The Best Thing I Ate Yesterday

Welcome to The Best Thing I Ate Yesterday, where we endeavor to remember the very best thing we stuffed down our gullets over the past 24 hours. Why? Because the only thing better than enjoying a meal is wallowing in the memory of one savored in the recent past.

Today's fond reminiscences ...

Victoria Bekiempis: Sautéed polenta with chunky tomato sauce, made at home.

Rebecca Marx: A bowl of oatmeal with dried figs, walnuts, honey, and peanut butter, at home.

Lauren Shockey: Shrimp summer rolls at Baoguette Cafe (37 St. Marks Place, 347-892-2614).

Chantal Martineau: A shiitake and cabbage stir-fry with both mushrooms and cabbage from Rexcroft "100% Uncertified Organic" Farms, made at home.

Robert Sietsema: Homemade tuna salad with Italian canned tuna, on toast, with a dill pickle.
