Caramel, Chocolate and Salted Peanut Ice Cream

Kummerspeck: What’s Your Grief Bacon?

Kummerspeck literally means ‘grief bacon’. I also had no idea what it meant! It’s explained really well at and refers to the weight one might pile on from grief-based overeating. Obvious, huh?

We’ve all  been through it – those times where there is no better solace than indulging (or rather, over indulging) in fat-laden sometimes sweet often salty morsels of soothing deliciousness.

What’s yours?

How about crawling under the covers with a spoon in one hand and in the other, an entire tub of icecream studded with caramel, chocolate and salted nuts? That will definitely work for me.

  1. […] Stir in the chicken with seasoning to taste and heat through. Sprinkle in the parsley and thyme, and serve the soup at once. I added the barley and lentils to the recipe. You could even add quinoa. And any nice other veggie would be nice, too. Broccoli, squash, navy beans.I also find making my own pasta very comforting so I made whole wheat noodles for the soup. I’ll post that recipe later. What did the other members bring to lunch? Check out their links below. (I’ll add them as they post.)
