A Very British Diamond Jubilee Street Party

Today we celebrated the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee with a quintessential British street party: lovely neighbours, a mountain of finger food, Pimm’s galore. Followed by rain, a freezing cold wind, and more rain. Towards the end, I was wearing a fleece!

I severely overestimated people’s appetite, as did everyone else, so we are back home with nearly as much food as I left with this morning.

My contribution to the feast was British with a hint of French style-wise, consisting of goats’ cheese and tarragon scones with a cream cheese and chives dip, homemade Frankfurter sausage rolls, salade niçoise a.k.a tuna salad, a couple of cheeses, a couple of patés, four French sticks and a flan pâtissier a.k.a custard flan.

Food glorious food

And finally, keeping the best for last, knitted by a very talented neighbour…

      very accurate too. Remove the hats, and William has a little bald patch at the back of his head… :-p

  1. What fun! Looks like you had a great time and can eat on the leftovers for weeks. 🙂

    The knitted family is fantastic. She should send a picture of them to the BBC.

    We are having a belated Jubilee celebration on Sunday. Fairy cakes and Pimms in the sun, I hope. 🙂
