In her comment on a recent post of mine about the chickens of Oude Molen, my blogfriend Kathy got very hungry when I told her about the amazing quiches served at the Millstone Farm Stall.
So I promised her that I would post a picture… although this may make her even more hungry. … Um… Sorry, Kathy! You’ll just have to visit this place some day! In the meantime, I hope you will vicariously enjoy these with me.
Right, so here are some of our favourite meals at the Millstone Farm Stall. Actually, I would have even more such photos, but family and friends don’t entirely seem to appreciate my compulsion to take pictures of the food we eat. It’s most odd, really. I just can’t understand their protests, can you? I mean, just LOOK at these dishes. Don’t they make your mouth water and your tummy grrowl?
It is always good to start the day with a healthy breakfast of farm-fresh bread from the woodfired oven, with a portion of jam and cheese, accompanied by a pot of tea.
A mid-morning snack of warm scones with strawberry jam and cream, or if you prefer, a plate of flapjacks with maple syrup, and a large chococcino, would not go amiss!
For lunch you can build up your energy reserves to sustain you for the rest of the day with a spinach and feta cheese quiche, with a serving of salad from the farm to make it all even more nutritious. And you can treat yourself to a freshly squeezed apple juice – sweet and filling enough for a meal all on its own!
Or, if you don’t like spinach so much, I can recommend their butternut and feta quiche with a healthy side salad.
Or can we excite you with a portion of grilled vegetables, accompanied by a glass of sparkling apple juice or Appletiser?
If you don’t like your salads without dressing, you can drizzle some olive oil or balsamic vinegar over it.
And as a mid-afternoon reward for all the work you’ve completed earlier in the day, you can hungrily wolf down a piece of moist carrot cake, with a large chococcino on the side – guaranteed to fill you with all the voomah you need!
Or if you prefer, you can have a large piece of chocolate-and-beetroot cake, which tastes absolutely heavenly!
A capuccino will give you a caffeine-induced burst of energy to finish the rest of the work that still clutters your desk and to send off those few remaining emails that still demand a reply before the day’s work is done.
And, last but definitely not least, our favourite treat are these super-rich, calorie-bomb chocolate brownies! If you’re lucky, there may even be some left in the shop so that you can take them home with you for a post-dinner pudding. Ahhhh… pure decadence.
