Favorite Comfort Food

  1. This topic came up in work the other day, When you're down, or need a lift, what "comfort food" do you turn to? The responses ranged from chocolate to mac and cheese. For me, I will usually put on a pot of homemade tomato sauce. The action of slow cooking and tasting the sauce, is very calming. But of course when I need a quick fix it has to be chocolate! So, everyone, what's your " Comfort Food"......

    My all time favorite comfort food is instant mashed potatoes with butter.
    It works every time. Even after July 4th when I had such a bad hangover I couldn't even sit up, let alone stand.
    (Note to self: drinking that much alcohol is a VERY VERY bad idea)
    After the mashed potatoes would be grits, with butter.
    Butter seems to be a recurring theme here.
    Also anything with cheese. Homemade mac and cheese rocks.

    My mom's mashed potatoes, and chocolate. And anything that's a cheesy/chicken/spicy thing. Nachos, quesidillas, etc.

    Mmmmm... hungry.....

    I totally agree about the cheesy spicy thing (although I'm not doing the chicken part anymore)... I was thinking of nachos and enchiladas and taquitos... and now I'm hungry.
    My best study buddy is Mexican and she makes the most amazing tamales, and homemade tortillas...
