Funny, I have trouble seeing anything covered with Tabasco sauce as a comfort food! To me, comfort foods are mild and soothing in flavor, not spicy or intense in any way.

Cereal.... oh man. Forgot about that. Honey Comb = LOVE for me.



Also, if I am feeling extremely depressed for some dumb reason, I will go on a coffee binge. I don't know, but I always feel good after drinking coffee.



Cheers.

Anything Thanksgiving-ish other than stuffing (and not meat obviously). I personally mix sweet potatoes, cranberry sauce, and dill pickles which my mom says is vile, but I think it's great.

That WOULD make it a wee bit more like the real thing now wouldn't it ;-) hehe.



Actually I am ashamed to admit that it is the one and only time I will use instant mashed potatoes ;-) Makes this even easier to make and a quick anytime meal ;-) That adds to its comfort-ness i suppose ;-)

Tesseract, I feel the same way -- Tabasco-coated anything would be more like discomfort food for me!

Almost any kind of tea, iced on a hot day and hot on a cold day. I love tea.



Oh, wait, comfort *food*...



Veggie chili or pea soup is always good on a cold day, especially with bread on the side. Very yummy.

I can see how spicy food is comforting. I didn't list any spicy foods in my post, but I know when I'm really down in the dumps and pitying myself alot, I want a ton of flavor without much work, and Red Hot does the job for me. Spicy food is good when I want excitement and entertainment from food.

Why, where else have you heard that question asked? In other words, of course!



April, I suppose it's because "comfort food" to me conjures up food I eat when I'm feeling physically ill-- most often recovering from a migraine-- and I can't stand anything strongly flavored in any way, whether spicy, tart, sweet, or savory, because it's likely to bring the migraine right back. I just can't have any strong sensory input of any kind. So all my comfort foods are bland and soft in both flavor and texture, like fairly plain cooked potatoes, soft white breads, plain buttered rice, etc. I can see how spicy food might be just the thing for someone needing an emotional pick-me-up.

I don't really understand the idea of "comfort food", assuming it is something you like to eat when you try to seek comfort in food, which I try to avoid.. err haha okay, so favorite foods are...



rice with nuts and dried papaya and home made peanut sauce *falls over*

choc and vanilla soy ice cream with fresh strawberries

oatmeal with brown sugar, cinnamon and raisins

cassave!!!



I am a big dried fruits & nuts fan over all.

That's pretty much the idea. Something that helps you feel comfortable when you're stressed or feeling icky. For many people it's heavy starchy stuff that makes one feel really full and sleepy after eating lots of.

Like the chicken fried "steak" (tempeh) and mashed potatoes, smothered in almond gravy, I had out to eat last night. Oh man it was good. And comforting.

Just to be clear, I really didn't mean to disparage anyone's preference for spicy foods. I think a lot of people associate the term with bland foods, but comfort food is a highly individual thing. I avoid super spicy things because they cause much more pain than pleasure for me (although I know some people get pleasure from the pain!)

7 years ago before I was veg my comfort foods USED to be:

baked mac and cheese...or any mac and cheese really (late onset lactose intolerance sucks ), sherbert...oohhhh how I miss you sherbert lol, my Grandfathers homemade pancakes and Egyptian eyes (kinda like french toast), my Grandmothers homemade spaghetti, my other Grandmothers homemade pierogis, poptarts, captain crunch and yoohoo.



Nooowww.... my tastes and my diet have just changed so much (for the better mostly...although I wish I were a little more lenient when it comes to sugar....to keep my sanity lol) so yeah, now my comfort foods are:

bushes vegetarian baked beans, falafel, butternut squash, turkish figs, peanut butter, stovetop popcorn, tomato or squash soup, apples (in spite of the fact they unfortunatley make me incredibly sick whenever I eat them ) veg nuggets and oatmeal with agave/honey cinnamon, mashed banana, and fruit perserves.



yum

I'm bumping this thread up because I'm going through a tough time right now. My favorite comfort foods are mac and cheese, lasagna, spaghetti, quinoa, veggie burgers, salads, fruit, brownies, cake and soda...I'm trying hard to cut the soda and drink more smoothies instead, though.

Anytime I think I'm perfect, I remember that my cousin lives on an island, and I've never walked over to visit her.
