After a huge week and a big sleep-in, I decided it was time for a soul (and fridge) restoring trek to the market. Strengthened in body by the calamari and in spirit by the amazing sights and smells, I dodged showers and now I’m home with berries, baguettes, rhubarb and strawberry jam, baby carrots & hummus, and hot smoked salmon and mackerel. Should keep me going for a day or two. Just wish I could think of something my tiny kitchen could manage to use some of the amazing mushrooms (even if Cuz thinks they’re imported!) Garlic, clams, cauliflower, potatoes (amazing, varied and picturesque just not pictured) and mushrooms…. add some cream and it’s starting to sound like a soup.
The things that look like green cherry tomatoes are incredibly sour (I forget their names) as are the cute fruit inside the Chinese lanterns. Not so palatable straight up, but dead gorgeous to look at. Oh and yes, those boxes of strawberries, the sweetest strawberries you’ve ever tasted, they’re $10 each.
In case you’re wondering I got myself a punnet of the mixed berries – strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, grapes, cherries and blackberries.
