Can we consider chocolate milk a comfort food? I still enjoy a glass of chocolate milk from time to time. Milk, Hershey's Syrup, stir. Maybe those biscuits would go well with it, too
You got it Pac!
I love to dip double stuffed Oreo's in mine. What makes it a pleasure is that the Oreo's are from my secret stash. They never think to check the freezer or the crock pot.

It's a pleasure to get one over on them for a change.
"Heyyyyy, where did you get those Oreo's?"
What Oreo's? That's my story and I'm sticking to it.

If you like chocolate milk, try creme de cacao in milk. Tastes as good as chocolate milk tasted when I was a kid. It's called a brown cow.

This was a tough question for me. Just like pacanis, comfort foods are meals for the most part and take time and effort to make. Especially those that are my Mom's recipes.

However, he egg and lemon soup is relatively easy and always makes me feel good.

Two cups of chicken stock/broth, two ounces of dry angel hair pasta broken up into small pieces. Cook pasta in chicken broth until soft. Meanwhile whisk an egg with some lemon juice. Temper the egg/lemon mixture with the hot soup. Season and serve.

Certainly there's a lot more than this to comfort food but this is one that is quick.

That soup sounds good, Andy. I think I am going to try some un-tempered. I'll dribble the egg/lemon mixture into the soup as it's simmering. Lemon and chicken broth, good for what ails you.

It will taste the same but the egg will cook and be like Chinese hot and sour soup with egg ribbons.

Thanks, that's what I was hoping.
When I was a kid mom would take Lipton's chicken and noodle cup-a-soup, bring it to a boil and drop in egg/flour/parsley dumplings right out of the bowl with a fork. A childhood favorite.

If you don't have a lemon on hand, beat an egg with a couple tablespoons of grated Parmesan cheese and a couple of tablespoons of bread crumbs then stir it into the hot soup to make "rags". The Italians call it Stracciatelli or Rag Soup, it is tasty on a cold day when you don't have much in the house and you don't want to make a trip to the store.
