Mixed bag weekend

So how was your weekend?  Ours was lovely, the weather played ball and we were able to enjoy some good walks.  Saturday we went to the Norfolk coast for the day. It was cold but sunny and not too windy so we walked for 3 hours then went to the Lifeboat Inn for lunch.  I am very proud of my "lunch" photos






Baked St Marcellin cheese with roasted cherry tomatoes and sourdough toast - me
Salt & Pepper Squid - Peter
We both had Smoked Haddock Rissoto 
look at the colour of that yolk!
Apple Frangipan Tart  - Peter
Cambridge Burnt Cream - me (bit like a Creme Brulee)
After lunch we drove around the coast to Wells next Sea





Then on to Cley next Sea to the fish shop for some smoked haddock - chowder for dinner tonight.

Sunday started out dull but very cold.  Luckily all the pathways are clear now so we were able to walk unhindered. Here are some comparisons

After our walk we spent the afternoon and evening in the garden room and I knocked off a few hats and mitts from oddments


Today we awoke to snow, first of the year.





Some of it cleared as the morning progressed, but it is now snowing again and is due to do so for the rest of the day!


I hate driving in snow so glad to be home from work. So stay safe, stay warm

  1. That sounds like a fun weekend. The snow is finally melting over here and we are hoping that it will stay away for a while.

  8. What a great weekend you had! That apple tart looks so good. It reminds me that I have some frozen apples from our tree that need to be used.

  10. How quickly the weather changed over this weekend you describe. But you were able to enjoy time with your family and that's what count, as well as time for your beloved knitting. The hats will come in handy during the cold spell.
