Favorite Foods

I'm going to make a list here of some of my favorite foods. It may seem a little odd, but since I cycle through food choices, sometimes I forget what I really enjoyed and don't make it any more. Hopefully, I will be able to update this list frequently, and then organize it into my own special meal planner (or something like it).
