I saw this card and just couldn’t resist…because it reminded me of comfort food. You know, that food that takes you back to a simplier time ~ it doesn’t matter if it’s a food that’s actually good for you or not…but it’s a food that has a good memory for you. Do you know what I mean? Do you have one?
I went to a favorite restaurant nearby on Friday because I was craving a good grilled cheese ~ you know, the kind with crispy bacon, tomato and actually made in the pan with a little pat of butter…the kind I don’t make but the kind that brings me back to happy childhood memories.
I even bought a small package of my favorite brand of potato chips and 3 homemade chocolate chip cookies to top off my comfort to the max..and I can happily say, I ate it all (well only one cookie) guilt-free ~ enjoying every morsel and feeling that enjoyment with every bite.
Feeding your body and mind with comforting thoughts and foods is essential to a happy life. The magic is in not overdoing it and in keeping a healthy balance in all things.
I’m not advocating emotional eating, but I get it when you can enjoy comfort from food occasionally. Don’t you agree?
May you find comfort today in every thought and every bite!
P.S. I have a special place in my heart for mustard sandwiches as well, but that’s a post for another day. 🙂
