Ladies who lunch.

Yet another Ladies who Lunch day.    The farmer has been off walking with his group and I have been out with four friends for a Sunday lunch.   We do so enjoy our lunches together -all good fun, lots of laughs, passes a few hours in the middle of what for those who live alone is the loneliest day of the week - and now at four o'clock I am home again and thinking about getting tea for the farmer who had chicken sandwiches, crisps and a banana for his lunch on his walk.  My lunch was seafood tagliatelle and strawberry knickerbocker glory, followed by coffee and a home made chocolate.

There will be nothing more for me  until lunch time tomorrow when, dare I say it, I am going out again to lunch with friend W - this time over to meet our friends in Kirby Lonsdale in Cumbria.   We always look forward to such a lovely journey through such beautiful countryside.

Lovely weather has returned again after a rather wet day a couple of days ago.   Summer has been an almost non event up here in the North of England, although I understand the South has fared rather better.

One of the nicest things about living out in the country in a rural area is that whenever one goes out to lunch there is always somebody else there known to one or the other of us. It all adds to the fun of the occasion.

Enjoy your Sunday evening.

I do so love to hear the names of your British desserts and different dishes.

Knickerbocker Glory is what happens when Weave crosses her legs on the sofa.

Joanne Noragon said...

No, Tom, Knickerbocker Glory is an ice cream sundae by any other name. Truly, a glorious treat. I have been known to have a sundae for my main meal, followed by another for dessert.

I could just eat a Knickerbocker Glory now in a tall glass with a long spoon.

I love all the fun names for sweets in England.
Knickerbocker Glory, new one for me, Eton Mess, Fruit Fool, Flummery, Treacle tart
and my favorite name Syllabub.
Then there are the Fat Rascal plus the Rock Cakes in every Miss Marple book.
One of each please !

And do you think the Farmer would be impressed by thehamish harvesting skills ?
cheers, parsnip

Your lunch sounds delicious. I haven't had a knickerbocker glory since I was about 10 years old. Glad summer has returned to Yorkshire - it seems we may have quite a nice week ahead of us weatherwise and I hope that applies to your area too.

Like Heather, I associate Knickerbocker Glories with being between 5 and 10 years old.... and always eaten by the sea.

I think you eat very well indeed.
Always look forward to your accounts of lunches out.
I do think English food is so much improved lately - and so delicious!
Glad you are getting a little bit of better weather.

As a reader from across the pond, I would have loved to see a photo of those delightful things you ate!
