Went out to check the creels this morning, first thing I saw was a Minke Whale and of course no camera. Typical, it was surfacing lots, even when the RIB from Gairloch went steaming past. They were looking West instead of East, better luck next time. Fishing was just on the off chance that a lobster was in the creels but the one I got was too small. It would have been nice to get a good sized one because we had our first Supper Club tonight.
I think we had some satisfied customers tonight, even with 7 kayakers at the door, very nice guys n girls too, although the midgies saw them off. First rain for a while and a good hatching of the wee blighters took its toll. Shortly after that 3 yacht visitors rocked up looking for showers and they too were glad to be away from the midge. That took an hour out of our schedule but we got there in the end.
The Menu was:
Cullen Skink with home made oatcakes
Langoustine, grilled with a beurre fondue, salad and soda bread
Rhubarb and Primrose Jelly
Fillet steak, barley and nettle pesto salad, rhubarb and ginger chutney, pickled beetroot
Meringue with strawberries and mint salsa
Coffee and biscotti biscuits
How’s that for a Wednesday night, exhausting I have to say!!
Guess it is time to do the washing up..
