Picnics and BBQ

Birthday dinner underway

It was my birthday this weekend & I was due to go camping . In fact the bags were packed, and in the car but predicted lightening storms and huge motorway delays caused a brisk change of plans. Carbon conducts electricity you know.

I was a bit sad hadn’t gone camping when I woke up the next day to see blue sky but a bacon bagel and cup of tea always cheers me up and headed out the the Derbyshire Dales for a day of walking.

Birthday Lunch

My birthday lunch Stilton and Chutney sandwiches (the chutney bought at on our holiday in Settle – food is definitely the best souvenir ) eaten half way round a walk between Youlgrave and Lathkill Dale

Traditional Derby Step stile
For dinner a BBQ using up the marinated lamb we had planned to take camping , I am a girl of very simple tastes… lamb marinated in wine garlic and rosemary . Skewered with red green , yellow peppers and white onions . BBQd and served with a coriander tomatoe and cous cous salad. Eaten with a large glass of red wine and the best company . I am older and wiser these days and just another year closer to the big one 30
