We started on Friday with a meeting to discuss who would prepare and cook the meals we'd previously decided upon. I used the newly-built stile at the top of my garden to get into the yard above, which is next door to Sue's house. BTW, I have posted a close-up of the stile to show how sturdy the structure is. Thanks to all who expressed concern. I am very careful when I climb over it but it is a really strong ladder with handholds all the way up and over.
A close-up of my stile showing how strong and safe it is!
After the menu was discussed and tasks allocated, Sue handed out ingredients that she'd bought in Nairobi.(Chef Wheatcliffe and assistant Chef Caro look on)
One of the pasta dishes on the lunch menu, needs pesto. I have herbs planted in between my flowers and shrubs and made a bowl of pesto from the fresh basil.
We went birding on Sunday morning. I hope to share a few of our sightings later this week. When we drove home, we spotted a goat on sleeping on a rock. She is very fat, so I expect she's expecting!
No, there's nothing wrong with the animal in the photo. We saw it's ear twitching while I took the photos!
This morning I'll be up before the post is aired. I need to get a few dishes prepared before the day starts. At about 9am I'll walk up to the Guest House and help prepare salads and dishes there as well. I will be back tomorrow with a full report on the day!
