Do you have a list of your comfort food? You know, the edible things you love to stuff in your mouth to comfort you when you feel down or simply give you the energy to go about your day? I have mine which continues to get long as the days go by. Oh, I just love food!
Top on my list is anything sweet (e.g. chocolates, milk and mint-based candies, cakes, pastries, ice cream, etc.). Blame my mother for that as I got my sweet tooth from her. I guess we’re just lucky we haven’t gotten the dreaded diabetes yet (knocks on wood!). But recently, to cut back on sugar and safeguard my health, I have decided to drop those sweet candies in my list and replaced them with sugar-free ones. I also limit my intake of sugar and drink lots of water whenever I can.
I consider the dishes I used to eat regularly when I was a kid as comfort food. These include salted egg with fresh tomatoes, squid adobo, string beans adobo, canned tuna, mongo guisado, fried galunggong (a local fish), pork nilaga, imported corned beef, Pinoy-style spaghetti, chicken noodle soup and a lot more. My mom enjoys cooking for us (her children) and I think that’s the reason why I learned to love food (and eating for that matter) at an early age.
Now, before I sneak into the kitchen again to eat the last remaining slice of the very sinful choco-caramel cake in the ref, I better start doing some work. I need to check out overnight prints from printingamerica.com for a friend’s project or I’d run the risk of not receiving a Christmas present from her. Haha.
What’s your comfort food? I’d love to hear about it!
