A lot of shooting goes on around here.

First pheasant of the season last weekend. Grilled breast and confit of the legs.

Rather overcooked roast mallard on Saturday.

Our neighbour has promised us the next pike he catches.

(No, he doesn't shoot the pike.)

He could if he put it in a barrel, no?

I still can't get over how lovely the butchers, bakers and other shops are. I go around Norfolk on my days off exploring (in my little Fiat 500) and it seems every little village has wonderful butchers. We have at least 3 butchers (one within walking distance) that have sausages and bacon that are out this world and a huge range of game and they can tell you which farmer they come from.

Kind of OT: how do you like the Fiat 500? We've only ever owned Fiats (124 sedan and Spider convertible, in the mid-to-late 1970s), and if we need to get a car in the future (long story), I'd consider the 500. What's your experience with it?

And I bet they don't need to wear flannel shirts and bizarre facial hair to do so!

I simply love it. It's unbelievably cute for starters-- makes me chuckle just looking at it and I look forward to going anywhere in it. It's very comfortable, at least the two seats in front (two could get in back unlike the smart car, but it would be a squeeze); high seats in some ways, unlike my better half's Audi's low-lying things, but I prefer the Fiat seats for short journeys.

Wonderful for parking.

Nice cultural exchanges on the roads too: Other Fiat drivers will give you right of way. I have the silver one, but I do love the baby blue ones.

omg, it's so cute that it needs a kiddie modeling contract

“One thing kids like is to be tricked. For instance, I was going to take my little nephew to Disneyland, but instead I drove him to an old burned-out warehouse. 'Oh, no!', I said, 'Disneyland burned down.' He cried and cried, but I think that deep down he thought it was a pretty good joke. I started to drive over to the real Disneyland, but it was getting pretty late.”

I did hear that it's the only thing that Fiat makes money on these days.

ETA: Every car dealer that we asked about a "city-shopping-little--everyday car" said FIAT.

Dream to drive and so much fun. And right they were.

Partridge for dinner tonight -- roast with quince, and some mashed celeriac, and roast jerusalem artichoke.
Not sure about wine.
