Many people have that one dish that gets them through a stressful event during the work week or a mid-life crisis. It can be a heaping plate of pasta, a bowl of hearty chicken soup or a whole bucket of ice cream. With chocolate syrup. And a cherry. Oh, what the heck. Throw a few sprinkles and some nuts on top just because you can.
When I came home from college, Mom always made me roast beef, mashed potatoes and corn, which I would hash together and top with ranch dressing. Since Devin really isn't a roast fan, and I don't have some cow rump chilling in the freezer that I could easily throw in the crock pot, I've returned to a simpler favorite - chicken nuggets and macaroni and cheese.
Not sure why I've been craving this combination lately, but after the day I had, it just seemed right. It was chilly, rainy and dark when I got home, and my chicky nuggets warmed me up.
Mmm MMM! Now if only I wasn't currently working on a dry campus, I could say *cheers* with a good glass of wine in my hand.
