Door Frame, Mincer and Bee

30 Jul

On our walk into town today we were amused to see how the door frame has been so carefully shaped to fit the old stone wall.

In the vintage store, Daisy Rain Vintage, where all sorts of treasures can be found, was this old mincer, enamelled and really rather lovely. The one we had at home was just a grey metal and I remember well making mince using it.  Any readers remember same?

The bees love our sunflowers on the allotment where I harvested enough beans for dinner, another courgette and a cucumber and all the shallots which I will plait up for storage tomorrow.

    My mum had a mincer like that to put on the kitchentable! Long time ago! Happy Sunday!

      Lots of us have the same memory – lovely! That really pleases me – another beautiful thing, a shared memory. 🙂

    My parents had a white enamel mincer – not as old as that one though! Every Sunday night my Dad would mince up what was left of the lunchtime joint along with a raw onion and a couple of carrots for a cottage pie. It was my absolute favourite tea!

      My mother used to do the same! Roast on Sunday and mince on Monday!

      Of that brings back memories! I had forgotten the ritual mincing of the roast leftovers for cottage pie on Mondays! 🙂
