What are some of your favorite comfort foods? For example, my favorite foods overall might be filet mignon, king crab, stuffed sole, baby-back ribs, tiramisu, and so on... but these aren't things you normally eat at home, with your pajamas on, watching a good movie. Or at the table with your family, casually talking about the day.
Comfort food helps you when you feel down, and it's usually fairly simple. It may also conjure fond memories for you because it was something you ate growing up. Here are some of mine, in no particular order:
- Kraft Macaroni & Cheese
- A yummy homemade sandwich
- Beef stroganoff (my mom used to make it and it was my fave)
- A homemade hamburger
- Chicken noodle soup
- A chocolate milkshake
- Fish and chips
- Clam chowder (New England style)
- Scrambled eggs
- Fried chicken
Notice I only have one sweet item on my list. I quite expect others will have more! Comfort foods don't have to be entire meals...
