I am not big on post food pictures, but the wife and I like this little old family restaurant in a nearby small town. They have a monthly calendar of daily specials we consult. Our favorite over there is the chicken fried steak. It is the special one day a month. In fact today was that day for January. So we drove over there earlier and had the chicken fried steak with mashed potatoes and white mushroom gravy. YUM. They bake their own breads there (and great pies too), and they make a good salt rising bread, which is hard to find. So I always have toasted salt rising bread as my bread choice. The tiny place also has a soup and salad bar. Regular salad stuff plus things like guacamole or pickled cabbage. And the soup bar always has at least five soups to as many as seven. All home made, and pretty good. Regulars are good chicken noodle, classic bean soup, the stupid broccoli/cheese soup that is everywhere, a great creamy potato soup, and chili. SOme days they have French onion, or maybe spaghetti soup, really. And others. SO I have a lovely soup while my meal is cooking.
So crazy you would pick today to mention CFS. It don't get more comfort food than that. Well I guess meatloaf and mashed potatoes edges it out by a hair, at least for me.
I like what I call gravy restaurants - pretty much the same thing as "diner". They are the places that will serve gravy on stuff. meatloaf and mash, hot beef sandwich, etc. Olive Garden or Outback my be nice places, but they are not gravy places. No matter how good an Italian place is, or a seafood place, it won't be a gravy restaurant. "Salmon? Good choice. What kind of gravy would you like with that?" See, that doesn;t work. I like O-rings and a burger at A&W, and of course a frosty mug or rootbeer, but it isn't a gravy restaurant. Gravy restaurants often have the rotating pie cooler. That is a huge plus, even if I pass on the pie. it tells me it is my kind of place. And of course I expect a lifer waitress who call me "Hon". Even if I decide to have the goulash one day, it is still comforting to know there is a big tub of gravy waiting in the kitchen, just in case...
So enjoy your CFS dinner. We CFS brothers have to stick together.
I wonder if CFS has anything to do with my CHF?
