Hot Cross Buns for Breakfast

April 6, 2012

This morning, being Good Friday, I thought we ought to have Hot Cross Buns for breakfast because that’s what you do. I should have made them myself, but someone on the radio was telling me that the cross on a hot cross bun shows the length and breadth of God’s love for us. Daunting. I wasn’t sure I was up to the task. However, the local co-op had buy two packs for £1.50. Bargain. Breakfast sorted.

Apparently a hot cross bun served on Good Friday will last the whole year without spoiling – though I can see a flaw in this reasoning.

After breakfast the beloved and I went to the Garden House in Buckland Monochorum. Stunning magnolias and camellias, delicate erithronums (the national collection is housed here I think), nice tea and cake (with walnuts in, though the beloved had a bakewell tart) and some interesting features in the garden not all of which were twee.

After that we went for a walk on the moor and saw a nameless Tor and some horses before having a really lacklustre sandwich in Princetown and then wending our way home through lots of impossibly pretty villages with meandering streams.

The beloved cooked dinner. Fish as it’s Good Friday – sea bass fillets with stir fried vegetables and noodles. Delicious. I think he needs to cook more often.
