Food Revolution Day Pittsburgh

Fortunately, I ran into a former colleague and her daughter and they were able to explain what was happening at the field at Obama Academy this afternoon when I was driving home from school. Food Revolution Day!   In conjunction with Jamie Oliver, the third annual Food Revolution Day was taking place all over the globe today.

 

I took home an organic purple pepper plant for my neighbor to plant in his garden.

 

 

Here is Jen’s daughter Wylie, feeding a kid at the petting zoo.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Comfort

Last week’s challenge.  I think the idea of the weekly challenge is to  accomplish it in the week it is presented.  I am LATE.

Comfort is so individual.   It came to mind when I got home from school today and wanted to make comfort food for supper.  Pulled out the lone can of Campbell’s tomato soup from the pantry shelf and added a can of milk.  Stirred it with a whisk over the gas flame.  Yes, I know it has too much sugar and salt in it. Some taste of childhood perhaps speaks to me.  I put shreds of extra sharp cheddar in the bottom of the bowl and pour the hot soup on top.  Not to mention the grilled cheese sandwich to accompany it, grilled in the cast iron skillet.  A slice of cheddar and a slice of swiss.  Pepperidge Farm White Bread. We are talking comfort here.  And it was that loaf that inspired the menu too. (thanks Steve for that)    Or maybe the upcoming field trip to the Warhol museum with the eighth graders this Thursday brought the can of soup to mind!  Oh, the school day disappeared in the warmth of the soup, the melted gooey cheese with the toasty grilled buttery bread.  Life is good.  One fast shot with the trusty iPhone (Old model, no line for me) before savoring the simple comfort on a chilly autumn afternoon. And J remember the woman who used to come and help you in Kentucky and you’d make her a grilled cheese for lunch and she’d ask you to “burn it a little!”.  She came to mind as I tried to NOT burn the bread.  Dessert was a Farmer’s Market new apple, sliced and cored and three gingersnaps. What is your comfort food?

Grilled cheese sandwich and cream of tomato soup right out of the can!
