Sunny, sunny, happy days!😊😍😊
Today we headed south to the coast for a picnic on the beach. We went to a beach at Bishopstone, near Seaford, and it was really lovely- not very busy and lots of little boats bobbing around in the sea. We even stripped off and got in, well me only to the waist as I am a bit of a wimp…..
However, what should have been a little over an hours journey turned into over 4 as the M23 closed at Gatwick. A small detour into a petrol station ensured we had a car full of snacks as we zig-zagged across the country, weaving our way up to Twickenham. I needed this when I got in…
Yesterday we were also off work and were going to have a picnic in the garden but it was full of little people having a run around! So indoor picnic it was, and actually better than outside as no flies to contend with.
For dinner we had some marinated quail:
I sprinkled the quail with ras-al-hanout, lemon juice, garlic and coriander. I simply grilled them till crispy and served with some olive oil roasted potatoes and a green bean and broad bean salad. We haven’t had quail for a while which is a shame as we always enjoy them. Maybe they’ll make more of an appearance on our dinner table in the weeks ahead!
I wonder how long this heat will last- I am simply melting ☀✳☀
