When you think comfort food, you usually do not think of tea and toast. Yet tea (or coffee) and toasted (or not) bread is often the easiest compromise when nothing else appeals. You can tart it up with jam or syrup, maybe Marmite, maybe Anchovy paste or just margarine. Of course if you are feeling really brave, and don’t worry about your cholesterol – real butter.
Growing up, there was nothing nicer thn thickly cut slices of bread, spread thickly with butter. Today, bread is sold thinly sliced and tastes of cardboard. Butter has become a big no no. Oh, well at least there is still chocolate!
