Miss Eagle has had a difficult couple of weeks with illness. It has been the sort of time when one thinks of comfort food. So, at one stage last week, the comfort food light bulb went on in Miss E's head. Ahah! she thought. And she took this photograph to show you. This week, over at Photo Friday the topic is addiction.
Miss Eagle thought about this and decided that this comfort food would fit the bill. You see Mashed Potato and Pumpkin with Vegemite in it is a sort of latent addiction for the majority of Australians. You see, it goes back a long way in the psyche and the food memory bank. Before tinned baby food, this was what Australian babies were regularly fed.
Vegemite is an acquired taste - or should that be a not easily acquired taste - for those who have not been eating it since infancy or early childhood.
Vegemite features in other comfort food such as soldiers spread lavishly with butter and topped with vegemite.
And then there is Vegemite Soup for whatever ails you.
