Comfort food

When it's cold outside and you're feeling cold-y inside, easy comfort food is the way to go. With no real food in the house, I went to the nearby grocery store last night. I kept wandering up and down the aisles, but nothing seemed appealing, and the sodium levels in the canned soups were scary. Today, I took myself to Whole Foods and wandered up and down its aisles instead. There, I picked up a happy chicken, a couple of russett potatoes, an onion, and some fresh sage, among other things, and I took them home to make dinner. I sliced the onion and put it in a large baking dish, then put the chicken on top of them, rubbed it with garlic, butter, and fresh sage, and added sliced potatoes and carrots all around. A little sherry over the top, and into the oven it went. A couple of hours later dinner was ready, and I was a happier camper. :)

Sounds yummy and simple. I have started a new job and I am ever so tired when I get home! This sounds like something I could accomplish when I a ever so tired.

I agree! Comfort food is the only way to go. Last night E and I ate a mini meatloaf and ranch style beans after the boys were all in bed. After we finished, we actually craved for more. (Guess what I'm making for Saturday dinner?)

I have been having a comfort food thing lately too. I roasted a chicken last weekend just like yours, and yesterday I made my favorite silly chicken and rice grandma casserole. It was so good.
