    Although this has been asked before, I think for me it's situational. Sometimes it has to be real macaroni and cheese made with sharp Wisconsin cheddar and topped with buttery breadcrumbs. Save the crispy edges for me!

    Other times it's cheesecake, or warm challah with butter and honey, or potato chips. A bowl of matzo ball soup with mostly matzo balls will do it if my tummy's the problem.

    Carbs: whether sweet or savory, that's usually it! :rolleyes:

    Oh, I dig macaroni cheese now and then but my favourite comfort food is potato chips with dip. In NZ we have a range of sour cream dips that are addictive, my favourite is cheese and onion. Match that with a bag of plain salted thick cut potato chips, Gin and tonic and your set.

    Is there anything nutritional in this…?

    Stemming back to childhood memories nothing beats macaroni and cheese with sliced hot dogs.

    Camarones al mojo de Ajo... which tranlates into: Shrimp smothered in Garlic. :D Although, I first have to become comfortable about paying the price for the shrimp. ;) Oh yeah, about a pound of that in jumbos and I am quite comfortable. :cool:

    Then too, there is good ol' standby house brands of 'Kraft Macaroni and Cheese' that can be bought on sale for as little as 4 or 5 for a dollar..... :lips:

    Risotto made with real broth and just the right amount of parmigiano.

    Or, if I'm feeling like a kid -- mac & cheese, finished under the broiler.

    Practically anything with any chocolate...even better if it was all chocolate like chewy chocolate brownie with white chocolate chunks iced with dark chocolate icing on the side of a chocolate ice cream dusted with coco powder...

    ...and just for the **** of it, white and dark chocolate shavings :eek:

    I've never had real mac 'n' cheese, so I'll go with homemade Lentil Soup, Nonna style and garlic toast.

    Mashed potatoes or potato soup. When I get stressed out, I lose my appetite. But I can always eat potatoes. Mac and cheese is great, too, as are sauteed mushrooms (w/butter & garlic), home canned green beans, grits cooked all day, and warm biscuits.

    I have to admit, I also have a thing for canned clam chowder :lips:

    Chicken Pot Pie; sometimes with green chiles as part of the mix. In the dead of winter - fireplace time - a beef stew.

    I think it'd be a toss up between german lentil soup and kim chee with bacon. My korean roommate introduced me to this one. Basically it's just kim chee stir fried with bacon, but the bacon is only cooked long enough to be done. So it's really fatty meat with kim chee. It's oily and spicy. It taste so good, but you just feel like you're going to have a heart attack afterwards.
