What comfort food do you crave at home?


For me, it’s a simple noodle dish. Boil water with some soy sauce and sesame oil (stock if I have it). Add an egg, tomato, bok choy and rice noodle or noodle. Add a few shrimp, cook till noodle is al dente. Add white pepper.

Can’t say its gourmet but it’s something soothing for me.

What are yours?



I would have to say breakfast in the evening . Eggs , hash browns , smoked pork chop .

Soup. Any kind, as long as it contains no traces of curry (which I despise).

I’m a soup fiend.



Mashed potatoes with gravy and peas on the side or sometimes mixed into the potato.
avgolemono (especially if I’m under the weather)
fasolakia (Greek long cooked green beans)

Nice! I’m doing a Sicilian stuffed twist today–salami and hot peppers with fresh mozz inside. That must rock in the barbecue. Is there bacon involved?



No bacon . Beef ,pork ,and veal .



We smoked a meatloaf sometime back and it took a great dish to really out of this world. Need to do that again.

Not long ago made a Shepard’s pie with ground lamb. So good and comforting

Mashed potatoes, Yorkshire pudding and gravy. It doesn’t happen in my kitchen; but, my aunt makes it when I visit her. Usually we eat it in our pajamas.



Do you have a recipie you could share? Oops, that was meant for lamb shepards pie.

No recipe but this is the basics. No proportions available, just eye it

Leg of lamb-medium grind

Brown lamb with onions. Season with s/p, herbs can be any of the following or combination; rosemary, thyme, oregano

Dice carrots and mix with frozen peas and season. I don’t remember if I cooked these before putting it together. Something tells me I didn’t since there was adequate time for the carrots to soften while in the oven but don’t hold me to that :wink:

Potatoes peeled, diced, boiled and mashed with butter. Seasoned with s/p

Layer and toss in a 350 oven until the top is nicely browned

This was what I had on hand that day at that moment. Please customize to your taste

I cook off the cuff most often. Sadly I don’t menu plan and almost everything I cook is spur of the moment depending on what’s in the fridge, freezer and pantry and how much time I have. When I shop, I buy what looks good and is a good deal and work from that. Of course certain stables are keep on hand at all times

Thanks for the outline, I can definitely do this, with adaptions, not pea and carrot fans here:). Thinking corn or something else…thanks!



Improvisation is how I roll. Go for it!
