Comfort

You know those times when something happens that quickly reacquaints you with the reality of how precious life is? Tonight was one of those instances. Deepest thoughts and prayers go out to my friend up north who is currently in critical condition. 😦 Tell the ones you love how much they mean to you…right now. Life’s too short sometimes it seems.

It just happened that on tonight’s dinner menu was THE comfort food of comfort foods: chicken noodle soup. Homemade. I used the high-fiber, low-calorie noodles I got from Akins a few weeks ago — 2 ounces for 130 calories and 20 grams of fiber. Wowza!

 
 Steaming away…mmmmmm!
  
 Loaded with fresh celery, carrots, and lean chicken breast tidbits

Today at work, I had the priviledge of trying my first piece of fry bread…made into an “Indian Taco”. Indian fry bread is a traditional Indian food consisting of a fried battery of flour, hot water, baking soda, and a pinch of sugar. It was sooo good! Obviously, however, it is a very much so consume-in-moderation food. Hello, saturated and trans fat!!
