Fall is the perfect time to think about "comfort foods". Comfort food is defined as "food that provides consolation or a feeling of well-being, typically any with a high sugar or other carbohydrate content and associated with childhood or home cooking."

When it comes to "comfort food" I think of soup, chili, meatloaf, and mashed potatoes as some of my favorite "comfort foods". On the sweet side homemade ice cream, pie, and cookies as dessert "comfort foods". Nothing beats a pot of homemade soup on the stove on a cold day.

Football Sunday is always a good day for comfort food also. A nice crock pot of chili and the Giants are a good combo. Maybe some coffee and pie in the fourth quarter.
