Oh hell, all this is making me hungry!

Have you tried a peanut butter and grated carrot on granary bread sandwich - yum.
Never heard of the p.n. butter/carrot combo before. Will try it sometime. Sue Grafton's private eye Kinsey Milhone likes peanut butter and pickle sandwiches. Haven't done that either. And some heresy: don't like PB&J.

My comfort food is a plate of bacon & eggs, toast and slices from a good tomato out of the garden.

Grilled cheese sammies and tomato soup, with crackers.

Ruffles Sour Cream and Onion chips dipped in cottage cheese. I could live on the stuff, but have banned the SC&O chips from the house.

I like those smashed into a tuna sandwich!

Tuna sandwiches. The plainer the better. Tuna, mayo, bread. Now, if it's for lunch, then other stuff can be added, but for comfort, simple.

PB & J.

Cold boxed cereals-- Wheaties, wheat chex, rice krispies. I seldom buy this.

Good question Mr. Hoot.

I guess it depends on if I'm feeling lazy or not.

When I'm lazy a Tuna Sandwich is simple and quick.

Tuna, Mayo, Sweet Relish, and Salt & Pepper. On a soft white bread. Toasted or not depending on my mood.

Chips added if I have them and remember.


If I want to cook nothing spells comfort like a good burger with home made fries. A salad on the side with whatever dressing I'm in the mood for and have the makings for.


And never underestimate a good hotdog to hit the spot.


All easy to fix but they all seem to satisfy the need.



And go ahead and think. We won't tell anyone.

Here at Casa de Hoot, one of our most favorite things is mayonnaise biscuits.
Now, afore y'all turn your noses up, take a look at the recipe straight from the Duke's Mayonnaise website. It's very easy and mighty tasty!

Basic 3 Ingredient Drop Biscuits
I am going to try those biscuits - they sound good.

For me it's a simple fried egg and a slice of toast with butter. It's something my Mom always made for me when I didn't feel well and it's become my "feel good" comfort food.

Scrambled eggs on a (Birds Eye/pre-made) potato waffle.

I think PB & carrot is my invention but I could be wrong
