It’s all about the cheese!

What is it about cheese that makes everything all right with the world?cheese

SC loves cheese, the stronger the better and as long as I generously sprinkle it over his food, I can pretty much hide the fact he’s eating the dreaded vegetables – mostly!

Much as I love my cake, I have to say if there was a choice between cake and cheese it would be a tough call but the cheese would win – unless it was cheesecake of course 😉

If I’m feeling a bit blurgh my favourite go-to food would have to be cheese on toast, and I’m sorry to say I like putting baked beans on the top.

SC’s favourite food, in fact he would eat it every day if I would let him is cheesy pasta – just cooked pasta with grated cheese stirred and melted in. One quick, easy and filling supper – for the record I do add the dreaded vegetables to mine!

And yes, one of my favourite Monty Python sketches is the “Cheese Shop.”

I’m just an old fashioned girl …

…goes the song.thatched cottage

With an old-fashioned mind. Not sophisticated, I’m the sweet and simple kind.

I don’t do sophisticated. Simple…that’s me 😉

I like old-fashioned 😉

I like the idea of courtship – getting to know someone, what makes them tick, all their idiosyncrasies – I believe if you want to build a firm basis for a relationship, you need to know, understand and accept the other person for who they are.

I like the idea of being wooed – and for me it doesn’t mean flowers and chocolates and expensive dinners and gifts. I’m not easy mind – but I like simple things. A man who can make me laugh even when he tells corny jokes. A man who can bring a smile to my face when I think of them. A man who is content with just cuddles and kisses sometimes. A man who can hold my hand and make me feel like I mean the world to him. A man who doesn’t roll his eyes when I talk to him about problems I may be encountering … I could go on.

But relationships are not all about me, me, me. I know I’ve been in enough where it’s all been about them, them, them.

I like the idea of being part of a team and I’m a firm believer that relationships are about building a solid partnership that works on communication, respect and trust.

… and yes, I want an old-fashioned house with an old-fashioned fence – love old properties, especially thatched with white picket fences and roses round the door 😉

… but you know what – you can keep that old-fashioned millionaire –  I just want someone to be my best friend, who loves me for me and someone who makes me happy 😉

Comfort Food

You know, the kind of food that makes you feel better if you’re having an off-day.

Obviously, as I don’t do chocolate it’s not that.cake

So what’s your comfort food?

Mine really depends on the level of my ‘off-ness’!

See today, just feeling a little bit low – cold (still haven’t defrosted from this morning’s school run), worried (nothing unusual there then) and just a bit off – I’m in a “I can’t be bothered to cook” mood. So when I’m having one of those days, my comfort food is cheese on toast with baked beans – reminds me of childhood 😉

Generally, I go for savoury ‘pick-me-ups’ – Marmite cashew nuts, salty crackers and the like.

But sometimes, just sometimes, it’s just got to be cake!

The ‘gooier’ the better!

Carrot cake with frosting or coffee cake (hold the walnuts though). Cupcakes work too 😉

I’m thinking I’m going to be needing cake soon 😉
