Food For Thought

This is Day 19 of the 20 Days of Chill writing challenge hosted by P. J. at A ‘lil HooHaa. Today's prompt is Your favorite meal. Please visit the other participants for more stories.

Wow, I think this is the hardest prompt yet. I can't write about my favorite meal because I can't pick just one. So I'll try and categorize some of my favorites - in no particular order.

Most Anticipated: Pizza. I make homemade pizza about every other weekend.

Biggest Yum Factor: Grilled Skirt or Flatiron steak with a simple sauce of olive oil, garlic, parsley and anchovies, always served with potatoes.

Comfort Food: Macaroni and Cheese with Hatch chile peppers.

Favorite Vegetarian dish: White beans and rice with caramelized onions.

Favorite Seafood (at home): Grilled Salmon tied with Maple Soy Salmon, always served with potatoes.

Favorite Meal Out: Crab Legs or really any seafood meal along the coast.

I realize these aren't all complete meals, but the "with-its" vary depending on what I have on hand, and as always, potatoes make everything better.

  1. I've never understood the concept of comfort food. In fact, I think I heard the term first on a blog just recently.

    1. That's interesting...that term has been around for quite a while. I decided to look it up. Basically it is a simple, high carb food that provides a sentimental or nostalgic feeling. To me it's simple, everyday food that just give you a warm, happy feeling, or lift your spirits if you're feeling down or blah.

  2. Hi Linda - love the thought of that pizza .. I've been craving some for ages - it will come round in due course! Comfort food for me is cauliflower cheese .. but I eat loads of fish ... so all your sound delicious ... cheers - and happy foodie weekend! Hilary

    1. I always look forward to pizza night, and I love seafood. What is cauliflower cheese? I shall have to look that up.

  3. That pizza looks good. And I love me some pizza, that's for sure!

  4. Now I am so hungry I won't be able to sleep! I simply miss your food......and you....of course!

    1. Sorry about that, and I miss you, too!
