Guesting at somerville kitchen - Day 2

Click Guesting at somerville kitchen - Day 1 for the first part of this adventure.

Day 2 began with craving for proteins and Lucy's Eastside Diner was the lucky first stop of the day.

Lucy impressed all - while I enjoyed my Down South Breaky, others described the hashbrowns as the best ever and the hollandaise sauce as tasting like real hollandaise.

When the itinerary begins on Main Street, it is difficult to leave Main Street.

Strolling and shopping brought us back to Shaktea. While only an hour after our breakfast, the smell of freshly baked scones were simply hard to resist.

Three of us, three scones made it a mini snack, thoroughly enjoyed with Devonshire cream and Shaktea's French Earl Grey fruit preserve.

Once we made sure we sustained the many retailers of Main Street, guests were back in le jardin for a glass of Rosé and some snacks.

And what's a better treat than incorporating some jardin crop in the dinner menu.

Way too many tomatoes that are still green like grass. Why not fried green tomatoes with dinner?

Butter heated up close to burning so tomatoes fry, not stew, tomatoes thrown in and voila.

Dinner was a somerville kitchen favourite - braised lamb shanks with (jardin) chard.
...and all the Sunday dinner surroundings - mashed potatoes, pop overs, salad and of course the fried green tomatoes.

Dessert was vanilla ice cream with home made blackberry syrup (tune back this week for the story on that), along with freshly fried beignets and jardin blackberries.

Come back soon guests.
