a really good film

By Alice on Wednesday July 15th 2009 at 10:45

We watched The curious tale of Benjamin Button last night which tells the story of Benjamin Button, a man who starts aging backwards with bizarre consequences.

image

It’s a brilliant film, filled with some truly touching stuff about impermanence, love and loss.

the aah factor at Alice Palace

By Alice on Tuesday July 14th 2009 at 09:02

There are soooooooooooooooooo many cute designs available from Alice Palace - et le volia!

image

The term cute is about something that is not only aesthetically pleasing but also something that puts a smile on your face and makes you feel good. “Adding cute into one’s day is all about adding that bright spot without which a day could be decidedly dull and gloomy. It’s the little things that make grown up life a bit more fun!”

We went to eat at 5 North Street in Winchcombe last night and it was DELICIOUS - we went for their 7 course surprise menu.

image

Before the 7 courses even began we had a Welsh rarebit appetiser and then some very cool mini loaves of bread arrived - one loaf was brown and one was white and they were attached! You can just see the ends in the photo below….

image

For the seven courses we had:
1. Gazpatcho soup
2. Roasted hand dived scallop, ham hock 7 leek terrine, celeriac 7 parsley puree, violet mustard dressing

image

3. Rabbit of some description!
4. Elderflower smoked salmon, Salcombe crab, Quail egg, fennel cress salad, sweet pepper dressing
5. Best end of local lamb, rolled slow cooked breast, rosemary carrots, mash, lamb reduction
6. Selection of cheeses, oat biscuits, wine jellies and chutney (there were 8 different cheese ranging from mild to blow your head off!)
7. A selection of lots of yummy puddings including some tingley popping ice-cream and a shot of strawberry soup - yum!!
