National Comfort Food Day

"Food, like a loving touch or a glimpse of divine power, has the ability to comfort." - Norman Kolpas

It's National Comfort Food Day!

What smells or flavors are conjured when I say "comfort foods"? To everyone, it's different (mine was "chin nuggies, fruh fries, and kepkep" when I was younger - so that's how I'll be celebrating today). But the meaning behind the phrase is the same: foods that have a sentimental value or fond memory attached to it. They don't have to be gourmet or expensive dishes (they usually aren't, unless you grew up on that sort of thing), but rather simple, home cooked meals (like chicken noodle casserole... happy sigh!).

What's YOUR comfort food of choice?

Happy National Comfort Food Day!
