Specials and a moment from history

Hello, our regular opening days of Tuesday to Saturday return this week. See below for our specials selection. Available for home and work delivery lunches and suppers.

Looking through historical events in history I happened across an event from 1935. On January 11th the American aviator Amelia Earhart became the first person to fly solo from Hawaii to California. She was an amazing pioneer of early aviation, being the first woman to fly the Atlantic (as a passenger in 1928) and the first Woman to fly solo and at the controls of the aircraft in 1932. In this country we probably know more of the British aviator Amy Johnson who was a contemporary of Earhart’s flying from UK to Australia in 1930. Both these amazing pioneers were unfortunate to lose their lives before the age of 40, each doing what they were best known for – flying aircraft. To read more about either of them you can see their wikipedia entries here Earhart and Johnson

Pea Green Cafe’s Supper Solutions Christmas Specials

Between now and Christmas we have a traditional roast turkey lunch/supper available for delivery please see below for details.
We also have a range of own cooked seasonal foods (Christmas cake, puds, mincemeat, pies etc) and ingredients to serve at home over the upcoming festivities, a menu of these is also below.
We are having a few days off over Christmas, but will be open between Christmas and New Year, a list of opening hours also below.

I know personally getting ready for Christmas and allowing for shops to be closed a few days takes a bit of planning. Spare a thought for the sheriff of Hampshire who had just 11 days notice for preperations, 800+ years ago King John decided to spend Christmas at Winchester and sent a shopping list.

Once the king had decided where he would spend Christmas Day, a command would be sent to the local sheriff ordering him to rustle-up the necessary supplies. There would be hundreds of mouths to feed, so this was no easy task – in fact King John’s shopping list puts our Christmas-shopping nightmares in the shade. In 1206, an order was dispatched to the sheriff of Hampshire on 13 December to find 1,500 hens, 5,000 eggs, 20 cattle, 100 pigs and 100 sheep for the king’s Christmas festivities at the royal palace of Winchester. Thankfully for the sheriff of Hampshire, the task of ordering the table settings was delegated to his colleague in Wiltshire, who had to procure 500 ells of linen for making tablecloths

Stir Up Sunday

A couple of wonderfully delicious and warming dishes for our specials this week. See menu below for details of our 2 course meals delivered to your home for lunch or supper only £9.95.

Yesterday was “Stir Up Sunday”. Not, as you might think from the name, a day to cause ructions and arguments; but a day to mix Christmas pudding. The expression comes from a Christian text i.e. the opening words of the collect for the day in the1549 book of common prayer. This comes on the last Sunday before advent which means Christmas itself is approaching fast!

” Stir up, we beseech thee, O Lord, the wills of thy faithful people; that they, plenteously bringing forth the fruit of good works, may of thee be plenteously rewarded”

1549 Book of Common Prayer

At the time of writing we don’t know what our permissions are for getting together with family and friends over this year’s festive season, but rest assured if you would like any mincemeat, cake, pudding, brandy sauce etc we will have this available to deliver to you at home. More details following next week.

Specials and a bit if history

See below for our special menu this week, delicious and totally unique to Pea Green customers. Available for lunch or supper delivery from Tuesday to Saturday.

Looking at events from history I noticed that this was the day in 1558 that Queen Elizabeth ascended to the throne of England after the death of her half sister Mary. She remained there for nearly 45 years until her death in March 1603 aged 69. Given that average life expectancy at this time was about 40 years it is little surprise that historians talk about the “Elizabethan age”

Sadly the cafe is still closed until early December, or until the government allows us to re open, but in the meantime we can bring delicious meals to your door ready to eat. Alternatively you can collect them from the cafe on Temeside, though you will need to order in advance. Also many of our meals can be purchased to be cooked at home all you need to do is heat and eat! If you order any combination of 5 main courses we give you 10% off. Phone to discuss your requirements

Equinox, Specials and Advance Notice

With the autumn equinox upon us this Tuesday it marks another turning point in the year. The weather has been so warm and sunny the last few days it would be easy to think we are still in high summer. The daylight hours dwindling and the changing colours of the leaves are a sure reminder however that it isn’t.
