Cosy and comforting, cheese on toast is always welcome. We made this over the bank holiday weekend in Aldeburgh, to enjoy on our laps as we watched Magic Mike (nothing like the Full Monty… and actually a really crap film, but this isn’t a film review blog so will stop there.)

While I was at home in Sussex for the weekend, my flat mate and her boyfriend cooked the most stunning piece of beef for supper on Saturday, courtesy of Farmdrop. What is Farmdrop I hear you say… well Emma’s boyfriend works for the company and it is an exciting new startup which takes out the middle man and allows the consumer to buy directly from the supplier. Got to be a good thing right?
