Recipes that are delicious and that always work!

You know these recipes are delicious because if I didn't think that they were fabulous . . . I wouldn't be showing them to you. You can also be sure that these recipes work for the same reason! The rest is simply a matter of taste.
I cannot endure to waste anything so precious as autumnal sunshine by staying in the house. So I have spent almost all the daylight hours in the open air.

Bread and Jam



I'm still seriously not feeling very well . . .

It sucks. And I don't even have my mum living nearby to come over and spoil me a bit . . . pamper me a lot . . . and help to make me feel better. *SNIFF*



I never cooked all day. Not at all . . . I just have no energy in me to do much of anything. I just want to lay around in my jim jams and feel sorry for myself.

This calls for the ultimate comfort food.



Store bought white bread (Thick slice) spread with softened butter and then slathered with Bon Maman Strawberry Jam, coz if you don't have homemade . . . and I don't . . . it's the next best thing . . .



I may not have my mum nearby to help . . . but I do have Bon Maman! (And no, I wasn't paid to say that!) Hopefully will be back to our normal programming by tomorrow! I can't take much more of this! (Feeling sick that is, not the bread and jam . . . that I can quite happily gorge myself on!)

Poor Marie. You are looking awwwful. Furry, Hope your ice bag helps. I see you use the same jam I do. As you say ... moreish. Ummm. I save those jars for chutney. Tomorrow would be a good time to make apple chutney with some cranberries.

Get well soon Marie. Oh! Don't forget. It's Thanksgiving weekend.

Get well soon! Some sort of crud is running around the states as well. My stepson, my daughter and I have some sort of sickness and 1/2 of my husband's office is out sick too.

So glad I found this site! My husband and I plan to move to England in 4-5 years. We've always heard the same exact things you had about English foods. We don't fear any foods so we are quite excited to try real English fare. We are slowly starting to assimilate ourselves to the limited British foods that are available here in the States. :)

Oh I love a jam butty:) The ultimate comfort food. Takes me back to my childhood, when a jam butty and a glass of milk would be waiting on the kitchen table when we got home from school.

Thank you for evoking a good memory form my past.
Get Well Soon.

Hugs

Seriously, there's nothing better when under the weather than what you've got right there. Vats of tea and hours of bad tv. Hope you're better soon.
