Kitchen Envy

A snowy January day greeted us as we boarded a train to Haselmere to join Consuelo for lunch in her big, beautiful, country kitchen. We knocked the snow off our boots, gave the dogs a pat, and snuggled in to her AGA heated kitchen for a long afternoon of stimulating conversation .... everything from surprise weddings to gun control ....  and a delicious, seemingly effortless, meal.

I have blogged about Consuelo's Cottage before but since then she has added on this magnificent kitchen.  It all centers around the AGA, which we are standing in front of, and the view
out these huge glass doors and windows........ 
So peaceful to be watching the snow fall! 



As darkness began to fall we had to make the usual mad dash to the train station.
It's not that we don't love living in a fabulous city like London but we all promised ourselves not to forget how a day in the country can just lift our spirits and remind us of a little bit of home!  
Thanks again, my friend!

Now that looks like just the perfect day!
I know that Consuelo's kitchen was as warm and toasty as it could be, and smelling like 'home'. I'm so glad you were able to spend the day with friends... I would have loved to join y'all!
