My youngest daughter, Alice, has just berated me for not including her absolute favourite comfort food in my previous blog about potatoes! So just for her . . . .
Milly Molly Mandy was a series of books written in the late 1920’s about a little girl who lived with her parents, her grandparents and uncle and aunt in a little house with a white picket fence. She had lots of adventures with her friends Billy and Susan – and her mother used to make for dinner baked potatoes with cheese. The books were Alice’s favourite when she was small and remains her comfort food even thought she is now 30! I am now doing the same for my granddaughters so another generation can enjoy – and I read the books to them whilst they are eating!
Milly Molly Mandy Potatoes
Bake a potato (you can actually do this in the microwave as it will go under the grill or into an oven to finish) . Scoop out the middle and mash with LOTS of butter and cheese and season and pile back into the skins. Grill or put back into the oven till golden. Serve with absolutely anything!
