Only 25?

Which gets "booted" whenever one of us meets with another and comes up with a regional delicacy that the guest has never experienced?

"Cooking" can be a wonderful world of learning, advancing or reaching back...to confine to 25 things is just about "heartless", Bang!

In no particular order:

1. Thai green curry
2. beef and bean burritos
3. spaghetti and meatballs like mom used to make
4. sushi (this isn't actually a meal, but a food)
5. grilled vegetables with loads of garlic (zucchini, peppers, onions, potatoes) This along with a steak is pure heaven

Will have to stop here and get ready for work. Has anybody ever told you this site is addicting?
