A cup of tea, and a piece of home-made sourdough bread with home-made jam. This is what I mean about "food that makes you go wow!" If you offered me a cream cake, I'd say no thanks, I prefer the bread and jam.
Admittedly, the jam and bread both took a certain amount of time to make. But you can get the same effect if you can find really nice bread and jam in the shops. I don't mean Tesco's Finest. I mean in your local bakery, a farm shop or farmer's market. There might be home-made jam at the church fair or school fete. It's not expensive. It just takes attention, and the will to break the supermarket habit.
