For me it’s springrolls. I have been eating the same kind of springrolls ever since I was a kid. My mom taught me to do them myself. I love them and I can eat that ever so often, all year around. Always feel like being home whenever I make a batch of them. Always stock up my freezer with em.

A proper lamb curry. Not the guff from the takeaway or anything with the meat cooked separately, but slow-cooked shoulder of lamb with a delicate balance of spices in a tomato and onion gravy. Takes at least 6-8 hours to do it properly but a thing worth doing is worth doing well.

Chicken fajitas..not from my childhood but I absolutely love them. Me and OH always snuggle up on the sofa with them and some wine after a bad day. We have been known to have them three times in a week!! :O

Other than that, every couple of months a blow out Indian take away. Chicken tikka masala, some kind of lamb dish (try a new one every time!) sag aloo, onion bhajis, naan bread, pilau rice. And of course Popadoms and mango chutney to start! Mmmmmmmm now I’m craving curry at 11am (and feeling a pig haha)

@Emily_Louise_C:  I’m always craving curry. If I didn’t have such a horrid cold, I’d go and make one. ๐Ÿ™‚

@Emily_Louise_C:  I had Indian food yesterday and the day before. I might mix it up with a Thai curry today.

@allyfally:  From what I hear, authentic Indian food is rarer than hen’s teeth in the US. You have to look hard for it in the UK (most of it is Anglo-Indian, which is tasty but inauthentic) but we have a far higher percentage of the population from the Indian sub-continent.

I don’t have a food that reminds me of home really (not that I would want that either). But I love spaghetti and meatballs, I love the labor that goes into them and then sitting down to eat them. I love eating things that take me all day to cook. I also love yellow cake with chocolate icing and a glass of milk.

For me, any soup. I love soup, stew, chili. It is my favorite especially when it simmers in the crock pot all day and you come home and your house is all warm and smells delicious.

My mum’s rice pudding with nutmeg. She makes it for me when I go home and it’s soooo good.

Another thing is proper sushi. I could never get full eating that and it’s so delicious!!

Harvest stew!  It’s a beef stew filled with fall veggies like butternut squash & sweet potatos, along with the usual beef stew vegetables.  I’m drooling now…
