In a random but nice treat, my grandparents came up to Barnet to have dinner with us. In an ambitious but probably misguided attempt to cook British, we made roast beef, yorkshire pudding, potatoes, and roasted fennel. An oven mishap nixed the Yorkshire pudding, and a tube mishap meant that Laura and her mother were only able to come for the apple pie at the end, but it was very pleasant. The roasted fennel was odd, but good to try.

My grandparents (my father's parents, who live in North Carolina) are in the middle of a ten-day trip around England, which centered around going to the bicentennial celebration of the Battle of Trafalgar, at Portsmouth. We're going to meet them on Sunday to see the changing of the guard at Buckingham palace, and then to Westminster Abbey.
