Summer vacations. It's the season when we either travel away from home, or often, travel to see parents. Go back home if you will. Traveling often means road trips. In order to make good time, we pack bags full of snack foods. Beef jerky, pretzels, chips and fruits. Road side stops at greasy spoons and diners. *sigh*
After a long stretch on the road all you really want is a nice hot shower, to sleep in your own bed and a meal that say "HOME SWEET HOME". On the flip side of that, the anticipation of going home, traveling to your childhood home brings memories of that comfort food mom made, grandma made. Those things that you can only get the way you remember them when you go home.
That's what this week is all about. Comfort food that reminds you of HOME! So break out your mom's old recipes. Dust off your favorite recipe passed down from Grandma. That recipe you remember from childhood that just whispers sweetly, "Home Sweet Home".
The Smack Talker
I'm a fast talkin', smack talkin', food lovin', recipe writin', ADHD sufferin', joke tellin', wit swappin', SNARKTASTIC mommy of five. I married Prince Charming who just so happens to be a Star Wars geek, and we are living happily ever after. I tend to over share, lose my cool and make rash generalizations. I'm teaching my kids to love everyone and appreciate all things. Did I mention I love FOOD?
