For me its macaroni and cheese, grits, almost any form of cooked potatoes (especially mashed, fried, or in soup), grilled cheese sandwiches (slightly burned or blackened please), European chocolate, peanut butter M&Ms, Irish breakfast tea, Jersey pizza, spicy chicken patties, homemade bread and (a very recent addition) lemon meringue pie. I'm sure you have your own list if you stop to think about it.
Sometimes sitting in front of the TV with a cup of tea and a plate of pie just isn't enough to shake off a funk. Sometimes I need a little extra oomph. That's when I turn to comfort tv and movies. I've learned that this isn't something everybody has. Also just like food the list is mood dependent.
Here's a bit of my list from the top of my head:
- Doctor Who
- Warehouse 13
- Die Hard
- Battleship (a new addition)
- Down Periscope
- Firefly & Serenity
- Big Bang Theory
Do you have a tv show or movie that you turn to for comfort? What about your favorite comfort food? What's on your list?
