Best thing I ever ate....

Seth and I are addicted to The Food Network.  Again, as with our dog on a diet, it would stand to reason that if we love to eat we would love an entire network devoted to eating.  So they have this show named something similar to the title of this post.  We are watching Ace of Cakes as we speak and a commercial for the show comes on.  Seth asks me what the best thing I ever ate was and I am floored by the fact that I cannot seem to come up with what it is.  Since I do much of my eating with him I told him to tell me what his was so that maybe it would trigger mine.  He goes into a dissertation on some tempura we had at Bluepoint on our anniversary one year.  I remember the entire meal quite well.  The tempura however did not leave enough of a mark on my palate to title it the best thing I ever ate.

Now here I sit racking my brain over this when I should be going to bed (even though part of me wants to stay up late(er) due to the possible snow day I am PRAYING will happen tomorrow). I have a major love affair with seafood so I am trying to think along those lines.  But, I can throw back meat and potatoes pretty well too. I am just shocked I can't think of even a possible contender.

Since I can't seem to let this go, I am asking if you read this blog that you comment with the best thing you ever ate.  Maybe your ideas will clue me in.

Um, and just to really call myself out in the eating department, Seth and I are attempting to do Weight Watchers together.  I recently found a blog called "Ah...Me So Hongry! Misadventures of a Weight Watchers Repeat Offender". THAT IS ME.  She is so funny by the way.  You should totally check it out (see mommy blogs to the right).  At any rate, we have been going strong since Monday.  I am so proud of us.  And I'm starving.  You can't win 'em all though.


  1. Awww...thanks for giving me a shout out! So you guys started WW. I remember it being rough at first because I was thinking about all of the things I can't have. But I soon learned that WW is not about what you can't have, it's about having what you want in moderation. BUT, I know me and I know there are trigger foods that will set me off. So, some foods are OUT, like cool whip. I will eat a whole bowl of cool whip in 2 days.

    Good luck and thanks for stopping by Me So Hongry and following.

  2. That is SO hard to think of! I have an easier time thinking in categories like the show does. "The best thing I ever ate--BBQ" or "chocolate" or pasta, beef, seafood, etc. I'm getting very hungry....

  3. So I'm with you Jana, I love to eat but can't think of my favorite meal. I do know Skip's favorite meal which was a bone-in-ribeye steak in Las Vegas. I just asked Skip about his to see if I was right and he agreed. He then proceeded to list 2 other meals. I'm still thinking about mine.

  4. When we were in Paris, my husband and I stumbled upon a small bakery near the Centre Pompidou. We stopped to admire the display of eclairs in the window. They looked so good we decided to get a couple. We bought a chocolate and a banana eclair. They were both the best things I've ever eaten.

    Everything I ate in Paris was the best thing I've ever eaten... Someday I will go back.

    Good luck with WW. I've been pondering trying it, too.

  5. I bet guys have a much easier time with this question than we do. Shorter memories, maybe?

  6. Jana,
    I am doing weight watchers too. Do you know about the vitalicious frozen double chocolate muffin tops for one point, becasue they are awesome!!

  7. Your blog keeps getting better and better! Your older articles are not as good as newer ones you have a lot more creativity and originality now keep it up!

  8. Hands down the best thing I've ever eaten was at a restaurant in St. Helena, California called Martini House. Corey and I had a Mushroom tasting consisting of several small dishes...the last dish was so mouthwatering I still have dreams about it and we ate it in October 2008!!! It was a Hen of the Woods Mushroom on a bed of wild mushroom risotto, good grief it was AMAZING!!! ;)
