Swimming in the sea and homemade fishfingers for tea

A perfect day

Some days are just perfect and I love where I live today. Swansea is a funny old place, a former industrial port city that is situated in one of the most beautiful parts of the country. The Gower peninsular has about 30 miles of beaches and today we went to Pwll du. This beautiful bay has the added bonus of being a little tricky to get to which means its nearly always deserted and we all took to the water for a swim and afterwards we picked sloeberries for me to use tomorrow. Swimming and fresh air alway makes me hungry and I had already planned what we were having to eat today. Fishfingers and chips - homemade of course!

Homemade fishfingers with Tartare sauce

No need to write a recipe for this. All I did was cut a skinned coley fillet into finger sized strips and coat in flour, egg and breadcrumbs and shallow fry for about 5 minutes on each side until golden. I also made some tartare sauce and to do this you roughly chop some gherkins, capers, dill and parsley and mix it through with some mayonnaise. Serve with chips and peas if you like.

Homemade Lemonade

Seren wanted to make some lemonade which is perfect for a sunny Sunday. Again no recipe just a few pointers. Grate the zest and squeeze the juice of 6 lemons into a saucepan and add 150g of caster sugar. Bring to the boil to dissolve the sugar and strain into a jug. When cool add a little to a tall glass, add ice and soda water to serve.
