|Barley Water rocks!|
Len and Elsie would sometimes move the dining table out onto the patio under Len's grapevine on a pretty day in summer. The vine would provide some nice dapply shade under which to eat lunch. Their back garden was a place we would love to sit in the Summer sun in the afternoon and catch a few rays while digesting a nice bit of roast beef or pork. Even if it was really hot we'd still have a cup of tea around 3 or 4 pm and a biscuit or two. We English are strange like that.
|Tom's Cabin, R.I.P. We hardly knew ye.|
While I am sad and a bit miffed to see Tom's go, let's hope that whatever takes its place is decent, serves good food from local sources and not out of a packet, and does not have a cold-dead-hand-of-big-business atmosphere about it - because that would turn a real loss into a dead loss.
Lastly, there are only two more days until the new Name This Food! Get your thinkers on, people. What is it?
