Honey, I'm Home

I've been tagged by verbatim to post about the Dancing Deer Baking Company "Sweet Home" initiative:

Dancing Deer’s Sweet Home Initiative raises money for scholarships to help educate homeless women and end family homelessness. As a part of this initiative, our CEO, Trish Karter, will be riding her bike 1,500 miles from Atlanta to Boston, visiting family shelters in each city to raise awareness about this issue. She’ll also be recording stories from the women she meets along the way, asking them about their experiences. One question she’ll ask them are what foods remind them of home.(See more here.)


I love home food, aka comfort food. Potatoes and pasta, though not together. Making cheese fondue with Deb is always fun; served with wine it is even yummier. I make a GREAT shrimp fried rice and I know because Debra says so. Salmon is a big favorite for me and so easy to grill or bake. If I'm not feeling great, a nice bowl of tomato soup with toast or oyster crackers is happy food. Hmmm. So far not much green stuff. I do like a nice green salad with lots of ingredients and some blue cheese dressing. I actually do like veggies but just don't think of them immediately when I think comfort food.

To spread the word farther, I'm tagging my brother who loves food, especially free food, chele who, if her blog is any indication, sounds like a great cook and JennySmith who is caring and likes to help families. If I didn't tag you, you should still spread the word.

Hi Susan, Thanks for participating! And after reading about your shrimp fried rice, I must beg for the recipe!

The only time I've ever had pasta and potatoes together, it was divine: http://verbatim.blogs.com/verbatim/2005/02/fancy_comfort_f.html

Okay, I'll take it back. That sounds delicious and I'll have to make it soon.

Everything you list I would eat with bells on. Bells on me, not the food.

Aren't pirogies(sp?) pasta and potatoes?

The only comfort food that I can think of that really has to involve vegetables is a great BLT & avocado sandwich. You really need good tomatoes and avocado on there or it just doesn't make it! And the lettuce is a green vegetable, too.

Hey, I feel bad: I completely missed this post somehow and didn't realize I'd been tagged. I'm a week late but I'll work something up - still a week left in the ride, as I understand.

That's okay, no one else noticed their tag either - or else ignored it. I guess I'm not good at the tagging thing. :-)

Grilled cheese with tomato soup.

BTW, Dancing Deer's chocolate tangerine cookies are wonderful
