Comfort Food

Tada! Spinach and pilaf.

God knows where mom got the recipe, (maybe from the back of the Minute Rice box?) but I love it. We ate it all the time growing up. It's fine egg noodles and minute rice, sauteed in butter, then covered in chicken broth and cooked until tender. The spinach is just cream cheese (a lot of it) and butter. So easy and so comforting. But, I'll admit, kinda weird.

So what do you eat when no one's looking and you want to be reminded of home?

(And don't even get me started on red noodles!)


  1. That looks like mush- but I like it!

    I need to do a comfort food post soon - homemade refried beans and tortillas made from scratch with masa!

  2. I had that the other day. It was good but not as good as I remembered. I think food that you share with family has an additional flava to it. xox

  3. That's another way of saying I miss you!
