Default Comfort Food (R)

Ok, we have discussed life, beverages, dating, and unwinding. What's everybody got in the fridge?

For me

1. Sushi
2. Food in general
3. Food shared with someone you care about (should be #1 but this spot is mostly vacant right now)
4. Something someone else cooks!

Default Comfort Food

Growing up in West Virginia, I still have one dish of "poor folk food" that I really enjoy, it is a simple dish -
Green beans, potatoes, corn and ham as a simple style soup. Top that with a great cold beer and a hunk of homemade bread I am really in heaven.

Everyone always be safe

You already hit my number one:

1. Sushi (uni, OMG, or unagi, or sake, or hamachi ... nummy nummy nummy)

Past that, it has to be British comfort food:

2. A hot pastie (now, calm down, Mark, the kind with crispy pastry around a hot filling), chips (fries), and a cold Caledonia draft (oh, the longing to be in Scotland, now that spring is here ...).

3. Crumpets or toast with cheese, Marmite, and butter, and a nice hot cup of creamy tea. My breakfast most mornings these days, now that I have lots of time (sigh).

Or, last but not least,

4. Salad (caesar dressing) that someone else has to cut all the little vegetables for. My main stumbling block to good nutrition is the !@#$ time it takes to wash and cut up the damn vegetables.

My favourite comfort food after a bad nightshift is to get an egg mcmuffin on the way home from work.

Other then that, I love fresh baked bread (smells good, warm, delicious)... and cold beer on a really hot night. We always have a big summer oyster bbq. It is wonderful....

No heavy breathing - I knew exactly what you were talking about. I live in the UK from 1972-1976. There are way too many comfort foods from there that I miss!

I would have to go with a warm moist chewy chocolate brownie with chocolate chips in it.
