There have been several days over the last few weeks that have felt a lot less like summer and a whole lot more like fall! The temperatures have dropped, a cool breeze has kicked in, and I can already see our crops in the fields starting to change colors. Now I’m not saying that it’s time to put away the flip flops and bust out the boots just yet, but the slight change in weather is definitely making me crave some comfort food!
My kindergartner was kind enough to share the cold he brought home from school with me, so I was stuck in bed all weekend sniffling and sneezing. I don’t know about you, but colds ALWAYS make me crave comfort food too! It’s kind of a weird sensation because when you’re sick, you can’t smell or taste a darn thing anyway, but at the same time you just want to eat all kinds of yummy food. My cold craving list for this weekend included mashed potatoes, strawberry milkshakes, pancakes drowning in syrup, and broccoli cheddar soup. Also on the comfort food craving list… this Creamy Bacon Corn Casserole!
