We’ve been hit with a major cold front here in Florida. Usually people are quick to bust out their sweaters when it’s in the lower 70’s but I have to say it is legitimately cold. This morning it was in the lower 40’s which is probably the coldest it’s been the whole six years I have lived here. Last month, I was lucky enough to make a quick trip out to visit everyone at the Tablespoon headquarters in Minnesota and I had to buy a pair of closed-toed shoes just for the occasion. All this Florida girl owned were flip flops.
Now I can relate more to all of you who have been trying to warm your bones. I was still in summer mode; grilling in my backyard and eating “summer foods” like salads and sandwiches. Now, I just want to curl up with some warm comfort food. This Broccoli Chicken Divan was bubbly when I took it out of the oven, and I couldn’t wait to dig in to warm me up. My family loves chicken, broccoli and cheese so this dish is sure to become a regular at our dinner table, even though this cold spell is not supposed to last long.
What are your favorite comfort foods?
