No time to blog yesterday as we were having a little dinner party last evening and I do like to get ready at my leisure. It is my birthday today and a friend is taking me out for the day, so this is also brief. But I thought you might like to see the menu for last night. When American blog friends publish menus it is always interesting to see how they differ from our menus, so thought my American blog friends might like to see my menu too. (UK bloggers can skip the next bit if they like)
Starter: Garlic bread with salad platters.
Main: Moroccan lamb tagine with dates, cous-cous with raisings, roasted red green and yellow vegetables.
Puds Citrus tart, pavlova with toasted almonds, fresh raspberries.
Cheese and biscuits (cheddar and Blue Stilton) and coffee.
I was intending to photograph the puds when I put them on the table, but sorry - I forgot!
However, it was a lovely dinner party with lots of conversation. Really enjoyed it!
I have been trying to photograph Tess after her visit to the Beauty Parlour. Every photo I take makes her look like a little rat (sorry Tess). Finally I managed to get one looking down on her as she peered through the paddock gate looking for rabbits.
Pumpkin will be posted this evening - the farmer has fashioned the face and will light it at dusk - so see you again later in the day. Have a good day - if you are in the UK make the most of it as the forecasters say this weekend is the end of the lovely weather.
