Today's Mofo prompt proves what I have known for years.. I am the worst at choosing! The prompt is to name your favorite cuisine. I am having anxiety over having to choose one cuisine! The easier question would be what cuisine don't I like. I don't care too much for typical American style food. I find it to be boring and bland, and I need zing in my life. And of course we all know what a joke the Standard American Diet is. I think even people who live on the SAD know it's horrible. So that is what I don't like. I love bold spices, lots of textures, I like some type of acid/vinegar to my meal, and I like meals that are bright. For instance, the other day I made a vegan pot pie for Autumn Equinox. Even though it was delicious, I froze the leftovers for later because it wasn't something that I want to eat all the time. Too safe and Midwestern. I mean no offense, I grew up in the Midwest, but my taste buds migrate to much more exotic places.
For dinner last night I made a Bibimbap bowl, which is one of my favorite dinners. I love the warm rice and tofu with the raw crunch of the veggies, and the spicy sauce just makes it all happy.
I am lucky to be back in Seattle with almost any kind of world cuisine you can imagine. As a matter of fact, it's a goal of mine to discover a new cuisine! I know I did a terrible job making a decision on this prompt, but just let it be a warning to never go to a restaurant with me, because I am the worst at choosing/decisions! That probably explains a lot about my life, but I'll save that for therapy!!
