Why THIS food item?
Recipe and Directions: See my blog HERE
Well, I agree with Jana on the types of comfort foods I tend to go for; rich, creamy, warm like mac and cheese or a homemade beef stew on a cold day -- they nourish us - body and soul. Which is my take on this challenge theme. I am nourished by my "comfort foods" and they aren't always foods.
Playing with paper and glue and using some imagination is also comforting to me. So, I combined both with the card below: chocolate and playing at the craft table!
Why chocolate? Why, that would be like asking - why breathe? It's delicious, velvety smooth and you have your choice to either go complex and intense (dark chocolate), or warm and homey (milk chocolate), and even light and pleasant (white chocolate-I know, party pooper, it isn't chocolate and Pluto isn't a planet anymore either - happy now?). Chocolate is also for any and all moods - we're happy when we get a box for Valentine's and it's often our first response to a broken heart. Delightfully egalitarian! It is a tradition for my husband to go to our local candy store and get a box of chocolate strawberries for me for Valentine's Day and I love not only the effort he puts into it but the delicious sweet and intense flavor of the gift.I also continued this theme in the next card, a birthday card for my niece Catherine to accompany her twin brother Hunter's card - only heavy on the cupcakes! (and why not) Cake is another comfort food that has homey roots and reminds me of Mom baking our birthday cakes and how she'd always take the time to make our favorite cake, not just what she had on hand.
I didn't want to hold up getting this challenge posted because I'm excited to see what your take is on our theme. But I may post something a little later to show how MUSIC is also my "comfort food."
Hope we've inspired you to be as creative as you like with this challenge!
