For me SOAS was creamed chipped beef on toast...not hamburger. I haven't had it in years but it always makes me think of my mom. Recently I bought a frozen one, but still haven't eaten it yet.

My brother is 7 years older and my sister 10. If they did good on their report cards and us younger kids, I have a brother 3 years younger than me were good, we went to Guidas for ice cream cones. That was a big deal. I don't know if it is the ice cream cone or the memory but I find it comforting. Chocolate Chip with sprinkles.

When I was a very young girl, I would have to go with my mother to shop and pay bills. If I was a "good girl" while she did her errands, we would stop at the soda fountain or the candy counter at Woolworth's. I got either a hot fudge sundae or M & M's. Needless to say, I find that either of these treats need to be kept out of my house!

i have to say, i have never like homemade mac, but i love the boxed stuff. it's awful in a way, but i also like the synthetic cheese at the same time.
but my compromise is this - if i'm making it, i'm cutting it with veggies. if i have broccoli or cauliflower on hand, i'll chop it up, steam it a little and add it right when you add the cheese packet and milk. if i have spinach, i'll stir in the spinach right after the cheese just enough to wilt it. peas or mixed vegetables [for when i am lazy, cheap or broke] get mixed one to one with the mac [in other words, half a cup of veggies with a half cup of mac]. if i have cooked up beans or some raw zucchini to use up, i'll mix them in after as well. whatever it takes so that instead of having a cup of plain mac, i have a half cup of mac and a serving of vegetables. and i'm perfectly okay with using mac as a vehicle to get more vegetables into me.

-google first. ask questions later.

I'm right there with you loving the Kraft mac & cheese! It is truly one of my comfort foods.

OMG I LOVE kraft mac & cheese too! As bad as it is, compared to home-made, and nutritionally, I still totally love it!

Tater Tots, Tater Tots and more Tater Tots (with ranch dressing or BBQ sauce). They are like popcorn. Can't stop eating them.

Mac and Cheese is my favorite too! I buy it in single serving sizes and that helps alot. They even have single serving sizes in a generic form and its just as good.

Potatoes have always been my weakness too! I have been craving homemade potato salad lately.

Also, ice cream. I could eat it during a blizzard. :)
I bought some yesterday, but haven't had any yet. When I do, I will only put about a 1/2 serving on a cone to make it last longer.

I love food or all kinds! And I sometimes get the midnight munchies. I try not to overeat my calories. But sometimes, I get so hungry! So, I just eat about 200kcal at my midnight muchies.

Mine is pizza!!! My problem is that I can't stop at one or two slices so I usually get a small personal pizza so that if I eat the whole is only about 600 calories. I blot the grease off of it first and only get vegetarian. I also only eat it once or twice a month.

All kinds, all the time.

Okay, so here's what you do, make the mac n cheese, eat one portion, then freeze the rest in one serving portions. I know, I know, it's not all that great when thawed, but you have got to learn portion control, especially with tempting comfort foods.

My comfort food is chocolate cake, and that's like a gazillion calories, so I'm better off getting one peiece at a restaurant so I won't have the temptation for the rest of the week.

I've been craving Little Debbie's Marshmallow Supremes recently. I'd not eaten them since I was in college about 15 years ago.

Fried Chicken, I remember having that every Sunday when I was younger. Sometimes I work it into my calories.

For some reason I have been craving Kraft macaroni and cheese. So, today I went to the store and purchased a box. Then I set it on my kitchen counter just to test my will-power......BUT, it got the best of me, and I had to try it for lunch. Needless to say, I won't be eating that for a long time. It tasted so good when I was younger...much younger!!!
