If only we could have no worries when it came to one of the glories of life, food. Even though food is one of the greatest things in life, we do need to watch what we eat. ( I know reality sucks). I would love it if we lived in a world where we could eat anything we wanted and not worry about calories, carbs, and if that plate of deliciousness is going to kill me. My dream menu is basically a dream, but a great one.
My family and I were watching the Food Network, a celebrity chef was explaing how he went to New York , expierencing their great food, great culture, and great nightlife. A place he swore by was a little family owned deli. He swore by their Bagels and Lox. When we saw this , we just thought” we could do that”. We bought all the ingredients and had an amazing breakfast. We even replaced it with our traditional breakfast that we have on Christmas. Why?, I really don’t know, it just happened. I think we were getting tired of having tamales.
Bagels & Lox: Onion bagel lightly toasted with cream cheese, red onions, fresh wild salmon, lightly seasoned with salt and pepper.
Beverages: 4-5 Memosas. Yum!
Sides: Fresh grapes, strawberries, slices of ruby red grapefruit, and rasberries.
Now for lunch. Me and my family made this mostly in the summer. This is a family dish , so we really don’t have a name for the dish. We were always excited to eat this dish. The flavors are vibrant. They definately know how to wake up your taste buds, in the greatest way possible. One of the main reasons why this is on my dream menu , is my family. When ever I think of this dish it reminds me of our family dinners . I truly miss them.
Mexican Salmon: Salmon with taco seasoning covered with fresh lemon juice, cilantro, and onions
Beverages: 2-3 magaritas with patron silver
Sides: Salad and brown rice
For dinner, I would definately take a trip to my family’s favorite restraunt , Miceli’s . I love their authentic Italian food and everytime I think how appealing my favorite dish is I just want to jump in the car and make the trip to Hollywood.
Appetizer: Brushetta and Melon with Proscuitto
Main dish: Creamy Pesto Fettuchini with Chicken
Dessert: Pistachio ice cream scoop nestled next to a double dutch chocolate ice cream scoop in a waffle cup.
This is my dream menu, it’s very family oriented because I love my family. Most of my food expierences were with my family. Their the ones that wanted me to get in this industry. So I thank my family for having great taste in food and thank them for showing me the great joys that food brings people.
