Cooking up a storm

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"?

Everything looks yummy, Karen. A few hours in the kitchen is a great way to not only make some lovely food, but a good way to warm yourself at the same time? :)
Shame about the washing up though, but all the goodies are worth it. ;)
