It tastes good and doesn't really have any calories to speak of. I used to drink a lot of them, now maybe a couple a week. For times when it's hot and I wanted something cold with fizz I've switched out from beer to energy drinks and sparkeling water. Less calories at least.

Both for me

Re: Comfort Foods

A comfort food for me is a bacon and egg sandwich--probably because when I was ill, that was something my mother fixed for me.

Re: Comfort Foods

A good breakfast is a "Strammer Max" or "Otto Max" ; the first is a piece of steak topped with bacon and eggs - the second is a slice of bread topped up with eggs and cheese/roastbeef. They know more varieties in Germany as it is a typical German dish.

Reibekuchen

1 Kg potatoes (no crumble)
1/2 Onion
2 eggs
250 gr flour
teaspoon salt
oil (sunseed)

wash the potatoes and make them dry;
Flake into medium size flakes;
Cut the onoin into small rings;
Mix everything in a big bowl;
Heat the sunseed oil and put the flaked mix in the frying pan, shaping the potatoe mixture into medium sized pancakes.
Fry them on medium fire until golden brown.

Serve hot with applesauce

Mahlzeit!

Re: Comfort Foods

Homemade mac & cheese. I usually make it with 3-4 kinds of cheese, depending on what I have around. The key to high quality mac & cheese is gruyere and a lot of it. Pair it with a nice IPA.

Garlic mashed potatoes are up there too with a big steak.

Is that with one or two "n"s? If two, I'm not sailing with you.
