Sunday Sevens 25th February.

Welcome to another Sunday Sevens. Managed to actually write two this month. πŸ™‚

I noticed this book on the Instagram page of a lovely gift shop I know in Clitheroe ‘ The Keep’ just off Moor Lane…and I was intrigued. I love movies and I love food! So when Wil very kindly bought it me as a belated Valentine’s present ( Thanks Wil! ) I was delighted. We immediately decided to try out a recipe…and chose The Hawaiian Burger based on The Big Kahuna Burger eaten by Samuel L Jackson’s God fearing Hitman in Pulp Fiction. It was great! We also rewatched the movie. I had forgotten what a cool soundtrack Pulp Fiction has! I am sure I will blog about Eat What You Watch , A cookbook For Movie Lovers once I have attempted the creme bruliee from Amelie and/or Uncle Buck’s Giant Pancakes. πŸ˜‰

Meanwhile this was Hugo when he spied the finished results. Oh Hugo……

Another book I happened upon recently at a second hand book sale is this beautiful book of bird illustrations from The British Museum, matched accompanying poems. It was only £3 and I love it. 😁

On Friday evening myself and friends Fi and Jo went on a spooky ghost walk round Hoghton Tower near Preston. Fi saw it advertised on Facebook and immediately decided we should go. Reputedly the 3rd most haunted house in Britain, Hoghton Tower seems to have a ghost residing in every room. As we were lead by torch light from wing to wing and down through underground passageways, we kept a nervous eye out for Ladies in white, Ladies in green, monks, little french girls, mischievous spirits and black dogs, amongst others. I wouldn’t have minded seeing the black dog. πŸ˜ŠπŸ•

Wil and I took our black dog on another walk to a country pub yesterday. My #walk1000miles challenge is going well. So far walked 220 miles in 8 weeks. πŸ€—

These two flew to the pub on their Broomsticks. πŸ˜‰

Thanks to Natalie as usual for organizing Sunday Sevens.

  1. Love the photo of Hugo drooling over the burgers πŸ™‚

    I’ve been to Houghton Tower a couple of times but never actually been inside. I’m a firm disbeliever in ghosts so even if I went in there it would take a lot to convince me otherwise.

    Love the witches in the pub but I think they are a bit late for Halloween πŸ™‚

    1. I don’t really believe in ghosts either. I grew up in a very old ( supposedly haunted) house and my sister was always seeing ghosts. I was completely oblivious though!
      The witches are Pendle Witches. The Calf’s Head pub is not far from Pendle Hill. Think they like to go there for a pint. 😁

  2. Burger looks excellent – but way too Nouvelle Cuisine for me! Oink! Special Agent Dale Cooper’s “Damn fine cherry pie” is a must for your fab idea of a Cook Book for Movie Lovers. (Twin Peaks/David Lynch).

  3. Those witches were busy cackling away. πŸ˜‰
    The cook book is good fun and the author has a cooking programme on youtube called Binging with Babish. X

  4. Great post! Loved seeing Hugo drooling for your leftovers lol. The bird book looks a bargain and your ghost hunt sounded fun. I like going on ghost walks. You are doing great with your #walk1000mile challenge πŸ™‚ xx

      1. I’m doing better than I was this time last year. Walks with Riley and to work have helped, though at times I have just wanted to hibernate lol. I’m on 278 miles. The challenges on Samsung Health help a lot too. x

  5. Great to hear your walking is still ongoing & with a large dog that needs walking, I think makes it easier. He’s gorgeous & love top photo!!! I’m never sure about ghosts, but wouldn’t say too much as there are some who do & others don’t. Must have been fun though. Take care.

    1. Yes having a dog certainly helps with the #walk1000miles challenge. I’m enjoying finding some different places to walk too. πŸ™‚
      The ghost tour was fun. I am not a big believer but there was fun history too…like the story of James

  6. Well done on the walking. I take it you didn’t actually see any ghosts or you’d have mentioned them? Eat what you watch is a great idea πŸ™‚ We somewhere have, if my youngest hasn’t reclaimed it, a Roald Dahl cookery book with recipes from his children’s books in it. There were some excellent ones in there.

  7. Hi I bet that cook book is a good read! Roald Dahl had such an amazing imagination. πŸ™‚
    No ghosts appeared to me …but my friend J was convinced one was in the wash room with her. πŸ˜‰

    1. Thanks for popping by Kate. My aim is to watch another film featured in the book and try and cook the recipe. I may try the chicken mole featured in Breakfast at Tiffanys. X
