My mama was the ultimate cook when it came to preparing comfort food for me, my cousins, or anyone else that showed up at her door.
It didn’t matter if I brought three of my friends over to her house for dinner after school, she would always hop right up and make something in the kitchen in no time. I never understood how she could make such delicious meals so quickly, but I wasn’t going to complain! One day, myself, my sister, and my oldest cousin all showed up to her house early from school sick with the flu. We had been to a sleepover a few days later so we obviously had picked up the same sickness.
When she suggested food, we could barely hold our stomach contents in. She said, “Don’t worry girls, I know just what you need.” She went into the kitchen, and after we all took a short nap, she came out with this great smelling BBQ Pineapple Baked Chicken.
It was just like this one from Facebook. I went from not wanting to eat at all, to gulping down two whole servings! It was so tasty.
I went down for another short nap, and by the time my parents got there to take us home, I was already feeling much better. It was like a miracle food.
