Truth be told, I’ve been having quite a bit of a writer’s block as of late. Blame it on the festivities, the month-long Ramadhan-designated posts, and perhaps the lack of enthusiasm to bake [and eat] any more cakes and cookies after Eid. Then again, I should clarify that;– the lack of enthusiasm to bake [and eat] any more cakes and cookies that aren’t already on the table and in the jars tempting me every morning. It’s always interesting how everyone seems to look forward to the once-a-year spread of delicacies and festive dishes, but just a day or two of these treats would suffice, and send most of us craving for good old comfort food.
For some on my Twitter list, as I had noticed, comfort came in the form of a bowl of piping hot instant noodles with cili padi (bird’s eye chilli), while many turned to greasy indulgence of burgers and french fries. For myself, much to the dismay of my expanding waistline, comfort almost always comes in the form of starchy carbs, and anything with potatoes definitely tops the list.
