    What is your comfort food?


    My wife was watching the food channel, and comfort foods came up. What are comfort foods? They are foods that soothe the psyche by reminding us of comforting childhood memories. For most of us, these foods are far from gourmet and generally epitomize home cooking. They invoke feelings of nostalgia, safety, and security. Some examples are: meatloaf, pasta, fried chicken or waffles.
    What are your comfort foods?

    For me, the comfort comes from drink rather than food, such as a good cup of coffee. I can't think of any food that gives me the same level of comfort, but I'll come back and post them should I think of any.


    Edit: as a child I found some comfort with banana pudding.

    What brings me back more memories are homemade flour tortillas with beans and chorizo, also "gorditas de azucar", some kind of sweet biscuit traditional in México.

    For flu and stuff relief I like "Sopa de Tortilla", am I mexican or what?
    (Sopa as in soup, not that other SOPA )

    It's been a long time since I had really good bread pudding, but yeah, I agree that it's hard to beat when you do find some that's good. Most commercial establishments seem to mess it up quite often by making it too sweet, or at least the ones around here do.

    As a Southerner, grits are always a comforting choice. When I went to school in Boston in the 1970s, you just couldn't find them, nor did I expect to. One morning I went down to the school cafeteria for breakfast and the guy in front of me asked one of the cooks in a heavy Long Island accent... "What is that white stuff next to the hash browns?" The cook replied, "Why honey, them's grits!" I think I cried right there.

    Pizza is what I crave. It makes me feel better when nothing else can. A close second is spanish rice like my mother used to make, with lots of ground beef, chili powder, onions, and cheese all baked together.

    Chili. A good bowl of thick and spicy chili.
    If it's made right, I can eat that stuff year round.
