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.
