There's nothing like roast beef, mashed potatoes, gravy and peas. If I could eat that seven nights a week, I would. Unfortunately, Weight Watchers frowns on that!

Mac and cheese............or pizza or any pasta dish............things I deprive myself of most of the time, but yummy!!

My comfort meal is a nice, juicy meatloaf, mashed potatoes with lots of butter(yummy but I seldom eat as much butter as I would like to), and corn......with a nice slice of beer bread on the side. To me, there is nothing more comforting than this meal, piping hot, on a freezing cold winters night.

Well, my very favorite feel goo dmeal is chicken fried steak with cream gravy, mashed potatoes, dressing and green beans. Of course it is about one of the most unhealthy meals in the world, so I wouldn't / couldn't eat it even once a month!
