A very lazy Sunday morning was in store for us today. We had no intention of going out, so first job was to ground some fresh Italian style roasted coffee beans. I always keep a few whole beans in the freezer, in a plastic airtight container.
We are very lucky here, as Lincoln is blessed, not only with the usual array of Starbucks and Costa Coffee houses, but some very good top rated independent coffee shops, and two top coffee bean retailers, one of which roasts the beans themselves twice a week.
With the beans ground and the expresso on its way, I turned my attention to a very indulgent porridge. Organic rolled oats from Lincoln market and milk; with fresh cream and unrefined brown sugar to top it all off. Yum Yum.
So the morning had us settling down in front of the TV to enjoy Seven Brides for Seven Brothers, one of Caroline’s favourite musicals.
And if you have some beans left you can even practice your photography on them or if your feeling daring, go out into the garden and make Snow Angels.
