The Kings Arms - Woodstock - Oxford
While Husband and his male relatives were consuming vast quantities of roast dinner on Sunday, I went for a lighter option and enjoyed it immensely. My main course was a peppered chicken breast, served with pear, fresh figs, a green salad and hazelnuts. The figs were incredible.. just warm and with a slight hint of an orange flavour. I asked the waitress how they'd been cooked and she explained that they'd been pan fried in an orange and honey butter.
This sounds simple enough - so I'm going to try them out on my family on Wednesday evening. There's going to be eight of us. It's a sort of 'pre-Christmas meal' before my sister goes to her 'in-laws' for the weekend. We'll do the whole festive thing with crackers and christmas napkins on the table. It's a bit of work to get things organised, but I'm enjoying having the time to think and plan properly. It's also the motivation I need to get on with a bit of housework. The kitchen has a slightly 'end of term/neglected' air at the moment!!!!!
