Visit with 92.7 WOBM at the Comfort Food Festival Saturday in Downtown Toms River, NJ
Fall is the perfect time to think about "comfort foods". Comfort food is defined as "food that provides consolation or a feeling of well-being, typically any with a high sugar or other carbohydrate content and associated with childhood or home cooking."
When it comes to "comfort food" I think of soup, chili, meatloaf, and mashed potatoes as some of my favorite "comfort foods". On the sweet side homemade ice cream, pie, and cookies as dessert "comfort foods". Nothing beats a pot of homemade soup on the stove on a cold day.
Football Sunday is always a good day for comfort food also. A nice crock pot of chili and the Giants are a good combo. Maybe some coffee and pie in the fourth quarter.
Speaking of comfort food, there is a fantastic event this Saturday, September 17th in Downtown Toms River. It's the Comfort Food Festival brought to you by the Downtown Toms River Business Improvement District. "Join The Downtown Toms River Business Improvement District for our Comfort Food Festival.
