Comfort Food

Tonight, Husband and I made Kung Pao Chicken - from a packet. My mom bought me some and sent them home with me when I went to visit them a while back. Kung Pao is one of my family's favorite was a normal rotation and all of us knew how to make it (follow the directions on the package, duh!). For me, it is definitely comfort food. So much so that I had seconds (I definitely didn't need seconds).

What is comfort food to you? To me it's pretty much anything that is comfortable to eat...anything that I crave because it is familiar...

My top 5 comfort foods (in no particular order) are:

  1. Cajun bean soup with sausage
  2. Kung Pao Chicken
  3. My mom's chili
  4. Hot and Sour Soup
  5. Pho
Yes, I do realize that 4 of the 5 are soup or soup-like, but I don't care...I love soup. Soup is comfort. Comfort is soup.
