I've always liked the description of the picnic that Ratty put up for Mole;
I bought a sort of picnic for this evening, of the things I fancied eating and things my father might like, and Himself added some crackers and some boursin and some fine cheddar...
and we took it round to my father's flat for supper.
slices of salmon terrine, chicken satay and peanut sauce, sliced cold topside of beef, quail's eggs and celery salt, red bell peppers stuffed with cream cheese, mini pork pies, radishes, cherry tomatoes, watermelon pieces, orange melon pieces, mango slices and of course, the cheeses and the crackers.
I also bought a little mini port selection box, so that my father and I could have a small glass of port each to finish;
(Himself doesn't really care for port, and was driving).
Excellent end to the day!
