What's your favourite comfort food?

Everybody seems to have a favourite comfort food ... one they cook after a bad day or when it's nasty out or when they just wanna remember good ole mom.

My previous favourite was meatloaf (with a jar of salsa mixed in). We recently found a new one ...

Ground beef ... very, very well browned
whole onion, chopped coarsely
whole whack of garlic (cloves are best, naturally)
seasoning salt

for the gravy, the easy way is a can of mushroom soup, for the purist, add flour to the ground beef, stir well, add spices (cook's preference), add a cup of water

veggies ... either frozen mixed veggies, or if you're ambitious, cut up an assortment of any kind of veggies

Cook till vegies are tender.

Cook up a package of medium sized egg noodles, add the hamburger stuff to the cooked noodles. Serve with homemade baking powder buscuits. Num!

For leftovers, put in a pan with real butter and fry. Even better the seond day!

I'm something of a traditionalist when it comes to comfort food. Nothing beats me mothers homemade turkey noodle soup made every thanksgiving and christmas. That and vanilla carmel swirl icecream with pumpkin pie.

Olive Salsa, and chips
Or... just the olives....
Or the olives with vodka....

Crackers and mayonaise with hot pickled peppers.

Carrot cake (that one's "normal" right?)

May I suggest that you use another pan to fry bacon, chop them into bits, and add it to your prawn dish. When bacon is combined with onion it adds much flavor to your prawns. And for extra flavor add Italian salad dressing . Hmmm, hmmm!

Eggo waffles- the flavored kinds... strawberry and chocolate chip are my favorites.

Also cookie dough, can be store bought since it seems silly to make cookie dough and not turn any of it into cookies.

Ice cream - any kind - even new kinds - preferably not too laden with stuff.

Rumaki - don't ask - most people don't like it

Carrot Cake -most people don't like this either.

Key Lime Pie

Mashed potatoes, and that's it. No gravy, and no special recipe; a bit of garlic is nice sometimes, but I'm happy with just plain old mashed potatoes.

Poached eggs on toast is probably my number one favourite comfort food.

For mindless noshing, food I can eat for indefinite lengths of time: a) peas in a pod b) sunflower seeds

White Spot. It has been a comfort food place for all my life. Okay, it's not a food, but they have food, ha ha. White Spot chocolate milkshakes, birdy num nums.

Snack Food

Haggis just reminded me.....when I just want to zone out I like to pick away opening those stubborn pistachio shells - ruins nails but I like the challenge of working to get at the food like you have to do with sunflower seeds too.

Have to limit myself tho ...

Yeah! I like pistachio nuts too. Yum, and my, it makes a mess. For some reason, so do sunflower seeds. Have you noticed? It gets everything kind of gummy, ie keyboards, coffee cups, cameras, remote controls, that sort of thing.

Zoned out describes it perfectly, I almost go into a trance with sunflower seeds, I can't stop eating them until the bag is gone. In order to ensure that I don't overeat the things, I get the little bags.

Here it is friends, from memory, secret until now, and certain to win the hearts of all those to whom you serve.

Dad's Super Secret Waffles

1 cup whole wheat flour
1/2 cup any other kind of flour such as blue corn, spelt, rye, white, hempseed, rice flour, etc...
1/2 cup any other flour as above
1 tsp or so baking powder roughly measured using the lid of the tin
1 healthy shake salt
Mix well with a silver fork and cut in up to 1 stick of butter.

3 eggs separated (reserve whites)
1 to 1 and 1/2 cups milk (cow, goat, soy, rice, almond, hemp... take your pick)
Whip these together (silver fork again!) and mix with the flours and butter only till ingredients are moist.

Beat the reserved egg whites till they are not quite stiff.
Fold gently into other ingredients adding in 1 cup or more of chopped nuts, raisins, blueberries, dried cranberries, etc...

Serve with butter and homemade jellies and maple syrup on your finest china with the best flatware.
