bike riding

Sarah and I went on an amazing bike ride today. We cycled to Tooting on an errand and then over to Richmond Park, the largest open space in London. They even have deer living there! What's good about it is that it is preserved woodlands and meadows rather than a planned common. It feels a lot more natural and relaxing.

We cycled around the inner loop road of the park, which gave us great views of the city over the trees. Our trip back home involved some weaving cycle paths and also a few really big roads. All in all we think we cycled 15 miles.

Upon returning and resting our tired legs and bottoms, we cooked this very colourful meal: herby griddled haloumi cheese on a beetroot and bulgar salad with deviled eggs. Yum, yum. Ant's meal made a person who needed a portrait taken.

When the travelogue became a cooking show, I was anticipating BBQ deer meat, but alas, it was not to be.

The food looks like a picutre from a cook book. Nice work. (thougj all those veggies sound terrible!) :)
You are becoming a true-biker. I wish I could go like that. The "inner-loop" would cover well.. the whole town.

Well, Dad, sorry! We are learning to eat vegetarian a bit. Ant even agreed that we could eat meatless once a fortnight. And, Sonya, I guess that means more lovely vegetables! Sarah was saying how vegetarian food usually tastes more exciting because there are no preconceived ideas about what the main flavour should be.
