The Best Thing I Ate Yesterday: Polenta, Shrimp Summer Rolls, Shiitake and Cabbage Stir-Fry


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 …

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