It is one of those wintery days today - no sun, lots and lots of rain, storms rolling around, grey and cold so what better thing to do than cook up a storm in my kitchen. Winter is definitely "comfort food" time so what to make - soup, casseroles, muffins and scones. Open up the fridge and pantry and pull out all the relevant ingredients, switch on the oven and three hours later end up with
A vegetable frittata, pumpkin, potato, lentil and curry soup for work lunches, chicken, rice and vegetable casserole for tomorrow night's dinner, ham, cheese and onion muffins and a batch of plain scones.
I think that one of those scones will go down very well with a cup of perculated coffee right about now.
What is your favourite winter "comfort food"?
