Willing Chefs

We knew while we were away that we wouldn't come across any veggie eateries, so we just took pot luck & hoped for the best...

We love carvery vegetables & were pleasantly surprised when we discovered that they were serving exactly what we both fancied at The Old Inn at St Breward.
The chef was really helpful & told us what we could have & also gave us a big bowl of vegan spuds (the main ones were cooked in beef fat) & a jug of freshly made vegan gravy. The stuffing was vegan too!

The pub always has at least 4 veggie dishes throughout the week & would be willing to put a vegan meal together.

We arrived at The Halfway House fairly late & found nothing on the menu, but after discussions with the staff - they managed to make a vegetable bake which they topped with sliced boiled spuds.
It was ok & we were hungry...

The best meal while we were away, was fortunately on our anniversary.
We called at The Rising Sun after our walk & swim, when asked if we'd like to order food by the barman - the whole pub stopped & stared at the word 'vegan'... We felt like we were starring in 'American Werewolf In London'. 
Amazingly, the barman said he'd ask the chef if he could do us something & soon came back saying he would!

It was delicious & rounded off our day perfectly...

We had a wonderful day, one that we'll always remember!

It's the first time in Cornwall that pubs have pushed the boat out & made the effort to provide us with a vegan meal - things are looking up!

Invisible Man

I love the summer. It's my favourite time of year. This year has been particularly bountiful with regards to long periods of uninterrupted sunshine and I have needed no encouragement whatsoever to step outside and sensibly and gradually expose my body to the rays. Over a period of many weeks I have gradually bronzed in a way that has been beyond my grasp for many years due to the whims and vagaries of the British summer. Finally, after careful immersion I have achieved a level of poise and confidence not unlike say mild smugness. Now don't get me wrong, it is by no means a deep tan, a swarthy layer of earthen masculinity but it is most definitely noticeable to those who may have whispered the words "pasty" or "wan git", It has been not just a surprise but a crushing blow then to discover that my new found glow has not only been completely ignored, but my lovely wife (who too possesses a not unenviable tan herself has been the centre of attention because of …

Settling In

We are loving our new little place and are feeling very much at home...
We gave away our juicer to a lovely friend, as our new kitchen is quite small. We do have a Nutribullet too, which is easier to clean and we start each day with a smoothie. These are pineapple, banana, kale, goji berry, pumpkin seeds, turmeric and spirulina.
We add a mix of water and home made milk to the ingredients. Delicious!

We have been reunited with our milk maker (which was buried in the jam room at Meadowcroft).  It's great making all sorts of milks again...  And the pulp goes into our porridge!
This one is brown rice and almond.
Porridge!!! Oats with hemp protein powder, chia seeds, ground flax seeds, rose hips, banana, apple, blueberries and water. Topped with milk, cinnamon, ginger and real Canadian maple syrup... Courtesy of our beautiful friend, Richard - who brings it over from Canada every year!!! ♥

An organic veggie feast - we are still getting our weekly veg boxes... Peppers stuffed with Puy …

Year Of Adventure

A bit late, but Happy New Year! :-)
We had a lovely time with all our kidlets over Christmas, which has made quite a change - the first time in years that we have all managed to be under one roof during the holiday period! 
We are so pleased that we could do this, as this was to be our last one at Meadowcroft...  Yes, not only are we buying our little French house (which will need lots of TLC before we move in), but we have decided to downsize to a small house overlooking the sea while we visit France and just enjoy ourselves!

We only made the decision at the beginning of December, which meant we needed to get busy decluttering...
Taking the opportunity to move from our big place in Boswinger to a small, very lovely, fully furnished one bedroom converted garage near to Mevagissey...

This was the view from our bedroom early this morning.

We were supposed to be managing the property as a holiday let for our friends, but after having a few days break here - we fell in love with it!!!
So…
