I can’t believe it’s the end of the month already!
There are so many other delectable comfort food dishes to sample. Don’t worry. We’ll serve up more comfort sometime soon. But for now, I’d like to add some cozy thoughts and a few chuckles to your bowl. Nosh, nourish, pass it on. Offer someone a little comfort today as you go about your business (a smile or hug works wonders).
"From morning till night, sounds drift from the kitchen, most of them familiar and comforting….On days when warmth is the most important need of the human heart, the kitchen is the place you can find it; it dries the wet sock, it cools the hot little brain.” ~ E.B.White
"Some sensible person once remarked that you spend the whole of your life either in your bed or in your shoes. Having done the best you can by shoes and bed, devote all the time and resources at your disposal to the building up of a fine kitchen. It will be, as it should be, the most comforting and comfortable room in the house." ~ Elizabeth David, French Country Cooking
"On a hot day in Virginia, I know nothing more comforting than a fine spiced pickle, brought up trout-like from the sparkling depths of the aromatic jar below the stairs of Aunt Sally’s cellar." ~ Thomas Jefferson
"I love to cook comfort food. I’ll make fish and vegetables or meat and vegetables and potatoes or rice. The ritual of it is fun for me, and the creativity of it." ~ Reese Witherspoon
"I like rice. Rice is great if you’re hungry and want 2000 of something." ~ Mitch Hedberg
"Ask not what you can do for your country. Ask what’s for lunch." ~ Orson Welles
"That would be cool if you could eat a good food with a bad food and the good food would cover for the bad food when it got to your stomach. Like you could eat a carrot with an onion ring and they would travel down to your stomach, then they would get there, and the carrot would say, ‘It’s cool, he’s with me.’" ~ Mitch Hedberg
A little somethin’ to go with your soup:
