OH and I just had rhubarb crumble and custard for pud ;D was so yummy, I have to say.  Leftovers tomorrow...... hoping that I can resist the temptation to spoon up the lovely rhubarby syrup that is oozing out.

I only have this every now and again so makes a good treat.

A lot of good ideas but I don't eat chocolates, cakes. biscuits etc. so I cannot comment on them but I do like slow cooked food, KGarrard. I would like to suggest you try bacon mash with your ribs, had it in Paris with pork steak.

I also do a nice slow roast, pork, lamb or chicken, put it in oven at 140-150 for about 5 hours.

A big pot of red beans with pig's feet.  Sadly, I didn't stock up on pig's feet before the shutdown.

The ultimate comfort food?. Difficult one that. To generalise, it is a hot, gooey, sticky, calorific pudding with  "curly" custard - thickish, but not thick enough for a spoon up in it for too long.
 :)

Today's pud was bread and butter pudding, but no extra custard because the only thing needed with B and B pud is more B and B pud.

Comfort food not to everyone's taste but delicious all the same.

Toasted Kracka Wheat with cucumber slices, black peppered radish and carrot puree

Rhubarb crumble (or apple or bramble) yummy, but it has to be with evap.

Bowl of hot creamy custard will do me pure comfort.  If it happens to have a blueberry or chocolate muffin underneath it so much the better  :D

Ooh yes, bread and butter pudding - I havenít had that for years. M&S used to do a very good one.

I love slow cooked cheap cuts of meat (though due to their popularity over recent years, they are no longer cheap).

My food hell would be any dessert with stewed fruit or bread and butter pudding  :-X
