Hollows posted a plain doughnut over in the observations thread-- got me to thinking about other foods/experiences and how it seems like there are people who want everything to be super fancy gourmet, and sometimes it's just not necessary.

Share your simple pleasures, foods and drinks that are simple and accessible to just about anyone.  I am looking forward to the lads across the pond sharing theirs.

I'll start it off -

I have seen several food trucks, and while I am sure they are great a grilled cheese doesn't need to have kimchi in it, or some other hip ingredient -- all you need for the perfect grilled cheese is the following :


Grilled cheese.


The cheapest white bread available and two slices of American cheese -- the whole thing brought to a crisp golden brown with margarine. Serve with Campbells condensed tomato soup on a cold day, or kosher pickle spears on a warmer day.


Coffee

I enjoy really good coffee, but occasionally I crave shitty gas station drip coffee with powdered whitener, and sugar. It's not 'good' -- but its comfortable.

We suspended Direc TV for six months to save some $$$ so I bought a rabbit ear antenna for my tube- I'm really surprised how much there is to watch- all of those shitty shows I grew up on in the 70's and 80's are all there.

crap coffee- I spent so much time drinking it, I really don't enjoy it- for the younger generation.....spend 20 years drinking that garbage and I bet you wouldn't like it so much.

Good old fashion butter on those grilled cheese Bob 😁

Growing up in AZ -  refried beans and flour tortillas made with lard, they used to always make them that way and now almost no one does. Not especially good for a diet, but they taste so good.

Always reminds me of my mom—it's her favorite too. My grandma likes to put a tiny bit of raspberry jam on grilled cheese and passed the habit onto me... sooo good.

In no particular order...

Fresh doughy white bread spread with beef dripping and Marmite.

Soft boiled eggs, white bread toasted soldiers with butter.

Stepping on a frozen puddle breaking the ice.

Looking out to sea.

Sat in the pub by the fire after a long walk on a cold day with a pint a few potatoes roasted in goose fat and wet dogs curled up asleep around your feet.

Skimming stones.

Springtime.

Baked custard tart.

Backgammon.

Threading a large button onto a loop of cotton and spinning it between your hands.

Popping Himalayan Balsam seedpods... its like therapy.
