Where I've Been & What I've Been Eating
I've just returned from a wonderful 10 day holiday abroad! It was very hot at my destination, so you'll note there are an unusual number of frozen desserts pictured here. Above a Melon & Pims sorbet with melon slices and mango sauce.
Super-rich three scoops of vanilla ice cream ( creamier than any I've had in the US) with extra large mint leaves!
Is your mouth watering? A combo shot of vanilla ice cream and black currant sorbet.
Slow-roasted tomato appetizer.
Delicious garden vegetable pizza.
Top-notch cheese board with oat crackers and apple jelly.
Incredibly tasty apple and rhubarb juice (please make this available in the US)
Full vegetarian breakfast with vegetarian sausage (I'm giving it away).
Homemade sponge cake (OK...you must have a good guess by now!).
Pitcher of Pims!
Flake 99 ice cream at Hampstead Heath.
As I'm sure you've guessed by now, I 've just returned from a 10 day holiday to my homeland, England. My cousin's wedding was the big family reunion event, but I also enjoyed catching up with many friends and family I haven't seen for many a year. My first trip back in 11 years was the perfect summer holiday. It was in the 80s and very humid!
Got back yesterday afternoon and the jet-lag is really upon me. I'd love to hear any jet-lag cures you'd care to share.
It was wonderful to be home - I almost felt like I'd never left.
England is so beautifully green and lush and I have to say the food was really outstanding.
It was my first vacation alone in a million years and I can't tell you how much I needed it! But it's also very good to be back home with the kids.
