Breakfast Like a King, Lunch Like a Prince and Dine Like a Pauper.





There is an old adage, I’m not sure who wrote it, Breakfast Like a King, Lunch Like a Prince, and Dine Like a Pauper.  Not in this house.  We breakfast like paupers (porridge or cereal), lunch like a king, and dine like a king.

At the moment we are trying to eat the garden before we shut up house in ten days’ time. For lunch today we started with chilled tomato soup, followed by a tomato, cucumber and grilled red pepper salad. Not forgetting the smoked ham and hard boiled eggs. The big Crimson Crush tomatoes are incredibly sweet and juicy at the moment. Tonight we are eating poached salmon accompanied by potatoes, chard and courgette. Raspberries, grapes, plums and nectarines provide us with dessert. It’s no wonder I never lose any weight.
 

We dined like kings

We had lunch indoors today due to the strong wind blowing and high temperatures. No sign yet of the violent storms forecast, they seem to be passing just to the west of us.

  5. That all looks wonderful. The Tomatoes we have are 'Supersteak', and are simply stunning at the moment. REMINDER: I must boil some eggs for lunch.

    Lady Magnon is probably off to Oz to look after a cute little baby! But I'm not sure when it's due.... April maybe.

    1. Not much of a storm was it. The dog came up and slept on the bed anyway. Looks like the rain will last all day.

    2. Disappointing, we were looking forward to some fireworks! Rain and cooler temperatures are welcome though.

    3. We had a hellova wind with rain plus T&L, there were four or five tiles off the roof! The lid blew off the water butt with the pipework attached and so the precious rain was lost.

    4. We just had the wind and a little bit of rain. Tiles off the roof is not good.
