I don't feel this way too often, but today I do.
I am homesick.
My homesickness for Australia was spurred on by the World Cup. Watching all the Australia matches and seeing all the Aussie fans in the crowd... Australia was such a beautiful place to grow up. I was born there and lived there until I was 22.
Weirdly enough, one of my fond memories of home is doing the laundry. Bizarre, but true.
My sister and I would take turns loading the washing machine and then hanging the clothes outside to dry. I never used a dryer before until moving here to the US. Back home we would just peg all our clothes up and they would flap and dry in the Aussie breeze. At the time it was such a tedious chore. It's funny the things we miss...
Since I am homesick, naturally I turn to comfort food. I love to cook and bake, but this week I have done it more than usual. Food is definitely comforting to me. Pretty much all food can be Comfort Food to me - just the act of cooking or baking and then eating it is really therapeutic.
What's your Comfort food?
Have a Fun Weekend.
