Thirteen Things about MissMeliss
13 of my favorite comfort foods.

  1. Peanut butter, banana, and honey sandwiches on lightly toasted whole grain bread.
  2. Macaroni & Cheese – preferably the kind from Stouffer’s, made so there’s a blistery skin on the top.
  3. Pasta e fagioli – an Italian noodle and bean soup, made meatless during Lent, but often can include meat during the rest of the year.
  4. Chili and cornbread – there’s something so completely soothing about a steaming bowl of chili.
  5. Sliced tomatoes – lightly salted, and preferably just off the vine and still warm from the sun.
  6. Pizza – either just cheese pizza, or with pepperoni. Thin crust. Cold coke.
  7. Falafel – Who new the chick pea could be so stylish. Wrapped in pita with tahini sauce, this is just smile-inducing.
  8. Beef stew – with a little red wine and a crusty bread to go with it.
  9. Cheeseburger, fries, and a chocolate milkshake – artery-hardening, but so tasty.
  10. Polenta – it’s more than cereal, less than a real meal. I’ve had it once or twice with gorgonzola – pungent but pleasant.
  11. Tuna fish with a hard boiled egg mixed in – my mother used to make this for me when I was a kid. It sounds gross, but really it’s quite tasty.
  12. Chocolate pudding, served still warm. It’s fine if there are bananas or Nilla wafers in it, but it’s also good naked.
  13. Cheesecake. Dry to the point of being crumbly, and more rich than sweet.

  1. I LOVE the Souffer’s Macaroni and Cheese. I discovered it one day next to the chicken pot pies and have loved them since. I can’t find that snack size anymore though and the bigger one seems to big. Oddly enough, my kids won’t eat it. And that’s all I have to say about Mac N Cheese today!

    Happy TT

  2. I love chili and cornbread too. There’s nothing better on a cold evening. I don’t make Pasta e fagioli, but I love it at the Olive Garden. Hmm…now I’m hungry. Happy Thursday.

    My TT is up also.

  3. I’m with you on everything but 12 & 13, and I’d have to remove the bananas from #1…I’m very weird, I LOVE things that taste like bananas but I don’t like bananas themselves…

  4. Yeah, I’m going to have to copy this list. I need some good ole’ comfort food. I personally like naked chocolate pudding . . . though I’ve never called it that. LOL.

  5. It looks like we have the same tt topic this week. I’m with you on most of those foods, although I’m not a pudding fan.
