Happy Food

Our prompt for today is- What food always makes you feel happy while you’re eating it?

hmmm this is difficult…. there are TONS of foods that make me feel happy when I’m eating them. I’ll list my favorites.

1. My dad’s stuffing- This is probably my favorite food in existence. I think I need to start asking for this as a birthday meal, and we should definitely eat it more than just on Thanksgiving. He uses sourdough bread, dried cherries, granny smith apples, pork sausage, mushrooms, and a ton of other beautiful ingredients.

2. My chicken noodle soup- I use this recipe, but I add a hefty amount of butter to saute the onions, and I use egg noodles instead of cavatelli. It’s more of a stew than a soup, and the chicken thighs are pure magic- do not use white meat!! I make it probably once a week.

3. This bolognese sauce, over noodles, polenta, or nothing. It’s delicious enough to eat like soup.

4. Chocolate chip cookies, preferably home made (with dark chocolate chunks) or from this bakery. Optimally, these would be shared with a friend or family member over a cup of coffee or tea. Naturally, chocolate chip cookies are delightful, and hanging out with people I like is delightful, but the combination is downright bliss.

Summary: (simple carbohydrates x 2) + fat + handmade magic + good people = happy food.

    I think something magical happens when we share a meal with company! You are so right, chocolate chip cookies are great but when you share it with great company…it really is bliss! Stopping by from NaBloPoMo!
