A Penny For Your Thoughts


By Nancy Whitaker


Everyone has a bad day once in a while or they get sick occasionally. While some like to drink their problems away, others just light up a cigarette to calm them down. When I have a bad day one thing that I turn to is food. I call it my “comfort food.”

Sometimes, I love to think back to my childhood and remember some of the foods my mom cooked. That always brings a touch of nostalgia and triggers  my memories of growing up. Some of those are my comfort foods.

Growing up in the 1950s and living in the country, our food was simple fare, but it was really tasty. A group of friends were talking the other night about the various foods  they ate when they were growing up.
