Pettaugh Fiesta

Written by

Usually I write about things afterwards, but this time I'm giving you prior notice. A fete at Laffitts Hall in Pettaugh. Well, a mini arts festival really, but with home made tomato soup lunch and afternoon tea with home made cakes. You have to pay to get in but it's in aid of the village - churches or something worthy.  There's going to be live bands, karaoke and an outdoor cinema. See you there.

Blueberries in Hepworth

Written by

Found out that we can buy fresh local blueberries right on our doostep here in West Suffolk. Jo Garden grows them at Hepworth www.gardenberries.co.uk and makes the best blueberry jam there too. She also sells the bushes ( currently on a special offer) if you want one in your garden to sprinkly a few on your cereal every day. Of course you can buy blueberries cheaper in supermarkets but it's a bit like blackberries - why would you buy them from a supermarket when you  can get them from a farm or a hedge near you?

Party Food

Written by

Here is the dip and the vanilla cream terrine made from the yoghurt, which is now coming to an end. It really was the thickest, tastiest and most versatile - so I am converted. See Madame Maincourse's comment to find out exactly what she did. Recipes later.

The Fiesta in Pettaugh

Written by

A small but lively event in a small but lively village - with really good cakes (especially the gingerbread) and hot chocolate or tomato and basil soup to sip while we watched the cheesiest outdoor cinema I have ever tasted.

Pizza au Feu de Bois

Written by

Probably our final garden campfire of the year this weekend - and talking about the new pizza restaurant in Bury got us hungry. So we made our own dough, used up some old cheese and a few olives, smoothed down a little space in the coal and cooked our own.

Eye Eye

Written by

Had a little wander round the shops while my son played football and bought a whole chicken from this butchers. I've shown him how to joint it and make coq u vin with some of it, saving the rest for another meal. It was £6 - way more than a supermarket but we could certainly taste the difference. Grow my own veg but the sign on the shop opposite was tempting too as have just been on an apple hunt with my sister. Found lovely sweet wild ones that were just like Gala - apart from the holes.

Black Beauties

Written by

Been out for blackberries after reading that there are about 140 different types out there. The writer lived in London, recommended only picking above waist height (!) and suggested you buy sweeter varieties from a supermarket as the wild ones have to be cooked to be sweet - lol...
