I’ve been fighting off a cold for about two days now and just sat down with a cup of Blueberry tea and some air-popped popcorn. That got me thinking about comfort food and things that always sound good even when nothing else does.
Anyone have anything that is an immediate go-to as soon as you’re feeling blah?
Blueberry tea sounds really nice! I tend to go for the herbal teas, my ‘comfort tea’ is Camomile, honey & vanilla - although anything with honey and/or vanilla will do. Yay hot cups of tea! You might want to try a little honey in your tea if you don’t already, I think it’s supposed to be good for colds.
Hope you feel better soon … and try not to drop any stitches if you sneeze unexpectedly!
I like a nice jasmine or green tea with nothing in it. As far as food is concerned I love my homemade matza ball soup if I’m sick. If I’m just kind of feeling down it’s gotta be my fried chicken w/collards, blackeyed peas and corn bread. YUUUUUUUMMMMMMY!!! Oh man, I think I feel the blues coming on.
When I have a cold I like to have ramen (you know, the kind that comes in a packet and you cook in boiling water). When I have a cold I like the chicken kind, because it has the same property as chicken noodle soup.
When I am feeling sick I love Campbell’s Chicken Noodle Soup with cinnamon toast. I know it’s a crazy combo but I just love it. Of course, I love toast in general.
My favorite comfort foods: chicken fried steak with country gravy and smashed potatoes, my mom’s chicken cacciatore with polenta, hot buttered popcorn, salami and monterey jack cheese with warm french bread, ravioli’s from my favorite deli in California, pepperoni pizza… I could go on forever!
my mom’s chicken dumpling soup.
Sapporo Ichiban ramen.
spaetzle with mushroom gravy.
aglio e olio.
buttermilk biscuits with butter and honey.
kook soo (I’m making this tonight for dinner).
I can’t believe no one said meatloaf, mashed potatoes and green beans! And this is a weird one but I really miss a fried bean burrito with a vanilla milkshake to dip the burrito in, that takes me back to when I was probably 9 or 10! Yum! and now I need to find me one…
