Day 249 – An Old Friend…

One of our favourite places to eat – The Fox at Newport, Shropshire. It’s basically a smart pub, but serves good ‘home-cooked’ food, and has a great atmosphere too. Hard to resist if we are passing by, as we were today! Needless to say it didn’t disappoint…

Day 243 – Best Lunch Ever…

My favourite lunch – carpaccio of beef. We chill it for a couple of hours in the freezer, cut it thinly and then flatten it between sheets of cling film. Then serve with rocket leaves, parmesan cheese and a home made mustard dressing. Tasty!

Day 149 – Another Day…

… another meal out. Well, it would be rude not to meet with friends for lunch when asked. This is one of our current local favorites, and we weren’t disappointed. Trouble is, none of those chores are going to get done at home if we keep going out…

Day 143 – Eating Out Again…

After 2 weeks of fabulous food during our 2 weeks in Cornwall, it was back to normal today. However, with no food in the fridge, lunch out seemed a good idea, so it was off to our favourite local restaurant. Halloumi Fritters and salad was the dish of the day and tasted pretty good.

Day 139 – Oldie But Goodie…

Today was the last day of the 2019 Cape to Cape tour for classic cars, and the 40 cars involved passed right in front of the restaurant where we were eating lunch. Started in 2004, this is a charity fundraising event, with the cars and crews traveling from Cape Trafalgar in Spain to Cape Cornwall. The Triumph TR6 is a favorite of mine – I used to work on the fuel systems when I was an apprentice…
