Top 5 Thursday - Comfort Foods


My sister gave me apple fritters for Christmas and I'm finding it darn good. What are your 5 favorite comfort foods?
  1. Meatloaf, mashed potatoes and corn - An old staple of family meals. And better yet, the next day, meatloaf sammiches.
  2. Spaghetti and Meatballs - Another staple in my family. I'm spoiled, my dad makes it fresh.
  3. Oatmeal Bread - My mom used to make this every so often, it'd come out of the oven piping hot, cut a huge chunk of it off and smear it with butter. Mmmm, Mmmm.
  4. Diner Breakfasts - it doesn't matter what, but it has to come from a diner. A close second is 2 AM cheese fries and coffee.
  5. Home Made Pie - warm goodness.

Dude your first one is probably the absolute grossest thing Ive ever heard!! I once asked my Mum who on Earth actually LIKES corn!?! I think I found someone!!! haha. Meatloaf is okay but I have terrible childhood memories attached to it with the threat, "If you dont eat it all, youll have the rest of it for EVERY OTHER MEAL TIL ITS GONE!!!"

*shudder*

My comfort foods....

1. Cheese - I'm not too fussy about what type (Except I HATE Jarhlsburg). It's just gotta be cheese and it has to go nicely on crackers. Mmmm.

2. Chicken Pad Thai - When nothing in the world is making sense, the local Thai restaurant sure knows how to make my planets align again!

3. Chicken Vol Au Vents - There's always something that good ol'e Mum makes that's better than anyone elses!

4. Mama's chocolate fudge - HA! No one comes close.

5. Dad's BBQ - No Australian family should be estranged from this. My Dad cookes the best "barbie" ever! And when he does the bbq, I feel warm and safe! hahaa.

Nice to know your comfort foods! Mine are:

1)Mashed potato with lots of gravy, corn with it too (sorry Jess im a big fan)

2)hot apple pie with lots of ice cream and topping, just like the Hard Rock Cafe makes it mmmmm

3)fresh king sized prawns in cocktail sauce

4)Hot chocolate pudding with heaps of chocolate sauce, not the pudding thing you buy in the USA, this pudding is cake with sauce, I noticed in the USA pudding means something else

5)roast lamb with all the vegetables, which must have the mashed potato and gravy, peas, carrots.

Jess, you have the most fancy stuff for comfort food I've ever seen in my life.

Carmel,
I've been dying to try prawns. We don't have them around here.

Rick,
Sorry to steal your thunder, but you've been slacking lately with the top 5's. And coffee isn't comfort, it's a necessity.

Yeah, I'm a bit precious when it comes to food. Cheese and crackers are my entire life. Seriously. Camenbert? Brie? A guy could woo me with that stuff! hahahaha.

I don't eat enough and sitting down with a packet of chips and a tub of dip just seems so.... blah. Haha.

I like to eat in style. Nothing that a good plate Sausage sandwich from Dad's BBQ or a nice take-away container full of Pad Thai can't fix.

Oh my. Does this make me a snob?

Yum! Now you're talkin!

This is making me incredibly hungry.

As a matter of fact it does make you a snob, just kidding. Not at all. You are talking to the guy who drinks expensive bottles of beer.

Mmm mashed potatoes, ice cream (particularly ben and jerry's right outta the pint), and cheesesteaks (obviously essential). Basically, really heavy and fattening foods :)

Mmmm, mashed taters. Want to go for a cheese steak? I'm in the mood for one now.
