I hate year-end lists... so here's mine.
Top Ten Foodish Experiences of 2007
1. MJ and I moving the dining room table into the dining room! (Go figure, but it's the little things that make so much difference...)
2. Eating two full meals at two competing bowling alleys within thirty-minutes of one another as a taste-testing mission with Aaron Henkin.
3. Having Tom Boram and Dan Breen make Rice Krispy / bacon / licorice / garlic treats for the kids while jamming broken-down synth beats in my kitchen.
4. Cabeca Gorda! (The restaurant so secret, I shouldn't even be putting it on this list.)
5. Discovering Vegetarian Jerky Substitute. Because every vegetarian needs an all-natural jerky substitute.
6. Judging afternoon beers at the One World Cafe. As the guy next to me said: "Tough job."
7. Falling madly in love with the avacado.
8. Afghan food at The Helmand with Jenny and Dwight. Almost makes me want to take a vacation to Afghanistan... er... on second thought...
9. $100 lunch for two at Minato courtesy of B.M. (Thanks, buddy...)
10. Starting this blog.
