Autumn; and a woman’s thoughts turn to……comfort foods!
With the slow coming change of season, I’ve witnessed a shift of available fruit and vegetables at my green grocers over the last couple of weeks.
My favourite lunch time food is back…..Sweet Corn!…
popped into a saucepan with water, brought to the boil and cooked for 7 long, mouthwatering, impatiently waited for minutes. Then placed on a plate with
a little (let’s be honest here!) lashings of butter, and a goodly amount of salt and pepper…
It’s also time to indulge in the more involved cookery, like lasagne…..
….the smell of which pervades the kitchen, again bringing on that mouth watering anticipation of deliciousness, watching the white sauce bubble and brown, knowing underneath it is a wonderful mix of meat, bacon, onion, tomato, mushrooms, herbs and spices, the flavours all mingling and bubbling away….
And with the cooler days and evenings, these victuals are the perfect warm-me-up!
Happy stitching (and cooking and eating!)
