Girl Cheese

Good morning!

There is no better comfort food than a grilled cheese sandwich. Whether you are 6 or 16 or 56!

My daughters used to call it a girl cheese. Wonder what it would have been called if I had had boys? 🙂

And there is nothing better than a Queenie’s grilled cheese sandwich. With green chiles.  Yum! 🙂

The weather was gorgeous.  Utica Square was beautiful as ever and the combo of cheeses and tomato and green chile on toasted bread was to die for. Especially after all the sweets I’d eaten the past week for my birthday.

What’s one of your favorite comfort foods?

I’m a cheese and chocolate go to kind of girl. But not together! 😦

Grilled cheese, mac and cheese. Love them both. ♡ They both are some of my favorite winter foods. You know, that time of year when it becomes sweater weather and you put on your winter “coat” so to speak. AKA those extra five or so pounds for hibernating. 😉

What is it about certain foods that make us happy?

It usually is the taste.  Sometimes the smell.

Why else would we buy candles that smell like chocolate chip cookies or cinnamon rolls hot and fresh out of the oven?

Often times for me it is the memory that goes along with certain foods that brings me comfort and joy. 

A steaming hot bowl of tomato soup to go along with a grilled cheese brings me back to thoughts of my mom standing over the stove in the kitchen cooking such a meal. It was always one of my favorites she prepared. Soup and sandwich.  The two are like peanut butter and jelly. They just go together.

I miss my mom. I get the awesome privilege of replaying those memories every time I enjoy that combo.

Grilled cheese may momentarily grant me comfort,  but our true comfort comes from our God.

Let’s all turn our comfort away from temporary material pleasures and seek the eternal.  The comfort of our God. It was there for us yesterday,  today,  and I can assure you, it will be there tomorrow. Let’s all meet with Him daily for a dose of comfort. Through His word. Through prayer.  I don’t know about you, but I find that very comforting.

Not to mention it’s calorie free! 🙂

“Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil; for You are with me; Your rod and Your staff, they comfort me.”
Psalm 23:4

Love and laughter,

Sandy
