Comfort food


Have you ever eaten peanut brittle like this? It's so darn addictive, I'm sitting here slapping my hand because I can't stop reaching out for another one.

CH is having a stressful day at work. I don't quite know how to cheer him up except to cook his favourite food for dinner - Uncle Tan's braised pork ribs slowed cooked until the meat fall off the bone.

Yes. Comfort food to melt his troubles away.

For me, if I am stressed out, I have no appetite. Exercising seems to be my only comfort. CH rushing some deadlines?

JY - Just give me a call and I'll cook it for ya!! Whether it is delicious or not, that I can't promise.

Food in general is my comfort food! I never seem to loose my appetite and stress just makes me eat more!

I hope CH isn’t too stressed. I imagine he appreciates the tender meat, so tenderly cooked.

Ohhhh...sorry to hear about CH. Comfort food is THE BEST!!! I'm afraid I'm not that crazy about nuts, though he he...Any kind of nuts, that is.

Be careful Blur.. I might take you up on your offer... I bet your porridge is REALLY good!

World - Itn't it funny how different people react to stress? I don't seem to lose my appetite when I'm stressed out too.

Blur Ting said...

Amel - I know how you dislike nuts! But why? I love nuts, all kinds!

Blur Ting said...

JY - There are various kinds of porridge. There's the really soft Cantonese type which I think you like. That I can't make. It's pretty tedious as it takes hours to boil using broken rice and chicken stock.

The one that I cook is more like soupy rice with the grains still intact but mixed with ingredients like fish, meat, tofu and vegetables.

I suppose porridge is always a comfort food for Asians especially when we're feeling under the weather. I usually cook when my kids are sick.

The food was fabulous, I feel much better already!
Didn't see any peanut brittle though...

Heh, that's because I hid it. I'm not sharing my comfort food with you!
