The Queens Diamond Jubilee and Lily Florence.

Bank holiday weekend with an extra day, never happens in England except for the Queens 60th year on the throne, Prince Charles will still have a long wait to be king, the Queen Mother lived to 103. I do not think he really wants to be King, he does live a good life at the minute. Does a great deal of good work as well as running his numerous estates and we must not forget the Duchy range of organic foods he sells nationally. I had some Duchy Cheddar a little while ago and it was good, pricy but full of flavour.
Anyway back to the extra bank holiday on Tuesday, we intend having a Jubilee BBQ with some friends and family. In true English tradition we will burn the pork sausages and under cook the chicken, well after all the celebration wine no one will notice. Talking of under cooking, I did a whole pork fillet very quickly after marinating it by splashing on olive oil, loads of garlic granules and then seasoned with some salt and fresh ground pepper. Leave it for at least an two hours so it is at room temperature once you throw it on the grill. This makes a good alternative to chicken breasts, try it.
Russell has bought a Game Reserve, yes finally, lions, hippos, elephants and buck for the lions to eat. Comes complete with a game lodge and game drives. Who will be the first to visit and give me some feedback.
Finally let us all wish Lily Florence - artist for Middle earth and Princess to her Mum and Dad, a very happy birthday. I did a Jibjab video for her and hopefully that has put a smile on her face. She does look stunning while dancing. See Video here
