Is There Such a Thing as “Solace Food??”
Never mind comfort food.
Whether it’s the local weather (cold, wet, and dark); the drumbeat of incessantly negative news (Pittsburgh synagogue massacre, mail bombs, immigrant caravans, etc.); or just unrelenting 24/7 Trump, the Kaplan household is lately craving something more . . . potent.
Call it, “solace food.”
The list includes hearty soups, stews, pasta — spaghetti & meatballs is always a “go to” — followed by sweets like ice cream or even pudding.
Yeah, all those carbs and sugar are caloric.
But, it beats the alternative: such things as comfort alcohol or pills. . .
P.S.: the best kind of comfort? Human comfort (I suppose you’d call that “comfort people“).
