On Sunday, with the re-discovered joy that fridge ownership had brought, we had a family outing to our nearest supermarket. Never have a small group of people been so happy at the thought of buying fresh orange juice, milk and cheese! We could also raid the vegetable graveyard, looking for perfectly fine and edible produce that failed the supermarket's ridiculous shelf-life policy.
There was plenty to choose from, but we limited our haul to a bag of mange tout the size of your head and two bunches of asparagus. Now I know that neither of these foods are in season and therefore, have probably been airfreighted in from Peru or Kenya, but a bargain is a bargain and I hate to see food go to waste.
Tonight I cooked a rather large omelette for our evening meal, which we ate with a salad that Z prepared. I wont bore you to death with how to make an omelette, James Martin does enough of that every week on Saturday Kitchen. I will say that lighter evening meals will become more of a prominent feature here, unless we snap back to wintry conditions again.
