Election Results

Here is a list of the ‘other answers’ that people wrote in:

  • “Bread Pudding – Pumpkin Bread Pudding with Caramel Sauce”
  • “Pizza. How is this not on the list?”
  • “Mashed potatoes”
  • “Chocolate” (2 write-in votes)
  • “Clam chowder”
  • “Chili”

Interesting findings.  What’s my favorite comfort food, you ask?  If I had to choose from among the choices I gave, I’d have to say Macaroni and Cheese.  I used to make this KILLER mac & cheese, using a recipe I got from Cooking Light magazine a bunch of years back.  It was four-cheese thing, using fontina, Parmesan, cheddar, and Velveeta Light.  They don’t make Velveeta Light anymore, so I’ve been too afraid to make the recipe with the full-fat version – it might end up to be too good, and I’d eat the whole thing.  The recipe called for crushed melba toasts, to give it a nice crunchy topping.

Oh! I just found the actual recipe, from (this blog happens in REAL TIME, my friends – no preplanning):
Creamy Four-Cheese Macaroni Recipe –

I may have to revisit that old favorite. Except my husband does not like macaroni and cheese. Luckily, he travels a lot. 🙂
