Favorite "Comfort" Foods

There is some stuff that I would never think of buying, unless I am in a terrible mood, and am looking for "comfort".

Interestingly, there was an article in my newspaper which showed the better choices in fast foods in terms of calories, fats, etc. My favorite comfort food was listed amongst those that one should not even consider.

When I am in a really crappy mood, I will take myself to KFC, and get a Chicken Pot Pie. I always feel better afterwards, even though I know that it is probably doing nasty things to my arteries.

What are YOUR favorite comfort foods?

I like stuff like grilled cheese with a slice of tomato and raw onion, or homemade mac and cheese. I'm not big on sweets and I hate, hate, hate KFC. The only time I would ever, ever eat it is if I'm hungover, which never happens, so I don't eat it.

@Phoenix32890,
I was thinking chicken pot pie at first too when reading the title - although I've never had KFC chicken pot pie.

Steak. I can go a year or two without eating steak as I usually use meat in my cooking more as little bits in a big dish, rather than the main idea. But.. the day before a recent eye surgery, I bought a steak so I could look forward to it for dinner.

Indian food, particularly if it is rainy and cold and drear. Preferably at a good indian restaurant, with friends.

garlic mashed potatoes, even alone (with or without the wonderful meatloaf w/incredible gravy at the old restaurant, 72 Market Street, and the side of slightly buttery spinach. I had a thread on that once. Time and ingredient consuming recipe but the best ever.)

Custard, oddly. I haven't made custard in years, but I remember it well. And why not, she asks herself? Well, I'm not very into making desserts. But, hey, custard for breakfast could be swell.

@Phoenix32890,
Ice cream and cheeseburgers and various pasta meals with red sauce. Homemade meatloaf is a guaranteed comfort food as well.

Also, hummus is a comfort food to me.

Isn't that a bit difficult to eat? Do you use a chisel to chip of chunks of the lasagna to get a single bite. Confused

@tsarstepan,
I like all of those too..

I need to play with hummus recipes. I like it on whole grainy toast.

The meatloaf recipe I was talking about = http://www.thatsmyhome.com/momsdiner/beef/market.htm

@Pemerson,
Aren't you afraid you might chip a tooth?

Roberta took me to a dinner in Manhattan where I had really good meatloaf.
