It was a complete joy to wake up this morning at 7:30 am, look out of the window and see this lovely view from the bed.
I had porridge for breakfast made with 30 g oats, 100 ml soya milk, 100 ml water, 1 tsp chia seeds and 1 banana which I served with 1 tbsp coconut nut butter, 1 tsp ground flax seed and a passionfruit. Quite a bowlful of flavours. Which worked.
Which I enjoyed sitting in the bay window looking at the boats in the harbour.
I was excited about this morning. I went to Sandwich to Aunty Marion’s for a coffee and 2 of my cousins, Katie and Hannah were there too. It was a dull and wet morning so Aunty had lit a fire and very cosy it was too.
I had a coffee and resisted the biscuits:-). And we chatted and chatted and chatted. Which will come as no surprise to anyone who know us.
Hannah had to go to work after a while and Aunty Marion, Katie and I went in to Sandwich for a potter about and lunch at No Name restaurant. Which is above No Name Shop which is on No Name Street!
The shop is wonderful and I could have bought nearly all of it. It is owned by a French man and stocked with delicious French cheeses, French jams, quiches and oils. There was also No Name bread,
No Name saucisson,
No Name Olives and you can see the weekly market through the window,
No Name Croque Monsieur.
A yummy cheesy treat, perfectly cooked. Lots of cheese and good ham but not too rich. Just. It was delicious.
And we had heart shaped tomatoes because I asked if I could take photos for my blog and they wanted it to look pretty. It looked great anyway but that was a cute touch.
I really enjoyed this restaurant. And obviously the company. I had a wonderful day and was sad to say good-bye to my lovely cousins and Aunty. But we all had lots to do this afternoon so had to part ways after lunch. I was busy at the house but had this great view to keep peaking at.
Dinner was more leftovers. I am rather fed up with my leftovers, even though they are tasty. I am looking forward to cooking fresh foods again this weekend and I will make smaller quantities. I used up the last of the pork from Sunday and some left over brown rice. I fried tender stem broccoli and a leek with oyster sauce and I warmed the pork up with some plum sauce.
Served with heated up rice it was a tasty supper.
I have been watching Masterchef while I write this and feel rather despondent about my cooking skills! And presentation. I enjoy my cooking and eating and find it relaxing rather than stressful. I certainly found lunch today relaxing and extremely enjoyable at No Name.
