It seems we did shame our youngest contributor into a post but it was a good one. Reading the three post on "comfort food" I noticed a common thread. They deal with much more than food, it's the whole family experience and food just is a reason to bring us together. Some families might be centered with music or sports; ours just happens to be cooking.
Doodle's posole, MP's fried chicken and mine on Olvera St has conjured up some comfortable memories to warm my soul until spring. Thanks, mujares!
