a good day for food

June 17, 2012

The Totnes Good food market was on today and I had intended to mooch around it for a while – as it wasn’t  raining  – after I had delivered my paintings to Birdwood House where the Totnes Art Society’s annual exhibition is being held (it’s on until June 30th). It didn’t work out that way because the exhibition was short of people to hang the paintings and I arrived at an opportune moment. I could smell the good food market though.

I would have stopped to grab something to eat at the market, but we had an invitation to attend Roger and Nicole’s summer afternoon gathering.   Arlo said “You can tell they’re artists. There’s interesting bits all over the place and even the garden looks like a painting”. 

Fortunately Roger and Nicole had prepared food. There would have been a photo of the delicious spread, but I didn’t think about it in time. Here’s Arlo’s contribution to the washing up (he did eat the bread stick after I took the photo).

You’ll have to imagine plates of beautifully-cut-into-triangles sorrel and egg sandwiches and humous and coriander sandwiches, nestling amid plates of olives, strawberries and hunza apricots and cheese and apple cake (very nice) and elegant stemmed dishes of gooseberry fool (only one of which the beloved and I shared) as well as Pimms – or fruit cup (or even cups of tea for those in need of stronger fortification).

We had a walk to the newly acquired field and briefly discussed possibilities and the Umber mine (which I really need to find out more about) and after that the beloved, Arlo and I dashed off to the private view –  and crisps and peanuts – and then home for egg and chips and some Beast of Dartmoor chilli sauce and some Beenleigh Blue cheese Rella bought the beloved (it’s father’s day).

The beloved declared it a good food day.

(Happy Birthday Roger)
