No, it's those plastic boards on the back of cheap cars driven by young dudes
My comfort foods are (in no particular order):
Cornish ice cream
Scones with strawberry jam and clotted cream
Chocolate (but not too much as it makes me really thirsty)
All of the above in moderation, of course!
If we're talking candy, my weakness are fruit jelly slices. (especially the homemade ones made by Boston Fruit Slices)
Me too! I just got one of her cookbooks and can't wait to try everything!
Yes, if we're talking candy.... fruit roll ups and gummi bears. An occasional chocolate covered cherry. Starbursts, jolly rancher-cherry.
My son worked at the Cavalier Candy company for a time and we got these for 1.50 a pound - they were all individually wrapped - these are SO good - my favourites!
Dear God, do I ever love these.
"Bouchées à la Reine"
I voted other, because for me my ultimate comfort food would be Chocolate Fudge Cake, either warm or cold don't mind. That massive chocolate hit never fails to make me feel better.
What is this? To me it looks like a pastry shell filled with chicken and mushrooms in a béchamel sauce? It looks fattening, like something my husband (Mr. Chef) would make!
Vouluvents, hang on, that's not spelt right... voul-au-vents, perhaps that's it. Anyway, they are indeed pastry shells, you cut top out of them and fill them with stuff. Quite a thing in the 70's....
You're bang on the money Neesy That's just what it is. My dad was a baker and he used to make those ( and a prawn filling variation) , I was crazy for them as a child and now even more as it always brings back such nice comforting memories from my childhood. It certainly is fattening, but it's seriously worth it .
A chef for a husband you say, I'd say you've done really well there
It's actually vol-au-vent which means "Fly in the wind" in reference to the lightness of the pastry. Sorry I'm not trying to be a smart ass here, it's just that I'm actually french. And yeah, it would have been in the 70s that my dad used to sell them like hot cakes in his bakery.
other - chocolate fudge!
Shrimp!!!!! My comfort food. I don't care how they are prepared (I'm like that young man in Forest Gump). I could eat a couple of pounds, I think.
That's so funny, 'cos I was doing the weekly shop last night. In the freezer, on special offer, were vol-au-vents... and you know what, I looked at them and thought "OMG, I must remember the spelling and go on SK board and re-post"... Thank you, I had no idea you're French!
Merci beaucoup and all that - my Dad was also French (French Canadian from Quebec)
Now if only I could get the chef husband to cook more often for me at home!
