Sunday Suppers: A Round of Comfort Food

It’s cold down here. It didn’t even get out of the 50s today. Comfort food is clearly in order.

  1. It’s warm here, but I’d happily face the cold if you were serving up this fare! 🙂

    Chicken cordon bleu? Blast from the past!! Only I don’t think you’re as old as I am:)

  3. A risotto with dried ceps is on the menu today. That pocket looks very good.

  4. 50’s? You wimp….
    Blowing snow, and a windchill of 1 this morning.
    All your stuff would make a wonderful, warming dinner, even in these conditions 🙂

    The temperature made me smile, we haven’t got above minus 30 for weeks, usually being in the minus 40’s with wind chill on top of that and a couple of memorable minus 55’s in the mix. But then, we live on the top of the middle of nowhere, not where normal people live.

    Those carrots look great! All of it does, but the vibrant orange is really appealing to me right now.

    The 50s? I don’t know if the weather or the food makes more jealous/excited. Happy Sunday!

  8. Gah! I’m fasting right now for a physical tomorrow. Bad idea to check out your site…=(

    California cold. And comfort food indeed.

  10. We had our coldest night so far at 26 last night and windy. I’m all for the comfort food right now and it seems like it’s all we’ve been eating lately…which is okay! Chicken Cordon Bleu, can’t remember the last time I tasted that! So enticing.

  11. Carrots really are comfort food and are so colorful in the dark days of winter. Love the addition of mint. Stay warm.

    This post is delicious! Loving the comfort foods 🙂

    Temps in the 50’s, eh? If I didn’t know better, I’d say you were stirring the pot a bit with that opening comment, Greg. Even so, this was another great meal you’ve put together.

    Chicken Cordon Bleu is one of my favorites. Your pictures look great. You have some really cold weather there. It was 70 here today :). Thanks for following my blog at Our Little Family Adventure. I look forward to following you as well. Visit my facebook page at Adventure on Fridays for a Friday Community Link Up Event. I’d love to see your blog there.

    I saw comfort food and instantly thought of bread pudding. So happy it’s on the menu. The chicken looks fabulous too. Haven’t had a cordon bleu in a while. And I’d be ok if you sent some of that 50 degree weather up this way. 😉

  16. I am getting a bit of that cold wind over here in Florida! I cannot decide which looks the best – the cordon bleu or the carrots. I might take one of everything. Yum.
