Sunday we enjoyed some roast lamb given to us by a neighbour, the generosity never ceases to amaze us. A long slow roast with a garlic and rosemary marinade and it fell apart. It really was tasty and enjoyed with some fresh mint and spring onion from our little garden. We have grown three varieties of potatoes so these were also served whilst we gave each variety a taste test. We enjoyed the process.
Cauliflower cheese, carrots and green beans served as side dishes making for a very tasty traditional Sunday lunch.
A sprinkling of chopped nuts adding to the texture and giving it a lift. A strawberry cake made and shared with neighbours for afternoon tea. It was so much fun to visit and catch up with our neighbours adventures who have been enjoying a tour of the art galleries around the Island.
Yes, I did enjoy a small slice but did work hard in my aerobics class to work it off.
Work continues outside in small bursts and then I come inside and work a few rows of my crochet project. I am kept busy and for that I am thankful.
A quiet and reflective weekend enjoyed with friends.
See you soon.
love me some deserts, these look so good. Your shawl is pretty. Yes, crocheting does provide us with some creative down time. I am thankful also when I work the hook,I don't like not having something on it.ReplyDelete
I feel full up just looking at that lot, lolReplyDelete
Sounds perfectly lovely and it is wonderful how neighbors help and support neighbors in your community. I don't think you'd ever want for anything if it was in their power to help. Those desserts have me wishing for trifle and cake. Ha!ReplyDelete
Your food looks delicious ! Fortunately I just had supper otherwise I would get hungry !ReplyDelete
I always enjoyed lamb, especially with mint sauce, but we have stopped eating red meat entirely and are slowly becoming more vegetarian, so I doubt very much that I will ever eat it again.ReplyDelete
Lovely. Lovely food. Lovely neighbours. Cannot better that.ReplyDelete
Roast lamb is my absolute favourite meat. My mouth is watering at the thought.ReplyDelete
Oh, how delicious your Sunday lunch looks! Wow, to be your neighbor! Now, I think I shall go make a strawberry cake inspired by yours. :~)ReplyDelete
Your life sounds so sweet and almost whimsical. Like a storybook. You appreciate every moment of each day. The meal prepared is lovely. You work hard, yet enjoy the harvests of your labor, and know what is important at the end of the day. I love coming here. xoReplyDelete
oooh cauliflower cheese is one of my favourites, and your sponge and trifles look heavenly.ReplyDelete
I just made lamb and potatoes, too. Your baking and crocheting look wonderful. It sounds like you are very busy in your home.ReplyDelete
What a wonderful way to spend your weekend. Your Sunday dinner looks delicious. I rarely make a lamb roast.ReplyDelete
All of your mouth watering desserts have me longing for cake! I love hearing how kind your neighbors are. I'm sure they feel the same about you!ReplyDelete
This post made me very hungry... especially that strawberry cake! I love the color of your shawl, it looks like it is almost completed!ReplyDelete
Amazing strawberry cake!ReplyDelete
The roast lamb and baking make me drool. I have never tried roast lamb and long time have eaten butter or cream cakes. It is a blessing to have good neighbours and I am sure you are also a good neighbour to them. Your crochet is progressing very well.ReplyDelete
Oh that Strawberry Cake with whipped cream oozing out between the layers!! I always enjoy seeing what you make!ReplyDelete
Hello Lorraine. The lamb. The cake. The trifle. It all looks so delicious. It certainly sounds like you have found a wonderful and generous community to be a part of on your island home. I'm SO glad for you both.ReplyDelete
I love your crochet project and lavender is my favorite color so I REALLY like it.
Wishing you a wonderful Wednesday. Dennis is on vacation and so we're spending most of the week at the lake with Thursday being a day at home full of errands and a potluck at our house in the evening for our Bible study group.
It's wonderful to get all your produce so fresh, it must taste so much better.ReplyDelete
Yum, I do love a good roast and lamb is one of my favourites. The desserts look very tempting too.ReplyDelete
mmm to the cake!!! Your project is lovely and a beautiful shade of purple!!ReplyDelete
That roast lamb looks delicious. What a blessing to have good neighbors. Sounds like you had a lovely traditional Sunday dinner.ReplyDelete
How wonderful, sounds like a super weekend - the cake looks delicious:)ReplyDelete
What a perfect weekend!!!ReplyDelete
And oh, all that food looks delicious. Oh my, that cake!!!! Oh my!!!!!!! :-)
Yes, we too can see the earlier evenings. But happily, winter early twilight does not bother me. To me, it is cozy. Not so, my husband though. So I understand, when people are a little sad, to see it happen.
That is one good looking cake! Sounds like a great time catching up with friends. Jo xReplyDelete
Oh my! Your food looks delicious.ReplyDelete
It does seem strange to think that the days are beginning to get shorter, we must all enjoy summer while it's here :)
All the best Jan

Thank you for visiting my blog and leaving a comment. I thought of you in that picturesque part of the world when I was writing that last post...suspected it would make you smile. I suspect it's an age thing, not hearing quite as well as in my youth...darn! lol
I've been unable to leave comments on your blog while using my phone or iPad but this morning I was thrilled to discover that using the PC, I can! On the mobile devices I can't get my profile up and so when I try to publish the comment, the page refreshes and my comment disappears.

A GREAT SPELL CASTER (DR. EMU) THAT HELP ME BRING BACK MY EX GIRLFRIEND.ReplyDelete
Am so happy to testify about a great spell caster that helped me when all hope was lost for me to unite with my ex-girlfriend that I love so much. I had a girlfriend that love me so much but something terrible happen to our relationship one afternoon when her friend that was always trying to get to me was trying to force me to make love to her just because she was been jealous of her friend that i was dating and on the scene my girlfriend just walk in and she thought we had something special doing together, i tried to explain things to her that her friend always do this whenever she is not with me and i always refuse her but i never told her because i did not want the both of them to be enemies to each other but she never believed me. She broke up with me and I tried times without numbers to make her believe me but she never believed me until one day i heard about the DR. EMU and I emailed him and he replied to me so kindly and helped me get back my lovely relationship that was already gone for two months.
