Thwarted in Belchford, Saved by Susan!

George and I often travel through the village of Belchford,
we take the back roads to Lincoln.

Today it was our intended destination.

This is one of the attractive village signs. (borrowed image)

We were making for
The Bluebell Inn, which  has a reputation for
excellent food and great service.

It is our 38th wedding anniversary
and the meal was a treat
from our daughter.

I had already had a sneak preview of the menu
through their website,
my choices were made
 I was really looking forward to
a cheese soufflé.


Two things were off the menu today.
The first was my preferred starter,
the second was the cheese soufflé
which was my chosen/desperately desired main course.

I was disappointed,
but I stopped snivelling and moved onto my second choices.

In all fairness
they were delicious;
but I still wished there had been a soufflé available!

You know what it is like when you get something into your head.

Imagine my delighted surprise when I read
My Mother's Apron Strings
latest features the most delicious-looking cheese soufflé...

Susan, you are a treasure.x

Soufflé is now on my home menu this weekend.
Watch this space!
I'll post the results of my efforts.

Jonny & Ming Ming, we'll Skype you tomorrow morning.

  2. Hi there
    First of all thank you so much for your comment on my previous post the day our cat left us. I know you know how sad it is!
    I've been reading your posts and congratulations on your son's wedding. Wishing all the best!

    Cheese soufflé is something ...isn't it? I'll be looking out for your next post. I am very partial to cheese souffle myself!

    keep well

  3. A woman wants what she wants. Looking forward to the results of your souffle. "Happy Anniversary". Deb

  4. You have no idea how my fingers have itched these many months to use this little rectangle!
    Happy anniversary.
    I don't cook, but I love to see what the real cookerer's are up to, so bring it on. It might need to be entered in the village fair. Well, its sibling. You know what I mean.

  5. The sign looks as if it's recently been re-painted, with a more up-to-date tractor! Lady Magnon used to make a cracking Cheese Soufflé.


Your comments are much appreciated and greatly enjoyed. x
