Comforting Carbs....

 Firstly, a big thank you to everyone who left comments on my last but one post.  To read about other people's experiences is comforting. Thanks for your good wishes.  I'll keep you in the loop, as they say.

The short time I had with the family was lovely.  The table was allocated to us for just 90 minutes and we had table service so could just sit and talk whilst we awaited the food.  The meals were not brilliant to be honest, my veg lasagne had been reheated in a microwave and the chips were not very hot, the side salad dire (lettuce from a bag, sliced red onion and a few pieces of chopped tomato) but I could sit and catch up on their news.  I'm glad we did it because it was announced this evening that in future, meeting in pubs/restaurants will not be allowed from Wednesday 😥 until further notice.

On Sunday morning I popped to the supermarket for some hand wipes and had to pass through the bread aisle to get to them.  Yellow stickers caught my eye and I just HAD to investigate. Well it would have been rude not to after all this time 🙃 I couldn't resist this little lot for the freezer......


I'll use the pitta breads to make mini lunchtime pizzas and the tea cakes, crumpets and scones can be brought out when required.  The bread will come out a couple of slices at a time as I need them.  I think they cost a total of £1.21 With all the cake in the afternoon tea box as well, we have plenty to keep us going now if the weather turns nasty and we need comforting carbs!.

What is your favourite comfort food?

Stay safe everyone wherever in the world you happen to be x

    1. They are so quick Jackie. I spread with tomato puree and top with whatever I have to hand; tomatoes, peppers, onion, cheese etc then grill on medium until melted and heated through. Delicious!

  4. Pitta bread pizzas ... they are just the perfect size for one aren't they and if you all like different toppings there's no danger of 'contamination'.

    Well spotted :-)

  5. Wow, you got some great deals! My favorite comfort food is homemade yellow cake with chocolate truffle frosting. I love hamburger with gravy over mashed potatoes, too.

Big Shop #4

 As we had run out of bread, coffee and were almost out of milk, we decided to do the last 'Big Shop' today instead of Wednesday.   ...
