Love fish finger sandwiches, if you're really splashing out they're even better with cheese and marmite  ^-^

 :o :o   Got to admit I do like cheese and chocolate biscuits (must be McVites) and marmite and jam sandwiches even though I have to avoid both wheat and chocolate  ::)

I love big open mushrooms stuffed with pate and bunged in the over to heat through.  The toast with mushrooms and egg on top sounds delish.  Funny this is the first time when my depression has got bad that I havent went off food.   *^*  never mind off to make some lunch

Food, love cooking or hate it, we all eat. I am A depressive, and a chronic foodie!, Favorite food is two soft-boiled eggs, and Marmite on toast, that and a cup of Tea* ( Yorkshire Teabags brewed for two minutes) is heaven.

I have a great recipe for real ( not out of a jar ) Chilli if anyone is interested. For the past five years I baked Christmas cakes for my family as presents, this year I haven't a small prize for guessing why not. Yup, your right. I must be nuts, last year I did seven of them. ( I even make my own marzipan )  !+_

I'd be interested in your Chilli recipe :)

I love soda scones and cheese. My feel good food  =+-
I am only me. That is all I can be.
No more, no less, don't second guess.
I love, I live, I laugh, I cry.
I've wished sometimes that I could die.
Some days I'm funny, others I'm not.
Sometimes I'm in overdrive, and I can't stop.
You may not like me, but that's ok, because this is me and how ill stay.

OK , here's my favorite Chilli recipe.


One or two teaspoons olive oil ( or a small splash )
One large onion finely chopped
two crushed garlic cloves
two fresh chillies, de seeded and chopped ( or a teaspoon of ready prepared in oil )
two teaspoons ground cumin
one teaspoon ground coriander
one teaspoon paprika
pinch of cayenne pepper

large can chopped tomatoes
half pint stock (beef oxo cube )
ground black pepper
llb lean minced beef
can red kidney beans drained
 one tablespoon tomato puree.

warm oil in large saucepan, add onions and fry gently for five minutes, add garlic chillies and spices , fry for two to three minutes, stirring, add mince beef, and stir until browned.
Add canned tomatoes tomato puree and stock, stir well, bring to boil, add kidney beans,  reduce heat, and simmer for twenty minutes.

season with black pepper, and if you want to be authentic,  serve with rice, and chopped fresh coriander leaves.

Enjoy! =+-

Going to give that a go.

Yay! :(

I can tell I am going to be happy here; comfort food- marmite on toast (or even better crumpets, ideally soaked in real butter), peanut butter / fish finger / bacon / banana sandwiches (not all together I hasten to add).

Ok, I'm going to have to own up......I love food!

Bananas and golden syrup on toast! My partner made me this for breakfast yesterday and my tongue exploded in a heavenly burst of absolutely divine deliciousness! Oh it was good...

Curry, a decent power blend, a bit of garlic and tomato, it really is simple and quick. Failing that, kitkatts and lemon curd. Don't knock it until you've tried it.
