Comfort Food

Originally published at BunkBlog. You can comment here or there.

Planning a comfort food dinner party for this weekend, when the lovely and captivating Kat is finally introduced to the majority of the people I talk to her about. I try to have a theme for my parties. The last party (way back in January) had a theme of “cheese and crackers” (plus chocolate souffle) and the one before that had a fancy-pants theme. That one had half Cornish hens, individual baked Alaskas, and so on. This party, I decided to avoid the chaos and go with a simpler theme: comfort foods.

What do you consider a comfort food? We ended up with 7-layer dip, ham soup, pot roast, and mashed potatoes. Dora seems to think that tiramisu is a comfort food, but that may be personal preference. Naturally, I can’t do anything simple 100%; there is a special dessert planned for this party, but I’m not giving anything away until I have to. Stay tuned for photos on Monday. :-)

Now, off to frost a cake for tomorrow’s fall festival. Yay.

Wow, I feel like I missed a post somewhere along the way! I knew nothing about Kat. She's obviously a romantic interest based on those photos, right? How'd you guys meet? What's the story? I'm happy for you!

Also, ref: comfort food--mac and cheese. From scratch...not Kraft or anything. For dessert...I would say chocolate cake with thick fudge frosting. Or...homemade ice cream.

Dang, I'm hungry now!

Proving that, no matter how much of a foodie I am, I still have some white trash background going, I really dig the Kraft powdered cheese macaroni thing. Those few times I've had mac & cheese at a restaurant, it wasn't very appealing. Of course, I'd think maybe a good mac & cheese would involve about 4 different cheeses. The dessert will involve chocolate, I promise. :-)

Kat is the woman I've been dating for about five months. She's in Lubbock (3 or so hours away) right now, but moving here in December (crosses fingers).

Yes, mac-n-cheese, definitely.
Also, some have suggest meatloaf as a major comfort food, though I'm not entirely convinced.
For me also:
Peach Cobbler
Biscuits
Frito Pie

I'm a big fan of meatloaf, too. No onion soup mix for me, though - homemade all the way.
