Family Friday - Comfort Foods

I know that in light of yesterday's post, this is a bit of a contrast but we all need a little comfort now and then!

All families have little traditions or quirks or just things they do in a certain way. In our house, one of those, is that when someone is ill or the weather is turning cold, we have a bit of a thing for cream of tomato soup and cheese sandwiches.

I don't know why, it just seems to be one of those things that we automatically turn to for a comforting lunch. A big bowl of steaming soup and cheese sandwiches (always on white bread too with lots of butter....oops!) to dip in it. Both my husband and I love it and so do our kids.

When its just myself and the kids eating, I will often be completely lazy and heat the soup in a Pyrex jug then just put that in the middle of the table and we all reach over to dip our sandwiches in! (Sorry but the less washing up the better in my world!!)

I was feeling pretty grotty yesterday, which is what inspired this post and as you can see from the picture, I was feeling lazy too. It had been a while since we'd had a soup and sandwich lunch so I really, really enjoyed it (as did Dennis!) and for some reason felt like I needed to write about it here.

I'd love to hear about any little 'traditions' or comfort rituals or foods your family has, let me know in a comment. The title has also just reminded me of the series Jamie's Comfort Food - has anyone else been watching it? Jamie Oliver made some absolutely delicious looking food!
