Next week it is friend G's birthday, so today I took her out to lunch to a lovely pub quite near here in the village of Finghall - The Queen's Head. It is a lovely pub with a lovely atmosphere and a delicious menu!
Our visit coincided with the Bentley Owners' Club outing to The Dales, so there were some super cars in the car park. I have put on two photographs of our puddings (first course and main for us both was crayfish and apple salad followed by roast beef and Yorkshire pudding), G had the blackberry and almond tart and I had lemon syllabub with poached gooseberries. I thought I would put the images on to whet your appetites. I dare say the Bentley will whet a few appetites too.
The farmer has been on one of his group walks today and when he came back I had to laugh. It is usually me who does something silly but today it was him. He put his car in his cousin's yard (his cousin had told him to leave it there any time he wished to) and went off on the walk. When he returned the yard gate is locked and the house is all locked up. Have they gone on holiday? Have they gone out for the day? He doesn't know. My daughter in law has taken him up to another cousin's farm a few miles away as the farmer thinks he might have a key to the gate. I await the outcome, but we are supposed to be meeting our God-daughter in Sedbergh tomorrow for lunch, so it is exciting times around here.
