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“).
