Ultimate comfort food in these trying times
« on: Saturday 11 April 20 12:18 BST (UK) »
Hi

Just turned this Easter around with the best comfort food ever.
A full English breakfast, 7 rashers of smoked streaky bacon, 3 sausages, half a dozen mushrooms, 2 tomato’s, 2 eggs, black pudding and half a small loaf.

It doesn’t get any better unless it is tomorrows  dinner which is roast salmon cut beef with new potato’s, 3 veg and Yorkshire puddings.
I know with the coronavirus it is hard to find some comfort but these 2 meals go a long way to having some.

What would yours be.

Oooo, rice pudding would be my comfort food, love it  ;D

My breakfast certainly wouldn't stretch to the list that you gave.  I think I would explode before I had eaten half of that.  :o   A bowl of cereal and a cup of tea is my breakfast.

Just had a lovely bowl of porridge, properly simmered in a pan not blasted in the microwave, with a very generous drizzle (well, two teaspoons) of runny hunny, as it is called chez moi.  Much more of a comfort than Shreddies.

That sounds amazing John. I am a big eater but would probably take that back a bit to 3 rashers, one sausage, one tomato and a fried slice instead of half a loaf. Sets you up for the day. Yum.  :)

GG - I haven’t had rice pudding in ages! I fancy that too.

Also porridge which is back on the menu now that the weather is getting cooler in my part of the world.

 ;D

That is my problem right now, eating to much, even a hot cross but I put on 1.5 lbs overnight, easter eggs, thankfully I only have one from our daughter and family

Well , I wouldn't be Scottish if I didn't give good old mince'n' tatties a mention.
Nothing beats a cottage pie - packed with carrot, onion, mushrooms and peas and a layer of mashed neeps (swede) below the tatties.
Also partial to my homemade tattie soup ((note the potato theme going on) and rhubarb crumble and custard.
Yum :P
Looby :)
