More Easter Festivities

Easter dinner--lamb with mint sauce, roasted potatoes, Yorkshire puddings, roasted parsnips and mixed veg with gravy. I also made an amazing three-layer coconut cake (Paula Deen's recipe). It took us the whole rest of the week to finish it! :) We drank the bottle of Normandy cidre that we'd picked up in Calais last Easter, too.

Bisky in a mellow mood

On Monday we went to The Tetley, the art gallery in the old Tetley brewery. Most of the exhibitions were a bit abstract (we're not into modern art, admittedly), but it was a great way to see the old brewery. This was the Board room. I love the panelling and the red leather furniture! The contrast between this room and a grimy, windowless factory floor is pretty shocking, too...

On Tuesday we went to Harrogate to see a Yorkshire art exhibition at Mercer Art Gallery and to tour the Pump Room Museum. We had a lovely pub lunch at the Old Bell, too--the service was so-so, but the food was excellent! Richard had Oyster Stout for his first post-Lent pint, too.

This section of the pub used to be the Farrah's of Harrogate toffee shop
