Brothers and Arms

The two boys are enjoying renewing their relationship.

Alex has decided to concentrate on providing the wine for our Sunday night dinners. Leaving Terry to make his wonderful mashed potato accompanied tonight by courgette slices lightly fried and frozen beans from last summer's garden topped with a knob of butter. Robert provided tropical fish parcels - snapper topped with banana and lime slices, shredded coconut and a little chilli powder, baked in a hot oven for 20 minutes.

The first game was won by Janice and Robert, the second by Terry and Jennifer.

Janice and Terry visited the berry farm this morning and bought raspberries and strawberries. The strawberries were hulled and cut in half then marinated in icing sugar and lime and vanilla syrup. The raspberries were made into a sorbet with a little sugar and egg whites. This was served with the strawberries and whipped cream - both dairy and coconut cream to cater to various tastes.
