My favorite comfort foods for fall

I pushed myself far out of my comfort zone today, and went to a kick-boxing class ! I haven’t done any real sport in a little more than 3 years, so, as expected, my whole body feels like overcooked spaghetti right now and I have trouble lifting the smallest things.

So, in the spirit of Blogtober, I thought I’d talk a little about one of the things I love the most in my life – up in my top 5 with books and comfy sweaters in the winter – food.

I’m a big fan of food – whether it’s a simple recipe, or something that takes 3 full hours to cook, if it tastes good, I love it. So I thought I’d share my 5 favorite comfort foods for fall !

  • Tomates farcies (“stuffed tomatoes”)

Here is a recipe in English – tomates farcies are big tomatoes, stuffed with a mix of meat, tomato, rice, bread crumbs and wine (and other things if you want to make it a fancy meal), roasted in the oven and served with a good serving of rice. They taste heavenly, and they smell like fall and Halloween to me.

  • Macaroni and cheese

I discovered mac and cheese during my first fall semester in Canada, at a time when I felt pretty alone and lost in the world, and it was such a good comfort food that I almost only eat it in those circumstances. (also, cheese is life)

  • Roasted chicken and potatoes

That’s the typical Sunday meal in my family, and it’s associated with so many good moments in my life that the simple smell of cooked chicken and potatoes suffices to put me in a good mood.

  • Pancakes (covered in Nutella and bananas)

I’m extra weak :when I want pancakes, either I have the courage and time to make some at home, or… I go to Cora and order a pile of strawberry banana pancakes with an extra of chocolate sauce on the side.

  • Cereal and milk

Breakfast food = comfort food. In fact, I think that’s what I’m going to have to do tomorrow morning : try to get out of bed early enough to go to the grocery store a few blocks from my house and buy milk to go with my cereal.

Then I’ll stay in bed and read, wrapped in my comfy blankets, and ignore my very sore muscles while I convince myself to go back to the gym next week.
