What with all the excitment over my chance meeting with Matt, star of The Restaurant Inspector and Darrell's birthday yesterday I have omitted to tell you about the rest of my morning in Bridgnorth on Saturday .....
I’d gone to “source locally produced fruit and vegetables” (that’s what they say on these Restaurant/Hotel Inspector and Three in a Bed type programmes) for our meals in the coming week, but I found all the lovely old buildings a little distracting, like the Town Hall ….
…. and the Tea Rooms……
….. and ancient hostelries and winding, romantic, steep pathways leading to mysterious places.
….. as well as abundant market stalls ….
….. and bakeries ….
Darrell was most impressed when I got home, “We shall feast greatly this week,” he said “Two huge freshly baked bloomers, several punnets of the most succulent strawberries, fresh from the fields of Shropshire and a humungous box of bashed giant mushrooms …. manna from Heaven” he sighed.
I had to explain that the giant mushrooms (which I intend to stuff), were not bashed when I bought them, the box was a trifle cumbersome and on my journey back to the car I buckled under their weight and dropped them, thus damaging a few.
What a brilliant morning! http://www.visitbridgnorth.co.uk/
