This a family recipe, a poor folks meal as we say. I wish I could tell you it's some secret family recipe that I would not dare divulge here. Nope. Elbow noodles, fried onions (sauteed for you gourmets out there- fried for us Southerners), and the secret sauce- Ketchup! That's it. I know, I know, but I swear it is the best. Not exactly fancy but it is so good and I have been eating it my entire life. Upon the first bite I immediately felt nourished...full...rested...relaxed...and happy. What is your favorite comfort food? Do you have a weird family recipe like this? Better yet- is there anyone else out there that makes this very thing?
I have to tell you that the Recipe Beginnings chopped onions above are the best thing...since sliced bread as they say! Literally they were the difference between my comfort food and ramen noodles last night. Also, don't you love the green depression glass bowl? Only .99 at my favorite thrift store a few weeks ago.
Hanna is headed our way this weekend. They are calling for some wind and rain here in central Virginia. I think that might call for more comfort food.
