Holiday Day 4 / Lunch At The Lingholn Kitchen & Walled Garden (Keswick)

お天気予報では午後から雨になっていましたが、幸い大きく外れて今日も良いお天気になりました。お天気だけは何ヶ月も前から予測できないので(予報は出ますが当日の予報さえ当たらないことが多いので全くあてにはできません)仕方ないなと思っていましたが、お天気になって良かったです。せっかく景色が良いところをドライブしても雨だと残念。

The weather forecast said it was going to be cloudy in the morning and raining in the afternoon, but luckily they were totally wrong and we had another beautiful day! As you cannot predict weather months in advance (you can see the forecast but even the forecast on the day is often wrong so there really is no point) we just had to pick a period of time for our trip, hoping the weather will not be too bad. We are very happy that the weather has been so good as the beautiful views will not be as beautiful in the rain.

今日は、Keswick湖まで走って、Keswick近くにある「The Lingholn Kitchen & Walled Gardenでランチ。駐車場から少し坂道を歩いたところにありました。

夫はフレンチ・トースト、わたしはBLT。夫のフレンチ・トーストは分厚くて、ジャムたっぷりで、美味しいけれどかなりヘビーで少し残していました。わたしのBLTはバンズに挟んだタイプで、パンも中身もとっても美味しかったです!ふんわりしたフレッシュな美味しいパンに普通に美味しいベーコンとトマトとレタス、ニンニク風味のマヨネーズが挟んでありました。塩加減も丁度よく、添えられたサラダはそれほどフレッシュではなかったもののドレッシングが美味しく。そんなに特別ではないと思われそうですが、普通に美味しいサンドイッチがなかなか食べられないんです。こういう普通に美味しいシンプルなサンドイッチが、イギリス、英国でどこでも食べられるようになって欲しいものです。

We drove to Keswick and around Derwent Water, stopping for lunch at “The Lingholn Kitchen & Walled Garden”. You need to walk a slope for 5 minutes or so from the car park.

My husband had French Toast and I had BLT. The French Toast was tasty but the toasts were very thick and there was a lot of jam and peanut butter, it was quite heavy – even my husband couldn’t finish it. My BLT was very good. The bun was fresh and had the right texture, the filling was all fresh and the seasoning was good with the garlic flavoured mayonnaise. The salad wasn’t as fresh as I would have liked but the dressing was tasty, so I was happy. You would think that something so simple is available anywhere but they are not here. I would love it if something simple but good quality like this is available all over the UK.
