5 Recipes that Always Help Me to Get Over a Breakup
When I first find myself in the throes of a breakup, my body shuts down. Even the thought of food, at first, is difficult. My stomach is just as twisted as my heart, I find myself in my bed for too long, and honestly, when I do force myself to eat, I can't even keep it down.
But once the first wave of despair lifts, and I'm able to think about food again, I indulge in my favorite - often made-up - concoctions. I actually only eat the following five recipes for weeks because of the intense comfort they bring. Eventually I start eating other things again, but these have always been my go-to recipes that, for one reason or another, manage to at least numb the pain inside. Maybe they'll numb your pain too. Or maybe you'll just find them yummy. Either way, here they are, with detailed directions!
This recipe got me over my high school breakup. My mom made these for me, and I ate them by the handful. To this day, I still make them when I feel homesick or need to lift my spirits.
1 can of crabmeat
6 English muffins
6 ounces of Wise Pride cheese spread
2 tablespoons mayo
3/4 of a stick of butter, softened
Mix the crabmeat, cheese, mayo and butter. Then spread a decent layer on the halved English muffins and cut into six triangles. Next, and this part kind of sucks because it involves waiting, put the hors d'oeuvre on a cookie sheet and freeze them for about an hour.
When the hour is up, take those bad boys out, toss them under the broiler until golden brown, then chow down.
