My Tinolang Manok sa Luyang Dilaw (Chicken Ginger Stew), a comfort food on a rainy day.

Rainy season allows us to cozily stay indoors and relax for a bit. You can also satisfy your cravings by preparing a delicious meal that will favor the cold weather. You should know foods that are very simple and easy to serve like a classic macaroni and cheese that will truly comfort you. Soup is famous in this season as it brings warmth and delight like tomato soup with grilled cheese sandwich and French onion soup. You can also rely on stews and casserole like tuna noodle casserole and hearty stew. Pasta is also one of the easiest meals to prepare so consider them in your lists of rainy days meals.

Oatmeal fix

oatmeal - my comfort food

I’m having this bowl of oatmeal this morning. It satisfies my oatmeal cravings for days now. It’s my comfort food and I can have it at anytime of the day. I’m in a good mood to do just anything today and feel like I’m ready to play a 5 string banjo strings. Just kidding. I have my hands full today and there’s no more room to squeeze in play time. Maybe I could find time for music during my coffee break.

Chocolate for me please

I would be delighted if hubby would give me a bag of Kisses as present on Valentine’s Day. Even if it’s not a practice for us to exchange gifts on Valentines, he makes it a point to buy something sweet for me and the kids. It doesn’t have to be expensive but chocolate Kisses will do. Chocolates serve as my comfort food when I feel low or when I’ve done something good or accomplished something for myself.
