Comfort Breakfast: Grits with Parmesan Rock Fish and Seaweed

Ms. Foodie has been feeling a bit under the weather, so comfort foods are in order not only for nourishment, but for pampering.

Grits are my go-to breakfast comfort food. Ms. Foodie had some leftover Parmesan Rock Fish, so that added some protein and flavor, while Seaweed flakes added some chew and spice.

Along with some Peppermint Tea with LOTS of honey, and Ms. Foodie is feeling better already!

Comfort Food: Skillet-seared Salmon with Browned Butter Pasta and Peas

So three quarters of this meal involves butter and cheese: Comfort food much? NEVER too much. #foodie #ieatthereforeiam #comfortfood #fallmenu

Midnight Snacking

Ms. Foodie is burning the midnight oil, for no good reason except that I am up.  And of course, that means my stomach has the grumbles.  So, the midnight snack of choice is microwave popcorn sprinkled with grated Parmesan/Romano cheese instead of salt.   Talk about melt-in-your-mouth goodness!  And no midnight snack would be complete without a nightcap:  A Tolosa 2006 Pinot Noir.  Just adds to the richness of it all.

With Julie & Julia playing in the background, it makes sitting up late and blogging seem like the perfect thing to do into the wee small hours….

Sleep is overrated!
