What's your comfort food?

I like peanut and chocolate oatmeal cookies (I put pomegranate and blueberry granola in these).

Lucky me, that they cost almost nothing to make, almost gone now.

Very crunchy, so no good for your teeth Lacy.

You could probably soften them up by adding in coconut. One of the principal ingredients of an Anzac biscuit.

Beef brisket with carrots, mushrooms, onions, potatoes & gravy.

All my foods are comfort foods ! Why ?   I am grateful and lucky that I not only have food to eat and that I also have a choice and that my choice has been vegan for 50 of my many years.

Campbell's Clam Chowder (but not that Manhattan style <deleted>) I always have a few cans in the cupboard.

 

They reckon BC Ferries used to do the best Clam Chowder when the cooks were part of the company but now White Spot has the contract and its <deleted>. Weused to joke that all the barnacles that were scraped off during refits went into the pot. It was something to look forward to, which is why CC is still my favorite comfort food. 

Ah, fond memories of fish gumbo in New Orleans.

Funny that. My dream is to die at 76, boombooming a Nana plaza nymphet, just after a massive T-Bone and a bottle of Shiraz.

You will note that the OP and other contributors to this well thought and useful thread have posted pictorial representations of what their comfort food is.

 

Please don't disappoint us. Please?

I think the total cost of my egg souffle is about 6 baht, including electricity. The chocolate and ginger combo is more expensive, 140 baht.

 

My heirs would have no legacy from me with your comfort proposal.

The image in my head when I hear comfort food is mashed potatoes with gravy, but that can be many different kinds of gravy, and along with many different kinds of food. But the mashed potatoes and gravy is the anchor of the comfort.

Wow, "comfort foods".  This thread got me thinking/reminiscing/day dreaming.  The grey matter went through a full throttle self interrogation.  I love food, appreciate it, internally debate the experience: the great, the good, the bad the ugly.  I might not order it (again), but I'll eat it.

 

Interesting how resources drastically alter your immediate "comforts".  What's in the fridge, what's available at a local market/grocery store, what restaurants are conveniently accessible.  Back "home", comfort food was a mile high smoked meat with a half sour kosher dill, and a pile of fries (chips), or a massive medium rare rib steak, baked potato smothered in sour creme and chives with a huge Caesar salad.  Simple hamburgers and sausages on the barbecue...safe enough to eat medium rare?   A homemade caesar salad dressing made with a raw egg, fresh garlic, olive oil, an anchovie, etc...and safe to eat.  Wine...(it's a food group yes?)

 

Now, arriving home (LOS) from a project surrounded by beach, for hundreds of miles in all (well, 3.5/4) directions....my kingdom for simple slice of crispy bacon and a fresh salad that includes some form of lettuce.  Yeah, apparently my comfort foods have temporarily changed.

 

...and I'm extremely thankful for the choices available locally today.  Thankful that someone long ago, tripped over a bucket of rotting fish, and grandpa Somchai's sharp smelling toes, went up the chimney with him.

 

Happy Friday!

Toast with butter and Vegemite, yes. Dry Weetbix? You're a masochist.

Fray Bentos Corned Beef, chilled in the fridge, cut into thick slices between two thick slices of heavily buttered brown bread and lashings of HP Brown sauce.

 

I'll be indulging heavily next month 🙂
