Well thanks glorious weather! You have completely ruined my menu plan. The thought of making and eating shepherds pie on such a hot day exhausts me just thinking of it. I want crisp cool salads and warm juicy fruit but it’s March and summer sun missed fruits are nowhere to be found. (I don’t count “imported from the other side of the world” or British grown “never seen daylight just UV light” foods).
Fortunately there were plenty oddments of vegetables that were unessential to the rest of the weeks menu languishing in the fridge. The last of the lettuce, a handful of spinach, some old broccoli stems I had been saving, celery, a few spring onions and a homemade mayonnaise made a light and creamy salad. All that was missing was that mouth pleasing crunch of croutons.
