Thursday is fish night at The Nettle (ordinary menu options are also available). Sandford came over to chat to us and told us what fishy and seafoody delights he had been able to acquire. Ooooooh. Please, please, please can I have a seafood platter,even though a fish platter doesn't appear on the menu??????? Yes, said Sandford. Of course you can. We settled down with a glass of beer for The Builder and a glass of wine for me to consider what else we might have.
The Builder had a quandary: fresh mackerel or a beef and prawn plate? Have both, said Sandford. I'll do you a mackerel starter.
And so that's what he did:
|The Builder's mackerel starter|
|…and his amazing beef and prawn plate|
|Asparagus, bacon and poached egg salad|
|… and my glorious seafood platter|
It might possibly be time for me to stop feasting. I noticed yesterday that my summer shorts all appear to have shrunk!
