Juicy Lucy Comfort

Mary Fowler's version of a Juicy Lucy

This past week I realize that I must be coming off a "moving high."  Being a mom who wants to make everything okay, I'm sure that Adam and I worked extra hard to make this move as smooth as possible for the kids.  Change is hard for anyone so we wanted to lead a strong, stable example, even though we were not always so certain ourselves!

Honestly, we are all so happy here.  And maybe because of that, I have felt my mind and body kind of relax or let down a bit.  I feel a little bit tired, a little bit short-fused... a little less happy-go-lucky.  So, I have been turning to things that lift me up... like my bible study and COOKING!!

I've been baking, making soup, and watching my favorite girls: Giada, Barefoot Contessa, and Paula Deen!  Does everyone love food as much as I do??

Looking through some pictures we took after the move, I found this one and it made me laugh!  Our family loves Adam Richmond from Man Versus Food.  I don't so much care for his eating contests but I think he is such a cute, nice, and FUNNY guy!  I bet he and my husband would be best friends in real life.

Well, he visits neighborhood eateries in different cities and his Juicy Lucy (which is an egg-topped, cheese-filled hamburger) has always been something Mary Fowler wanted to try.  So (my) Adam made some for dinner and Mary Fowler was thrilled!  True comfort food.

  1. Great picture! How was it??

    I have heard of that show, but have not seen it. Is it on Food Network or the Cooking Channel?

    I also find puttering around the kitchen, cooking, (with my little tv turned to HGTV) comforting. Tried a new club sandwich recipe, made muffins, and a big dinner on MLK day.
