Comfort food is the theme for this weekend menu.

We were all teased with a hint of the summer weather, but it has now been chased away by bulging black clouds and below freezing temperatures.

When temperatures fall, close the shutters, start a fire and cuddle up this weekend with your books, movies and board games. Comfort is the theme this weekend and Food24 has found heart and tummy warming meals for you.

Curl up by the fire with a plate of pork bangers and creamy mash. Our blogger Pink Polka Dot serves hers with a sweet mint and apricot jam sauce.

Start your day off with baked eggs with tomatoes and bacon. Soak up the velvety yolk with chunks of warm whole-wheat seed loaf.

Use your leftover bread for lunch and dunk it into a bowl of creamy chicken and corn soup.

End off your lazy Saturday with a meaty cottage pie.

Stay warm and cosy in bed this Sunday with the newspaper and a plate of syrupy flapjacks. Try stay in bed till at least 12:00!

For lunch make something simple and quick, like toasted bread parcels with brie cheese and sweet peppers or for the kids, tuna melts.

End off your toasty weekend with this different chicken pie with cream cheese pastry ... gravylicious.
