Hot chocolate, without a doubt.
As kids, we were always outside, and the one guarantee if it was cool and rainy, or during the winter, was that we'd come inside to change in to warm, dry clothes and have a hot chocolate. Not some pre-mixed stuff with water, but melted chocolate and milk heated in the double-boiler.
This has been my family comfort food in all situations, and is now my evening "ritual" that ends every day. I "cheat" now with using cocoa powder and maple sugar and the microwave (I'm far too lazy to clean a double-boiler every day!), but it never fails to make me smile with that same warm, cozy, safe-at-home feeling that I had when I came inside as a kid.
I'm smiling right now as I'm typing this!

Afraid of a colonoscopy? Believe me - they are much less frightening than surgery and chemotherapy.
Colonoscopies allow polyps to be removed before they can become cancer, or let cancers be found before they are too widespread. If you are 50 or older, or have any symptoms, please don't let fear stop you from covering your butt.
