What's your go to comfort food?

Post by Maryalle » 02 Aug 2018, 23:31

Comfort food is one of the greatest categories in food, in my opinion. Everybody has a different one and because humans aren't just one-dimensional beings, every person probably has differentiating comfort foods that they go to depending on the circumstances.

My top 5 comfort foods, in no particular order:
- Burgers
- Sinigang pompano (a Filipino soup that uses the pompano fish)
- Sandwiches (specifically a Subway sandwich with herb and cheese bread, turkey, swiss cheese, tomato, lettuce, banana peppers, chipotle sauce, and mayo)
- Chips and dip
- Rice and any type of roll (spring roll, pork rolls, etc.)

Oooh that’s a good question! I do love comfort foods, especially when I am sick. My go-to comfort food when I am sick is probably soup with warm bread! But I do love mac and cheese or some good old fajitas.

Most of my go-to comfort foods are things that my mom makes. Homemade pizza and cornbread are my two favorites of hers. But my mom lives 6 hours away so I don't get those very often. I really like a big juicy burger, pasta with lots of cheese, french toast or pancakes, biscuits, and garlic bread. If I've really had a bad day I may just eat a whole loaf a homemade bread with lots of butter to make myself feel better.

Potato cakes, or I think they are called hash browns in some regions. I have eaten 20 at once when feeling very down...it helped at the time even if I felt guilty later! They go really well with applesauce, strange as it might sound.
