What is your comfort food?

Hello All,
The world seems to always be having a terrible, stressful event affecting our nerves and emotions. Some people can calmly handle the tide of bad news, others cannot. Also, we often have personal problems; as lonely souls or as couples, or families, we have nights of sorrow or days of darkness that tried our wills and strength. What food enables you to handle such moments, and what eatery is a good place do you go to renew yourself during dark times? Besides chocolate, when the world is going crazy, I find myself eating meats, no fruits, but meats. For comfort, I like to eat a hot dog and fries at Jesse's Quick Lunch in Harrisonburg, Va.. The food and atmosphere of this diner eases my fears and sorrows. What about you?
Take Care,
Fieldthistle

    Pho Ga at Pho 97 in Kansas City always makes me feel better. Chicken fried steak at the Hardware Cafe in Liberty, MO does the same thing. Wine in the privacy of my own home also helps. When I'm really stressed or depressed I like to cook something challenging that I haven't tackled before. This weekend I'm attempting to make as authentic a baguette as I can, which is a challenge. My husband agrees with Fieldthistle. He wants to eat a Chicago Dog and fries at Relish in KC. And tomorrow we are going to do just that.

    I gotta admit for the last few days, my comfort food has not been solids. It has been liquids and The Canadian and ice has done wonders. I hope this medicine does not have to continue but if it does, it works pretty well in the short run.

    I'm with you. Since Monday, my choice has been Negra Modelo with lime juice.

    Hi Neighbor!
    I work for Channel 29 in Charlottesville and went to high school for awhile up in Woodstock. Love the BBQ Ranch!
    My favorite comfort food is starchy stuff like mashed potatoes.
    And just a nice Duncan Hines yellow cake with chocolate frosting.
    Must-have-one-now.

    Mine changes, but Mac and cheese or mashed potatoes are pretty standard. Lately it has been ice-cream sandwiches.

    Dining out: The lightly breaded fried flounder appetizer ("Hirame...something"), fried shrimp balls ("Fried Shumai"), a sushi and sashimi selection, and a large Kirin Lager from Matsuya Japanese Restaurant in Florence, Kentucky.

    Dining in: A plate of black oil-cured olives, a hunk of Limburger cheese resting in the oil from the olives, a baguette, and a bottle of Samuel Smith's Nut Brown Ale.

    Also, Ben and Jerry have gotten me through many a crisis.

    My signature meal at El Patio restaurant in Capistrano Beach, CA. I've been eating the Chavez families food in the same building with the same paintings on the same walls since the fifties. That meal would be a chile relleno, two cheese enchiladas and a flour beef taco.

    Number 1 for me is a pot roast slow-cooked with potatoes, carrots, celery, and a whole onion. Mash up the veggies with a fork, and pour on the cooking liquid. Hold a slice of buttered bread in left hand for sopping.

    Dearfolk,
    Three possibilities, depending on mood, time of day, and/or day of the week:
    1) meatloaf with a dollop of white gravy on top at The Royal Cafe.
    2) hamburger cooked medium with melted bleu cheese, mushrooms, onions, lettuce and tomato, and with broccoli on the side at The Copper Creek Brewing Co.
    3) a good big chunk of livermush - straight off the loaf - when I'm really hungry.
    Comfortably, Ort. Carlton in Lovely Athens.
    P. S. I forgot: a pint of good ale at the aforementioned Copper Creek.

    In the barren suburban wasteland that is Columbia, MD, there is one bright spot: An Loi, which has great pho. I needed comfort the other day, and found it in the arms of a big bowl of soup. Yum!

    But I'm not too picky...Cheetos and beer works, too!

    Well ... beer ... :)

    If that's not available, I'll try a bowl of oatmeal, or a plate of spaghetti with tomato sauce and tons of parmesan cheese.

    I second Ellen's open faced hot turkey sandwich! Sometimes roast beef. Other favorites are meatloaf. All must have bread, mashed potatoes and gravy. Peas or green beans too!

    Holy Crap! That would certainly make the world go away. Isn't Goldschlaeger like 100 proof [:o)

    Cereal-Coco Puffs, Cap'n Crunch or Lucky Charms - especially if I pick out all the marshmallows and just eat them or pancakes smothered in butter and cinnamon sugar are my comfort foods. Just had the pancakes last night, unfortunately. Can't watch this tragedy anymore...it is breaking my heart...

    Out-Japanese family style food...not sushi. Grilled mackeral, agdashi tofu, and real ramen (not the $.10/pack crap in the grocery store) will trip my trigger. Or a four veg plate w/ biscuits or cornbread at a mom and pop place in the middle of nowhere on a two lane road.

    In-Country style steak & gravy, butter beans, lumpy mashed potatoes and biscuits. Strawberry pie for dessert.

    Meat (beef, chicken, turkey, lamb, meatloaf) with lots of GRAVY. Potato (baked or boiled/mashed) with more GRAVY. Green beans with – you guessed it.
    That’s comfort!

    Hot yeast bread right out of the oven, with a dollop of real butter and some homemade jelly.

    Hot homemade biscuit or cornbread smothered in some nice thick soup from a pot of pinto beans.

    Potatoes and onions fried together in bacon grease.

    My uncle's comfort food is something I've never heard of anybody else doing. He heats up milk and butter, sprinkles it liberally with black pepper, and crumbles up saltines in it. He calls it "cracker soup."

    SkylarOne, I like your uncle. And I also love breads with beans. Fresh bread with beer is also a delight.

    While The Man That Lets Me Live With Him has some serious issues with comfort food......he's been bugging me to make this dish for days now! My comfort food is really good homemade (preferably made by me) soup....minestrone, wedding soup, broccoli cheddar, navy bean, lentil, split pea, chowdah.....and the freshly made gumbo at the restaurant that our Mexican prep guy makes.....oh, it is to DIE for!
