The ultimate comfort food, macaroni and cheese is also the salvation of many a mom

placating a finicky toddler.

 

Nothing particularly American about pasta and cheese — except for the fact that on a

European trip, Thomas Jefferson liked a certain noodle dish so much he took notes and

had it served back home at a state dinner as “macaroni pie.”

 

Jefferson’s cousin Mary Randolph included a recipe for “macaroni and cheese” in her

1824 cookbook “The Virginia Housewife.”

 

So whether you’re eating a gourmet version by one of the countless chefs who’ve put

their own spin on it, or just digging like a desperado in the pantry for that box of Kraft,

give mac and cheese its patriotic props.

Meatloaf 강서오피 오피쓰 강서건마 opss4.com

The most humble of comfort food. Who would have imagined when the recipe for

“Cannelon of Beef” showed up in Fannie Farmer’s 1918 “Boston Cooking School Cook

Book” that every mom in America would someday have her own version?

 

Fannie made hers with slices of salt pork laid over the top and served it with brown

mushroom sauce. (In her day, you had to cut the meat finely by hand; the advent of

commercial grinders changed all that.)

 

However your mom made it — we’re guessing ketchup on top? — she probably served that

oh-so-reliable meatloaf with mashed potatoes and green beans.

 

And you were probably made to sit there, all night if need be, if you didn’t eat all your

beans. A better threat might have been no meatloaf sandwich in your lunch tomorrow.

Jambalaya, crawfish pie, file gumbo … what dish could be so evocative that it inspired

Hank Williams to write a party song for it in 1952 and dozens more to cover it (including

everyone from Jo Stafford to Credence Clearwater Revival to Emmylou Harris)?

The sweep-up-the-kitchen cousin of Spanish paella, jambalaya comes in red (Creole, with

tomatoes) and brown (Cajun, without). Made with meat, vegetables (a trinity of celery,

peppers, and onions), and rice, Louisiana’s signature dish might be most memorable

when made with shrimp and andouille sausage.

Whatever the color and secret ingredients, you can be sure of one thing when you sit

down with friends to a big bowlful: son of a gun, gonna have big fun on the bayou.

Jerky 강서오피 오피쓰 강서건마 opss4.com

Dehydrated meat shriveled almost beyond recognition — an unlikely source of so much

gustatory pleasure, but jerky is a high-protein favorite of backpackers, road trippers, and

snackers everywhere.

It’s American food the way we like our wilderness grub — tough and spicy.

 

We like the creation myth that says it’s the direct descendant of American Indian

pemmican, which mixed fire-cured meat with animal fat.

Beef, turkey, chicken, venison, buffalo, even ostrich, alligator, yak, and emu. Peppered,

barbecued, hickory-smoked, honey glazed. Flavored with teriyaki, jalapeno, lemon

pepper, chili.

 

Jerky is so versatile and portable and packs such nutritional power that the Army is

experimenting with jerky sticks that have the caffeine equivalent of a cup of coffee.

However you take your jerky — caf or decaf; in strips, chips, or shreds — prepare to chew

long and hard. You’ve still got your own teeth, right?

Pot roast 강서건마 강서오피 오피쓰 OPSS4.COM

The childhood Sunday family dinner of baby boomers everywhere, pot roast claims a

sentimental favorite place in the top 10 of American comfort foods. There’s a whole

generation that would be lost without it.

Beef brisket, bottom or top round, or chuck set in a deep roasting pan with potatoes,

carrots, onions, and whatever else your mom threw in to be infused with the meat’s

simmering juices, the pot roast could be anointed with red wine or even beer, then

covered and cooked on the stovetop or in the oven.

SPAGHETTI AND MEATBALLS IS NOT AN ITALIAN DISH 강서건마 강서오피 오피쓰 opss4.com

Arguably one of the most famous “Italian” dishes in the world, I’m sure most of you

reading will have had spaghetti and meatballs at least once in your life. Unfortunately, it

is not an authentic Italian dish. In fact, you’ll likely not find very many pasta dishes

topped with meat, this is usually reserved for dishes cooked “al forno”. While we’re on

the subject of meat and pasta, chicken is something you’ll never see atop pasta in Italy,

it’s not a very popular meat in general.

Glycaemic Index

The glycemic index (GI) is a ranking of carbohydrates on a scale of 0 to 100 according to how much they raise blood sugar levels after eating. Foods with a high GI are quickly digested and absorbed which results in a rapid increase in blood sugar levels.

Low-GI foods are preferable as they are slowly digested and absorbed, producing a gradual rise in blood sugar and insulin levels. They therefore provide a continuous supply of energy from one meal to the next, which helps maintain energy and concentration levels and helps keep us feeling fuller for longer.
