Lettuce and strawberries

June 15, 2012

We were forecast rain today, but it didn’t happen. It was very windy though. I took a quick picture of the clouds as they sped across the sky revealing bits of blue. Everyone’s bored with the weather now, so it’s time for less rain and more sunshine. Today was a step in the right direction.

On with the mission to encourage the summer with food.

I picked a lettuce from the garden and took a photo of it bathed in sunshine. Ditto the strawberries which were really sweet and delicious (fairly local, but not from the garden – yet). We had a few cooked new potatoes left over so I made a potato salad adding the lettuce, some tomatoes, a dollop of mayonnaise, a few shredded mint leaves and some chives.

Arlo looked critically at the salad. “Is that grass in there?” he said. “Don’t be stupid” said Rella “Why would she put grass in a salad?” and then they both looked at me.

Where do these children come from?
