During a day trip to Leeds, Helen & I stopped at Mrs Atha's for a hot drink. Mine was a white chocolate from the Kokoa Collection.

Fresh, home-made pork carnitas (with avocado slices thrown in), approximately like this:

...with home-made salsa, of course (I throw in some achiote for a bit of the Yucatan).

 

And Pepsi.  I don't imbibe that many soft drinks, but a two-liter was left over from Easter.  :)

If it's ok to post an old just been eating, here is a picture showing what our in hotel breakfasts were like this week just gone. Magic unfolding table with a hot cupboard underneath, and lots of courses. This was breakfast served in our hotel room. Very civilised.

And just to add context here is the view from the window behind my husband then.

We were in Edinburgh to attend the annual book festival.

Teriyaki pork kebabs grilled over a peach wood fire. Sadly, no green peppers were ripe.

Today we had roast chicken with roast potatoes and carrots, peas and gravy. There was garlic involved too and a splash of wine in the gravy.

Sounds tasty!


I had some "il sette virtu" (seven virtues), a traditional, fairly complex northern Italian minestra paired with fresh-baked soda bread (I was out of yeast). A much better pairing than one might think. Oh, and some Burgundy.

Sounds tasty and complicated!
 

In Abruzzo, a special minestrone called le sette virtu is made on May Day from all the leftovers in the larder. It contains seven kinds of leftover dried pasta, seven kinds of dried beans, stock made from seven types of preserved leftovers of pig (such as the feet), seven kinds of fresh vegetables (including artichokes, fennel and fava beans) and seven fresh herbs.

Just back from my birthday lunch in Visocchi's Italian cafe in Broughty Ferry, on the edge of Dundee in eastern Scotland. I ate too much :)

Pasta with creamy sauce and mushrooms, followed by raspberry pavlova sundae and Venetian hot chocolate and marshmallows. I feel quite over stuffed and may not eat again for days! I have been losing weight - intentionally - since late April, and before going out today had reached another new record low weight. I have already declared I will not weigh myself tomorrow!

My husband also had a great pizza and ice cream bombe to follow.

Just made a pot of tea using the loose tea we got free in two mini caddies after our recent Afternoon Tea at the Palm Court in Edinburgh's Balmoral Hotel. First time I have ever made loose tea. My granny used to make it in the 1970s and I hated always ending up with tea leaves in my cup. This time worked much better - a strainer that really worked, and tea that turned out, well, tea like! It's a mild Ceylon blend that we chose on the day in Edinburgh, and this version at home tastes just like then. Two teaspoons of tea in my mini pot for one gave two cups. Drunk in my finest China mug, and eaten with healthy Belgian speculoos biscuits and cookie dough dip from my Graze box. Yum. May repeat this mini tea ceremony next week.

Sounds awesome!  I was reintroduced to such when i was in Gourock in April, 2014. I need to make a batch of "Scottish Tablet".

 

The Scots are just great people (in my experience).

Definitely! Also, very simple, in its way. I normally make a "3.5 Virtues" (or thereabouts) version. Very hard to get all "seven" of all ingredients in there. That said, everyone loves it.

 

I originally started making it for "May Day" celebrations (what it was designed for). However, it was so popular that I make it year-round. The main thing is to get the sauce/broth right. After that, the rest pulls together.  :)

Tonight we're having an early St Andrew's Day (tomorrow) celebration meal, with haggis, neeps and tattles.

For the haggis we always favour Macsween's, and tonight the pair of us are going to be eating the 2-3 person version. It can be cooked in the microwave, but I find that can be uneven/unreliable. So even though it takes yonks I prefer to wrap the haggis in foil, and cook it in the oven in a water bath for 75 minutes.

Strictly speaking for the neeps we should be eating swedes which are not the same as general turnips. But for convenience we've got microwave veg, and it looks like it's normal turnips. Plus mashed potato (tatties).

Haggis is often served with whisky sauce, but we're not doing that this time. I may have some whisky though ...
