Comfort Food

I think I’ve mentioned before that chicken isn’t really a favorite of mine. Sunday I made this uninspired dinner.


I remember eating a lot of chicken dinners on Sundays. Even if the kids think eating drumsticks is feasting, I can think of a lot of other things I’d rather eat. But mashed potatoes and peas . . . that’s some real comfort food.

I actually don’t prefer to eat them the way they are pictured. I like to put the spuds on the plate, top them with peas, and the gravy is optional. I never really started to like gravy until a few years ago, anyway. The kids are picking up on my habits — a couple of them prefer their peas and potatoes mixed. Ugh — don’t put them separate! Mix them, Mom! 😉
