    Default Your Favorite Comfort Foods

    One of my favorites is steamed Lup Cheong And Rice...

    Comfort foods are all about familiarity to what you like best, based on what you grew up with; most often very simple in preparation. No frills. Just stick-to-your-ribs goodness.

    Whether it be that Loco Moco from your favorite plate lunch joint down the street, mom's beef stew, or eating an entire tub of ice cream filled with chocolate chips, sugar waffle cone bites and caramel late at night in one sitting (as a confession, I often do that!). Here's an HT thread to share your favorite comfort foods!

    I like fresh fruit such as oranges, apples, bananas, and pineapples for everyday eats.

    I'm so envious, WB. I, too, love fresh fruit but my comfort food of choice, the one that somehow makes the world right is...

    ...come on, ladies, you know what it is!

    Chocolate!

    Ever since someone said chocolate is an aphrodisiac, everything has to be or have chocolate in it. It's to the point where I'd bet chocolate chip cookies without the chips would be a big seller to half the population, and you know which half!

    OP - Pizza and/or ice cream (not chocolate!), or pizza ice cream...

    Walkoff Balk, I eat plenty of fruits. Love it. My regulars include apples, nectarines and bananas. Always in my shopping cart at the grocery store. Great anti-oxidants and vitamin 'n mineral providers that keeps my system in check.

    Tutusue, I'm ok with Chocolate, as long as it's accompanied with CARAMEL!

    Getting back to 'savory' comfort food at its best, here's a great shot of a Teriyaki burger from Forty Niner Restaurant in Aiea...

    I like just about anything that can be found in a bakery: bread, donuts, pastries, cupcakes, cookies, cake. Doesn't always have to be chocolate. But I'm trying so hard not to eat that crap anymore. I've lost over 15 pounds since we moved back here and I'm determined to keep going.

    Edamame has become a big one for me. I used to take this to the beach a lot. Have edamame; will travel! Another one from Hawaii is brown rice, chicken, a sprinkling of cheese, and just a little bit of soy sauce. Man, I used to eat that all the time.

    Can't think of anything creative this time

    Testing to see if Albert's missing image shows up in a quote (his link was missing a "w" in the "www" of his url).

    Yeah - but it's incomplete - and HUGE - so I removed it from the quote.

    In other words - this post means nothing, so I'll give it a value by simply saying ... a grilled cheese sandwich. (That's my top comfort food.)

    Yikes, tried but failed to get that photo smaller. Okay, it's one of my favorite combos, but no need to be billboard size.

    Well - when you really love a particular food, and you want the world to know it ...

    Now, if Lurkah is lurkin' around here, maybe he can drop you a line and assist with the photo resizing issue...?

    Pizza is the best. Only the teenage mutant ninja turtles like it more than me I think.

    Found a nifty little shareware program that resizes jpg's, so let's try again.

    I almost said pizza; I typed it, backspaced, and changed it to grilled cheese. If that doesn't make pizza a close second, I dunno what does.

    Favorite comfort meal....roast beef, mashed potatoes and gravy, green beans.

    That one has a story, from my flight nurse days. The provision of this meal strengthened my belief that there are no coincidences in life.


    Rice straight from my rice cooker (cooked with a little salt and butter) runs a very close second.

    Chili - just about any kind, altho' I found a recipe in a Sunday newspaper insert a couple of years ago that's got great ingredients (including a little dill). Takes a while to "assemble" (as opposed to "cook"), but mo' ono for the extra effort.
