Roast beef

roast beef Nov 15

We rarely have beef. It takes up a great deal of resources to produce it so large scale consumption is unsustainable. Eating beef for us is therefore something for special occasions. Yesterday was our 30th anniversary so we decided that was worth celebrating. We had some beef we got in a local farm in a swap. It was also an excuse to try out the recently made horseradish sauce.

So dinner yesterday was roast beef, Yorkshire puddings made from our own eggs, our own vegetables and, of course, the horseradish sauce made from our own horseradish and cream.

Congratulations. 30 years together sounds like a good reason for roast beef and all the trimmings.

Happy Anniversary. That's a great idea, think we will do the same for our 36th. Rarely eat beef as well, it just too expensive now.
