Is 2020 over? Really? you sure? … Let’s check the calendar again. Yes, the top number is actually 2021. New Year — and hopefully a better year. After 2020, better competition is not particularly fierce.
Before I start looking for metaphors and similes to define what we have experienced, and before continuing with it, I cut into the chase and most to return like normal, easy, not Get started with what you need. I wake up with cold sweat at 4 o’clock in the morning. Don’t take your temperature 12 times a day because it feels a little warm, and don’t allow you to wear a sweater when it’s 80 degrees outside.
Cut into comfortable food, the concept of scanning well to your ears with just soft sounds, jarring fricatives, happy Fs, Ms and Os. Comfort food is a very well-established concept, so Wikipedia actually has quite a few pages dedicated to that concept, with cross-references to comfort food dishes around the world. “Comfort food is a type of food that offers someone nostalgic or sentimental value and can be characterized by its high calorie, high carb levels, or simple cooking. Nostalgia is personalized. It may be something, or it may apply to a particular culture. “
And yes, I think the specificity of “high calorie properties” and “high carb levels” is unexpected and unexpectedly true.
Also, the phrase is actually quite new and is said to date back to 1966. “When the Palm Beach Post uses it in the story:” Adults turn to what’s called comfort food when they’re under severe emotional stress. Like my mother’s poached egg and the famous chicken soup, I ensured my childhood safety. “
As I mentioned, Wikipedia lists many other comfort foods for many countries, and perhaps for the United States more than anywhere else. From apple pie to biscuits and gravy, from chicken and dumplings to macaroni and cheese, from pot roast to tuna casserole, I think we must be under a lot of stress here.
And when I’m stressed out and can’t cook, I’m grateful for the joy of takeaway.
Roscoe Chicken and Waffle House
730 E. Broadway, Long Beach; 562-437-8355, www.roscoeschickenandwaffles.com
Chow Chow dominates Roscoe’s Chicken and Waffles House, which has been a facility since 1975. And it dominates a lot. This is a very complex restaurant that is easy to choose.
I think the easiest way is to use one of the special herbs (herb Hudson is the founder). With half the chicken (and very large chicken) and the southern part fried in the crust, it offers the best pair of waffles in town, even if you vow not to eat the crust. Waffles and chicken just hang butter. Or, when you get the adjacent variation, the gravy sauce and the sweetest, softest and tastiest onions ever drip.
And it’s just a little bit of the menu.
For example, Sir Michael. This is a quarter chicken covered with gravy sauce and onions, covered with grits and hot biscuits. It is an incarnation of soul food. When you move to Lord Harvey, the chickens are halved.
For me, Roscoe’s is all about chicken (especially Southern Fried Chicken) and waffles, which is the origin of the name. But there are a lot of additional chicken actions here. For example, there is a menu section dedicated to “New Chicken Chili”. You can put the bowl on top of rice or beans. You can get it with dumplings (“Dave’s sloppy chili”). Alternatively, you can put it on top of the cheese fry. it’s good. It’s actually very good. But I live for the crust and waffles. And that’s all.
