Then I made Queen of Puddings because it’s such a very English pud and you hardly ever come across it in restaurants. And I served English, French and German cheeses. Vee remarked that she’d never eaten biscuits with cheese before. I did consider the matter, but resolutely served cheese biscuits and served it after the pudding, not before. Englishness was the point of the meal (I know the courgette dish wasn’t very English, but the other point of being English is that we take good things from anywhere).
Elle also wanted a proper English breakfast, so we had bacon, eggs, sausages, mushrooms and tomatoes followed by toast with local honey and home-made marmalade. Tonight, we are having fish and chips, from the chippy. And tomorrow, they intend to head for the local cafe in search of brunch. I’ve got to play the clarinet in church tomorrow, so i can’t go with them, but I’ll be back before it’s time for them to head for Luton.
The birds really do think it’s spring. Maybe it is.
