蘋果肉桂蛋糕 Apple and Cinnamon Cake



英國今年的春夏季因為來得比往年早,於是感覺上逗留的時間很短暫,離去也怱促。

Spring and summer came earlier than usual in the UK this year. As a result it feels like they were here for less time and their departure feels quite abrupt.

可愛的威爾斯小鎮 Llangollen ~ The Lovely Little Welsh Town Llangollen



永遠溫暖美麗,三十年不變的北威爾斯小鎮 Llangollen。每次來訪,必來喝個下午茶的這間小茶屋。十年人事,招呼客人的年輕臉孔儘管不同,服務態度卻仍親切如昔。  

The little Welsh town Llangollen is always warm and beautiful. It has not changed at all since our first visit 30 years ago. When we come we always have our afternoon tea here at the Cottage Tea Rooms. Although we have been greeted by different faces each time, but the friendly and excellent service remains the same.

去脊骨展平葡式香辣烤雞 Spatchcock Piri - Piri Chicken


不知道在其他地方居住的人,會不會像我們在英國的一樣 ; 天氣一放晴,便馬上在家中的後花園舉行燒烤。

I’m not sure if it’s the same for other people who live in different countries, but here in the UK, whenever the sun comes out, we immediately go to our back garden and get out the barbeque.

串燒沙嗲雞與香辣花生醬和甜酸蘸汁 Skewered Satay Chicken with Spicy Peanut and Sweet and Sour Dipping Sauce


記得小時候,每逢電視上有大型綜合性節目表演那天晚上,如台慶、慈善籌款活動、歌唱比賽等等;因為飯後媽媽都比較累,我們便會趁機向爸爸要錢,到街頭街尾的檔攤小店買備零食飲料,然後到節目開始時,一家人興高彩烈的圍坐電視機旁,開開心心的欣賞演出。

I remember as a child whenever there was a large variety show on the television, such as the celebration of the TV Channel's anniversary, or charities' fundraising activities, singing contests and so on, we used to take advantage of the situation. Our mum usually felt quite tired after our evening meal, so we'd beg our dad for money, and  buy snacks and drinks from the corner shop or the street stalls. Then we all sat around and happily munched away on those special treats whilst enjoying the performances.
