Blog This: Comfort Food

'Blog about your comfort food.  What is it?  Do you make it?  How did you stumble upon it?  Is it at your favourite restaurant?  How does it make you feel ?  Share a recipe,  restaurant review or about the last time you ate it!'

My comfort food is a basic one: ham sandwich on slightly frozen bread

Oh yeah, really living the high life there. But let me explain.

My great gran was always the one constant in my topsy turvy childhood. It was only my mum and I growing up, so I spent school holidays with my grandparents, much to my delight! I loved my Gran dearly, and the day she passed a big part of me went with her.

So it is no suprise that she is in majority of my favourite memories. Every christmas she would buy a ham on the bone, and for majority of January we would eat ham. She was never one for fresh bread, but always brought wholemeal Buttercup bread and had two loaves in the freezer. She would defrost it ever so slightly on the sink, and then make me a sandwich.

Now, when ever I need a pick me up, I eat ham from the bone (seeing as though I don't eat bread now).

  4. I've never been a fan of Xmas ham .... but i do buy two loaves of bread at a time and freeze one. Maybe i'm old before my time....

    Great entry!

  5. With loads of butter. Yeh, yeh, yeh.

  6. Initally, I was thinking... Frozen bread, WTF? But then I remembered, my Nanna's ham and cheese sanga's and they were indeed on slightly frozen white Tip Top! Dropped by via Blog This - love your work!

  7. Not a big fan of the ham here either. But it reminds me of my my nan, as does the frozen bread. great entry.

  8. I am totally the same. The only way to eat ham is off the bone thanks to my parents/grandparents at Xmas time.
