Tis the season to feast on soups and stews, drink tea and eat cake. Anything warm and comforting is welcome in my life at the moment. This is a variety of things I’ve eaten over the past week.
Sometimes these kinds of food aren’t the most attractive to photograph. On the left is salad, bread, ratatouille, mashed sweet potato, and creme fraiche. On the right is tomato & butterbean soup with Israeli couscous mixed in, and bread with pate.
Meatballs and chorizo in a tomato, pepper, onion and garlic sauce, served with Israeli couscous. Lemon drizzle cake and a cup of tea.
Gingerbread coffee and a Kindle – perfect cold weather companions. Muffin, scrambled eggs, tomatoes, apple.
I have a confession to make: I make scrambled eggs in the microwave. I always have done. It takes barely any time at all and it’s so easy. My boyfriend thinks this is some kind of egg sacrilege and won’t allow me to make them for him, ever. He can’t poach eggs, though, and I can so I win. How do you make yours?
Tea or coffee?
Have you started eating wintery comfort food yet?
