It occurs to me so much, particularly if I have the self-restraint to attend till a present is accomplished so I can binge-watch. There’s one thing so satisfying about clicking the subsequent episode over and over till you’ve reached the conclusion.
Downton Abbey is one thing that I’ve been holding out on as a result of its near success in its sixth and ultimate season. I so desperately needed to attend, however, I gave in to temptation and now I’m cursing myself as a result of I completely have to see season six instantly. I really like so many issues about Downton, however, what I discover notably fascinating – except for the hair, garments, and intrigue – is the meals. I’ve all the time had a tender spot for English meals.
Issues like Cornish pasties, fish and chips, shepherd’s pie, bangers and mash, and Yorkshire puddings are a few of my favorite consolation meals. To not point out the gloriousness that may be a complete heat scone with clotted cream, jam, and an ideal cup of tea. It’s sufficient to make me swoon. So, think about simply how over the moon I’m to have an opportunity to be going to London to see a few Downton Abbey places. I’m so (so so) excited to be going to Highclere Citadel (the actual Downton) to have tea! I really feel so fancy.
Beef wellington, however mini
They’re a golden burnished brown on the surface, however on the within, they’re a superbly medium-rare pink. The tender, juicy beef is a pleasant foil to the flakiness of the pastry. There are additionally secretly added layers of deliciousness. Assume thinly sliced parma ham, thyme butter roasted mushrooms and a beneficiant quantity of dijon for a little bit of a kick. I served these with a little bit of garlicky mashed potatoes, however, they’re excellent on their very own as properly.
These appear a bit finicky, however, the reality is, they’re more time-consuming and greater than finicky. Take a few hours, chill out and provides these little guys a go. Perhaps even for the Downton premiere of season six?
