more on comfort foods...

i'm fairly certain this subject was already brought up, but it's just such an
awesome topic, i wanted to re-kindle it. :D
i love my Dad's city chicken, my baked macaroni and cheese (it's full of butter and Cabot's Seriously Sharp and a milder cheddar and cream and whole milk), Great Northern beans with lots of garlic and black pepper (canned ones are the best imo), meatballs and marinara sauce w/out the pasta, stuffed cabbage rolls minus the cabbage, mashed red or Yukon Gold potatoes with pork chop gravy, and thick legume-based soups like split pea, lentil, and black bean.
these foods fill you up so fast, though, you know? then the other people in my family devour it all before i get a chance to have more later on half the time.


i believe that life would not be complete sans comfy 'ol tee-shirts, the Golden Girls, and the color pink
& rock on, PITTSBURGH-

Biscuits and sausage gravy are a great comfort food. Nothing like mopping up the gravy with your biscuit. Then washing it down with a cup of coffee. Yum!!

Big pot of refried beans. It's a terrible mexican stereotype, but really I cant think of any thing else that consistently makes me happy.
My english, she's not so good... I meant to say I did it with the malice of forethought.

I think I would have to say that my biggest comfort food would be a big pot of home-made hot chili.
