Christopher Robin said, "What do you like doing best in the world Pooh?"...
And Pooh, when he had thought it all out, said, "What I like best in the whole world is Me and Piglet going to see You, and You saying, 'What about a little something?' and Me saying, 'Well, I wouldn't mind a little something, should you, Piglet,' and it being a hummy sort of day outside, and birds singing."
(A "hummy" sort of day. Oh, how I love Pooh Bear.)
At a quaint little curio shop in the village of Goring-on-Thames we found The Pooh Cook Book by Katie Stewart. It's the cutest little thing, and the recipes in it are so simple and British and definitely Pooh-ish.
Yesterday, I decided to make something I'd never made before: Bread and Butter Pudding.
"...And we must all bring Provisions."
"Things to eat."
"Oh!" said Pooh happily. "I thought you said Provisions."
“It is more fun to talk with someone who doesn't use long, difficult words but rather short, easy words like "What about lunch?”
It was delicious! At the risk of sounding too much like Nigella Lawson, I'd say this is the ultimate comfort food. It's so sweet and warm and rainsin-y. Perfect for a rainy autumn day.
Ever tried Bread and Butter Pudding before? What's your favorite rainy day dessert?
