A nice Sunday lunch
With both the (adult) kids home today to see their Mum after her 3 week trip to India as a volunteer helping build a school, it was time to have a lovely Sunday lunch. We got a great rib of beef from the local butcher which was cooked to perfection by Janet. Two great bottles of a 2003 Cote du Rhone from Jean Luc Colombo went down a real treat with the beef, veg and roast potatoes done in duck fat a la Nigella Lawson.
The big mistake I made however was with the dessert wine. Janet had made some lovely sticky brownies and my choice of a Muscat de Saint Jean de Minervois was just plain wrong. Although pleasant it just wasn't strong enough to cope with the brownies. It didn't spoil the meal however.
The conversations ranged from our daughter's impending move into a new rented house, through Jonathan's new business venture to Janet's India trip. I love family Sundays like that.
