Soul food for wintery weekends – a bowl of homemade French onion soup and chunky slices of bread smeared thickly with butter.  We ate Miracle Bread from Jane’s Handmade Bread bought at Abbey Ley’s farmers market spread with white goat’s butter.

I thought it was about time I shared with you a fabulous new local food business who produce fantastic pies. 

I first met Neil from The Great North Pie Company at a farmer’s market at Abbey Ley’s last summer when I had a stall to advertise the local food awards I was running as a volunteer for CPRE Cheshire.  A relatively new business on the local Cheshire food scene, Neil and his family set up in 2008 baking delicious pies using quality local produce.

The Great North Pie Company were a runner-up in our CPRE Cheshire ‘Buy Local’ Food Awardsand were a winner of the far more prestigious NW Fine Foods awards.  On Sunday I bought a delicious beef and potato pie (with truffle oil!! a little non-local luxury we’re all allowed to indulge in!) for N and I to share for lunch.

We devoured the pie, with its melt-in-the-mouth beef that flakes apart into tender strands, along with hunks of Miracle Bread, also bought from the farmer’s market from Jane’s Handmade Bread, smeared with milky white goat’s butter.  A truly scrumptious local meal.

First try of her moccasins...what the picture conceals is the sobbing babe who it appears utterly hates the idea of anything going on her feet. (Is this a common reaction?). She's never really worn anything on her feet and I want her to continue as a barefoot babe as long as possible, but hoping she'll put up with the moccasins for days when it gets really chilly! Four o'clock tea time with a teapot of hot chocolate for two and a plate of homemade cookies. Green soup with raw cream and sweet potato and bacon biscuits for our lunch, Tilly wasn't so sure of it all but had good fun playing with it!
