Comfort food what is it? Of course, food that makes you comfortable, happy and content. A reward for doing something well, or a panacea for all the trials and tribulations you have had to put up with? No matter what excuse we use, and I have used them all i.e. if something good has happened to me, I reward myself with chocolate. On the other hand, if something bad has happened to me and I need cheering up, I reward myself with a chocolate.
What is my favourite food you might ask? Well, being a chocaholic, you know what I am going to say – Chocolate, closely followed by biscuits (or as American’s say, cookies). My hips bear witness to this addiction of mine.
My favourite chocolate is milk chocolate, followed by dark chocolate, (which scientists are now saying is good for you, I could have told them that), and white chocolate. I have to confess I am not a great fan of white chocolate, and as much as it pains me to admit it, I find it too sweet and sickly.
I prefer a plain chocolate bar, but I do enjoy a chocolate bar with peppermint or honeycomb in it.
As authors I am sure we can all relate to this.
