In our family it’s all about the food. People are shocked when they eat with us because we tend to plan lunch as we’re eating breakfast and dinner as we’re eating lunch. We stated planning the menu for our three night stay in Perthshire months before going there last February. Long lists were cut down to short lists until we finally decided what we were having and who was cooking what.
One of our priorities when looking for self catering accommodation was the kitchen. We wanted something nicer than home and it had to have a dining table big enough for us all to sit around. Straloch House, a stunning self catering house in Perthshire, did not disappoint. The large kitchen was very well equipped, it even included a drinks chiller under the island unit. The everhot stove took a little bit of working out but once we realised we weren’t supposed to turn it off it worked like a dream!
This Wanderfood Wednesday I would like to share some photos of the delicious food we ate on this perfect family weekend. The photos were taken by my talented husband and more can be seen on his website.
Gorgeous grilled asparagus.
This steak was bought from our local butcher in Edinburgh. It was tender and very tasty as always.
The finished meal on our first night was steak with rocket, parmesan and asparagus.
On our second night we had Thai Green Curry.
I love this photo of my mum blowing our her birthday candles.
