Comfort meals

On a normal cold and rainy day, like it is here in Chicagoland today, I enjoy a good comfort meal to warm up both physically and mentally. It’s interesting what people view as a comfort meal as it usually relates to something they had as a child. With all the uncertainty in the world lately due to coronavirus, it makes a comfort meal all that more mentally comforting.

So today I introduced my kids to one of my favorite comfort meals. Grilled cheese with tomato soup, but the real important item that caps it off for me is a diced hard boiled egg in the soup.

So I’m curious, what are some of your favorite comfort meals? What are you enjoying lately that’s helping ease your mind from the concerns on coronavirus?

    One of my comforts is very similar. I love putting some canned corn inside of a grilled cheese sandwich.

      Interesting, is that also a childhood favorite?

    Do you dip the grilled cheese in the soup? Or is that a no no?
