Firstly, thanks to Pattypan2 at  for the kind thoughts, I’m thinking about my response. But it's nice to know that my ramblings are read and enjoyed, my daughter just says that they make her laugh.

I’m clearing out the freezer, ready to store my berries as I pick them, and found some stock veg that I had saved (Swede, Parsnip, Celery and Onion), I use them in soups and gravies, and since we had eaten all the spiced nuts that I made on Sunday, (apart from the ones that Yvonne took over to Norma, and she started eating them on the Doorstep!) a healthier days food was required.
Anyhow, I boiled the veg up for about 40 minutes and then liquidised them,

  meanwhile frying some chopped Chorizo in its own oil.

I mixed the two together with some Tomato puree and seasoning,

 we can have that for lunch with the Baguettes that are currently cooling.

As you can see at the back, I also made breadsticks, which will be nice with a little Garlic Mayo, or maybe salsa.

For our evening meal, we are having a prawn salad with some of our new potatoes, baked in a little oil. Unfortunately our crop of salad leaves has fallen victim to rain and slugs, as has the next sowing, so I had to BUY lettuce at Riverford Farm Shop yesterday, along with other good things. The veg and salads they produce can be recognised by the taste unlike a lot of supermarket offerings, so what if it’s a bit more expensive. And it’s a small price to pay to enjoy your food. And if you can’t enjoy your food, what’s the point?

  1. I got my Riverside veg box today and noticed (because they weren't sprayed with horrible chemicals) that my apricots had tiny spots on them.
    I just can't stop humming "Big yellow taxi" and eating my apricots LOL
