Someone made a comment on one of the other threads about comfort food now that things are getting cooler (if you forget this weekend just gone) - I think stew and dumplings was mentioned :-)

So right now my mind is turning to comfort food, and I am so craving Irish Stew (Gary Rhodes recipe), in a big bowl with a chunk of good bread and butter on the side!

Me Me Me!!!! I am the dumpling woman!oops! that came out wrong!

Talking of bread and butter pudding, ( I know we weren't but I just remembered it!) I had a meal at a friends house and she made the Delia Chocolate bread and butter pudding...not a huge fan of choc desserts but that made me want to urge! Foul!

Now irish stew...mmmmm! with lots of pearl barley in it!

I can't wait for it to get cold enough here to enjoy really hot soup and Tarka Dal and all my favourites. 35ºC here today at 1 PM.
In spite of that I am going to make me some beef in red wine a la Hairy Dieters Eat for Life. Take that, mercury!

I'm not a fan of normal bread and butter pudding - it tastes wrong to me (like bread sauce - which makes me nauseous just thinking about it). But I do like bread and butter pudding made with brioche and flavoured with something like orange zest and Cointreau :-)

Sorry, not with you on the pearl barley - its ok, but not in my (Gary's) recipe. You can put it in my soup instead.

Well you could always stir in some caramelised onions, crispy bacon bits, sweetcorn and peas, and then call it a balanced meal :-)

Some Oz acquaintances asked us over for lunch one day and gave us bread and butter pudding for dessert. DH didn't know whether to feel offended! For Spanish sensibilities, "bread pudding" isn't something you'd feed guests, you'd go buy ice cream or offer fancy cakes or pastries. I told him "It's because they consider us close friends." In reality, it's because they were cheapskates.

Did they scrimp on the raisins too?

Posted on 25 Sep 2013, 08:50:02 BST
They did, rather.

Bah humbug! I hate the idea of scrimping with guests - that's always my favourite excuse to go over the top with my recipes!

I am definitely a disciple of Brillat-Savarin, Bear. While I have guests I am responsible for their comfort. If you don't want to offer people something nice, don't ask them round for a meal! She could have asked us round just for coffee and cookies and saved a bundle.

Thought I'd pop in for a cup of tea and a biccie, say hello.

Hello!

I'm okay, thank you. I've just been around, living, sorting some things out (I hope). Not very exciting, I'm afraid, but not everything can be

How are you, Pixie?

I'm good thanks Sam...you have been missed!

Hope your new house is well and truly "Home" now?

Still cooking and collecting books ( she says buried under a mound!)...new posters on here flagging them up and ain't I glad!

Posted on 25 Sep 2013, 12:55:14 BST
Thanks, Pixie. :-)

It is a home and I like that I can keep thinking about it and working away at it.

I heard on the news about a cookery book shortage and knew just what had happened. ;-)

Sam - if the cookery books are not enough to cause Pixie to implode, ask her about the Thermomix........

Glad you have settled in and hope the job is going well, difficult time for everyone but hopefully the climate will pick up soon, then everyone will be happier...
