hey kirk! i know this is absolutely wrong and maybe doesn't even qualify as food, but when i'm stressed out and i need something to munch i can eat my way through a ten pound bag of ice. i actually broke a tooth that way, so now it's more like a ten pound bag of partially melted ice.

other than that, soup maybe. rice maybe. soup with rice maybe.


Eggs FTW!
How funny eggs and rice is my so time favorite, especially easy over.


Fried rice and Spam...

or chicken arroz caldo or chicken tinola


Aw, sad-face egg!

My comfort food (which I am eating right now) is rice noodle soup, with nappa cabbage that's been cooked until it's super soft. Guaranteed to make me feel better!


My all-time comfort food is leftover rice cooked with scrambled eggs that have soy and sugar added. My mom used to make it for me when I was sick. Now I make it for myself when I'm under the weather.


something with pork belly...

Wandering Chopsticks

I like the fried egg and rice combo too for comfort food. Fast and filling.

I also like baked lemon pepper salmon with rice and sauteed bok choy and scrambled eggs with fish sauce on the side. Always that combo together for some reason.

And chicken noodle soup with alphabet noodles.


Hi Santos - If you eat it (or heck maybe even drink it) and it helps you, I guess it's comfort food. A ten pound bag of, that's a lot of trips to the bathroom! ;o) Also, doesn't your teeth hurt after a while?

Hi Billy - Eggs seem to usually figure in somewhere.....

Hi CC - Spam and fried rice sure fit the bill....of course, minus the easy over egg for you! ;o)

LOL Tofugirl! It just seemed apt somehow. It's nice to hear from you, I hope all is well.

Happy Holidays AZ! Never thought of using sweet soy with eggs.....I'll have to try that.

Anything with pork belly Kat! Anything... ;o)

Hi WC - That's quite a combo! Chicken noodle soup with alphabets takes me "back to the womb".....


What was the penultimate protein?

I had to look up chicken tinola. And it happens to be one of my favorites too (especially for a cold). I just didn't know what it was called.

Pork/seafood chow mein!


Hi Jan - You mean the red cooked oxtail?


The soy sauce egg could be used as a Rorschach test for your readers :)

Do you have an easy recipe for the egg custard? Mine always comes out wrong - i think i steam it long or don't have the ratios right or something.


What's your preference - salt or soy sauce?
Sometimes I do one of each on my easy over eggs with pepper.


It sure could Faye! This version the Missus makes, because what I make is Japanese Chawan Mushi and She doesn't like that.

Depends on how I feel Billy! I guess I must feel one way or the other as I've never done "one each"!


The glistening cartilage should have tipped me off. I guess I'm just used to seeing it in the color that I make it.


I'm also an egg person when it comes to comfort food... Japanese curry with a fried egg. Braised pork belly with marinated eggs. Steamed ground pork patty with an egg on top. Instant noodles with an egg... oh wait, that was my college self :P


Every other Sunday morning, my son asks for spam, garlic fried rice with soft over-easy eggs with crunchy edges. My comfort food has become his as well!


Hi Jan - Here's the recipe in case you want to try it:

LOL Jinxi - Instant noodles = College life! Egg seems to at the center of comfort food for many.

Man, it's been so long since I've had Garlic fried rice, now you've got me craving it! Happy Holidays Jack! I hope all is well.


When the winter months start to close in, I start to salt some duck eggs; about four weeks normally does the trick.
Sometimes, a single boiled salted duck egg is all I need to devour two quick (Chinese) bowls of rice.


it's just over a gallon of water (if unmelted) and i can taste my teeth fillings so i try not to do it all that much. it used to be twice a week, now down to once a month or so


Hi Peter - Now that's totally comfort food! goodness! I'm glad it's only once a month or so!
