Yesterday was mainly taken up by shopping. And today? A bit more shopping 🙂 although of a different kind as well. As I wrote in an earlier post, we went to Kilburn High Road this morning. But that was not all the day was about.
The plan for today was to go to Queen’s Park Farmer’s Market for lunch. As we had a late morning, we decided to skip breakfast and go there directly to see what we could find. We got on our bikes and off we went.
As usual, the market was quite busy, though not overly busy as the more famous markets tend to be. We did our ‘traditional’ trek around the market stalls to see what catches our eyes before settling on something to treat ourselves with. Today our choice fell on spinach and feta pie for Michael, potato, onion, cheese and (cannot remember) for me, and a red pepper quiche for Christabelle, all from the Old Post Office Bakery stall.
Christabelle and I also grabbed an ice-cream each (vanilla and honey for me; mango and passion fruit for Christabelle) from (I think!) Opera Ice-Cream.
We also decided to grab some stuff for lunner(?) – our early dinner before Christabelle was off. Our choice fell on lamb burgers from Brockelby’s. We also grabbed an apple strudel, cherry Bakewell tart and blueberry cheesecake from another stall for dessert.
The last thing we grabbed was a bottle of cider (which I thought smelled rank, but then what do I know? :P).
Having got enough food for the day we then cycled off to Kilburn High Road for some shopping, before making our way home. This was the route we took:
Back home we just relaxed till it was time to get cooking around 3pm. the lamb burgers, with roasted potatoes, onions and red peppers were absolutely delicious! The recipe followed was a bit of a mish-mash. But hey! It turned out excellently (if I say so myself :P). The desserts were just as good (I loved the apple strudel!)
It was soon though time to say goodbye to Christabelle. I went with her to West Hampstead to put her on a train to King’s Cross (the Jubilee and Metropolitan lines were, obviously, down).
Goodbye Christabelle, and come back soon ;). And of course, thank you Michael for letting us enjoy time together :).
