Strawberries and cream

So nice to have gorgeous British sweet strawberries with cream at the moment isn't it ? Such a simple combination, made in heaven !

What simple treats do you love that go together well ?

Simple pleasures

Gravy Queen, strawberries and cream has to be the number one treat. My second favourite treat and only occasionally, is in the morning when I love to fill a croissant with dark chocolate, put it in a warm oven until crisp and chocolate has melted then enjoy with a strong black coffee. Mmm!

Strawberries and cream

Strawberries and cream also is my No. 1. I bought some yesterday in Aldi's, grown in Kent and they were delicious. Another of my simple favourites is a lovely ripe juicy Nectarine. A croissant filled with chocolate would be too rich for my taste but I'm sure Janice you enjoy them occasionally.

Strawberries etc

I love strawberries and cream, also raspberries and nectarines. What else......vanilla ice cream doused with a liqueur.....cold jacket potatoes and cold roast potatoes. Like the sound of Janice's croissant too.

strawberries and cream

Yes that's a lovely combination, can't beat that one.
And all those fancy sandwich fillings about but you can't beat a good cheese and pickle. Fish and chips, boiled egg and soldiers, roast beef and yorkshire puddings. All simple foods but great combinations.
I wonder who put them together in the first place.

Food combinations

It's a particularly good year for strawberries this year so we've had our fair share already. Raspberries are my favourite.
A crumble we love to have is rhubarb and orange, with segments of orange in with the rhubarb and finely grated orange zest in the crumble mixture.

Strawberries and cream

T'do -- now that sounds INTERESTING! Sadly I passed by some lovely looking rhubarb at a local farm yesterday...will try your idea this week. Do you thicken fruit for crumbles? Cornflour or arrowroot?

Strawberries and cream

Had some great British strawbs with Cornish clotted cream (both from Tescos!) the other night. Native strawberries in season are SO much better than imported ones - and June is the best month for them, I think. So sweet and tasty!

Other things that go well together:

Bacon and eggs and Colman's English mustard
Salmon and watercress
Duck and citrus
Stilton and cranberry sauce
Spring lamb and fresh mint sauce
Chips and newspaper :)
Winkles and vinegar
