It is Thursday so it’s market day!
I like getting ready to go out to the market, my wheelie basket at my side. Here in Cataluny you don’t have to be an old lady to use a shopping trolley. They are practical and almost everyone has one. I was laughed at in the UK when I walked with my old wickerwork trolley and of course it isn’t so useful when you are in a car. But here where the market is just five minutes down the road, it means you can buy all the fresh fruit and vegetables that you want and also have a handy weapon to help you get through the crowds
Look down the hallway and perhaps you can just make out the freshly painted walls of our sitting room. We painted it white last week. I have been wanting to do that for four years!
And in the kitchen there are three fresh baked loaves
After Bonnie died I got a huge urge to start baking bread. I lost the ability quite a long time ago and after producing several hard inedible bricks I gave up. But something has changed and so far they have all been delicious. It’s good to know exactly what is in your daily bread
I use Delia Smiths recipe for quick easy wholemeal bread.
The two little ones are half wheat and half rye.
The one on the left is half Kamut – an experiment
So, off to the market. I will try to take photos but I am nervous ever since one of the gypsy stall holders ran after me shouting not to take pictures. I need to get over this.
