Lately Ive been turning to comfort foods when my anxiety gets bad. Which is all the time really. I've been hardcore craving sushi lately. Its one of the foods that really makes me happy. I found a recipe for Spam Musubi which is a Hawaiian caramelized spam sushi roll and it sounds HEAVENLY. I must have it soon!

Whats your go to comfort food? What cultural foods do you enjoy the most? I love Japanese and Lithuanian foods the most.

BTW I'm Giddie. I'm here to make friends who like to talk about food that makes them happy.


Rough morning so far #CheckInWithMe

So far today has been rough. Woke up at 10am with horrible GI distress. Spent most of my morning in the bathroom crying from the pain.

Had therapy at 11am. It went well enough. We did an anxiety assessment and I scored in the lower range of having acute anxiety, which didn't surprise me at all. Its been bad the last month. At the end, he asked if there were any topics I'd like to focus on next week. I want to unpack my diagnosis of sexual aversion disorder. I've been feeling very alienated in my community because sex is so important to my friends and others in the community and I just don't share that.

We talked about The Mighty. I told him its been a big help for me to be able to vent my frustrations and get feedback from people that can relate to my struggles. He really thinks its a wonderful site and it really is.

I took my first dose of diabetes meds this morning. The pill is HUGE!! It gagged me when I swallowed it but I didn't upchuck so thats good at least.

I think I might take a nap today after getting some things done. Gonna eat a banana with some peanut butter as an early snack.

I decided I want to try making a new food soon. Its called spam Musubi. Its a Hawaiian span sushi roll with rice and caramelized fried spam and nori. It sounds amazing to me and might become a comfort food if I'm very lucky.

Whats your favorite #comfortfood ?



Do you have a food you turn to for comfort? Maybe its grilled cheese cut into triangles, maybe its ice cream, maybe its a piece of chocolate.

Tonight I ordered Chinese food. I have always loved Chinese and Japanese cuisines. I got boneless spare ribs and pork fried rice. Both were excellent. The fat on the ribs is my favorite part, its so delightful.

I also ordered a pint of ice cream to soothe my anxious mind. Its sea salt caramel truffle ice cream from 7-11. Nothing too fancy but its exactly what I needed tonight. I let it melt and then sluuuuuuuuuurp it up. I mean otherwise its... cold? And that hurts my teeth. Anyways, isn't melted ice cream really just a milkshake? lol

What is your favorite comfort food?

Thought I'd lighten things up around here for a couple of days. Food has the capacity to transport us from one moment to another. It can tell a story and completely shift our mood. And it's one of the most meaningful ways to connect to others, which is why I love being a chef.

One of my favorite comfort foods is a good pizza. Thin crust, fresh mozzarella, some fresh basil, good tomatoes and mushrooms. My mouth is watering and it's only 9am.

What is your favorite food or foods? What story does it tell or what memory does it recapture for you?

Vegan "fish" and chips

Today I tried out a recipe for making vegan "fish" and chips out of canned artichoke hearts and potatoes! The recipe included dill, nori (seaweed), pickle juice, and lemon juice. It turned out really well and wasn't that difficult to make. I am not vegan, but I don't like fish, so this was a nice faux fish option for me!

The recipe that I used can be found here:

Comfort Food

What's your comfort food when the mood is low, when trigger becomes bitter, when the light life is dark? We all need comfort food. Do we need the 'greens' to combat the 'blue'?
Do we need chocolates to keep the mood in the closet?

Chocolate is my ultimate comfort food. Even if it's a short lived respite from my stressed brain.
