Spring weekend

This weekend we had a lovely time. We've subscribed to LOVEFILM.com and received our first film. A French one called La Brodeuse or in English 'A common thread'. It had the most wonderful female lead with flaming red hair who always wore green. There were some beautiful scenes of her beading a fabulous garment for a couturier. There is more to it but I won't bore you with it here.
Richard spent Saturday at the boat and returned home tired & cold so I cooked up a feast for us.....Moussaka, purple sprouting broccoli and rhubarb & apple meringue tart.
On Sunday we went to visit our friends the Man's over at Manor Barns.
The fog lifted and it was time for a bath ...... well maybe not quite warm enough yet.and then a walk to the river. The sun shone, the birds sang and finally we took off our coats.

There is a bakery here that sells meringue pies- lemon, apple peach. It'a a very unlikely place to find such delicasies.

Hooray Roxi. So glad to have you back. The cooking thang was helped along by 10 years of working in restaurants and deli's.
