Comfort Food

The pleasant aroma and pleasing texture of comfort foods
triggers fond memories. 

I have two comfort foods: French fries and chocolate pie. I know they have little nutritional value, but that doesn't seem to matter much. I'm not sure what subliminal memories I may be harboring, perhaps from my childhood, but I do remember there were never quite enough home-made French fries to go around at our house when I was growing up and chocolate pie was a rare treat. These "foods" still hold an unusual and illogical, if not mysterious, appeal for me. We eat for many different reasons and hunger is often not at the top of the list. Comfort is one of the common reasons.

What are your comfort foods?
Share with us what foods bring back fond memories
and pleasant feelings of nostalgia.
