Broken Heart -- Suggestions Needed

The man I love has gone very far away, and goodbyes were exchanged this morning. I'm about a bottle in, and haven't been able to eat. Any suggestions? I have pretty much everything at my fingertips -- from Japanese and Indian curry to pine nuts and sun dried tomatoes and homemade beef stock to veal chops.

What does one cook to soothe a broken heart?

  1. I'm awfully sorry about this. I'd go for soup and bread and cheese or baked macaroni and cheese. Warm comfort food.

    Hope you're able to find some comfort during this very difficult time.

    1. Yes...warm comfort foods like chicken soup. Just the ticket. Tea, something sweet might be in order, too. Cyber hugs to you!

      1. Sounds like you could use some hot chocolate or maybe some fresh-baked brownies or cookies, warm from the oven. Wishing your sweetheart a swift return and comfort to you until then. :o)

          1. You have my sympathies. I think we all feel that pain in one way or another at some point in our lives.

            Mashed potatoes, lots of butter and cream in them. Then cookies.
