A veritable feast

We had our best buds Charlie and Jaime round this weekend, along with their oh-so-cute baby Finley. As it was Sunday, we did roast chickens – yes, two of them! – with various trimmings. We started with dolcelatte mushrooms (I’ve mentioned these before, they’re the future!), but Fin turned his nose up at them. It was more than that actually, he threw them down his trousers.

We then had the roast dinner with half-homemade bread. Fin appeared to approve more of this dish, as he half mashed, half ate it.

It’s a bit of a cheat, but I used James Martin’s red onion and balsamic vinegar bread mix in the breadmaker, then made them into a tear ‘n’ share loaf and popped them in the oven to finish off. It was delicious, but a bit oily.

To finish, Barry made his current pudding du jour, strawberry pavlova. As we don’t have a mixer at the moment, he keeps beating the eggs by hand, which takes an age, but I’m sure it’s better than weight lifting at the gym.

A normal photograph was good, but Instagram makes you want it more. I don’t know why.
