Awwwwwfully quiet round ere today innit?
We have been to a bbq and produce show this afternoon; didnt see any of
Jills flapjack or Berts onions amongst the exhibits, we entered some
beetroot, cherry tomatoes and some courgettes - none of which were picked
up by Lynda Snell or Tom, nor even Kneel. We did enjoy ourselves, we took
salad and a pasta dish plus hot dog rolls plus sauces and cooked some
sausages over the barbie for anyone to enjoy - we did.
I haven't been 'out' for ages so went to day 1 of our local food and drink
festival. Dutifully avoided temptation from all the wonderful sweet things
on offer (apart from a tiny sample of some chocolate and Baileys
confection). Avoided the temptation of sampling (or buying) any of the
alcohol and other drinks (apart from a thimbleful of elderflower cordial).
Admired the bicycle-powered blender at the smoothie stall. Chatted with the
guy who rides a bicycle skip around the place collecting rubbish. Chatted
with the paddle club blokes (canoes, kayaks and paddle boards - no
pedal-powered varieties) and one or two other folk I knew.
Picked up various leaflets from other community projects then realised I
hadn't had any lunch. Nothing I'd seen on the producer's stalls had made my
mouth water so I opted for shredded pork and chips. Huge portion, couldn't
finish it so that's in the fridge for... well I was going to eat it this
evening but I'm not hungry yet so maybe tomorrow.
