I've been away for a weekend to Swansea with my girlfriend to see her best friend and family, the weathers been a bit iffy so had to entertain our selves and a very energetic 3 year old. This weekend I've been a monster, a donkey, a camel and in general a child entertainer it's been great fun and an excuse for me to act 3 again! Must say though hide and seek when you're 6'2 isn't the easiest of games! Enjoyable all the same.
I've had a weekend off the bike and out of the kitchen but this gave me time to think of recipes and things I want to cover on bike subjects. There was one of the top 100 climbs in the UK right on our hosts door step, shame I hadn't taken my bike so I could cross it off my list. Oh well one to remember for summer.
Saturday night we we went out for food and drinks. I had a burger, almost as good as my blue cheese one. Then washed it down with a Mojito, they looked a bit shocked when I tried to change the recipe a bit asking for spiced rum instead of Bacardi.
We then moved onto the cocktails bar. Wow! They certainly put enough alcohol in them, the Mojito could of cleaned paint brushes there was that much rum in, I'm glad I'd not ordered that myself!
I went for a Pornstar Martini, after mastering my recipe recently (see the page on my cocktails section on here) I knew what taste to expect, theirs however tasted different, no Passoa, no lime, it was nice but no Kimbers Kitchen! Luckily they redeemed themselves on the Espresso Martini. It was amazing! the best I've ever had and I'll be working on a similar recipe when I make mine for the website!
I've just got home now it's a lovely place to visit in summer, I highly recommend Verdi's in Mumbles and if you're into your curries Chutneys is very good there too.
Thanks for a lovely weekend Bron, Tom, Jack and Ruby look forwards to seeing you in summer.
Now time to sleep and relax
