Quote for Easter ~Monday

Today is yesterday's effect and tomorrow's cause. - Phillip Gribble


Yesterday's Easter dinner was a triumph. I used a recipe from the book of British Food to roast the leg of lamb in honey, ginger, fresh rosemary and red wine (recipe called for cider but we haven't any). The resulting gravy was fabulously weird and went very well with the gratin potatoes, carrots and peas,and yorkshire puddings. A very good bottle of Prosecco (very dry) had absolutely no bad effect overnight.


After a walk in the sunny period promised for today, the lack of a pudding yesterday was rectified by MWNN when he returned from a swoop on Morrisons' for ciabatta with a big apple pie.


No hot cross buns have been harmed in the making of a fine Easter Weekend.


Hope you had/are having a good one.
