Comfort Food

Yesterday I drove to Dallas, TX to drop off my daughter at the airport. Her vacations were over and she had to leave back to Seattle.  From Fort Smith to Dallas is a five hours drive one way. So after my daughter left I spent a night in the nearby airport hotel to rest and ... be sad... on my own...
I miss you, my little princes, I miss you a lot...

This morning, still a little sad but assured that she's got home, I had to drive back to Fort Smith. Yet another five hours drive.
Before heading north, I needed some comfort food for which I stopped at the Whole Foods.
My breakfast was a kale salad, so good that with each bite I felt better and better (that's why they call it "comfort food" - the food that makes you feel better?!).

Then after some little shopping for the New Year's table, I drove back. 
I made only one stop for gas as I decided to skip the lunch until I get home.
Upon my arrival my mom treated me with a great soup, which she mindfully made vegetarian. It was delicious!
Then we all enjoyed a Texas caviar with some more kale.

After the holidays everyone appreciated something light and really simple.

How was your Tuesday: Kale or No Kale?

Until next time,
Cowboy Country Vegetarian


  1. It's tough when the kiddos leave home, isn't it? I'm glad you enjoyed your comfort food - but my Tuesday was no Kale. However, I'm fascinated with you love of it! Sorry this took me so long - but I'm your newest Google Follower!

  2. Thank you, Ann.
    It's actually somewhat "funny" but she didn't leave the home. We left... and she didn't want to go with us. Now she's been asking me when we are coming back home. :)

  3. I hope you feel better :( No kale for me, I'm finding it so hard to go back to the healthy foods!! Hopefully when the Christmas cookies are finished!

  4. Dear Ruth, I know how you feel. All that Christmass baking is hard to resist. I told myself: "no sweets until New Year". Guess what? My mom made some today and I ate a few... (Sigh)


Your warm comments put a smile on my heart.
