As I was watching tv I saw that program talking about comfort food.
Number one was chocolate, but number 2 : tea.
Yes, I’m laughing (friendly) at my friends who take their tea bags on holidays.
I don’t, as it never taste the same outside our lovely island.
But, I will not drink tea abroad (being french it’seasy to spend a week or so without my tea). And the rare times I drink tea away, I don’t enjoy it.
But after a week the cravings will be there.
And can’t wait to go back home and have my cuppa.
The fisrt thing I do after I dropped my suicases (honestly, I leave them in the car, and dh will take care of that later), I boil the kettle!!
I always make myself a decent cup of tea even before I reach my sitting room…..
I’m an addict.
So yes, tea can be comfort food.
Last winter, I was a bit traumatic for me and my family, and for 2 weeks I kept crying practictly non stop. And each time a friend offerd me a tea and toast (desparate measures, I always prefer in tough times a toast than a biscuit, can’t explain why) it did taste like heaven.
So, what is the most comfort food (drink) for you.
And you what is you crave for when you’re away?
I have to go make myself a cuppa.

Crisps or pringles…. well really pringles! If im down or having my period I ask dh to nip to the shop and would demolish a full large tub myself 😳 😳 😳 While watching some shite on the tv…. no wonder Im after getting so fat 🙄
My mum is like that with the tea, but she couldnt go a week without it. If she goes into Dublin City shopping she would have to have a cup or should I say tea pot of tea before lunchtime (about 11am) if not she starts to feel weak and dizzy 🙄 😆 😆 😆 😆 An drama in her life all you hear is "I need a cup of tea" …… Im more a coffee person to be honest and nothing like a good strong cup on stressful daysAugust 11, 2009 at 8:09 am #76459AnonymousInactive
Tea doesnt taste the same anywhere but home. What i miss are sausages. Wouldnt mind but i dont really eat sausages but when igo away thats what i would love. Some much so, sorted with the butcher to get some vacuum packed sausages for heading to France on Saturday.
Then my Skinny Latte, thought i would never get to Mahon Shopping Centre in cork on the way back from France last year. Every coffee in france is with cream. Fabienne am i asking for the wrong thing?August 11, 2009 at 8:34 am #76463
For the coffee you might not ask for the right thing as it’s easy (as far as I know, never had a coffee in my life 😳 )
but my friends easily get their black coffee
ask for : lait or cafe au lait for coffee + milk
cafe creme is a coffee + cream
and in France the milk is always semi-skimmed milk (you have to ask for full fat if it’s what you want.
Hope you’ll enjoy your trip in France.
For me I spend my year dreaming about my french sausages (saucisse de Toulouse (pork).
And in summer I want my merguez on bbq (it’s spicy sausages, normally beef not pork).
You have to try (easy to find in supermarket, not in restaurants)
