I have to say, the fried chicken and mashed potatoes answer is awesome! And my mom makes a chicken and dumplings recipe that is to die for!! Apparently, I enjoy being comforted! LOL!! You have a good weekend as well!!
Hi suzzy, yes, you have covered my favorite comfort food and it is true, a lot are great any time whether needing comfort or not! Love the stretchy cheese on pizza ...the best! Thank you for answering.
Hi Sha, I can eat mac n cheese, but you have nailed it with the chicken and dumplings and corn bread!!! You have me craving some chicken n dumplings w/cornbread ...doesn't get any better than that combo! Watch out!!! Lol
Meat loaf! Whether I make it myself, my wife makes it, or I have it at a restaurant. I don't think I ever met a meat loaf I didn't like. A close second is baked or barbequed chicken thighs and corn on the cob. Homemade beef stew is a winter time fave.
At home it is ice cream or popcorn. Both are fun to eat slowly. At work it is some kind of chips. I like the crunchiness. All others would be a diet soda, yet that is a drink. Being diabetic I choose that because a candy bar is not a choice and that comes closest to it.
Hi tsmog, yes, there truly is something to hearing that crunch that satisfies. Popcorn is great and ice cream, although no crunch, it is always wonderful. I better watch my sugar intake too, but I do love chocola're candy bars.Wise choices are good.
Definitely rice....with a little butter....or with chili...or with anything. LOL. If I really want to comfort myself....vanilla ice cream with a slice of pound cake (can't have this hardly at all anymore.....too much sugar).
My Nana, Mom, aunts and now, Me, make a South Jersey dish called chicken pot pie (chicken bot boi), but not the crust pie, it is more like a type of chicken and dumplings, but it is warm, tasty and oh so yummy. It has been a family favorite for generations, there is nothing like it...it is our family's favorite comfort food.
Well, my oh my, sallieannluvslife, you, your Nana, Mom and aunts have certainly come up with a superb comfort food dish there!!! That would make an awesome recipe hub there ...hint, hint : ) I can understand why it is your whole family's favorite!
Well my answer is really going to sound odd after all of he delicious food that was mentioned here.
My favorite comfort food is Frosted flakes. Yes, i wrote that, but it is. It was always around, I could have it whenever I wanted. It is snack food,for breakfast or even for a meal we called Breakner (breakfast for dinner). If I was sick a bowl of sugary, crunchy flakes would appear on the tray right beside a small bowl of applesauce. Makes me think of home, Mom and family. That is the comfort in my unique comfort food.
Hi StoneCircle, I am so glad you did write Frosted Flakes!!! You did bring me back to childhood and that is comforting and mom too. Awesome! Thank is sweet about the applesauce too. I do not think it odd in the least bit. I have had "Breakner"!
Oh, you know it!!! And it is so readily available everywhere pretty much! When I was younger I did not care for dark chocolate, but I love it all now! LOL I love that ... a celebration all by itself, so true!
Hello Glenda, now your mother certainly knew how to comfort the family with such delicious food. Yes, how can it be perfect every time ...mothers have that special touch of love no doubt! Thank you for answering.
What is your "go-to" favorite comfort food? And why?I would love to know who eats what when and why; when it comes to comfort food... what is your go-to comfort food, when do you go-to that particular food and...
