Girl Talk Thursday is Mommy Melee‘s weekly event, and I really love the thought, so here it comes: my thoughts on the topic of “Comfort Food”!
I love cooking. Baking, not so much, so while the thought of a delicious cookie certainly makes me happy, I’m almost positive that delicious cookie will not be coming out of my oven. I’m not a big fan of chocolate (I know, someone kick me out of the Woman Club!) either, which makes my husband quite happy as the majority of the chocolate that comes into the house ends up in his hands — unless it’s hot chocolate or chocolate milk, in which case, sign me up!
So what is my comfort food?
If I have five minutes — peanut butter & jelly. There’s just something innately comforting about a PBJ sammich, probably since I ate many of them as a child. I’m big on lots of chunky peanut butter and just a thin layer of jelly/jam, or even playing around and substituting bananas or apples for the jelly. Yummm!
If I have half an hour — risotto. The long, labour-intensive process of cooking risotto and ending up with a beautiful, creamy dish just soothes my mind. I love chopping the vegetables, toasting the rice, standing over the oven and stirring, adding in the cheese at the end… and if I am feeling frisky, I have some truffle oil in the cabinet (thanks mom!) to drizzle over it at serving time to make it perfect!
What’s your favourite comfort food?
