And Then There is Comfort Food
I guess I'm kind of a creature of habit for breakfast. Of late, I've been eating scrambled tofu with Essene bread, topped in a nut butter and a cup of miso broth. Yesterday, although it was a very warm day, I was craving oatmeal and buttered toast. OMG, a meal from my childhood.
I eat oatmeal often but not so much the butter and oh, how I love butter. I don't do well with dairy products but I still long for that comforting fragrance of butter, melting on hot toast. I make whole oats in a crock pot for Cody so I always have oatmeal in the fridge.
That's my breakfast in the picture, whole oats with honey and buttered toast. As I sat there, eating and making appreciative yummm's, I realized this is my comfort food.
Most people would opt for chocolate as a comfort food but I have to force myself to eat chocolate or sweets. Others claim macaroni and cheese but I wouldn't touch that, of course dairy. The picture of food looks pale and uninteresting but I was transported.
I think everyone has a comfort food. Anymore oatmealers out there?
What food would you Yummm after?
