So, what’s your favourite comfort food?

During this Operation Cast Lead, my family has been eating bananas.

Yes, bananas.



And bran cake if I’ve made some.

And 60% chocolate.

So, I was wondering, what gets you through wars? Or times of prolonged stress.

Right now, I’m not talking about music (Rodrigo or Roy Orbison) or painting (tempera or acrylic) or long walks (orange groves or cityscapes) or any number of wonderful coping techniques. I’m just interested if you find yourself attracted to special foods.

What’s your favourite comfort food? If you’ve got one, please take time to answer. You will be contributing to a valuable source of reassurance.

Thank you!

    sounds like a delicious tea party. i’m relaxed just imagining the cloth spread out ready and waiting.

    oranges (chilled) and walnuts… mmmmm…

    and hot tea — my favourite is a blend traditional among the algonquin peoples. They mix blue vervain, lemon balm, catnip (yes!), oat straw, red bergamot, chamomile, hops, motherwort, valerian, skullcap, and st. john’s wort… They call it peace tea.

    Any kind of pasta and cheese. (but NOT mac-and-cheese from a box. homemade!)
