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: Peanut butter and white chocolate dip, made by friend, at an unhealthy food-themed potluck.

Lauren Shockey: Chicken Milanese at a friend’s house.

Rebecca Marx: Salty-spicy caramel popcorn, made from Karen DeMasco’s The Craft of Baking.

Chantal Martineau: Traditional Bajan lunch at the Ship Inn in Barbados (St. Lawrence Gap, Barbados, West Indies, 246-420-7447): chicken, dumpling, and squash soup; fried flying fish; breadfruit; fried plantain; and macaroni and cheese.

Robert Sietsema: Fruit salad with Greek yogurt, honey, and toasted hazelnuts, at home.
