Weekly Photo Challenge: (Meals) Gone, But Not Forgotten

Some people never forget a face.  I never forget a good meal.  So it’s no surprise that for this week’s photo challenge, I thought of meals I had eaten and loved and wished I could have again.   So, with no further delay, here are some of my favorite food memories from Boston and Grand Rapids:

There’s no better feeling in the world than a warm pizza box on your lap.–Kevin James

Most of us have fond memories of food from our childhood. Whether it was our mom’s homemade lasagna or a memorable chocolate birthday cake, food has a way of transporting us back to the past.–Homaro Cantu

Some of my favorite places to eat in Boston will surprise you–like the Boston Public Library and the Museum of Fine Arts.  I’ll let you in on a secret that few travelers to Boston know–the library has wonderful afternoon tea in their gorgeous Courtyard Restaurant from Wednesday through Friday.  You just need to make a reservation in advance. They also serve lunch.  The Museum of Fine Arts also has several wonderful restaurants, like the New American Cafe.  As you can see in the photo above, the food is a work of art!

What are your favorite food memories?  What meals do you have over and over again and never get tired of them?  What restaurants are your favorites when you travel?

    • Hi Janet. Your comment made me smile. My Cuban friend tells me I make great frijoles negros and I’m not Cuban!! It’s funny how we have an intuitive feel for some recipes. Homemade ravioli…yum! I used to make it and then got lazy. I should try it again. Thanks for your thoughts!–Patti

  1. Patti, beautiful, no-calorie photos. 🙂 I’d eat any of them. One of my signature dishes is spaghetti carbonara as well as homemade ravioli with walnut sauce. And I’m not even Italian. 🙂

  2. All of my mother’s meals were delicious and I can still taste them. I have all of her cookbooks and recipes, but for the life of me cannot duplicate them. Either the ingredients have changed over the years (doubtful), or she had some secret ingredients (possible) or maybe I’m just not as good as a cook as she was (more than likely). Anyway the tastes and comfort are there forever. I’m lucky.
    Excellent post and great photos Patti

    • Hi Kirizar. So do I. There is something so elegant and so refined about high tea, isn’t there? And it’s delicious too! I feel like I’m stepping back in time to Victorian England. I hope you get there soon and enjoy it.–Patti
