Some locally made pork pie and Cox's Orange Pippin apples for tea with freshly baked rolls... heavenly. With the Christmas feasting not too far away we have opted for some healthier meals in the days leading up to it all. Having said that I will be working and undoubtedly eating far too many mince pies in the office. To counteract this I have bought in a large bag of apples. None of that papier mache Golden Delicious but proper Cox's apples for the crunch and flavour. I like to try various varieties out and Egremont Russets are also a favourite. We bought the pork pie from the market and after further debate we bought two more because we knew one of them would be demolished this evening. Some spring onions and a large mug of Assam tea completed the meal. Simple and tasty, what more could one ask. The dog isn't impressed because no scraps for her. However, late evening walks all week to feed the local swans and for her to chase various sticks plus only the occasional food scrap keeps her in fine fettle. She's not fond of apples unless it is to chase the starnge non bouncy balls...

I'm fond of apples - but, if there's a choice, chocolate will win every time.

Hope you had a lovely Christmas and all the best for 2011.
