These are a few of The Girl’s favorite foods

Meet The Girl

Well. I received one comment about what your kids eat. Thank-you, Jim. I’m hoping to get more. To inspire you, take a boo at The Girl’s Top 20.

  1. Bacon, because everything goes better with bacon for The Girl, too.
  2. Buttermilk pancakes with maple syrup.
  3. Bread, any kind, toasted and preferably with butter, but peanut butter in a pinch.
  4. Carrots. Lots and lots of carrots. Raw only.
  5. Caesar salad, but no anchovies and go easy on the garlic.
  6. Cherries, dark red and firm, not the yellow Rainiers.
  7. Chicken tikka and naan from Indian Oven.
  8. Eggs, always as an omelet (but only with free-range eggs from Maple Hill Farms because the yolk is almost orange), made with olive oil and preferably accompanied by bacon.
  9. Grilled cheddar cheese on sourdough, with the bread buttered on the outside before going on the grill.
  10. Hot dogs, all-beef, with mayo in a whole-wheat bun
  11. Hamburgers, although only with ground beef from Hopcott Meats.
  12. Lamb chops, double-loin and barbecued.
  13. Long Bread (The Girl used this word as a toddler to describe a baguette, and it stuck), toasted, then painted with olive oil and sprinkled with sea salt.
  14. Mandarin oranges, two at a time, but the skin can’t be leathery.
  15. Milk, always whole and almost always with homemade chocolate syrup.
  16. Quinoa that’s been simmered, tossed with olive oil and soy sauce then baked in oven.
  17. Pineapple, which has to be ripe, but not too ripe.
  18. Tuna salad on rye with mayo, hold the pickle.
  19. See’s Candies Scotchmallows.
  20. Yogurt, whole milk only, spooned over granola made with spelt, kamut, rice and rye flakes, plus shaved coconut and honey), with bittersweet chocolate disks tossed in.

Now it’s your turn. What are your kids’ favorite foods?

  1. I am not literally a kid, but definitely a kid at heart. Here are a few of my fav’s in no particular order

    1. Sweet summer nectarines, firm to the bite. These mean summer to me.
    2. Pasta, pasta, pasta. All kinds. Screw the South Beach Diet. I love my carbs.
    3. Bread. Warm and fresh with butter. For toast and sandwiches. See number 2.
    4. Hamburgers made with fresh ground sirloin and only cooked to medium. Must be in a good bun.
    5. Tuna sashimi with avocado and seaweed – just a touch of hot sauce and soy. MMMMM melts in your mouth.
    6. Cheese . . . melted, smelly, in salads and on crackers oh and on hamburgers in number 4 . .. and don’t forget the sheep feta from Kalmata Grocery store.
    7. Olives again from Kalmata. I like the sun dried kind. You can’t make a dirty martini without olives, and you need olive oil for my pasta.
    8. Ribs all kinds served right off the grill, especially the prime rib bones from my favorite restaurant Notable. Come and visit and I will take you there. Fresh, local foods from chef Michael Nobel.
    9. Cherries firm and juicy in the summer and morello cherry jam any other time.
    10. Cherry tomatoes from my own plants. Delicious when they burst in your mouth. They actually smell and taste like the tomatoes from my childhood and not those baseballs from the regular grocery store.
    11. Anything my mother makes. Anything your mother makes. Anything you – Su T -make.

  2. (home made) organic raspberry jam on lightly toasted whole wheat bread of your choice.
    ditto to the PASTA, any pasta, love it all
    mushroom risottto made with in season chanterelles and asparagus, lots of regianno parmagiano
    farm fresh eggs (show me the chickens out grubbing around on the farm) with shitake mushrooms or lox scraps, don’t forget a little grind of pepper

  3. My boy at age 3 announced ‘We shall eat shrimp’. 19 years later, he still likes shrimp but loves rice and beans with Salsa Lizano.
