Baby Boomer Comfort Food
I really do use a lot of the recipes in the cookbooks that I write about here on this blog. Sometimes I cook from scratch. Sometimes I use convenience foods. And sometimes, like tonight, it's all boxes and cans.
Bumble Bee Salmon Croquettes
Kraft Velveeta Shells & Cheese
LeSuer Early Peas
Not shown: Premium Saltine Crackers
I asked the person I cook for: "This is your favorite meal isn't it?"
"It's ummmm... Comfort Food. Like Mom used to make."
(Well, almost. His mom didn't use a boxed Velveeta mac'n cheese mix and she probably had to pick those icky bones and eye sockets out of her canned salmon. And her peas were probably from a Mason jar. But it's almost the same. Kind of.)
Hey, if it works for him, it works for me. Preparation time: about 20 minutes. Cost: about $3.50 per serving. Cheaper and quicker than the cafeteria which is the only other likely place we'll find Salmon Croquettes.
