Thankful ploughmen….

This week has been filled in the blogosphere with thanks, and it had me thinking.  What was I thankful for?  Well, I have a lot to be thankful for, but today especially, I have people to thank for who I am.  I worked at this amazing vineyard cafe at Muirlea Rise.  There I was the slave, I did dishes, cut foods, poured wine, and generally did whatever.  Lea and Will were amazing to work for, always positive and encouraging and they taught me a lot about life, love and food.

My favourite dish on the menu was the ploughman’s lunch, with hunks of great cheese, various breads, and branston pickle, with pickled onions and grapes.  It was amazing.  Today, the day of “Toast Martinborough” the food, wine and music festival, I honour them with my thanks, and a bento-snack variation of the ploughmans lunch.

Here we have 3 slices of baguette, with Edam cheese flowers and lashings of Branston pickle.  I only wish I had picked onions as well.  And a nice glass of red wine.
