I’ve been thinking about comfort foods a lot. Probably because of all of the uncertainty.
When shit hits the fan I want something familiar. These foods have always been there for me for as long as I can remember – OK, so maybe Bangkok Thai Deli has been here for me for the past decade, plus, but still.
Each of these foods is something I’ve ordered at least twice during the pandemic (I think we repurchase a Top The Tater every other shopping trip). These restaurants and foods feel like old friends. Maybe they are.
Here’s my list:
Upon transitioning into a more traditional 9-5 office job after moving back to the Twin Cities, I’ve become obsessed with office shows.
Office Space and The Office have a whole new meaning. Pete doing all those TPS reports, Andy putting a sandwich into his disk drive to break it so he can finally get a new computer. . .some may find these shows stressful but I find them cathartic.
Corporate (2nd season airing on Comedy Central) is like a more modern version of The Office. Sometimes it’s a little too real.
I’ve been thinking about the last episode of Corporate The Concert all week. It so perfectly and so comically depicts that pivot many of us made moving between our 20’s and 30’s. That of chasing as many activities as possible after work to being completely fine with chilling at home after work.
