Comfort Food

At times when I am in a rush
I find myself in a bakery
Just around the corner
From where my home would be

I grab a coffee to help me out
And if luck be on my side
Behind glass counter gloriously
There’s a pie to feed the family

Well, I am ashamed I must admit
For any pie – when I was but a child –
Would have been prepared so lovingly
By grandma who rolled the dough with care

The scent of pie
Would fill the air
We would wait quite anxiously
For mere taste of pie smelling savory

Times have changed
And time’s decreased
So to take me back
To my inner youth

There is nothing like
A pie from the bakery
With mashed potato on the top
Baked in oven until golden brown

So nowadays
When I am short of time
The scent of pie from the bakery
Fills my kitchen, and comforts me!

  1. What if I tell you I have never eaten pie. Neither sweet or savoury. I know, I know, I am missing out. I just never had the opportunity to find an amazing place to have my first slice of pie. After so much fuss, I want to avoid disappointments if it makes sense. Anyway, back to your post, lovely piece as usual. I really fancy a pecan and caramel pie (do people even eat that?).

    1. Pecan pie is my aunt’s favorite! We don’t get cherry pies here though, only apple, and apple and berry – my favorite sweet pie! Are there pies available where you live? Must be said, with the whole healthy eating regime, I don’t think they are the healthiest food choice on the planet πŸ™‚ thanks for your comments!


      1. Oh well, in my opinion, healthy eating involves eating a bit of everything! I don’t recall seeing pies around here but I will be more attentive. I would love to eat pecan pie, I am sure it is amazing. Apple pie, the original treat I always wanted to try it but never managed to make some.

      1. In my country, Indonesia, and specifically in one of its towns, Depok πŸ™‚
        Typically in my country, traditional foods are cheaper than the ones who originated from other countries (like pie, for example) πŸ™‚
