As promise here are some of the comfort foods that others have emailed me.
Rebecca in Michigan says, "My comfort food is "Sweedish Pancakes" Mom or Dad would make them for breakfast on Sunday mornings. It was the BEST way to wake up as a kid."
(She even included a picture of them.) Well, Rebecca, I must admit that "Sweedish Pancakes" are also a favorite of mine. Teddy just made a pan the other morning.
Laurie in Michigan says, "I'm very sorry, but your milktoast and poached eggs look and sound revolting. I almost got the heaves looking at the blog.......For me, I guess stuff like Kraft macaroni and cheese, sandwich spread at the deli with "mystery meat" leftovers, pizza rolls..... the more processed, the better!"
Sorry Laurie! And as for processed cheese...I don't think so! Give me an aged cheddar or some English Stilton.
Pat in Wisconsin says,"...ice cream is a good comfort food."
Agreed! How about a double dip of Leelanau black cherry ice cream on a waffle cone?
And finally Anonymous in Michigan says,"...I've had many a 'milk toast/poached egg'...'Must be our mothers knew each other, huh?"
So apparently it's just "different strokes for different folks."
