A quiet day at the castle. Nick and Petula take a slow breakfast, revelling in the relative quiet since the much celebrated departure of the builders. Petula is putting together today’s menu whilst I wander around the house admiring the new windows and bedroom carpet thinking about what to do next and finally deciding to wash the car – well it was overdue anyway. After all that hard work out in the cold I’m looking forward to lunch, and Petula has put together one of my favourites – broad beans topped with slices of grilled goats cheese – a classic, tasty dish.
After a short break Petula and I decided to head off to the shops to buy a few bits and pieces and have a sneaky coffee at our favourite café. Dinner was a Quorn and mushroom stroganoff which was a great way to end the day – doesn’t it look really saucy in the picture! If you want to give the stroganoff a try you will find the Recipe Here. Go on, try it – you know you want to!
