Now this may sound strange, but most of my favorite foods involve a bowl.
Well, all of my favorite foods except for bacon and fried chicken. Thought you could certainly eat them from a bowl if it struck your fancy.
In fact, all of the foods I associate with comfort – stuff like cheese grits and chili and black bean soup and late-night cereal and this incredibly delicious stew that I learned how to make last winter – all of those things are best in a bowl. I even have favorite bowls for each one of those dishes, but I probably shouldn’t frighten you by oversharing. Suffice it to say that I have a small collection of bowls that serves our little family very well.
And listen: if there were some sort of contest for my favorite food in a bowl (because let’s face it – that’s TOTALLY a possibility), I’d be hard-pressed to come up with one hands-down winner. But in the end – after a good measure of counseling and no small degree of prayer – I think that the all-time favorite would have to be a really good French Onion soup. That rich broth and those carmelized onions and that thick French bread and that toasty piece of cheese on top? HEAVEN ON EARTH TO ME.
This could all change tomorrow, however. Because I might make a batch of my grandmother’s homemade chocolate pudding. And if it’s especially good, it could quite possibly knock the French Onion soup right off of its throne.
The kitchen can be a very competitive place, y’all.
