Meal on your death bed

Posted in Food & Recipes by nicolejanaye on December 28, 2010

Sometimes you come across a meal that is so incredible, so delicious that you literally drool before trekking the heavenly bite into your mouth. You make this dish the next day, for dinner, bring a plate over to your sick grandmother and possibly make batches for your co-workers that you really can’t stand. You share this meal via links on Facebook and tweet to all your twitter friends. DIY recipe cards are printing out, getting ready to be sealed and stamped to friends and family all over the states. It’s one of those meals that you would want to have before you lie on your death-bed. A carmalizing bath of flavors is all you need left in this world.

Well..this isn’t it. But, it’s a close call.

A bed of crisp red onions and rich garlic cloves lie sizzling in a mist of extra virgin olive oil. After a carmelizing bath of flavors, a fresh cibatta bread soaks up the tantalizing duo. Minutes later, the bread crisps on the edge and fills with sweet smells and mouth–watering tastes. A trickle of a balsamic glaze falls delicately on the rear portions of the flavorful shell. Cherry tomatoes, fresh basil and rosemary intertwine to create a respectable, balanced dish.

I understand more each day the importance of how short our lives are. I do believe that we should live balanced between a life worth living and one that is responsible. Travel the world, love deeply and eat incredible food. Why continue stuffing your face with microwave macaroni and cheese, when you can easily and affordably create a dish worth your time and money. Make something you are proud to share. Please, for your sake and others. A diet of mac and cheese isn’t good for your health or your bathroom.
