Comfort foods meme

Comfort foods. We all have them. Foods that make us feel all warm and cozy inside, not just because they taste yummy but also because they evoke memories of happy times and places. A hot dog at Coney Island. Your grandma’s secret-recipe chocolate chip cookies. Your dad’s chili. A Philly cheesesteak (street vendor only, please!). You get the picture…


Here are five of mine:

  1. Country-fried steak and gravy
  2. Warm peach cobbler with vanilla ice cream
  3. Fried catfish
  4. A mug of warm Jello after a day of playing in the snow
  5. Watermelon (with a little salt)
  6. I’ll tag five folks across the globe to get this meme started. Want to participate? Don’t wait to be tagged! Simply use this Technorati tag: comfortfoodscomfortfoods08 (thanks for the suggestion, Miguel!)
