    Rethinking Comfort Food

    Anyone have a Comfort food they hated as a kid but find themselves drawn to now that your older?
    I absolutely hated and refused to eat Split Pea Soup ( Pottage St Germaine) Suddenly I was old enough to have to deal with a lot of leftover ham and it's bones and it was suggested by by someone I could not refuse at the time (now ex wife but...) Long story short I now make it all the time and wonder why my mother just couldn't cook it right. She did, I use the same recipe. I suspect the color threw me off ( not to mention off color comments from my siblings as to what it was) and I know my tastes have changed dramatically. I now make it as often as I buy a ham.

    For me it is Beef Pot Pie. My Mom made a great crust but that's where it ended. She would salt and pepper the beef, add chopped carrots, potatoes and onions. That's it. No gravy what so ever.
    I hated it. It was beyond dry and I would use half a bottle of A-1 sauce just to get through a slice.
    I make a great one now, WITH gravy icon_lol.gif

    When I was growing up Pot Pies were born in lil aluminum pie tins and came wrapped in a cardboard box. Needless to say we didn't have them often but often enough for me to figure out how to make a good one as well.

    And Gravy is a MUST!!!

    I'm with you on the split pea soup. I love it now (with or without ham), but as a kid, I hated it. I think it was just the color of it that was off-putting for me.

    Spaghetti sauce - I loathed the way my mother cooked it, it was simply icky and I used to push it around my pllate hoping that it would kind of disappear.
    Now so many years later I love any pasta sauce.
    Years ago there were not half the choice of herbs and spices that we can readily buy these days…..thank goodness icon_lol.gif
