Comfort Food

July 28, 2008

When faced with extreme stress or devastation, I tend towards meat and potatoes.  Meatloaf, mashed potatoes, sweet corn, or pretty much anything on the menu of the Moose Cafe.  Sometimes quantity matters more, and I simply go for the Mela lunch buffet to gorge and be somewhere pretty while doing so.  I suppose homecooked food is best, though not by me.  What foods comfort do you turn to when you’re down and out?

    This week, it was vegetarian Indian buffett. Delicious, endlessly available and pretty. Plus, they like to coo at my baby – no trace of snooty sneers.

    My traditional down-and-out binge is a pint of Ben & Jerry’s or Julie’s. The binge of millions. That or a pan of brownies — and I DO mean a PAN.

    For a quick comfort-food fix, I’m with Jennifer on the ice cream. When I’m cooking a meal (or going out for one) and need comfort food, it’s breakfast, no matter the time of day.

    And I’m with Jeremy on the breakfast.

    A huge bowl of Mint Chocolate Chip Ice Cream always sets my mood right. That and a good visit with friends?

    Chocolate; chocolate ice cream with huge chunks ala Ben & Jerry’s or just plain old chocolate ice cream; hot cocoa in the winter (not the powered stuff); Nutella toast; or if I’m a bit angry I like to throw in some ginicolada in the summer (Meyers, Malibu, & maybe a splash of pineapple) or maybe a simple Manhattan (hold the cherry and bitters). Cooking when I am upset is just a waste of energy as even the simplest dishes are out of my ability.

    Cheese. Mac & cheese or a lovely welsh rarebit. Or just a big wedge of gooey brie with an apple and black pepper crackers. Or, if I really need comfort, Mexi cheese dip in large quantities.
