BEST of the Best!

Regular readers of this blog know we post an annual Best Eats list — where we list all the best restaurant meals.

Notice I wrote “restaurant meals.” That’s because our best meals over all, by a longshot, are those Bob makes at home. It’s a great way to balance the less healthy restaurant meals with some delicious nutrition, like this Fried Cabbage and Veggies over Rice Noodles:

Bob’s specialty is spaghetti. He makes it from scratch, and it’s always amazing. When we found lobster tails on sale at a local market, well… awesome!

Why go out for wings when you can get them exactly the way you like them?

Even a staple like Ham and Eggs takes on new flavors. Bob adds a bit of his special mix to the eggs (green onions, leeks, sweet peppers and probably other things I’m missing)… add some vine-ripened tomatoes and a multi-grain English muffin on the side, and you’ve got a breakfast you won’t find anywhere else:

I’ve written before about how much we love getting local foods in areas where we’re staying… and to peek ahead a bit, we’ve been along the Pacific Coast where Dungeness Crab and oysters are plentiful. We’re eating our fill of Crab cakes — here with an egg and barbecued bakes beans on the side:

And for a variation, with oysters and crab meat as sides:

What are your favorite home-cooked meals? If you’re cooking in an RV, do you make different meals (or make the same meals differently) than you would in a conventional kitchen?
