In the kitchen

I feel like I ate most of my favourite foods these past few days from a bowl: comfort food.

Apple crumble: the last apples (that were our Christmas tree decoration), and a handful of mixed berries thrown in for a splash of colour.

Our Tomato Soup, whenever someone is not feeling at their best.

IMG_0190Rice pudding with a sprinkling of sugar and cinnamon. Made it twice, because there is so much pudding rice in our store cupboard, and because we love it so.

We also made Turkish helva with some of our semolina stash. It takes a lot of continuous stirring, so best made after the little people have gone to bed. (Recipe from this book.)

Waffles, as per special request from the little guy.

The only comfort favourite that’s missing it pancakes – love pancakes. Must get some buttermilk and put pancakes on the comfort menu soon!
Until then, we have some leftover waffles to snack on.

    The tomato soup picture is great with that little hand on the spoon. The Turkish helva looks interesting – have never tried it before, but think I would like it from the description of it that I just read on-line. It its sweet, I’m there!

    I was just thinking about making some rice pudding ahead of the nasty-ish weather that is headed our way. (We might even see some snow which is unusual here in Texas.)

    I would take everything from the comfort food you´ve shown here. It looks so delicious and how sweet this little guy! So süße kleine Speckhändchen😉

    I love knepfla soup as does my youngest, but it is tedious to make so I haven’t done it much lately. It is a German-Russian food that our ancestors brought with them to this area of the US when they came to settle the frontier of the Dakotas.
