This morning I was out the door before 8am, managed to scrape the ice from the windscreen and get to a local Farmers and Flea markets. It was all of 1 degree when I got there but I managed to pick up a few bits for our visitors arriving from Sydney later today.
There is something special about choosing local organic in season produce that just fills the soul isn’t there? A quick trip via our butcher to get a standing beef rib roast, bacon and eggs from their farm with bits still on them made the perfect basket.
Lunch today we are going to have a red wine beef casserole which I might throw into some ramekins with puff pastry over the top or I have some left over potato, leek and pumpkin soup with some of the potato sage and leek bread I picked up. There may or may not be a scone for afternoon tea and for dinner Rob is going to cook those rib eyes on the fire pit which we can have with those organic potatoes roasted up with rosemary and of course that delicious spinach. Bacon & eggs on that wholemeal sourdough in the morning & fresh coffee and no doubt many glasses of wine in between.
I love this. I am grateful for this. I am so lucky that we can do this. The produce, the friends, the entertaining, the celebrating, the eating. All of it.
Playing along with Maxabella.
