Comforts - What's Your Pleasure

What do you run to when you are not feeling your best?  Do you find that there is just certain foods that just seem to make everything all right again?
I spent all day Friday helping a friend of a friend round-up, gather, chase and otherwise find is cattle.  Don't get me wrong, I love the thrill of being on horse back for roughly 10 hours.  It's just that my aging body doesn't like it so much any more.
So what brought me comfort after a long, hard, cold, muddy cattle drive?  You are probable thing hot tube, that would have been nice.  Foot and body massage, might have to think long and hard on that one.  Warm fuzzy PJ'S sitting in front or a quiet fire,  hmm,  that also would have been great last night.
Nope none of the above.
What I ran to was . . . French Fries . . .
Dumb I know . . . but these little morsels of fried potatoes have always made me feel a better.  Could it be the grease?   Or is it the salt I crave?   Or could it be that I was raise on a potato farm and still have to have my fill of spuds?  I don't really know what it is but when I am feeling down, ill or just need a pick-me-up, these always to the trick.  Oh and I have to have the side of fry sauce to make the dish complete.
So what is it that bring you comfort, pleasure or just lift your spirits?

French Fries no doubt will life my spirits...but so will an ice cold beer.... ;)

My comfort is McD's small french fries and a small chocolate shake. I do not indulge often; but, when I'm home visiting my Mother, It never fails that I go at least once because I need a lift me up thing.

I ate peanut butter on a spoon yesterday and that seemed to help, but I also love french fries!

Junk food. Ha. But it's true. I try to stick to a healthy diet...but every once in a while, I like to indulge. Like right now. I'm typing this while eating sour cream & onion chips ;)

Ahhh...I love french fries, but my comfort would be a cup of coffee or chai. Love the photo! :)

Hi Barb, I'm visiting from the Monkey Tribe. I love your site! I think you can never go wrong with greasy, salty french fries. Even though I don't indulge very often. Another favorite of mine is pizza. I swear I could live on the stuff!
Have a great day!
