It’s summer, it’s hot, OK, it was hot and now it’s just wet, and I had my usual 2 weeks off which for the most part was spent in the garden building decking.
But one day we did venture into Cardiff and decided to have lunch in the recently opened Alchemist.
Apparently I had a birthday recently, and apparently it was for a number that scares some people – I just saw it as another day and maybe a different box to tick on a form.
The birthday itself went off like any other day, came home, opened a couple of cards and a couple of presents from my Wife – some hot sauce, some Edinburgh rock and a mini drone! Followed by a meal in Table Table.
This weekend we went out with the parents and had a huge lunch at the Lamb and Flag in Wick (near Bridgend/Cowbridge).
So yesterday we went out for Sunday lunch, a quick(ish) trip over the mountain to one of our favourite pubs, The Coach and Horses at Llangynidr.
Usual thing, a set menu selection for Sunday but never a disappointment, until yesterday – the menu contained 1 vegetarian starter and no Vegetarian mains, well so we thought!
After trying various microwave meals over the past few weeks in preparation for coming winter months (a hot meal at lunchtime when its cold or wet outside is comforting), I decided to make my own versions to take to work and heat up.
This week we have a quick and simple meatball and tagliatelle in tomato sauce – this made enough for 3 lunches.
