Coffee Break #21 Getting Over the Christmas Binge at The Green Coffee Machine

It’ fair to say that the last few days – actually, who am I kidding - the last few weeks have been one big binge! This morning was supposed to consist of a ‘wildlife walk’ out at Daylesford Farm with lots of fresh air and a chance to stretch our legs; but upon opening the blinds, the rain was pelting down, so we opted for a walk up to the local coffee shop for some breakfast instead of heading out to the country.

Something a Bit Special #4 Christmas Arrives Early at Court Farm Shop

I love a visit to a farm shop anyway, but when it’s coupled with a Christmas event and lots of food tastings – well, that’s just absolutely fine by me! So, having spotted on social media that Court Farm Shop were doing exactly that, we decided to stop by.

Local Eat Treats #22 Roast Dinner with Two Yorkshire Puddings at The Swan at Coombe Hill

It’s not often I get out for Sunday roast but as I get older the craving for a roast with all the trimmings is becoming more frequent. And when I say all the trimmings, I mean – ALL the trimmings. I’ve never really understood this rule of beef goes with Yorkshire and turkey with cranberry sauce. Actually, I think you’ll find Yorkshire puddings go with absolutely all roast meats and cranberry sauce doesn’t go too bad with most of them either.
