Comfort Food

My post from yesterday (Bringing Back the 70’s) and getting ready for another Paleo challenge has me thinking about comfort food.  Good thing the challenge is starting after the holidays because all but one of my comfort foods is a no no when eating a Paleo Diet.  Mac and cheese, potato soup, oatmeal, and mashed potatoes are going to be off limits for the next 8 weeks.

So what am I eating tonight…Potato soup!  I learned this recipe from my mom who learned from her mom.  It’s very simple and takes so little time to whip up.   I have been known to call my mom when I’m sick and ask her to come over and make me some.  Any time I was sick as a kid my mom or Mimi (my grandma) would make me some and it may not have taken away my fever or cured me but it filled my belly and made me feel all warm and fuzzy.   It may not be much to look at but it tastes so good and reminds me of my childhood.

Mimi's Potato Soup

Simple Potato Soup


2 medium potatoes
Milk – just enough to almost cover the potatoes
1 to 2 Tbs Butter
Salt & Pepper to taste


Cut potatoes into 1/2″ pieces.  Put in a pot of water and boil until soft.  Drain the potatoes then put back into the pan and add butter, milk, and salt and pepper.  Heat on low to medium heat, just until the milk warms and the butter melts.  Makes 2-3 servings.

What food makes you feel all warm and fuzzy inside?

At the End of the Day...
