One last Sunday roast

December 14, 2011

. . . . . . . . . .

On my last Sunday in London, good friends Charlotte & Matt invited me over for a Sunday roast at their flat.

It started with a very good bottle of Champagne that I had been saving for who knows when (I couldn’t take it back to the US with me). (Note to self: drink more afternoon Champagne in 2012).

Then we ate potatoes roasted in goose fat, delicious roast beef with lots of dijon mustard, and tarte tatin for dessert.

It was a great way to spend my last Sunday. Thanks, C & M. You’re the best.

    I do love me some goose-fat roasted potatoes! I think I may follow your lead on the New Year’s Resolution front- Champagne all around!

    Sounds like a lovely and appropriate way to spend your last moments there!

    Lovely, moody pics! Here’s to more champagne…and I am definitely living in the wrong country…must find a Pacific-side source for pure bottled goose fat!

    That menu is PERFECT for this time of year! And it reminds me, it’s been much too long since I made a tarte tatin. Lovely photographs.
