Re: Comfort Foods

Sorry, I forget that half and half is not a universal experience. I use it in my coffee an as a chowder base. I am not one for 2% milk and low fat yogurt.

"In Respiratory Therapy School, we were taught that boiling the carcaass of chicken (the bones) releases an enzyme which prevents infection with RSV (Respiratory Syncitial Virus),as sited in -Burtons “Repiratory Care”. It does not cure the disease once aquired, But having in your diet Three times a week during cold and flu season, can ‘Prevent’ it."

Try googling it some more.

Re: Comfort Foods

In no particular order:

lasagna
matzo brei
eggs and corned beef hash
BLTs (odd, huh?)
goulash
tomato-basil soup
broccoli soup
chicken piccata
pork-fried rice

We're all the product of our experiences aren't we?

Re: Comfort Foods

some of the this stuff sounds like the fuel for some real nasty farts

is it eating the food or doing the farts that is the comfort part?

Re: Comfort Foods

From wikipedia
Quote:
In Canada and the United States, half and half (known as "half cream" in the United Kingdom) almost always refers to a very light cream typically used in coffee. The name refers to the liquid's content of half milk and half cream even though its butterfat content is only about 12.5%.
