Not the sort of fare I would normally choose, but when wet, cold, miserable and in enormous seas, it was one of the memorable meals of my life.
I was gonna say pretty much the same - for me anything hot that can get straight out of a can. Ideally stuff you can easily plonk stuff into to make it a bit more interesting / pretend to self that you are cooking ........ I have a fondness for Tomato soup - with lots of grated chedder cheese and bread.

For me, when the weather gets unpleasant boat food becomes like airline food - most would not travel specifically for the food!, but when it arrives are usually very grateful - if only to break up the boredom!

Atoll:

I always keep a number of those Ramen cups on board for quick meals too. I add a dollop of crunchy peanut butter and stir it in. I call it BIANKA Pad Thai when underway.

Speaking of comfort food a container of Peanut Butter is always on board my boat. Sailing in a nice afternoon breeze enjoying slices of apple smeared with a little peanut butter as an afternoon snack just help makes things a little better.

Oh, dark chocolate! How could I forget about chocolate. It has to be the ultimate comfort food requiring zero preparation .

Senility must be setting in after too long at sea . As I see it, chocolate is the sixth main food group.

Re: Fave Comfort Food

My step daughter once told to her friend that I never buy food, only raw materials. Anyway, anything cooked or fried with some garlic, pepper, salt, some herbs, red wine or either cream or condensed milk if you prefer it "saucy" or O'my sweet&sour souce, that's a table spoons of ketchup, maizena, vinegar, sugar and soya sauce, a bit of salt, one and half cups of water, stir fast ang throw over the fried ingredients on the hot pan, cooks up in 30sec and voilà...
