Weekend Question Thread

Favorite comfort food?

Between a hideous back injury that knocked me out the first half of February, and back-to-back colds/flu/respiratory infections since what feels like November, I’ve lost about 10 pounds. BEST DIET EVER! It’s actually terrible, in that yeah, clothes fit again but I feel like shit all the time. Food doesn’t appeal in any way.

What do you like to eat when you’re feeling run down or need something cozy?

  1. French fries from Popeye’s Fried Chicken…they can almost cure a hangover by themselves. If they don’t give you a heart attack first.

  2. Potatoes and gravy — no contest. Now, nightshade family allergic, I have to settle for mashed white sweet potatoes. Failing that? Kraft Mac & Cheese — my last junk food rampart.

  3. Chile verde: best comfort food evah. During my New Mexico years, I learned to put potatoes in my chile verde, and that’s still the way I make it.

  4. Either biscuits and gravy, or beef burgundy over parsley-butter wide egg noodles. Or sometimes I’ll toast a big slice of french bread, butter it, rub it with a clove of garlic, and then ladle the beef burgundy over it in a bowl. Yum….

  5. Toast and tea. And when start to feel better, chicken noodle soup in the envelope!
