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.

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.

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

Luvs, My mom used to make a dish she called city chicken. I've asked for the recipe but, she can't remember making it or what was in it. Do you have a recipe that you could post. I remember really loving it as a kid.

Thanks, Trish

pdswfe,
they have a pre-packaged city chicken meat in the grocery store. it's veal and pork cubes with little sticks. but my Dad just uses country (pork) ribs. you soak wooden mini-skewers, then cut the fat from the ribs, cube the meat (about 1"x1"), thread about 4 cubes onto each skewer, dip it into slightly beaten egg, then in seasoned cracker meal. shallow fry till nice and golden brown, drain on paper towels, and lightly salt immediately.

i saw them on tv last night using ground meat. i don't know about that.... they didn't look very good.

My top three comfort foods...

vanilla ice cream,
warm chocolate pudding
and
almost any type of warm home made soup. Chicken noodle is the best.

I used to love those! I'd order it with out the nuts and have them add extra fudge though.. so I guess, I really love hot fudge.

Dad and I used to order hot fudge sundaes with out ice cream too. Chocolate is so good. Think I was 13 the last time I did that.

LOL! Pds, the middle school I went to was 150 feet from a Dairy Queen! We ravaged that place! We could see the employees go into panic mode from the second floor when the school bell rang! I also miss Snicker's Blizzards. 8)
