    B&J's Coffeee Heath Bar Crunch ice cream. Price Chopper is running a BOGO special this week, and with the election today... I may need something to tide me over while watching the returns come in tonight.

    Homemade chicken and dumplings, my mom's beef vegetable soup, and freshly baked yeast bread with butter.

    For something quick my choice is a grilled cheese sandwich, preferably with a mix of cheeses.

    For a longer cook meal: lasagna, made a day ahead so all those wonderful spices, sauces, meat, mushrooms, and veggies meld together.
    I meant to take the high road.... but I missed the exit.

    Since I'm Chinese, steamed pork buns. Soup dumplings are even better!

    Cheesecake! Specifically I love the fudge brownie cheesecake from Cheesecake Bistro. It is a normal slice of cheesecake but with big pieces of brownie sprinkled all over and hot fudge drizzled on top with whipped cream. YUM!

    Together??

    For me it depends on what I need comforting from. If it's general feeling blah / tired / ennui, then definitely mac & cheese. Hands down. If I need more instant gratification, then cheese-on-toast.

    But for comfort from a cold/flu, nothing beats soup. Creamy squash or tomato, or tomato rice, or miso, or broccoli & corn, or yam & coconut, or hot and sour ... or just about any other kind of vegetarian soup will do.

    I don't consider chocolate a comfort food. It's a basic food group.

    Chocolate does nothing for me. Sure, the odd brownie packed with walnuts and topped with fudgy icing is enjoyable, but given the choice, I'd take a bag of chips and tub of sour cream any day.

    But I'm with those who support vodka as a food group - and don't forget the health benefits when fruit juices are added.

    Exactly. The potato is your mother in vegetable form -- your mother when she was being nice and comforting and not nagging you.

    Maybe the potato is your blankie.

    I'll never look at a potato in quite the same way again. ( I wish I could stop eating so many of them.)

    I have to ration potato consumption. Especially with the mashed and baked ones, which actually are a delivery system for butter.

    And sour cream and chives or green onions!

    Love the idea that it's your mother in vegetable form. Maybe not my mother and certainly not my mother in law, but as a concept

    at least with my own mother, who is not a great cook, I have childhood memories to warm me. But MIL, who has many outstanding qualities, is not the first person who comes to mind when discussing any kind of food, let alone one's favourite dishes
