Comfort food...



This to me is comfort food. :)  It reminds me of my grandma (whom I haven't seen since I was a child)  We would visit them up in the woods of Wisconsin where they lived.  They lived deep in the woods.  I loved it there...In the summer, my grandma would pick berries for us to have for breakfast.  It was such a special treat to have berries-n-cream.  Topped with sugar it was so wonderful. Even though I haven't seen her since I was a child (she is my dad's mom) eating berries-n-cream brings back good memories of that time.  Funny how food can do that. :)  To this day, the smell of dill takes me back to those good times in the woods and my grandma.  She had a cellar and she would can pickles and the cellar smelled like dill. :)  I loved it down there...

  2. That sounds wonderful. When I was a child my dad had milking cows and he would bring in the warm milk and pour it over our cereal - it was straight from the cow to the bowl. From the milk he would make cream, nothing like the cream you buy in the shops - this was "real" cream. I wish my children had experienced these things, but sadly the farm was sold and my dad retired no long after my eldest son was born.
