Zip. Nada. Nothing.

No Phone call! It was the longest day ever. I was kind of geeky sitting by the computer with home phone and cell phone sitting next to me. All modes of communication at the ready with me ready to pounce. At about 4:30 I accepted that today wasn’t the day. I really wished that valentine’s day could be our referral day. So, then I launched into comfort food mode which was easy to do after the chocolate killings that happened in kindergarten today. Zannie came home with chocolate on her dress, on her shoes, on her face and in her hair. She carried a plate of cookies and a bag filled with valentines and assorted lollipops, chocolates and a fruit loop necklace that they made. Ahhh…thanks. Sugar her all up and then send her home. Good times.

I made a classic comfort food dinner. I make it about once every two years and then I’m good for another two years. Broccoli rice and chicken casserole made with cream of mushroom soup. Yep. Tonight, it was soooooo good. Serve a salad on the side and you’re good. You don’t need to eat for another day or two. I was thinking about comfort foods and how they play into ending a hard day. What is it for you all? Chocolate to mend a broken heart? Or, is it like a friend told me once, comfort food is always white or brown. Potatoes, gravy, rice, cheesy things, ice cream, chocolate, cookies, etc.etc. I used to find total peace from the world in Mother’s™ taffy cookies. Chow mein or pad Thai noodles do well in a pinch. Soup soothes the cold, but doesn’t mend a sad soul. You need substance. Baked potato. Spaghetti and meatballs. Sundae. You know what I’m saying. So, what are your ultimate comfort foods?

    I am a yellow comfort food girl! Mashed potatoes and good crackers and fancy cheese…mmm. Of course m&ms always make everyone feel better. Unfortunately my daughter has picked up on the comfort food idea and every booboo is now fixed with chocolate chip cookies!

    My ultimate, having a bad day, going to have to “waller” in misery, don’t feel like making a damn thing for supper and we could just eat dog food and survive just fine thank you meal… is Chicken and Dumplings. One of my g-aunts used to make chicken dumplings for all the family get togethers and I totally loved it. I asked her once how to make it like her and she said “well… I use flour and water.” and that was it… the whole recipe… right there. I was like uhh o…k… and have since worked out her recipe on my own 🙂
