Everywhere around me I see signs of impending spring. The daffodils are opening, blossom trees flowering, new leaves are appearing on my roses reminding me I really have to prune them. But I have to say, those plants must be able to feel something I can't because it still feels darn cold to me.
And as such, comfort foods are calling. We have been enjoying hearty soups, warming curries and rich casseroles each night, not to mention the odd delicious hot pudding. So when I saw that crumpets were on special, I didn't waste any time getting them home and into the toaster. A hot crumpet smothered in rapidly melting butter and honey has to be one of the most cozy snacks ever created.
Cold weather may not be my favourite thing, but it certainly is an excellent excuse for some truly delicious comfort food.
Is spring arriving near you? And what is your favourite comfort food?
