Hi everyone,

My lunch today was a Blue Cheese, Black Grape & Poached Pear salad with some Candied Pecans. It was very tasty. I also admired the beautiful flowers around and about. A blaze of colour. :-)

Hi Grace,

Thank you. I don't know how they make the 'Blue Cheese' - I might have a look now you've mentioned that - and yes, the tulips were so vibrant and red. Lovely. :-)

Hope you're having a great day.

Zest :-) xx

Hi Zest, I love the sound of the poached pear salad, blue cheese is made by adding a mould grown on bread. (I know because I can't eat it LOL)

The flowers look fabulous and someones gone to a lot of effort to achieve that and I'm glad that you're enjoying your day. 😊

Hi Jerry,

Thanks for explaining how the Blue cheese is made - interesting! :-)

Yes, the flowers are beautiful - and someone has gone to quite some effort to create that lovely display. I appreciate the fact they did that.

Hi Hidden,

Thanks! I'm not sure if I've had the 'Bosc Pears' before or not. I don't know what the pears were in my salad, but they were poached in red wine, and very tasty. Yum!

Wow, that sounds lovely, I could just eat that, where did you go that served that meal? Just wondering if it’s in reach when we are out and about.

Gorgeous tulips, we have two tubs of white and pink tulips just under our kitchen window, they make me smile every time I see them : )

Hi Visitingcat,

I am in Guernsey in the Channel Islands, so it might be a bit far for you to go for that lunch. Not sure where you are.

How nice that you have the White and Pink Tulips to see every day - I love seeing flowers and they do brighten up a day.

Hope you have a really good day.

Yes, a bit far from the North West lol, I love a nice unusual salad, candied pecans oooh : )
