North face update...

This morning I put up a latice of bamboo stakes for the Broad beans and Snow peas.
Looking a bit more structured. I also thinned out the seedlings and used the shoots in a lovely bowl of soup for lunch....
It's great to have a garden Monday!

Work Dinner at The Park Hyatt...

A little while back I went to the Park Hyatt
for a work function with Mark.
I was able to take a few pix while we were there.
It's all very shiny and grand...lots of architectural features and art pieces.

This one is rather beautiful.
The entree was a Lamb roulade with salad.

The mains was either Chicken...

Or Beef...

Guess who...
Glamorous bathrooms.

A grand staircase.

Lots of mirrors and panelling.

Marthas' Beautiful Figs....

A couple of weeks ago a friend gave us some beautiful Figs.
 I cut almost to the base, through the middle(into quarters).
Then wrapped the base and sides with Prosciutto and stuffed the middle with soft Blue Cheese.
They were baked in a moderate oven for around 15-20 minutes ...
till the Prosciutto is crunchy.
 Then we enjoyed them with a glass of Rose
Ready for the oven.

They were really delicious...
