Sunday lunch

What springs to mind when I say “Sunday lunch”? Is it the family sat round the dining table, tucking into roast beef and yorkshire puddings, or you relaxing at your favourite pub possibly enjoying a carvery? Whatever your thinking I can’t imagine it’s the same as our Sunday lunch today. In my previous post I told you that we’d just taken delivery of a frontier stove and how I couldn’t wait to use it. Well, I really couldn’t wait. I found myself a tasty little recipe for lamb tagine, packed a box with all the cooking equipment and ingredients and took it all up to the stables in Ilkley to give it a run out.

Once it got there I unpacked the stove, assembled it in a matter of minutes, found myself some timber and lit her up. While the stove was warming up I fashioned a table out of random bits and bobs that were lying around and got my food prep area ready.

To be honest, I haven’t cooked in many better kitchens. I know it’s winter and the in car thermometer was reading in the minuses, but having Addingham Moorside as back drop isn’t too bad.

Once everything was chopped I threw it all in the pan, placed it on the stove and sat back and read my Sunday paper.

A couple of hours later and we were ready to dish up. Funny how a fragrant big pan of food get’s a crowd gathered. A few of the stables regulars grabbed themselves anything that resembled a plate and formed themselves an orderly queue. We threw some cushions on the floor, plated up and got stuck in.

As you can see from the picture, I think they enjoyed it. Impromptu lunch, on a crisp Yorkshire winter’s day with a group of friends. Not a bad way to spend your weekend I’m sure you’ll agree.

I wonder what’s on the menu for next week?
