Traditional nosh

Visibility down to 50yds this morning. Thanks to the overnight rain and Friday’s muckspreading operations, my prior visit to the car wash proved a complete waste of time. Sat watching the girls on the gallops cutting up the ground ... I can imagine them returning to the stables, and horses and riders being hosed down much the same as the motor. …Having acquired a large parcel of pork, Mrs G. is busy in the kitchen preparing an old favourite: petit salé aux lentilles. While not exactly seasonal, salt pork seems more apt than spring chicken.
