Comfort. Comfort. It's a word that conjures feelings of warmth, coziness, safety, well-being. Good feelings, happy feelings. And comfort foods are so named because they tend to elicit those same feelings. Amazing, isn't it? How a simple food can actually make us feel comforted?
We can all use a little comfort now and then, especially during trying times like these, when there is so much sadness and strife in the world, it's easy to feel small and helpless.
