Cheese heaven

After a long (and slightly poorly) week, I was in desperate need of some relaxation. So we had a lazy morning and eventually headed out the door about midday!

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!
