Last year, I put thousands of pounds of food in my mouth. Let’s take a moment to reflect on the meals that were most important to me in 2018.
This was very tough to narrow down. There are several meals I feel bad leaving out. But I can’t spend any more time scrolling through pictures of food on my phone.
Honorable and Mentionable
Before we get to the top-shelf stuff, I have to give shoutouts to the unsung heroes in my eating life.
It was a great year for my ongoing, very passionate, relationship with complimentary bread. But two free loaves stand apart from the rest.
- The complimentary bread at Luciano’s Italian Restaurant is absolutely bonkers.
- The brown bread at Cheesecake Factory is a toasty, sweet dream.
- When I found out that the Cheesecake Factory sells their bread at Albertsons… I knelt in the supermarket like I was Tim Tebow and the year was 2009.
I couldn’t stand a week on this Earth without black beans. In 2018, I ate four cans of black beans per week. They are my rock and my inspiration. To every last legume I scarfed in 2018, I say, thank you.
The Lola at Janjou Patisserie still might be the best bite in Boise, but I’ve talked about it enough already.
