the end of the night that I used to snag as a starving, lowly pastry cook)
Low: Tacos at the Big Blue Burrito
High: Jeju isand mackeral sashimi, still kicking when it was brought to the table, any native beef or pork product.
Low: almost ANY junk food that doesn't have MSG in it and these jelly desserts they sell at the 7-11s with LARGE chunks of fresh, young coconut in them... Oh man...
Now it's your turn.. And if you are wondering, I had a peanut butter and hot pepper sandwich for lunch. :)
