Easter requires a bit of planning so today began with an early morning shop. The first stop we made was at the cheese stall. Old Amsterdam, creamy, fresh, goat cheese and properly strong Stilton were among the varieties that went in the pile to become a cheese board. Pears and nuts were purchased and our next stop was the butcher shop for lamb. Our final stop was for bread. Easter dessert was discussed and ingredients purchased. Wine from California had been packed and brought from Pennsylvania. Once shopping chores were done, strong coffee was arranged and poured before a stately home was visited. Cross buns and cheese were assembled into lovely treats and some sloshing was involved. A good time was had all around and a fun time was had by all.
