    Four Horseshoes at Thornham Magna- big lunch

    Written by

    Went for a walk around Thornham and popped into the Four Horseshoes - a Greene King pub -mid-afternoon to find their carvery still in full swing. It runs all day and is £10 for a plate enough to keep my teenage son happy.  Good choice of nice veg but we are starting to spot the obvious but fatal flaw in a Carvery - how do you keep the meat moist and juicy?   We have to keep choosing the fatty Pork Belly (which was quite tasty) as everything else looked a bit dry...

    11th August 2020 - Ten years later and we return here to Eat Out to Help Out. We sat in the very lovely pub garden and the young staff were simply delightful offering a smooth and upbeat service. Food was good although I had the steak and mushroom pie which was really a tasty casserole with a puff pastry lid. Beers are excellent so I had a pint of Woodfoode's Wherry and a pint Earl Stonham Brewery best bitter.

    ...but made this at home with mulberries from the freezer because the puddings are never this good.

    Often go to this bakers in Eye, just the thing to warm up after a cold morning out but would like to have more time to go to the cafe down the road  - how is the coffee?

    Have you noticed? Unlike asparagus and strawberries now these are truly seasonal and grow like weeds. I dug these up before the ground got too hard and made a delicious lunch with a grating of Lincolnshire Poacher cheddar on top. Mmmm...

    Rabbit Hunting - part one

    Written by

    Well, not so much hunting as waiting for them to come for the carrots.

    Rabbit Hunting - part two

    Written by

    That is the problem (and advantage) with killing your own animals. You have to face the fact that it was once alive and it makes you eat less meat, which is a good thing. It wasn't easy - a huge arguement with my son, frozen hands and now the last thing we want to eat is rabbit. So into the freezer until the memory has faded, but I am still hoping to run over a deer.

    Went to see The Social Network and tried to get a pizza afterwards but full of Office Christmas Party people. Haven't been to Carluccio's yet and it was ok, but they need to slow down - we practically had the card machine before we finished dessert. PS. If you don't work in an office but would like to go to an Office Christmas Party it's not too late - we can organise one?
