*Comfort Food*

I'm having a particularly bad few days at the minute, what with everyone in our house been ill, me not getting much sleep and generally feeling unappreciated and the general dogsbody.

So, tonight, dh is at work so I have made my favourite comfort food, which boring though it may seem cheers me up no end and that is

A good old sausage casserole with lots of potatoes and mushrooms in and a massive helping of steamed broccoli, carrots and cauliflower.

Then when then that has gone down I will be have a chocolate delight covered in chocolate sprinkles, whilst laid in bed watching 'Love Actually'.

Am currently sitting here with a large bar of Cadbury's (the kind with biscuit in, yum!) after a reeeaaallly frustrating morning with some annoying students. Am slowly gaining strength for the afternoon Another thing I love is (really REALLY thick) custard - that usually helps.
Other times I'll need savoury: baked beans are a particular favourite, I also love soft white bread with peanut butter (none of that for me right now though - I'm pg and asthmatic) or mushed-up Weetabix.

TwasTheNightetc...You sound like my type of person. Admire the concept of the whole gateau! Something I have only done in fantasies (well, the ones that don't involve Sean Bean...actually, Sean Bean and Sara Lee gateau...there's a concept )
