Our destination was Borough Market, near London Bridge. It was full to bursting with people (and amazing stalls). The mission was simple: bread and cheese for an indulgent evening :) Given my recent lack of cheese in my diet, this seemed like a fantastic idea! I tasted loads of cheeses (and a few saucisson secs too). I picked a good range of cheeses and a huge loaf of crusty bread. We also decided to buy some exciting looking mushrooms for a risotto.
|I was too busy enjoying the market and sampling the cheeses to take any photos! But this is what the cheese looked like when we got it home (before unwrapping, obviously).|
|And here's the mushrooms|
Along the way there were a couple of diversions - lunch ended up being: a super-huge Red Leicester cheese straw, a cream filled donut, fresh lemonade and two empanadas. In that order. Yum yum!
Then there was a lazy afternoon, mostly involving a sofa and the TV...
Dinner was a-ma-zing...
|Mushroom and asparagus risotto. Not cooked by me :)|
|Our dinner! How exciting...|
|This cheese was so yummy (and liquid) that it started to leak once cut open!|
