Haiku Friday: Comfort Food

Here in Minneapolis, the chill is in the air. It was 37 the other evening as I walked outside, and when I looked up at the sky I could see my breath. Suddenly, the leaves have begun to change color and the frost appears.

I love that moment.

Part of "cozy season" is making sure that you have the right sweater and the right food. So let's haiku about that this week-- you can pick, sweater or food.  Here, I will go first:

My Mom made warm bread
The smell filled the whole house
With after-school bliss.

Now it is your turn! Just use the 5-7-5 syllable formula and have some fun....

I love you so much,
Mac and cheese. Healthy? Um... no.
But some love isn't.
Hubby Dave's homemade
veggie soup: Thick broth. Full of
veggies. Full of love.
Oatmeal was once "mush"
But I love it anyways
It warms up my heart.
A hearty beef stew
warm, crusty bread on the side,
and perhaps some wine.
Must have lamb curry--
spices beckon from inside
favorite soup spot

where I stay an hour.
Walking later, catch a whiff
of pungent sweater.

Sweater weather, ha,
maybe in January
t-shirts and shorts rule
Crispy and crunchy
fingers, greasy; lick the crumbs
Publix Fried Chicken

There is no fall in
Texas—the sun beats down still;
More ahss tea pul-leaze.
