I worked right up to Easter, well Maundy Thursday and finished late in the evening. I had planned the weekend cooking, Sunday lunch and the weather forecast predicted good and sunny weather, which meant BBQ! – I had plenty of appropriate food in the freezer and salad stuffs.
We went to Paignton yesterday afternoon, a seaside town set along the Torquay Riviera and I knew that the town was still home to a green grocer. We have the same small West Country chain green grocer in my town too, and whilst it is a small chain, all the food is grown in the South West. Very often the tickets will even tell you which market garden or farm the produce has come from.
As I stood and selected three whopper potatoes suitable for baking in the oven, I could smell the fragrance of tomatoes. Proper tomatoes, the smell that takes me back to my childhood and memories of green plants with little yellow flowers which eventually turn into fresh, home grown tomatoes. I had to buy some, even though I have sufficient in the fridge.
