Hot, Cold, Luke-Warm

 Hot days dropped to cold days, 
then back to luke-warm days.
It all adds up to comfort food in this house.
 Having a bored boy visiting for awhile,
it was time for him to bake something 
' all by himself,' and he did a great job.
His choice was Pineapple Upside-Down Cake
(and cupcakes).  My, but they were goooood!!!
 Mornings have still been chilly,
so what better lunch than Chicken Dumpling Soup.
It makes a sore throat feel pretty good too.
 Of course, there is no better way to use up leftover bread,
so Bread Pudding it was.  There were no raisins in the cupboard so what could we use, but chocolate covered raisins and a handful of dried cherries.  Mercy, that pan of bread pudding disappeared in no time flat...
These are just a few of our comfort foods for these cooler evenings.  What are some of your favorites?

Tell Mr. Sy that he can make me a pineapple upside down cake anytime, they look superb! My comfort food for cold days is always my chili, which is thick enough that dad always called it stew lol. Tonight it's going to be roasted veggie casserole (we stopped at a produce stand yesterday and got some fresh zucchini, cucumbers, cantaloupe, corn and watermelon)
Ok all this talk about food and now I'm hungry lol.
Love ya and miss ya!
