When it’s cold or rainy or dreary, as it’s been all this past week here on the east coast, I find myself reaching for comfort foods. The classic peanut butter and jelly sandwich was what I reached for earlier this week. If you follow Jing Ai’s Facebook page, you were already treated to that info along with my wise advice that “peanut butter and jelly sandwiches fix everything.”
A friend asked me after she saw the pic of me happily munching on a PB&J what my favorite comfort foods are. Most of the time, I eat very healthy food – like my go-to Kale & Parmesan salad. But, a gal’s entitled to her comfort foods from time to time. For me, that means something salty and crunchy or salty and creamy. Yep, I’m a salt girl.
- French onion soup
- French fries
- Soft pretzels
- Kettle potato chips (I love the thickness of a Kettle chip)
- Giada De Laurentiis’ Macaroni & Cheese
We all have our favorite foods we reach for when it’s blah outside or we’re feeling blah inside because things aren’t going as expected. So tell me girlfriends, what foods to you keep stashed away so you have them when a little comforting is in order?
