I have two very good excuses to eat ice cream at the mo. Iz and Polly are on school holidays so we went to Tony’s today for ice cream. Polly chose lemon, Iz went for the watermelon and pistachio for me. Tony gave us extra spoons so we could taste each others too. We sat outside bourngiorno italia and made everyone walking by, slow down, stop and walk in to the shop. Delicious! £1.50 for a generous scoop.
Other local foodie treats this weekend – we ate eccles cakes and banbury cakes outside Redbournbury Watermill. They look the same but one contains only currants (eccles I think) and the other squashed raisins and dates? Not sure but both equally delicious. It was fun to watch the tractors going through the ford and sit by the millstream too.
Friday – a very long-overdue trip to the waffle house as an end of term treat. Good tip – its much quieter mid week tea time than at the weekends. Polly and I chose the classic spiced fruit waffle and iz went for bananas. Steve the sophisticated choice of mushroom.
The sun is shining, the parks are fab so hope you are enjoying some lovely local treats too! Let me know…
