More Comfort Food

What is comfort food? For me, comfort food brings back happy memories and reminds me of special times in my life. And it therefore makes me feel good... :o)

When hubby and I first started dating, we ate a lot of "flavored" rice with over-easy eggs and seaweed on the side. In fact, it's the first (and pretty much only dish) he has ever made for me. So to me, this simple, slightly strange dish, is true comfort food!

I flavor the rice with soy sauce, rice vinegar, sesame oil, sesame seeds, gochujang (Korean red pepper paste), and a bit of ketchup. We call this dish "bap egg on top" in our house. "Bap" is the Korean word for rice, and my mother-in-law used to make a lot "bap egg on top" when hubby was growing up...

Question: What's your favorite meal from your childhood?

Be well,
