I was looking forward to tonight. Here is a place I like to come to if not that often. Tonight though we were here as it is my parents wedding anniversary. I collect the family right after work and head over to Longdon Green.
The setting here is always nice and the fire as usual is alight and crackling in the background.
My starter is served.
Home made black pudding and a poached egg in crumbs. It lovely, and for me a bit different to having patty or pawn cocktails that I like so very much, or is it the thousand island dressing I really like so very much.
Either way the parents like it here and that is what matters. I drive to allow my dad to have a beer or two.
For the main course I had something you may think is odd but I just fancied it. Cheese and onion pie.
And if there was not enough potato in that, I had a portion of chucky chips to go with it.
And yes we did have puddings, a treacle sponge which was meltingly wonderful.
