We both added a few extra pounds due to excellent food while we were on holiday, so it’s time to start eating healthily again… This tasted better than perhaps it looks in the photo – a halloumi cheese salad with nectarines, pine nuts and a sweet dressing.
After our great two week holiday in Ireland, it was back to normal today – unpacking the car, putting stuff away, and the inevitable shopping. Not my favourite supermarket, but at least it’s nearby and will do is for a few days…
… to speak to the man in charge, or the woman that knows what’s happening? Sign in a cafe in Nenagh, but certainly appropriate in our house!
I love great food, and tonight’s dinner at The Hinds Head was no exception. A small family run pub/restaurant where everything is cooked to order – no pre-prepared catering here! And a bonus – there’s been a Gin Festival on in the village, and the pub has a better than usual range available, with special prices for doubles. What’s not to like!
A ‘wrinklies’ day out – off to the Good Food Show in Birmingham, so a good excuse to go by train. Makes a change from using the car, even if it does take longer, and we had to stand part of the way back as the train was over-full… Still, a great day out overall, and here is the obligatory railway photo.
… and wine on. Saw this sign in one of our local pubs today and was rather amused by it. A glass of wine is definitely recommended for helping one stay calm. My new favourite motto…
On my own at home today as ‘The Boss’ was out at a baby shower. So a perfect opportunity to indulge in one of my favourite lunches – beans on toast. Even better as it was home made bread….
