East Barnet

Talya came to fetch us from Arnos Grove and the first order of the day was breakfast. I then unpacked and Dave went to shower. Once I had showered and changed Talya and I went to Tesco. We did a top up shop for dinner and a few extras, like Cider for me. By the time we got home it was close to lunch time so a decision was made. We decided The Cock in Cockfosters would be ideal. A booking was made, kids hustled up and off we went. I had cider on tap.

Half pint of cider

Dave and John had beer on tap and Talya had lime and soda. I decided that my first British meal had to be fish and chips. Dave and John had the same, Talya and Maya had duck salad and Josh went with a pizza.

After lunch Talya and I went for a 4.5km walk around the park and when we got back we started on dinner, chatted and dealt with the laundry.

Just a normal day. Dave did bruschetta for snacks, with mushrooms. And supper was potato salad, green salad and chicken on the braai. Cheese and biscuits and lovely conversation to end the evening. The entire day was great but by 9pm it was bedtime for me.

I am passionate about using regional, seasonable and sustainable produce when I cook. I live in the picturesque fishing village of Gordons Bay with my husband and dogs. Dave and I visit new places on a regular basis to experience the food and culture of the area.
