Cornish Language, Produce and A Special Dinner

03 Jul

Our buses are teaching us Cornish phrases!

Our Allotment community is really lovely to be a part of and their generosity remarkable.  I went down to collect a few Mange Touts for dinner and was given some Strawberries and beautiful freshly podded peas. What a colourful collection.

Daughter No 1 is with us this weekend and we are celebrating her birthday which was in March! Confit duck with fresh allotment veg and  Cornish potatoes from our local greengrocer and a Blueberry and Strawberry Pavlova. It’s 8 months since we were able to be together so this meal has been a celebration of that as well as her missing birthday.

    Several of those strawberries are heart-shaped. Perfect!

    That pavlova would be perfect for our 4th of July celebration today!

    Nice to be with family once more. My sister flies to the UK from France to see mum and dad next week – lucky duck – but we might all do the Skype thing, which will be nice.

    Love that Pavlova. Now I’m ”hungry” for desert. I wonder if there’s a spare cake in the pantry?
