Seven of us went to Stratford Hall today. There was a lecture by Nancy Carter-Crump author of Hearthside cooking; a tour; a fabulous four-course dinner - mushroom soup with Sally Lund bread/stuffed pork loin with asparagus, apple sauce, spinach, squash/salad/a muffin cake with a spoonful of caramel ice cream; and ultimately a trip to the gift shop.
