What makes you feel like you're in your Momma's arms when your feeling blue?


Mine is hot meatloaf sandwich and a bowl of tomato soup.

Maybe a little. I talked to Mom earlier this afternoon and got a sudden hankering for meatloaf sandwich.

We have a running joke in my family.  Whenever we took our elderly mom out to good restaurants in her later years, we'd have to read the entire menu to her since her eyesight was gone. 

She'd ponder the options for a minute, then say "Well... do you suppose they'd make me a grilled cheese sandwich?"   :lol:

Nothing much really makes me feel "at home" , but I do have to admit I like corn dogs when I'm on the road. Don't know why but I do?

It's relatively new to my kitchen repertoire (within five years), but I must say my Chicken Fajita Chowder is pretty damn comforting. A hot bowl of it with a wedge of cornbread on the side? Xanadu!

As for something Mom makes...well, actually it's something Dad makes...beef barley soup. Nom-nom-nom!!!

Braciole and Lasagne. Both are pretty labor intensive and are only made for large family gatherings.

I miss my mom's eggrolls.  I haven't had one since I moved out of the house for college.  Restaurant ones never taste the same, since she doesn't put peanut butter in hers.  She used to make them in huge batches, and then freeze them individually so you can pull out as many as you need for a meal from the freezer.  We'd make a stir fry and fry up the eggrolls in the electric skillet.  Heaven!
She's got a worm in 'er belly? That's disgusting! That's interesting, but very disgusting.

Pot roast with the vegetables, usually potatoes, carrots, quartered onions, and celery, braised in the same pan.  That was a pretty standard Sunday dinner.  Mom would put it in the oven before we left for church.  When I got out of the Marines and started living on my own, I missed those familiar foods and that caused me to decide that I needed to learn how to cook.

Tomato soup and grilled cheese.

Cheese soup and toast strips.

Soft boiled egg and bread.

A good bowl of hardy-but-not-too-hot chili.

My Mom's sausage and zucchini soup in the winter with toasted sourdough bread.

My wife's ham and cheese biscuits with scratch-made crab chowder. 

My grandpa's pork tenderloin cutlets and mashed garlic potatoes.

Any loaf of sourdough bread fresh out of the oven.

Mom's meatloaf sandwich - cold slice or two of meatloaf, ketchup, white bread.

Now, my favorite comfort food is pulled pork sandwiches. 

ALthough any sandwich will likely do...

You must be English. Judith and I grew up on roast beef, roast tatties and Yorkshire pud's too.

Pizza is a big comfort food for me too.  But, it's not the comfort food I think of in the fashion described.  That would still be my meatloaf and mashed potatoes answer from before.

Pretty much anything my mom cooked when we were growing up. She never met a living plant that she couldn't kill but put her in a kitchen and just wait for the magic.

Absolute favorite? Have to go with chicken and dumplings. Fortunately my mom taught us how to cook and I user her recipes. It's never quite the same but it's close enough for comfort...
