Comfort Food

I had a food texture discussion with a friend on Monday.  We’re very much alike in many ways, and share a lot of food common ground, so I was left laughing when she shared that she doesn’t like lima beans or cantaloupe.  (Squish = ick) 

True confessions?  I eat lima as a stand-alone meal sometimes.  I cook them in a little milk and butter… ahhh…  a big bowl would suit me fine right now.  Of course, mac ‘n cheese is probably at the top of the list…

But really, I have diverse food habits, so I’m curious… what are your comfort foods?

    I like protein and dairy for comfort. Of course, most foods just can’t be mixed, although I do adore some cottage cheese mixed in with fruit cocktail!

    Hazelnut chocolate torte. A really good really ripe peach or plum. Comice pears. Any pie made by my mom.

    Oh, I dislike lima beans… so much so, I pick them out of the frozen mixed veggies. Matt ends up with extra… lol. My favorite comfort foods are mac ‘n cheese, a nice slow-cooked stew, lasanga and pizza! Ok… now I’m hungry!

    Have had to make changes in my diet…so not yet sure what my new comfort foods will be. Thank goodness there will always be tea and dark chocolate!

  8. Chocolate Pudding Pie! Oh how I dislike those limas…

    Grilled cheese sandwich!!! When I’m sick, depressed, tired, anxious, even happy–I could go on and on because a grilled cheese sandwich works for me at any time. I especially like the ones DH makes for me!!

    sometimes anything that I didn’t cook. “Disgusting casserole”, meatloaf and baked spuds, and lima beans. Man I love lima beans – home cooked with ham. But I have been known to just pop the top on the can and eat those for lunch – heated, of course. g

    I like limas too. Don’t have them often (they are on the no list) but when I used to, I would blanch them and brown them in a Pam coated frying pan. Crunchy on the outside, soft inside. 🙂

  12. Kathy says:

    Probably my mom’s spaghetti & meatballs. But really, if I am stressed out or sad or angry, my appetite completely goes away.

    I will add jello to my previous comments. When I had knee surgery last fall, it was scheduled for late in the afternoon, thus I could eat a “liquid diet” before 7 am. Man, that jello my mom made was so good!

    Hmmm… I wonder where the comment I left yesterday ended up. I’ll bet someone somewhere is wondering why I sent them a note that I liked lima beans. The internet is a strange and confusing place at times.

    I’m with your friend on the cantaloupe, texturally it just makes me want to hurl.

    When I used to think that food and I were friends, I had many comfort foods. Now that I think of food more as a requirement and less as a joy, it’s more difficult to look to food as comforting. Now . . . fried eggs, with the yolk still runny, a good bowl of soup, or some cobbler.

    Warm buttered popcorn is a comfort food for me or guacamole and chips ~ yummmy! Chan it sounds like some momentous changes in your life…. opening the door to new possibilities ~

  17. Fried chicken and macarons…Weird? Haha!
