Since we just had Thanksgiving,  I'm thankful for food.  I think today I'm thankful for my favorite foods.  One of my favorite things to eat when I was a kid was a cold roast beef sandwich with butter on one of the slices of wheat bread and mustard on the other slice, with lettuce and a piece of cheese. To make this the greatest meal, you had to have a glass of chocolate milk to go with it.  :0)

This is going to sound gross to people who have never had this, but I also loved to eat bread and milk when I was a kid.  We had this a lot, as it was my parents favorite also.  It always tasted the best at my grandparent's house, because then you could go down to the garden and pull up a green onion or a white icicle radish to go with it.  When I got married I never ate it again.  My husband just didn't get it.  But he introduced me to something I liked better than bread and milk - Cornbread and milk.  Most definitely better.

My absolute favorite foods is New Mexican food with green chile.  When I lived in Texas I loved the Tex-Mex food, but New Mexican food is even better than that!  My favorites are cheese enchiladas, tamales, chile rellenos and sopapillas.  Yum.

Pies have to be my most favorite dessert.  My great aunt was one of the best pie makers!  She was famous and even ran a restaurant with her husband that served her famous pie.  I would save my money so that when we went to my grandparents for vacation, I could go to her restaurant and buy her Sour Cream Raisin Pie.  My mouth waters just thinking about it!  My mother-in-law is the next best pie maker.  She excels in Pecan Pie, Coconut Cream Pie and Chocolate Pie.

I love bread and milk too, but never eat it with my family. :(

I eat bread and milk with cheese and onions when I don't feel well, but my family doesn't. :0)
