And this week ... I bought

We were a miserable pair heading to Borough on Saturday, both of us with colds engendering snotty noses and hacking coughs, glum faces enough to make for a cheerless end to January. Had a vague plan to slow roast a shoulder of mutton but decided instead to make rendang with lots of chilli in the hope of healing ourselves. Ginger Pig now sell all cuts of mutton so bought some diced - and got sympathy from the young butcher for my ills. Also bought a chicken, a couple of pork chops and some pork steak - quite a meaty week really - Total came to £28.75

Then to Gianni at Gastronomica for a big hunk of Parmesan - £7
Nothing else from over that side - we really must have been unwell

Apple juice from Chegworth to cheer us - the man was seduced by the pretty pink of the one mixed with raspberry which struck me as odd, he doesn't like raspberry usually. Turns out he still doesn't which was good for me... - £1.50

Coffee from Monmouth - £8

Salami from the other Gastronomica, one that was studded with truffle and richly perfumed - £3

Booths for veg - cabbage, rocket, spring onions, clementines, bananas, garlic, celery, carrots, fennel - lots of cold hard things really - £8.50

Parsley from Tony because Booths had no flat leaf - £1

Smoked salmon from the Irish stall because it is so very good - £5

Milk and bread from Neals Yard - £8.40

Bread and an almond croissant from Flour Power - £3.20

Altogether it was £74.35 - and a lot of possibilities for dining in the week ahead
