It was beautiful weather in Yorkshire today, so a perfect day to get outside and enjoy the sunshine. We don’t get endless summer days in England so you have to make the most of it when the sun has got its hat on.One of my favourite places to go is The Balloon Tree Farm Shop and Cafe on Stamford Bridge road. It was actually my dad who introduced me to this place – I think he’s addicted to their Eggs Benedict and Pavlova. I think you would be too if you tried it though.
Myself and Oli set off pretty early at 10am, well early for a Sunday, as we wanted to catch their breakfast menu which goes on until 11.30am. There was a perfect table outside in the sunshine so we established ourselves there and browsed the menu. I had a craving for bacon, so ordered the eggy bread with a side of crispy bacon. Oli’s a vegetarian, but The Balloon Tree cater extremely well and do a vegetarian full English breakfast. Perfect.
We sat and sipped our coffee, soaking up the sun. Then the star of the shows arrived. I haven’t had eggy bread in years and having this has reminded me that I really need to start making it. So simple, yet so tasty. I was even eyeing up Oli’s veggie fry up which looked pretty impressive.
Strawberry picking is up there with one of my favourite summer things to do. Definitely takes me back to being a kid. We decided to just go for strawberries – but there are so many different types of fruits you can pick there! They even do pumpkins around Halloween time which I have already pre-planned to come and do.
Oli made friends with a goat, and he was very happy about it. They were pretty inseparable.
