Comfort Food

What's your favourite comfort food? That's not a question I have thought about seriously myself, but I know when I come across it. Although I have been living in Canada for 40 years, my taste buds still crave Asian food, hands down. The other day (another grey and dull winter day), I had Japanese instant noodles for lunch with spam, fried eggs, and broccoli, all served in my charming, personal bowl that has been with me for a good part of my life. Not the healthiest meal by any measure, but just looking at it was already gratifying. I couldn't help but pull out my phone to capture this mouthwatering sight. And the taste? Let's just say it was reeeally comforting.

Yummy instant noodles served in my favourite bowl. My kind of comfort food!

Looks delicious. My ultimate comfort food is Cuban Style Black Beans, Yellow Rice and some kind of seafood to go with it.

That sounds delicious too, but may take a bit more work to prepare, I guess.

Thanks, Pete. It's actually quite easy to make since it's just instant noodles. There are many kinds though. Don't go for the cheap stuff. 🙂

Benny you can NOT capture such deliciousness and not invite us smile  It Really does look good even though spam is not my got to protein. If I had to chose a comfort good I would say cooked pasta with butter,and lots and lots of fresh Parmesan cheese is  my favorite. My sister and I would have it as an afternoon snack when we would come home from school and it has always remained with me. Just like your meal its not the healthiest but one can not live on "healthy" alone. smile

Agreed! One should be allowed to indulge themselves once in a while. 😊

When you try Portuguese food you won't be able to eat anything else smile

I have tried Portuguese food when I visited Lisbon for work. Their seafood was amazing.

How neat that you have a personal bowl! I love noodles of any kind as a comfort food. smile Not sure what it is about them, but they always have a soothing effect.

I used to have a personal plate too, a deep yellow one. Between my bowl and my plate, I could tackle all kinds of food and soup. But then my plate was taken away when I moved to my present condo. 😞
