    Isn't it interesting that most everyone's favorite meal is Italian and not French?

    Mine: Pasta, steamed veggies, garlic and a splash of olive oil.

    I'm having trouble thinking of any french food, except snails and french bread, french toast, french fries...;)
    Damn, now I'm hungry again. Time to break out the pasta.

    I love a good pasta, especially with wild mushrooms. Of course, excellent bread and oil is a must. Plenty of fine coffee and a bit of chocolate for dessert.

    I also love steak, especially prepared in a nice French restaurant!

    My favorite meal of the day is always my first cup of coffee in the morning.

    what about 'french' fries? :rolleyes:

    Lim, HP sause goes with everything. I dont mention it because it is always implied that the sausages are smothered with it.

    Beef Wellington !

    Anything with Wasabi on it.:D



    Try this simple pasta dish. This is SOP in our house.
    Add the following in small mixing bowl:
    4 cloves of garlic chopped
    1/3 cup of parsley
    2/3 cup grated Pecorino Romano
    add just enough extra virgin olive oil to form a paste or ball.

    Add the above mixture to enough cooked (hot) Linguini to feed three or four.

    You guys and gals who like Italian food should check out - 100 ways to be Pasta and\or Sicilian Home Cooking from Cangivecchio both books are by Wanda Tornabene.

    Mmm.. my husband cooks some amazing meals, but one of my favourites is a good rum steak or Rib eye steak with cheese sauce and chips. Sounds boring but the way he makes it... HEAVENLY!!

    Your tastes are a little "privileged" for my college student budget... when I can afford it I go out, I don't cook... what foods I'm laying on the line are the sushi, take out chinese (general chicken w/ big serving of chow mein), and the classic gigantic burrito full of who knows what. The best eatin' in town for about 6 bucks. Now what I eat day to day is another story entirely... see if you can dig this:
    raw oats w/ trail mix and milk (added sweet n low)
    broccoli, cauliflower, brussel sprouts, red onions, and green beans microwaved w/ veri veri terriyaki sauce
    tuna w/ mayo and BBQ sauce
    Ezekiel's bread (9 organic sprouted grains)
    Rosarita refried beans

    Ok...here's one...
    Sunday mid-morning, I did a hard solo 46 mile ride on a beautiful but relatively warm Floridian day. Got home starving, and I downed a half a bag of those lime flavored Tostito corn chips with AIA Hot Salsa and two Yeingling lagers. How about that for a post recovery meal??
    Gotta feed those love handles!(very small ones, but eager to grow:D )
    Of couse then I had lunch!

    and Ice Cream:(

    i think that is the best recover meal i have ever heard of.

    i used to use a very similar one, two pints of Stella Artois and a large bag of Mesquite Kettle Chips.

    That's a good ride. I'm sure you'll burn off a few corn chips. Not familiar with Yeinling though.
