w/c mon 8 June 2020
The theme for this week’s menu is “colourful”. It may seem like and eclectic mix but when choosing the menu I was drawn to bright, cheerful colours. Maybe I wanted some vivid colour to enliven the dull, chilly weather?; maybe I just needed to inject a bit of life into the monotony of lockdown; or may be because I was so happy this morning to find the most beautiful cluster of tiny bee orchids in our field which our wonderful gardener has nurtured and protected from enthusiastic mowing, curious children and a lolloping puppy.
Whatever, the reason, I find nothing more energising and happy than vibrant colour so I hope this week’s menu brings a smile to your face and puts a spring in your step.
