I have barely made myself so much as a cup of tea today. I have eaten out all day which has been lovely but I need to get back to the kitchen and back to the healthy food.
I took Harvey out for breakfast this morning.
We went to the new coffee shop which has just opened on Stone Street in Cranbrook called Cocolicious.
They made hot chocolate with soya milk – hurrah. I like the space and light in here, the decor and the furnishings. It may be a bit pink for some but I liked it. I do have a bit of a thing about coffee in a glass cup – I just don’t like it so next time I go in I will see if they have a mug instead. Monmouth has rather spoilt coffee for me in most other places so this coffee was slightly below par but I am probably being fussy. We both had a smoked salmon bagel and they were extremely helpful with making sure Harvey’s had no dairy in it which was appreciated. Mine came with dill in the cream cheese which I liked very much. I liked Cocolicious and will go back.At lunch time I took Lara out and we went to the Milk House with Lucy and Michelle. Lovely bread roll and excellent butter.
We each had a main. Lara and I both had “Lemon-thyme crumbed rose veal escalope with spring-onion mash, a pea shoot salad and roast tomato coulis”. It was very good. I am not sure I would choose to have the tomato coulis with it as the taste is quite sharp compared to the other flavours but I did really enjoy it. None of us fancied any of the desserts on the menu so we popped in to Cranbrook and went to Cocolicious for a cup of tea and a piece of cake. I had a little sponge cake with Nutella icing. Very enjoyable. The boys wanted a curry for dinner. I wasn’t very hungry so I just had a taste of the others curry; an onion bhaji, chicken korma, chicken bhuna, sag paneer and peshwari naan. Very good.
I am now completely stuffed and planning a much healthier days eating for tomorrow!
I love the teapot and tea cups. That is what I call a real afternoon tea. 🙂
It is indeed a traditional afternoon tea set up. Very pretty and enjoyable
