Motivation Monday: Comfort Food!

Mondays…they’re not always pretty.  But even with ITBS and some not so respectful “friends” today, it turned out great!  I think it was because I knew I was coming home to my comfort food:  
Spicy Sausage and Pepper Stew!
(click either pic for the recipe)
 I did the prep work last night.  Then I got up early this morning to cook the sausage, pepper, and celery and then throw everything together in the crockpot.  All day long I kept picturing this:
And now the time has come…to chow down!
I hope all of you had a great Monday.  And if not, just make yourself your comfort food!  Sit back and eat the Monday blues away!  :)
What is your comfort food?!  Feel free to leave the recipe!

I also joined a fun a linky party about food!  Click HERE to check it out!


  1. My comfort food is squash! Yep, just the frozen winter squash from the grocery store. Luckily for me, it's easy to fix and is always on hand 😉

  2. Looks amazing! I love comfort food this time of the year. I'm making a squash soup recipe this week that I found on a blog called "The Smitten Kitchen." Lot's of good recipes. Oh, and I always love going to "The Pioneer Woman" Blog when I'm in the need of some comfort food.

  3. I love making taco soup! It's yummo and only takes 15 minutes to make, which I'm eternally grateful for at the end of a hard day.

  4. Mmmmmm! That sounds good! ^Nina, I LOVE taco soup too! It's so super easy. Dana, I'd love for you to link up recipes some times in my Sunday "Hey Good Lookin' Whatcha Got Cookin?" linky :)
