Minnowburn Party

Having had a great dinner and evening with J on Friday evening (Salmon en croute, baby potatoes, medley of vegetables; strawberry and Champagne soufflé; red and white wines), this morning we motored over to Minnowburn for the annual Christmas party held in the Warden's office.

We had to earn our mulled wine first, though, by digging up the earth in the poly-tunnel!

It was a jolly festive occasion and Polish dumplings, cocktail sausages, sausage rolls, potato and leek soup, mini quiches, curry and mince pies were all on the table.

Next Tuesday the National Trust's Mount Stewart Christmas Dinner will be held at the Old Inn in Crawfordsburn, County Down.
