Getting to Know You: Comfort Food

We've all had those days. A tough day on the job has got us down, family is on our case, and it seems like the whole world is spinning out of control.

When that happens, what we need is comfort food!










What's your favorite comfort food? What cozy memories does it bring back for you? Tell us all about it, and maybe we'll share...if you let us.

Type O is my favorite, but every now and then I get a craving for B-negative. It holds special memories for me.

I think I'll say mash potatoes. I play with it and shape it, that is as much fun as eating. G-Unc Will makes smell-worthy mash.

Bread and milk. weird but when i was a kid, for punishment. my mum would pack me off to my room without supper. Later she'd send up a bowl of bread and milk. I guess I was so hungry by then it tasted terrific and since then it has been my comfort food.

By the way, at that time I told myself that a swift spanking was the only good punishment. That way it was over with, I didn't want a repeat, and I didn't spend ages in my room brooding on how to get back at "them".

Welcome back, Goran! Wow, great to see you. Long time no rant.

I don't have time to be in character today, so I'm just posting quickly as myself.

Marenya's favorite comfort food is something I've dubbed "cloud pie" which is kind of like a cross between quiche and sheperd's pie. A cheese/egg combination with mashed potatos on top. I need to play around in the kitchen and develop a recipe, as I'd like to put it in the book.

Candy, I remember having bread and milk a couple of times when my grandparents were watching me and my sister, as kids. We thought it was so wierd, and cool, to eat that!

Red licorice. The girl next door has been writing to me here in Iraq and she sends it to me. Love that girl!

My favorite food is pizza with pepperoni and hamburger meat. With extra tomato souce. I love going to cici's. I feel that pizza should be served everyday. It is the best food ever. When I eat it my taste buds tingle. I make the pizza into a taco and eat them. It helps me to eat fast so I can eat even more. I some times savor the moment of the pizza when I taste it. Pizza is the best.
