At this time of year it's nice to be eating fresh vegetables that haven't been flown half way round the World, but not all vegetables are equally appealing. Big Nana has been staying with us this week and she is a big fan of Cabbages so we have had to include a couple of those in the Masterchef menu. Reminded me of School Dinners.
When I was doing the Car Boot Sale this morning, Richard from over the road stopped by at my stall and mentioned that he has a surfeit of cabbages at the moment and would we like any. (It all sounds very rustic and rural doesn't it?).
I told him that Big Nana was a Big Cabbage Patch Doll and would be returning back up North shortly, so later when I'd got home and unloaded the van Richard appeared at the front door clutching two enormous specimens.
"I've brought a couple of cabbages for your mother-in-law", he beamed.
"Seems like a fair deal to me!", I riposted.
