Food shopping for Christmas all done on Queens Rd. Time taken. About 20 minutes. Stress level: Zero.
From Archers, a Copas (est 1957) free range Turkey, as recommended by Rick Stein. As it has enjoyed a very pleasant life strolling around a meadow and then being gentle put to sleep to the sound of Chopin, it should taste good. Leeks, carrots and other assorted veg from Peasgood’s, but no Cauliflower. There’s a shortage apparently. Also bought a red cabbage which is already in the slow cooker, finely chopped and mixed with a jar of Mango Chutney. Wine from Bargain Booze and various other bits and pieces from Sainsbury’s Local. Merry Christmas one and all!
