A Return to the English Countryside

ImageWill I actually make this trip? Sadly, no. I will have to settle for watching the return of Downton Abbey tonight on PBS. This broadcasting gem has been gearing up for a new season. I came late to this series; the last few episodes of season one. I was able to catch up on what I missed on Amazon. Seasons two and three did not disappoint. So this new season will be full of the fallout from what happened last year.

I can remember back to another PBS series Upstairs/Downstairs that was as popular as Downton Abbey. What goes around comes around. It is really just a fancy soap opera. The stars of Downton have been flooding the U.S. talk shows promoting the new shows. How different they look in modern hair, clothes, and makeup! They say there will be one more season after this one. Oh my! What will we do?

How about a British feast in celebration of tonight’s premier? This baking website has a whole roster of yummy things to make for the party. (LINK)
