“Dinner Bowls Hall Of Fame” 🍜🍛🍲
Many of my favorite dishes are actually not served on a dish but in a bowl. To pay tribute to these meals of comfort and joy, and the person who prepares them so lovingly, I’ve put together this “Hall of Fame”.
Clockwise from top left:
* Chicken gumbo with alligator boudin and pork cracklings.
* Pea soup with smoked sausage and an occasional ham hock for rustic richness.
* Coconut curry with tofu, served here with a side of samosas (there is a vegetarian somewhere inside me who deserves a vote).
* Beef ramen noodles with a perfectly poached egg, served here with a side of gyozas.
The order in which they were highlighted was random, and there are definitely a few more (phở!) who deserve to be included.
As to why I enjoy eating from a bowl so much more than from a plate, I am not sure. Does the fact that I was born in the Year of the Dog have anything to do with that? Nah ...
This beauty @brileycotton and her hubby (and of course kids) and @stacieclinton And grandson got the #hookup of the year (it’s only January tho 😉) with #leftovers !! Everyone knows #gumbo gets better with time!! #neighbors are the best and #foodismylovelanguage so they get to enjoy it (but they also helped move a couch so it was all good for all parties involved).
Have you ever had a bite of something and then immediately ordered another serving?! 😬😏 Well, that’s me and whenever @moneygunchicago or @saintlousassembly has the jambalaya arancini. Add in the old bay aioli and seriously, I’m in heaven. #aranciniballs#gumbo#oldbayseasoning
Baaw das a good Gumbo Cher👌. Wood Duck carcasses roasted with fennel and thrown into a stock pot for 12 hours with herbs and seasoning. Seared Woody Wings, Leg bits, hearts, tenderloins, and some Savoies Smoked Sausage thrown in with the Cajun Trinity and some sweet copper colored roux and Pie-Yaw Comme Ca das a good Cajun meal #Homemade#Louisiana#WoodDuck#Gumbo#Stock#Roux#Savoies#SmokedSausage
A few months back the Asian Cajun opened up next door. On opening night me & the owner got into a bit of a tiff so I’ve boycotted the place & slandered it every chance I’ve gotten. Well today her & I reconciled & just so happen our kitchen ran out of soup so I decided to try out the gumbo. Disappointed on the lack of kick & had way too much going on like mussels still in the shell I had to fish out of there. Healthy portion for the price so good value but overall I can only go ⭐️⭐️. Probably will not get again #soupoftheday#gumbo#notimpressed @daniellegski
