Sometimes when you’re down, a certain food just feels like a big hug. And after what we’ve been through with Hurricane Ian, we can all use that comfort foods hug.

Hurricane Ian has completely upended lives across Southwest Florida. And although my house received only minimal damage, we’ve had another family living with us whose home was completely destroyed. So what can you do to help? You really don’t want to just sit around talking about the hurricane and everything that’s been destroyed. So let’s eat.

Comfort food is one of those terms you inherit from your Mom. It’s the kind of food they specialize in at Cracker Barrel. It’s what we’ve been eating the past two weeks without realizing. It was just yesterday when I asked my girl “Hey, should I pick up some lettuce and maybe make a salad tonight?”

We’ve been eating nothing but pasta and carbs, and sweets ever since the power came on. Not even really sure we realized it. Eating these foods just seemed to feel right. When we helped deliver food to one of the POD sites it was sandwiches and pizza. Comfort foods. So take a look at this list compiled by Ranker and see if it’s what you’ve been craving these past couple of weeks. Last night I got my salad, along with lasagna and chocolate chip cookies. We’re not done with the comfort food.
