My Favorite Foods

misanthrope is our fun hostess this week, here is what she wants us to do.

Now that summer is officially here, with its abundance of cookouts and picnics and ice-cream wagons…let’s talk about FOOD!
If you could choose one “main course” item and one dessert item that would, just for you, contain zero calories for the rest of your life (or zero cholesterol, zero points, or whatever your most important dietary measure is)…what would you choose? Post a pic of your chosen items if you like, or just make us drool with a description.
Since its summer and I am a native Maryland girl (who now lives in Pa.). I have to say this is what I would choose for some of my favorite foods.
First of all I would start out with a delicious garden Salad.
The Yankee: tender romaine hearts, crunchy croutons, extra sharp white cheddar cheese, sliced red onion, and tart dried cranberries; served with a crazy citrus cranberry vinaigrette dressing and toasted pecans .
Next I would have a bowl of Crab Bisque...oooooh so creamy and delicate.
Then it would be on to a scrumptious Maryland lump crab cake
If I still have room in my tummy, I would have a fried soft shell crab sandwich, this is something I long for in the summer months.
And to top off a wonderful summer meal, this would be the perfect ending! YUM
Now go see what some of the other's have to say click here. Thanks for hosting M

Oh my goodness, what a wonderful feast you have planned! Now, to be perfectly honest, I am not so much a fan of the shellfish. I might get deported out of Maryland for that :-) each their own! Your choices sound wonderful! I'm so fascinated to see what tempts each person's palate. Thank you SO much for playing and for sharing your favorite noshes!

Fresh seafood in summer - you cannot beat that!!!

I've never had crab bisque but it sounds delicious!

I dont care much for seafood, but I'll be dipped, ha, I kill me, if ice cream isn't an inspired choice for dessert!

I knew I was going to see lots of delicious food today; that salad sounds wonderful and the crab dishes have left me drooling..yummy :)

mmmmmmmmmmm icecream! I'd trade the rest for italian pastas though. Fettucini, lasagna, etc...

I love ALL of your choices, since I too am a born and raised Marylander! Crabs are in my blood, but I am not a huge fan of the soft shell!

I gotta stop reading this week's entries! I am getting SOOOOO hungry! I love crab cakes - love 'em!!!

Great choices.

Some foods are extra special only because you have them at a certain time of the year, aren't they? Now you've got me remembering some crab cakes that I had at an unusual restaurant that's part of an art gallery in Baltimore. Name escapes--maybe Anna's? the chef is quite famous-seen him on cooking shows.

And, I hope that ice cream is not that lowfat stuff since M has granted us an all-clear!
