Nom Nom Nom

Who doesn't like to eat.  Seriously, I love everything about food.  The way it comforts me, the way it smells, the way it makes me feel warm, the way it actually satisfies my hunger.  There is a difference though between eating to feed yourself and eating to feed your soul.  Let's talk about feeding the soul shall we....

When I am having a rough day and I turn to food to comfort myself there a few things that I reach for.  One is a cup of coffee.  I have coffee every single morning when I wake up, with enough hazelnut coffeemate to turn it tan.  When I am feeling blue and need something warm to hold in my hand and to sip on in the afternoon I turn to coffee.  There is something so satisfying about how it goes down and fills my belly with warm and creamy comfort.  Plus I never feel guilty have an extra cup of coffee.

Guilty pleasures though are in the mix as well.  They change often based on my mood, but I have a few favorite comfort foods I constantly reach for. 

1.  Ice cream.  Isn't this true for every female?  Vanilla bean with chocolate fudge magic shell on top is my favorite.  My recent find, thanks to the CGG girls, is Talenti gelato.  Yum.

2.  Another is my moms baked mac and cheese.  Except not baked.  Over the years I have learned I love it soo much more when it's creamy.  So without fail she will leave me out a bowl before it goes into the oven or she will just not bake it at all. 

3.  Lastly is chicken Top Ramen.  Now it cant be that Maruchen brand, nope.  It must be the official Top Ramen brand.  Nothing else will work.  And I have to crunch up the noodles and if I make it on the stove you better believe that I measure out exactly 2 cups of water because that is how it is made perfectly brothy.  It's my go to snack and lunch and dinner all the time.  It's horrible for you.  It's cheap.  It is warm.  And I love it.  Even my kids have learned to love love love "noodles" and we always have a case in the house. 

So there you have it.  My go to comfort foods.  Nothing beats them.  Now, if you'll excuse me I'm off to make some coffee and top ramen....
