9. Over a Million Years Ago, I Never Pho-Got You.

When your comfiest sweater just won’t cut it, a hot bowl of pho is the answer to the dreariest of days. All the noodles and meat and lime will be a warm hug while listening to the album.

10. All I Ask Is for an Extra Brownie

Chocolate in all forms should be consumed when listening to “25.” These brownies are super-thin, so you can eat a bunch of them and not even think about it.

11. Pancakes Are My Sweetest Devotion

A big stack of pancakes topped with a pat of butter and maple syrup will always be there for you when you need a big, carb-y hug. It’s the only way you’ll be able to get out of bed after listening to the new Adele album.
