A day of food
Got up early this morning. The valley and hillsides were wreathed in a heavy morning mist. Went out to pick blackberries. We’re more-or-less into peak season for them now, and I didn’t have to go far to get a good pick. Going out so early (unusual for me), I was in competition not only with insects, but quite a lot of snails that seem to like them.
Late morning was the first tasting, as I went to the cheese fair, an event organised by our superb local cheese shop and featuring a lot of their suppliers. This year some wine, beer and cider producers were also exhibiting. Combine that with the hot summer weather we’ve had so little of this year, and I should just about be ready to zonk out for the afternoon.
But there’s more. This evening it’s a meal for Alan’s birthday, at the Royal Inn, one of our best local pubs. *burp*
