Ham and Noodles


My favorite comfort dish is ham and noodles. Pasta is a favorite food in the family and I love white sauces of all kinds. So just add a little ham and voila! You have the best dish ever invented!

I needed a little “comfort” after my second day of law school. I’m in for quite a learning curve, but it is exciting!

When I think “comfort,” I immediately think of warmth—which leads me to Ella Fitzgerald singing “I’ve Got My Love to Keep Me Warm!”
