No beef about Monday.


I seem to have blogged quite a bit tonight but hey-ho, it has done no harm.

The roast beef was just fine, I turned it down towards the end to ensure it was not roasted right the way through, and I let it settle a good while before carving.

The beef was absolutely divine! I had put in rosemary, coriander, garlic and grain mustard and all the flavours worked! The wine just finished it off and the piccalilli did the trick. Sandwiches should be top!

This is a pic' after carving and the detritus you can see is roasted garlic, little bits of rosemary and those nice chewy bits one gets when cooking beef carefully. I like the way the light reflects in the surface of the wine.

My thanks and respect to the cow; I hope you were a happy beast.

All in all a very happy start to the BS5 week.

Dude, they are in focus when I take them and they're still little on my phone but then when I d'l them and they get all big, it just isn't the same and they can't cope with Blog action. I think I need a proper diggie cam.

Miss M - I hope your mid week missions are easy on you. Were you in Colombia last week rescuing FARC hostages? That was nice work.

BS5, I regret that I am unable to divulge my whereabouts or details of my missions. I hope your sandwiches were truly scrumptious today.
