Comfort Food Takes on the Swine Flu

There is nothing like being trapped at home with a sick piggy coupled with a midnight run to Wal-mart for supplies to put you in the mood for some comfort food.

I just don't make healthy food decisions while dodging the stocker's pallets in the wee morning hours. But boy was my hubby's mouth watering as he helped me unload the groceries at one in the morning!

Tonight was chicken fried steak, corn on the cob and fried okra.

The pot on the back left was getting ready for some country gravy. If I had been smart I would have used my electric skillet for the steaks and used that burner for some mashed potatoes.

I figure the only way to conquer the swine flu is to threaten it with a heart attack.

Stopped by for the blog party from Michelle's "She Looketh Well" blog. Love this picture of the comfort food. I sure how the swine flu leaves your household in a hurry!

God Bless,
