Reverb 10 – Day 26

December 26

Prompt: Soul food. What did you eat this year that you will never forget? What went into your mouth & touched your soul?

Hmm…some food that I ate this year that I won’t forget…one would have to be my own cornbread. Now, anyone that knows me knows that before 2010, I did not cook. at all. I just thought that I couldn’t, and I thought no one would like it. Well, one day (while I was gainfully unemployed), I decided that I wanted to try and make something to take to the boys in the studio. At the beginning of this year, I was in the studio faithfully. Considering it was on University of Maryland’s campus and I lived all of 10 minutes away, it really wasn’t out of line for me to spend a considerable amount of time up there. So…one night I decided to make some bbq chicken, my friend made some 4 cheese rice a roni (which is sent from God), and I made some homemade cornbread. Well…I found this recipe for cornbread online, got all of the stuff, and…damn, was it good! I shocked myself with it to be honest. I took it up to the studio (after I put some to the side for myself), and all of the food disappeared within like an hour. All the chicken was gone, all of the rice was gone, and all of the cornbread vanished. To this day, I still get people asking me to make some for them, and there are even times when I shock myself at how good it is. Other than my own food, I’ve had some amazing sushi this year from a few different places…the Mexican food I had in Florida was something simply awesome…the Indian food from Columbia is always on point…I’ve had a lot of good culinary experiences this year, and it’s my hope in 2011 to dive deeper into the culinary scene in DC and go to some restaurants that I have yet to go to and expand my palate.
