The best-tasting things I've put in my mouth

This is in response to Kayla's post on my Facebook Wall:

 
A few weeks ago when describing some food I said, "This is one of the best-tasting things I've ever put in my mouth." And then I thought about how you might think that was funny and that I should tell you. but I didn't remember to tell you until just now. And also I'm in the process of compiling a list of the best-tasting things I've put in my mouth. If your list wouldn't be too extensive, perhaps you should compile one as well. so far mine only has a handful of dishes.

So here you go, "The best-tasting things I've put in my mouth"
