Comfort Food

Even here in the middle of Florida we have seen some cool days and cold nights this winter.  It's a great time for a bowl full of comfort!

Everything is Homemade has a yummy recipe for Un-Chicken Noodle Soup. This is a new favorite for me.  When I made it, I was missing some of the specific herbs and spices, so I just used Italian seasoning and Beau Monde seasoning instead. (We just recently bought our first Beau Monde seasoning, and we have been dumping it on everything!  It's yum on chicken, fish, vegetables, salad, boiled eggs, bread-and-butter, bagels-and-cream cheese...)  And I did not run buy the vegetarian bouillon; I used the chicken bouillon I already had on hand.  We think this would be really good with actual chicken in it, too.  Hmmm...maybe I'll make some more tonight!

I just learned how to spell bouillon.  I thought it was "boullion", but Mr. Spelczek underlined it, so I checked my fave online dictionary. 

We love Southern Plate's Chicken and Dumplings. Hmmm...maybe I'll make this tonight! 

We also love homemade chicken pot pie, topped either with Mama's dumplings, Pillsbury's pie crust, homemade biscuits (for those of you not from the US, these are NOT sweet biscuits/cookies, but Southern quick-bread biscuits), or frozen biscuits.  Maybe I'll make THIS tonight.

The theme here seems to be "chicken and starch."

Chicken and carbs, Baby, chicken and carbs; what could be better on those wintery Florida nights? BTW, in your second paragraph did you mean "run by" or "run and buy," whichever, I get the idea. PB

I did not "run by and buy."

Sounds yummy. We're having some of our comfort food tonight: pot roast. My mouth is already watering.
