For me comfort food is a good ole Sunday dinner.

Roast pork or chicken
Mashed potato with gravy
Two veg.
Cabbage salad
Rolls, biscuits or corn bread
Pie with sharp cheese or whipped cream

When I was a kid the thought of a meal like that got me through more than one long winded service!

More of a family thing for me (since we're Italian ;D ) but I love almost any comfort food...Lasagna, ravioli, beef stroganoff, mac n cheese, pizza...do desserts count? haha

Any food that makes you feel warm and loved is considered comfort food...dessert, crackers and cheese, crisp apples...it's whatever makes you happy!

I'm with the gravy crowd! When I was having some really bad kidney stone episodes a few years ago I had poor James running off to KFC for potatoes and gravy every couple days!

Mashed potatoes and gravy, beef stew, etc. are big-time comfort foods for me. Also macaroni and cheese, chili, homemade breads, and on occasion a pound box of See's assorted milk chocolates.
