    Comfort food is that one special dish that seems to make your day just a little better. It is usually very filling and doesn't go well with strict diets. My Grandma is from the south. She used to make amazing fried chicken and Biscuits that would make Betty Crocker jealous. When I think of Comfort food, thats what I usually think of.




    Although I can't forget that southern fried Chicken my Grandma used to make, I had a friend that made an equally comforting food. It was called "Molletes", A very simple meal that consists of Bread, a type of meat (usually Chicken, beef or pork), beans and cheese. I'm not sure what my friend did to it, but it was beyond amazing as well as very comforting. It's a traditional Mexican meal that her family used to make.

    So whats your comfort food?


     
  2. This was particularly true in the Navy.

    Peanut Butter and Jelly sandwiches.

    Whenever nothing on the mess line looked appetizing I'd grab four slices of bread, peanut butter, and grape jelly, and round it out with a salad.
     
  3. Mashed potatoes! With lots of butter and salt! I could eat that all day and feel super comfortable.
     
  4. “Who?”
     
  5. "I agree, training is useful. It should be noted though that the red flame burns really, really hot."
     
  6. Reese's.

    That or a good old-fashioned helping of Checker's fries.
     
  7. ....Reeses on ritz crackers

    or

    my famous Pink Sauce and 'hetti.
     
  8. What is this... "Pink Sauce and 'hetti" you speak of?
     
  9. Bacon. Nuff' said.

    Despite the fact it's enough calories to INFLATE A BALLOON, I like putting Cinnamon Toast Crunch in a bowl, and then Cookies and Cream Ice Cream instead of milk.

    But potato salad is my number one comfort food that won't cut a year of my life off, per bowl.
     
  10. "Spaghetti"

    I used to not be able to write out that word, so when I was younger, I only wrote the last part.

    It's famous. I'll put up a recipe later.

    Katsugi can vouch for it's goodness, as can many of my friends in RL.

    Most of the ingredients are easy to find too! Except for Chervil.... which is one of my favorite herbs.... because it's related to basil.... but it's sweeter, in a sense...

    WHAT?!

    I CAN COOK! SERIOUSLY!
     
  11. Chicken and Dumplings made by gramma does it every time. <3 My sister and I fight over them. >>;

    "Well, the alarm clock I fixed, had a trace cryosignature in the circuitry, as it would if hit with a blast of extreme cold. There is also the arrow thing. There were little clues here and there but, it was a guess. Also," He lifted a bit of her hair. "There aren't many people who look like you and blizzard with white hair in Baltimore. When she emerged, Dylan and I spent some time researching Blizzard, trying to figure out who she was, perhaps even help her if she wanted any help. We started scanning the cryosignature through the city, basically scanning for temperature anomalies in the city with extreme cold and/or extreme heat." He saw she was nervous. "It's alright, I'm not going to tell anyone. It's not my secret to tell and I'm honored that you trust me enough to tell me."

    He held her hand. "Thank you. I'll see you later." He smiled at her.
     
  14. Popcorn...or a fallback I think we all use: CAKE.
     
  15. The cake is a lie.
     
  16. Pizza with heaps of cheese; there's an Italian place across the street that makes an incredible 4-cheese.
     
  17. I totally have to say chocolate with this. Because well... I've got days where I just want to lounge in bed, and put on a good movie, stuffing my face with chocolate.

    Mmmm, chocolate.
     
  18. Kunari kiss him back deeply.
     
  19. Belle

    She smiled brightly "Shall we head out?"

    Blair

    She nodded and began to eat. She paused and said "I'll keep an eye on the emails today. And I'm hoping today will be peaceful for the most part."
     
  20. Belle

    She followed after him and pulled out a bowtie from one of the racks "God I love coming here." She commented before pulling out what she figured was an appropriate dress.

    Blair

    She chuckled and walked behind him, placing her arms around his waist "Mm, sure. Fun."
