First of all – note to myself: remember to punish Sideview because every time I tried to start this I ended up snacking instead of writing.
To me comfort food is mom’s cooking.
I am reminded of nostalgic memories:
Rainy days: coming home to warm delicious thick soups, fresh crisp bread with a thick layer of butter.
Being sick with flu: and caringly fed homemade chicken soup.
Studying: late into the night and being treated to a large mug of hot chocolate and marshmallows.
Sunday lunch: delicious lamb roast, rice, gravy and vegetables.
The puddings: ginger, date and nut pudding with custard. Ice-cream with fruit salad. Soft sweet milk tart.
Cold winter days: eating curry stew and chutney or warm meaty pies.
Sunday mornings: toast and eggs or pancakes and syrup or waffles and cream.
Salads: the most mouth-watering potato salad and Greek salad with olives and feta cheese.
Now you know what comfort food is to me.
