ALL YOU NEED IS FOOD

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.

BEING A KID:

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

COMFORT FOOD:

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

BEING SICK:

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

  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!
