Beth Marie's blog was delightful. It always is, but this time she spoke of comfort foods. Since I have been heralding my home grown tomatoes, and trumpeting about food in general these past 2 blogs of my own, I am shamelessly going to borrow her idea! Comfort foods.
Of the list she put in her blog and recipes from the link she gave us, I was surprised that many of the top 25 weren't my top 25.
My top comfort foods entail the following: I love fried chicken, that's for certain and that was on the list. I love corn in several forms..on the cob or regular corn in a bowl. I love gravy of any sort. I don't hardly eat it but it is a GREAT comfort if I do. :-) I was desperate one time a long time ago, and got out 3 beef bouillion cubes, some water of course, a whole cut up fresh onion..a large potato, some baby carrots, fresh ones, and some frozen green peas. I boiled them all till tender..and to me, that's a comfort food but as Beth pointed out..we each have our own ideas about what that means.
I won't address desserts. I love 'em all. But for foods, real meal type foods, meatloaf is at the top of the list with mashed potatoes and corn in some form. As I told Beth, all carbolicious foods.
I love most veggies and if they are warm, I can eat a single veggie till I'm full and that's a comfort food too. I know..I'm deranged. I love roasted turkey a la Thanksgiving, dressing, cranberry sauce..all are comfort foods.
I love eggs in most forms and those too are..you guessed it..a comfort food. I eat one every day.
Boiled eggs with butter on 'em and a piece of buttered toast..ooo la laaa!
Oh well, I just wanted to throw in my choices. IF I were going to mention sweets, then ice cream is supreme followed by cake and then fudge. I don't know how I managed not to weigh the same as Godzilla. Self discipline I guess.
