Each of us has the right and the responsibility to assess the roads which lie ahead, and those over which we have traveled, and if the future road looms ominous or unpromising, and the roads back uninviting, then we need to gather our resolve and, carrying only the necessary baggage, step off that road into another direction. -Maya Angelou

Three days of rain, freezing south westerlies and cabin fever setting in with a vengeance. There are only so many DVDs you can watch at any one time.....tending the fire and having a chronic attack of "the munchies"
The only travelling I am doing is in my head, remembrance of places,sights and tastes of colourful Mexico warm my soul.
What can I cook, I need some comfort food.
It has to be good old Bangers and Mash with onion gravy. The gravy is the key and loads of butter and cream if you have it in the spuds! To hell with cholesterol.
Caramelized Onion Gravy
Big knob of butter.
2 thinly sliced onions
Flour to thicken
Marsala or red wine
Melt the butter and fry the onions gently till golden brown and soft. Add some flour (about a tablespoon) and stir into the onions, add the Worcestershire sauce, Marsala and stock cook gently for 15 minutes,stir occasionally. Pour over crispy pork sausages and soft fluffy mash.Hmmmm comfort food at its best !
