Comfort Food

It’s a rainy, rainy, rainy, windy Saturday and time to cook.  Cook just one part of my favorite.  One that I’ve made but never from scratch. And today it’s only the filling. Not the dough.  The dough would require another trip to the grocery store . . .


A family staple.

Fillings vary.




Bake in rows

By the dozens

Assembly line production

 A family tradition.

Many required for the first are inhaled. Taste buds reactivated.


Family treat.

Family necessity. Always a quick reminder of so many events. So many treasured days.  Today I made my own poppy seed filling and served it up on toast – idea courtesy of my brilliant younger sister.


Comfort food = kolaches

Spark! From Paula Bourque

“Word Sparks

Words are a vessel for meaning. A single word can conjure up thoughts, stimulate memories, and/or stir emotions. Providing a single word as a quick write spark can demonstrate the power of a single word. It need not be profound like Patriotic, it can be as simple as Chair, in which thoughts of snuggling with a loved one, or shopping for a family one, or being forced to sit in one as punishment might be conjured in a flash.

You can find words in a dictionary, randomly point to one in a text, or use my friend Jennifer Laffin’s Word of the Day on her TeachWrite Facebook Page. She also has an Email List with tips, ideas and inspiration for teacher writers.”  Link

What is your comfort food?  Your family tradition?
