Default My food IS better than yours!!

There, I've thrown down the gauntlet. Pshaw to your breakfast and avocado logs I say. Now, show me what you've got. What food, condiment, etc. is it exactly that you call delightful enough to wax poetic about?

Without question nor argument, at the top of my food list is something that makes my mouth water every time: PESTO SAUCE
What a wonderful thing it truely is. When placed on a chilled salad (it has to be a tad warm to truely be presented properly) it tastes so fine that I find myself literally gorging on something so mundane as greens? If one of those little leafy buggers escapes my lips I find myself snatching it off the table in the hope that my taste sensation tingles yet awhile longer. If you happen to be so sheltered that you have not tried PESTO SAUCE that is truley sad, and you are without hope my friend. This should be mandatory eating flavor for anyone that considers themselves rightful of an epicurean excursion of heaven. Do not dare to quibble with me about the fact that this wonderful edible product has a some parmegian cheese sprinkled in it either.

You can't touch that.

Are there any rules? Can I post more than 1 food item? Can Cookiepuss count as a food item?

My favorite thing right now is a sauce made of Ponzu, rice vinegar, and olek sambal chili paste. Stir fry heaven.

Yoon, you can do anything you like as far as I'm concerned. Cookiepuss included. But, just to humor me?us? and maybe create a livelier thread, it would probably be better to share one item at a time?

Sounds interesting but what do you stir fry in it? Anything you want? Maybe including a fav dish one uses their particular choice on would be a good idea.

Without question nor argument, at the top of my food list is something that makes me almost _____ when I taste it: PESTO SAUCE
.
Try Asian Pesto:

Try Asian Pesto Sauce, awesome on anything:

1 cup tightly packed cilantro
1/3 c. unsalted peanuts, pine nuts or macadamia nuts
1 small green chili, deseeded and coarsely chopped
1 clove garlic, chopped
1 tsp. freshly grated ginger
1 TB. Thai fish sauce
1 tsp. brown sugar
1/2 tsp. salt
1/3 c. peanut oil

Combine everything but oil in a blender or food processor. Slowly add the oil and mix until you have a smooth paste.

This is wonderful on shrimp, fish, or chicken with stir-fried veggies.

Today my IF lasted till I got home and I was clear headed, not lethargic at all in the afternoon though I was hungry at some times during the day. Not real bad though. This morning I got in a good solid workout before work, also road the bike for 15 minutes on break. So I'm becoming more convinced that 24 fasts are for me. I don't mind being hungry so much as having that lethargy that sets in in the afternoon.

Susie, that recipe looks great and I'll be sure to try it one of these days.

Menu: 14 oz blood rare new york steak, mixed greens, pesto, fish oil, cottage cheese, watermelon and artichoke hearts. Just over 2200 cals. I had to take a bit of breather midway through the steak and here it is in all its glory:

ugh, woke up at 3:30am and could not sleep again! Maybe I was a little dehydrated. At times I forget to drink water. Too bad we're not built to consume beer instead then I would never get dried out.

Anywho, coffee w/ cream, made it through work, came home and ate: steak, greens, mixed nuts, cottage cheese, artichokes, watermelon, pesto, fish oil, tortillas, goat milk and ice cream. Just over 2200 cals. Ought to be pretty charged up for weekend workouts after a good rest tonight. I'm wasted right now.
