    Last night I made popcorn....no, not the microwave kind, the real kind made over the stove heavily salted and topped with butter. Making that brings me right back to my childhood when my Dad made that for me and my Mom. It's instantly soothing no matter how stressful the time is at the moment. Anyone else have a food that brings comfort?

    Nothing that I can think of that brings me comfort from memories....

    ...but ice cream and chocolate chip cookies make me awfully comfortable. :p

    Actually no...I'm changing my answer to hot cocoa. No memory to go along with it....but I'm stickin with that. :p

    OOO! Hot Cocoa is a good one for me, too. My Mom and I always call each other on the first snow of the season and share a cup over the phone lines. We've done that for ages, and before I moved out she would do the same with her Mom :)

    Cherries. Everytime I'm having a really bad day, my Mom brings me cherries. I don't know why but they always make me feel better. :biggrin:

    Chocolate milk is the best tasting substance in the world. There is a whole industry devoted to wine tasting...I think there should be the same for chocolate milk...

    A good chateaubriand, coated with rosemary/black pepper/bread crumbs, pan-seared and oven-heated to rare, served covered with a nicely-spiced veal demi-glace -- just like the one I made last night. The wine, by the way, was Chateau Lafayette Poyferre 1999.
