Bagged Bread, Bagged Veg

You know what they like to say about the weather in Britain? “If you don’t like it, wait five minutes.” Both fortunately and unfortunately, this statement rings true; fortunate in that a violent rain shower might blow over in a matter of minutes, and unfortunate in that when you wake up to a gorgeous, sunny sky, it might be gone by the time you’re dressed and ready to enjoy it. Such was the case this morning. It was sunny and clear when I got out of bed, but overcast and preposterously windy by the time I made it to the market an hour later.

Lazy Day Veg


Today was one of those rare Sundays that didn’t revolve around food. Instead of baking and recipe-planning this afternoon, I spent several hours lazing on the heath with Andrew. Reading my new Living etc with the sun on my face, I admit- cooking was the last thing on my mind. Good thing I got to the market before that, and did a bit of shopping for the week ahead. Read more…
