Let’s talk for a minute about classics. No, I’m not talking about MKTO’s hit song, despite the fact that it’s refusing to leave my mind as I write this post. What I’m (trying) to talk about, is dishes, or foods in general, that bring you back to your roots. Foods that just bring you a little bit of mental peace. Not necessarily “comfort foods,” but foods that give you comfort.
Question of the day: How do you pronounce ALMOND? All-mond…AL-mond… Ahhhhhh-lmond…? However you PRONOUNCE the nut, they sure are TASTY!
Motto of the day: It’s my BIRTHDAY and I’ll eat as much CHOCOLATE as I WANT TO! If you hadn’t guessed it by now, today is indeed my birthday, and yes, I’m going to be eating a lot of chocolate. Actually, I initially made these cookies two days ago thinking they’d last till today (I was wrong). What can I say… we’re a chocolate-loving household.
If you’re reading this worried that I won’t get my sweet fix for the day, don’t fret! I have all the supplies to make another batch of these bad boys in my pantry later today 😉
Maybe it’s the fact that it’s Superbowl season, or maybe it’s that I’m just a FRENCH FRY addict, but I’ve been craving a nice ketchup recently.
I whipped this one up in ~record time~ to prep for some EPIC hash browns that I knew I’d be craving the next morning. To my (great) sadness, those hash browns did NOT end up working out. Whoops… I guess my morning brain is incapable of cooking potatoes. Don’t worry too much though, I got my potato fix with some fries at lunch 😉
