Everybody's doing it!

Sunday was a perfect day. The weather was gorgeous and so we went for an early morning walk around the lakes. We took a bag of bread to feed the fish, then filled the bag on the way back with what looks like the last of the blackberries - but they were huge ones.
Sky should always be this colour - except at sunrise and sunset.






Then it was back to an afternoon of pottering around in the garden.

And finally, I decided that I would do what everyone else who has been to see "Julie & Julia" has done - and that is make Julia Child's Bouef Bourguignon.
I haven't bought the book (yet!!) so I used this recipe from the internet. It looks a bit long winded, but I think that's just the way its written. I found it a bit salty (I suppose thats the bacon), but it was totally delicious and was scoffed in no time - followed by our forraged blackberry crumble.

A bit of a lie in, a lovely long walk, the sun on my face, a spot of foraging, gardening, time spent with my family, cooking to feed my brood, sharing a nice bottle of red - What a perfect day.

What a lovely day and gorgeous pictures.

Blackberry crumble 'yum' - did you mix it all together to make a big swirly purple mass or do I just do that? I think I've just answered my own question!
