We are back from two weeks of adventure in Paris and London with my brother and his family, capping it off with two days at Wimbledon to see the early rounds of tennis. He and I used to dream of going to all of the grand slam events when we were teenagers. Tennis was really big back then.
Yes, they do eat strawberries and cream at Wimbledon. And the strawberries were fantastic. Not sure what the cream adds.
They also served something called Eton Mess, a delicious mix of whipping cream, mangled fruit and broken up bits of meringue. But, more on that, and other food adventures at a later date.
Yesterday, for our first meal after we got back, Tom made one of his best "go-to" recipes, Orechiette with Broccoli Rabe and Sausage, while I did the laundry and we worked our way through the mail.
It is great to travel but it is also wonderful to be home.
