What To Do When You Crave Comfort Food

What do I generally crave when it has been raining for four days, a miserable cold rain that lets you know winter is coming?  I crave comfort food.  The weather had precipitated some depressed moods, a few tears over other parts of life and general angst.  Luckily we had chicken legs, potatoes and onions slow-cooking in the crockpot, a kabocha squash melting into goodness in the oven, and we convinced ourselves that a massaged kale salad for greenery was expected.  It hit the spot, perfectly.

Massaged Kale Salad with Apples, Hakurai Turnips, Apple cider vinegar and honey.

 

Dessert was oatmeal cookies, whipped up with some apple chunks and a little piece of Taza semi-sweet chocolate on top.

The food was a success, even if the mood was not.  But, today, it is sunny.  Things are looking a little better.  Tomorrow is distribution, the day after, cider pressing, and Sunday is a farm tour!  Lots to look forward to!
