On Tues, we went to Carol’s election party. The theme was to bring a comfort food so we brought the Maple Pecan Sticky Buns.

Carol also put out a lox spread and for a very Jewish crowd, that is absolutely comfort food. She also made apple bread pudding, samosa/empanadas, and mac & cheese. (Sorry, I’m missing some pics.)

Oh, and last but not least, hot dogs. These were Zabar’s beef frankfurters, which are fabulous.

The winner of the night was when Lon made a hot dogs with mac & cheese. Yum!

Tell us your comfort food.
