    This looks yummy…. But I think of Mac&cheese or french fries for ‘comfort food’ πŸ™‚

    But chocolate coffee fudge is DEFinitely comfort food!! Where is that from?

    Hope tomorrow is brighter!

      I know- I was thinking the same thing. I guess this is comfort food for the super-healthy folks πŸ˜‰

        I always think of comfort food as anything homemade. Roasted chicken is big comfort food for me because it reminds me of my Dad and being at home.

        Me too. My favorite comfort food is shrimp scampi – doesn’t sound like the most ‘comforting’ dish, but it reminds me of my mom. πŸ™‚

    The food looks so healthy for comfort food! The best medicine for a bad day is a good cuddle. I hope that does the trick.*

    rough days definitely mean comfort food. Sometimes I get my frustration out with a workout, other times it’s definitely some good food πŸ™‚

    Love that comfort food, especially when it really does the job.

    For whatever reason, mine’s always mac and cheese. warm, gooey, and a little taste of home (even if home = velveeta shells and cheese!)

    I saw the pictures of your chicken and immediately thought “engagement chicken”! Maybe there’ll be a ring in your near future? πŸ˜‰

    I always go for boneless, skinless chicken breasts, but they often turn out too dry. I am going to give your roasted chicken recipe a try.

    I love that your comfort food is roasted chicken! It’s mine too, because our family friend who was like a second mom to me always cooked roasted chicken with cranberries whenever I stayed over at her house. She passed away about a year ago but my mom has the recipe for the chicken and your post reminded me to ask her for it. Thank you πŸ™‚

    Sorry to hear Derek had a rough day. We usually go out if one of us had a crummy day — that or we open a bottle of wine.

    Haha – I think your dessert is more my idea of “rough day” food. While that chicken dish looks awesome – I usually go for the pizza on those kind of days. Hope today is better for Derek! I’ve been there with bad work days – it’s no fun at all.

    Nice job on dinner! My boyfriend would be thrilled to get a dinner like that (unfortunately for him he’s dating a vegetarian). Chocolate coffee fudge – um, yum!

    Sometimes nothing cheers me up more than an amazing meal* – especially when someone else cooks and prepares it. πŸ™‚ Your dinner looked delicious! I’m sure it was just what Derek needed to relax after a stressful day.

    (Including wine or martinis. My boyfriend makes the BEST martinis, and I find those very comforting because I associate them with him).
