Dinner Out

The nuthatch

The nuthatch

The photo (I almost promise it’s the last bird shot for now) was one of a pair of nut hatch or zoro birds (see his bandanna around his eyes) that visited today.

We have been cooking again in preparation for the Llandeilo Christmas fair on Saturday. We dashed out for dinner with friends after . We had bangers and mash, which I love. Our hosts offered 3 varieties of sausages and it would have been rude not to try them all.

Made by a local butcher who is renowned for his sausages they were superb. This along with a great pud and some good company made for a very nice relaxed evening. Erica and Paul, our hosts live in a lovely cottage tucked away in a secluded valley. They have been collecting animals over the years and have 6 tame sheep (one is called Sam!), goats, chickens, guinea fowl, ducks and two dogs. They have ‘retired’ (ha ha, replace that for swapped lifestyle) and now run a smallholding and holiday let.

  1. Hi Sam,
    Don’t apologise for the bird pics – I for one love them. I can imagine how busy you’ve both been in preparing for your next Market. Glad you had an enjoyable evening with your friends, it’s a great way of trying out new foods as you probably wouldn’t have 3 sorts of sausage at home.
    Loved the phrase ‘collecting animals’!

  2. Hi Wendy
    Since we moved to Wales we have seen so many birds feasting at the bird table.
    We enjoyed our friends company last night -a welcome change and they do ‘collect animals’ 🙂
