New and Old Comfort Foods

Food. A recurring subject of mine. Let me sum up in one sentence everything I've ever written about food: good food makes me very, very happy; while the absence of it, especially over a prolonged period of time, almost always sinks me into depression.

Yesterday I received a package from Mom, and more than the enclosed gift for Baby, more than the chocolate marzipan she made herself from scratch, more than anything else, I was delighted to receive the box of PC Macaroni and White Cheddar Cheese.

I cooked it immediately, and savoured every delicious, creamy, melting-in-my-mouth bite. I paired it with another perfect taste, çig köfte, one of the few Turkish foods I truly love, each spoonful of the mac and cheese extinguishing the flames of the spicy köfte I'd popped into my mouth a moment earlier.

I was very, very happy.

    Hope the Nanny search is progressing...we are all awaiting the next installment!

  2. Mmmmmm, PC Deluxe! Cécile, what is the maximum luggage weight I am allowed, for when I visit in June? How many 225g boxes of PC Macaroni and White Cheddar Deluxe should I bring? Will four cases be enough? Six, maybe? Okay, ten! A two months' supply! (But must I eat it when I'm there? Can't you just serve me çig köfte with rice? :-) xoxox MOM in CANADA
