At the moment that translates to a bowl of Cheerios, but I've had a jones for cookies lately. I made a double batch of chocolate chip cookies. The bag said that would make about 10 dozen cookies. HAH!! It actually made about 45. They must be making cookies that are about the size of a quarter. We went through those in about three days, so I made one of Dear Husband's favorites: Spicy Nut Cookies. The need for sugar has abated just a bit, but it's still there, rather like a volcano waiting to blow.
January and February seem to be the months when comfort food seems so necessary. I applaud those of you who continue to eat healthy meals through the winter. Dear Husband and I tend to search out the comfort during the worst of winter, despite the fact that we like veggies and salads. DH asked me to make a casserole with chicken, veggies and cream of chicken soup. When DH is craving comfort food, it always translates into something with gravy or cream sauce. He also asked me to make Tuna Noodle Casserole this week. Our calorie consumption is off the chart between those two meals and the cookies!
I have a plan, though. I'm going to let this ride through January, and then in February, we will be eating lighter, smaller meals, and getting some exercise after dinner. There are plenty of chores that we need to attend to, and I think that extra exercise will make a big difference. So....it's couch potatoes for the next week, and then we rejoin the healthy world.
What is your comfort food? Baked goods? Candy or desserts? Old fashioned casseroles? Something salty? Frankie.....remember grilled peanut butter and piccalilli sandwiches???? *G*
N. B. 1-22-2010 I should have said that the chicken casserole with cream of chicken soup was definitely NOT fine dining. I'd really rather create something from scratch, but we were really short on time that day, so it was a crockpot meal.
