Comfort food

It’s funny but predictable that when I start to feel sick I head for one of two things, yummy eggs or hot jello. (Search yummy eggs if you want the recipe. It’s gluten free. 🙂 )

My dad used to go in the kitchen and start making navy bean soup when he started get sick. My sister heads for the chicken soup or eggs goldenrod.

I don’t know if other families do this but I know mine is predictable.

When I was a kid I was always disappointed that dad’s soup wasn’t blue. My logic said that navy bean soup ought to be blue but it wasn’t. It was just a boring white. And he never used a recipe. He just through stuff in and made it. So I have no idea other than beans and milk and butter.

I can’t remember what my mom did or my brother, I wish I could.

My favourite comfort food – Yummy eggs

Druids should eat things that are good for them like eggs and milk so here is an easy recipe to make with an adult called Yummy Eggs.

4 eggs

1 cup milk, you can use 2% milk

½ teaspoon of salt

1 tablespoon of butter

Beat eggs until light and frothy

Add milk and salt and beat

Cook over boiling water in double boiler for 20 minutes.

Serve with toast and juice and what ever you need to make a good breakfast. Also  makes a great light supper.
