Well, it should have been, but sadly, I was disappointed…
We have a local Farmers Market, and even though I wasn’t feeling too well, i was determined to go. I haven’t been for months, the reason being is that it was never that impressive. A dozen stalls if that. But, I’ve seen a lot more advertising recently, so went along today imagining this fairly large market, verging on Borough or Portobello Road. Yeah right! Ha ha ha…it was as I expected, half a dozen stalls and as many buyers as there were stall holders. Ok, perhaps I exaggerated there a little bit, but put it this way, I didn’t have to queue for anything.
We bought some cheeses, some bread and a salami looking sausage thing from a French guy that said it was pork and pepper. On our way there we had this fantastical idea that we would be able to get everything for dinner from the Farmers Market *sighs* and then drove straight to Waitrose afterwards lol
So dinner this evening was one of the kids favourites. We call it the “Meats & Cheeses” meal lol and it normally consists of exactly that. Parma Ham, Serrano Ham, Salami, Chorizo, different Cheddars, Brie, Dolcelatte with dips, breads, and various cold vegetables/salad items. Today we even managed to get hold of some of the baby onions that are pickled in Balsamic.
