When one is unwell, comfort food is just the thing you need… They have such a nostalgic and sentimental appeal… I mean it acts like up an instant cheer up thing..
They have this burst of flavours and some sort of and mostly very happy memories associated with them.. it works best when some one makes them for you..
Last week I injured my feet rather severely…Got myself roughly caught with a nail and well deep wound on leg.. I had no strength to move them so went up to my folks and you know mums , she was like we need to get you tetanus shots. Injections!! damn damn damn, I hate them I so totally hate needles.. I cringe and quiver at the very sight of them, so you can quite imagine if 3cc of Tetanus are stuck through a needle.. I am bound to through a fit to say the least…
So in order to keep me calm, mum promised that once we are back from the first set of shots tonight (yes, I needed one the next day as well) she was to prepare my all time favourite dinner.. Chilly Garlic Noodles.. so stay calm and you will get your wish and with those words, the doctor stuck the needle into me.. I did shriek but a faint one.. So we got home and mum got cracking…
