Mincemeat and Skylark

Went over the border to hear my friend Clare play the flute in the band Skylark at the weekend. She is helping me with my NLP modelling project and it was great to hear her perform with her band. Skylark perform their own arrangements of traditional music from America, Sweden and the British Isles. Clare puts some amazing improvised melodies into the songs giving them an extra dimension. You can hear the Skylarks on YouTube https://www.youtube.com/user/SkylarkHarmony and  they are wonderful to hear live.

So post gig back at her house we needed some sustenance so we ate some of my newest recipe  – Mincemeat Slices.  Had a jar of yummy homemade mincemeat (thanks Emma!) so it was time to put it to good use.
