Comfort food comes in all forms. I think we all have our favorite comfort food, but I am able to find comfort in all kinds of food. Today was a bad day. Not for me, I had a pretty good day, but when my kids got home from school it was obvious that for some of them it was a bad day. I had intended to blog about the amazing dinner I made tonight. It was so good, and reminded me of a spicy penne pasta that I had ordered not long ago from River City Grill in Sterling. Briefly I will tell you about that dinner - but sorry no pictures because I was distracted by the bad day my kids had.
I made a white sauce with butter, flour, and milk....but in that sauce I put onion, garlic, pepper, season salt, HOT salt, sun dried tomato and garlic pesto, green chilies, and smoked sausage. I tossed in some penne pasta and it was amazing. So glad I have leftovers for lunch tomorrow.....but as I was cooking dinner I was distracted thinking about what I could do to treat my girls.
I grabbed a box of brownie mix and got to work. I put a pan of brownies in to cook while we were eating dinner. Once those brownies came out I put the extremely warm brownie into a dessert cup. On top I put a scoop of vanilla ice cream, some chocolate sauce, and some leftover frozen Andes Mints pieces on top. Now as I type this I hear one of my girls singing to herself. Mission accomplished. A little comfort food can really
change your outlook on things.
What is your favorite comfort food?
