comfort food

Last night I made pork chops in the slow-cooker, and realized that they have to be one of my all-time favorite comfort foods. I feel cozy & comfy when I have a chop on a plate with some sort of potato (potatoes put the comfort in comfort foods!).

It’s been a comfort food week. I also made my mom’s oven-fried chicken – finger-lickin’, lip-smackin’ good! (I love-love-love fried chicken.ย  Cold or hot, it matters not.ย  Sorry, Randel.) And, when Jane was here I had meatloaf and homemade cheddar biscuits. I wonder if somewhere in my psyche I’m trying to console myself about something: this long, long winter, perhaps?

Next week, Katie‘s coming over for another one of my favorites, pasta & bacon! (specifically, Cheryl’s carbonara recipe) Need to get: the recipe for Alicia‘s blueberry orange bread. Had some this morning and it was sooo good with orange slices & coffee.

What’s your idea of comfort food?

    i need some good comfort food recipes. and i prefer they are EASY. i’m kind of a creature of habit when it comes to meals (i.e. BORING cook)…
