Comfort Cooking

#1 Unread post by mogster » Sun May 22, 2011 2:32 pm

Been feeling a bit down & tetchy for a few days, :( no real reason but just tired & still skint!

So partly to redeem myself & partly for nostalgic home comfort I thought I would do a big cook up today (Sun).

I often cook on a Sunday for the week ahead but tend to do it mainly in winter.

Anyway have made 2x large Shepherds Pies, (minced steak + equal soya mince; carrots; peas; onions; leek; topped with mashed potato + sliced tomatoes).

We have stuffed ourselves......yummy & there is enough left over for another 3 nights! X :hungry1:

So my question is what do you cook for comfort &/or nostalgia?

And before anyone goes all PC on me........yes guys you can cook/comment too! :lol:

I came over to my sister's to recover from my surgery. My brother-in -law Doug smoked up a bunch of chicken, ribs, and sausages and we had asparagus spears, squash and ranch beans and a fruit pie. That's the way to get over. :kicking:

OMG I love shepherd's pie!!! Mike makes the meanest cottage pie, it's so delicious I can't even tell you.

I am a baker more than a chef so when I need comfort food I often bake. On Saturday I made the most yummiest brownies ever and served them up with a scoop of chocolate mint ice cream. Now that's a treat! ;)

Pancakes. AKA hotcakes or flapjacks...

When I am in "mood" after work and feeling unmotivated to do anything or feel bored.....I make pancakes. Hot out of the pan with butter melting on them and real maple syrup dripping over the edges.

I then can take left overs for lunch the next day.

We have a braai, barbecue to you.

it involves all the men hanging around the fire talking shyte, drinking beer and general pissing contests, while the women do the same while making salads and garlic bread.

They have to be the most un sociable thing you can ever do and because it takes hours to light the fire, get it to a perfect cooking temp and then only cook the food, chicken takes foreeevvveeerrr. Then everyone gets p1ssed coz everything took so long and someone usually ends up falling over or even falling in the fire. AND then the women start fighting coz this ones SO looked squiff at that ones arse and the kids were caught p1ssing in the Koi pond and the milk tart got squashed deliberately by some one who forgot to bring desert.

Then some git has to get his latest toy toy out, like a helicopter or an AK47 or something and start showing it off while we run for cover forgetting that the meat and chicken is burning on the fire, AND then some one gets out the latest coolest drink like Patron or orange flavor witsblits with naked girls on the label and you could run a turbo Gixxer on the stuff. So then people get really blotto and family members have to be called to take them home and we get shat on for letting them get in that state.

Needless to say, they never end well.

So what do we do, we schedule another one for month end so we can kiss and make up :roll:

If I'm cooking, it's always going to be breakfast - and typically an omelette and pancakes. If I'm baking, any sort of quick bread (banana, sweet potato, zucchini). And everything has to be homemade - no freakin' boxed starters.

Cheers,

Comfort food, dang, that could be a long list. I come from an English and Polish/Ukraine background. Food choices as a child were pretty awesome, everything from steak and kidney pie to perogies and cabbage rolls. I love shepards pie, yorkshire pudding farmers sausage.... the list just goes on and on...

My go to comfort food isn't even out of my heritage, it's pasta, in just about any shape or form. Served plain with a bit of butter, slathered in sauce, or baked with an awesome selection of cheeses... Mmmm...
