Yorkshire Day

So Monday was Yorkshire Day. It was also the first day of August. This year has slipped away so very quickly.

Anyway since we are Yorkshire born and bred we made some Leeds Parkin from my Yorkshire Teatime Recipe book. which I bought at the castle last week.

I used up some porridge oats the eldest son had used in a cookery lesson at school last term so it wasn't quite to the recipe and it was a bit dry around the edges but all in all it turned out pretty much OK.

and look - some beans from the containers in the yard.  I'm super pleased to have finally grown something that we can eat.

That looks good, homegrown beens are so good.
