Chit-Chat Wednesday - CARBS WIN FOR COMFORT
If Agatha Christie is the comfort food of books for me, albeit in a sinister type of way… that got me thinking about my favourite comfort food. On a rainy day in Sydney this week I felt as if my spirits needed elevating - what better to achieve this than a big hit of carbs?
I think my ultimate comfort food meal is spaghetti bolognese and garlic bread followed by apple crumble. Divine! Just the smell is enough to make me feel chirpy about life with the basil, oregano, and garlic wafting through the house. Followed by piping hot cinnamon spiced apple with a dollop of yoghurt. Total perfection, non?
Daisy also loves it, purely I suspect because she can make such a mess with the spaghetti and sauce. There always ends up more on the floor and her face than in her mouth.
What is your favourite comfort food? Is it carbs like mine or do you hanker for more sophisticated fare? Do you like the sugar hit? Are you a Green & Blacks person or do you go for cheese? Do tell!
Do you know the lovely whimsical literary blog Her Library Adventures? It's Sophie's blog and well worth a visit as Sophie is having a fabbo give-away to celebrate her Etsy store reopening. Throw your hat in the ring with Sophie, leave a comment and you might win one of her goodies! Sophie is a self-described little-bit-50s housewife, a touch Alice In Wonderland and a smidge 60s lovechild. My kind of gal indeed! Her blog is vintage inspired, filled with beauty, literary and crafty type lovelies. She also has a truly impressive vintage typewriter collection. Love her! I always find Her Library Adventures a most inspiring place to be.
Enjoy your week and hope whatever food you do crave it nourishes your soul and is burnt up quickly in ferocious creative energy!
