This week’s Listicles:
from Southern girl eats clean. 10 FOODS THAT MAKE YOU THINK OF…Collage

Oh man…I DO LOVE FOOD. I didn’t have a chance to ask Hubby for his list…so it’s all me this week.


buttered rolls dunked in coffees so many people freak when I dunk my rolls/bagels in coffee???? I remember almost every Sunday my dad would get rolls and bagels and we would all sit around the dining room table eating breakfast. I thought it was something everyone did…and it is delicious. The taste of buttered roll soft with coffee or the taste of coffee with a bit of butter flavor…nothing better and the memories flood me each time.

spaghetti and meatballs nothing better than that…a perfect meal to make you feel like a kid again

chicken broth with pastina  reminds me of my mom taking care of me when I was sick and how great it was knowing your mom was always there for you

linguini with muscles reminds me of dinners out with my family when I was a teen and young adult…oh how time flies


grilled cheese sandwiches with bacon and tomatoes but the tomatoes can’t touch the bread to ensure the bread doesn’t get soggy

pot roast with garlic bread it’s just a perfect meal…a meal to fill your soul and tummy

nachos with the works sans jalapenos talk about a comfort food that just makes you feel better


ginger ale I swear I will get sick just from drinking it…it reminds me of leaning over a toilet bowl

chicken and dumplings after I cooked this in the slow cooker and had a bunch of it…we all got a stomach bug…NEVER AGAIN will I eat chicken and dumplings of ANY kind

tomato soup I loved it when I was prego with Dino…but then I suddenly couldn’t look at it anymore…I don’t even want it in the house

ALL YOU NEED IS FOOD — 25 Comments

  1. I could not agree with you more about ginger ale. Just smelling it makes me feel like I’ll be sick. I kind of feel the same way about 7 Up. My mom used to give me those when I was sick. I just can’t take them well now. The association is too great. BUT…
    I am SO SAD for you about the chicken and dumplings!! They are so delicious (and comfort food to me). I’d be devastated if I had a bad association with them! (although zipping my pants would probably be easier!) –Lisa

  2. Yup, totally had ginger ale when I was sick as a kid and we also had either saltines or white bread toasted with butter. Just totally brought me back to when I was younger with this post!! 🙂

  3. Now, come on… does that mean you are not going to make my chicken and dumpling recipe for Tasty Tuesday tomorrow? LOL. Great list chick! I am definitely going to try the bacon and tomato grilled cheese. Yummy! Hope you are doing great!

  4. YUM. Are some of these recipes forthcoming? Hum? I do want to know!

    I’m not much of a Ginger Ale person, but I do love a good sprite to settle the stomach (which lately needs to be settled often). Anything with broth sounds good to me. Tomato soup sounds acidic. But I do love a good creamy tomato.

    Sounds like a few great recipes here!

  5. Love love love mussels. Still a sucker for them every time I see em on a menu. I’ve heard of people dunking bread into coffee. Never done it myself but it doesn’t sound weird. What does though is when my nanny would dunk bread into coke. I did it once & was grossed out!

  6. You just made me hungry! I think we can all speak the language of food, I believe food bridges all people– it’s what make us happy.
    I’m all down for food-unification!
    Thanks for linking up with us 🙂
