One of our favourite places to go is Tenterden Garden Centre.They have a huge shop, lots of cool stuff to look at and plants to buy, and a lovely cafe called Planters. We've been there several times and I've written about it on this here blog more than once because usually it's just that good.
We went there the other day and as usual we perused the specials board. I went for the Smoked Trout Salad, Sis had the Steak and Ale Pie, and Laura had the Roasted Vegetable Quiche. Two of us were happy, and one of us was a bit disappointed. See if you can spot which one was less than impressed with their selection.
Now, Sis and Laura did get to share a big bowl of veg, but Laura was of the mind that she could have knocked up a quiche better than that, and this is a woman who does NOT pride herself on her cooking ability. I am inclined to agree. All of our meals were around the £8 mark. Mine was massive, and delicious. Sis's was pretty huge too, with a lovely deep-filled pie. But Laura's quiche was seriously lacking. I've always enjoyed Planters, but this time was a bit of a downer. Let's hope this trend does not continue.
