Tourist Tuesday: BBC Good Food Festival

This weekend was a lovely long weekend filled with food! Ryan had a half day on Friday and he came home and we made lunch together. I was in the mood for a delicious sandwich so we went to the grocery store to get ingredients for steak sandwiches. Ryan was the executive chef and I was the sous chef. He made all the decisions and did most of the cooking. I did the prep and washed the dishes. Our steak was topped with cheddar cheese, onions, and mushrooms on a baguette and served along side fries.

DSCN1020I had the best weekend. Such a good weekend, that I was too overwhelmed to write yesterday, and so you’ll have to hear about my weekend on a Tuesday.

On Saturday, Ryan planned for us to go to Hampton Court Palace. This was Henry VIII’s home. What you might not know about me is that I’m crazy about Tudor history.

It was amazing. ┬áHe won some major husband points. Anyway, let me nerd out a ton so I can tell you about my greatest day. Continue reading
