Comfort Food: When We Need a Little TLC

When it comes to comfort food, I have two go-to options depending on my mood and my willingness to leave the house.

On one hand, there’s nothing like some fast food goodness from Taco Bell*. Give me two soft beef tacos, no lettuce or tomatoes, a nachos supreme and a Dr Pepper, and suddenly the world seems a little brighter.

On the other hand, I also love a good bowl of home-cooked carbs. A bowl of vermicelli soup, spaghetti or rice (with nothing but butter) can be just as satisfying as a fast food feast.

Of course, everyone’s go-to comfort food is different. So, what about y’all? Do you have different comfort foods you turn to, depending on the situation?

*Yes, I'm well aware Taco Bell is not Mexican food. ;)

Beans and rice with soft cooked flour tortillas. And taqueria style pickled jalapenos and carrots.

I could roll with that. I prefer hot and sour but egg drop is never really bad.

Dressing with chicken gravy is something I enjoy any time of year, not just the end of year holidays. Sausage gravy and biscuits or toast, or hamburger gravy.

That she does not like but I love it and do make it.

I had to learn them both since it is 7 miles round trip and about $13 to get a pint of each. 2 pints at home cost less than the gas.

Wonton soup when I'm really sick. I know I'm "near death's door" when I crave wonton soup.

Otherwise it's a good stew or hearty soup.

It's a cold wet day so it's pizza day. Already set the dough to rise and I'll finish it around 3 or 4 this afternoon.

In Ohio we give awards for good bologna. Serve this on a platter with some cheese and crackers. Your day will be better.

I wish we could get ring bologna here but as I've said before folks here don't know how to eat. The last I had was years ago wife's friend brought from Minnesota or Wisconsin, Hormel brand. I can't even find it online.

Don't even need a grinder (I have NOT tried this though) as bologna is not on my list :rolleyes:

I have tried it but not sure if it was that recipe. The stuff was OK but not the pink color I expected when using Tender Quick.
I found the recipe I made.


This tastes nothing like the pink slime sold as bologna.
Maybe some large cans of Dinty Moore Beef Stew and Sweet Sue Chicken and Dumplings.
