the grapes are back in town!
for a while now we've had USA grown grapes in the supermarkets and I've been waiting for the Australian grown grapes to appear.
Nothing wrong with them,I just don't think it's fair that my fruit should have to travel so very many miles just to get onto my table.
And I prefer to support my own country. Buy Australian whenever I can.
So I've been grapeless for many months now.
Late Wednesday I saw the sign by the grapes, 'Australian Grown' and did a little happy dance right there. Got a funny look from a customer and explained I'd been waiting for Aussie grown grapes, she smiled and walked on quite quickly, surely I didn't scare her?
and here are the salads I bought earlier that day, just so you can see the packets and know what to look for if you want to buy them yourselves.
carrot, red cabbage, green stuff.

the leafy blend, a nice mix of colours in there, but no lettuce. I'll have to add a few baby cos leaves to each serving, maybe toss in some cherry tomatoes.
this is my Christmas Day dessert, Christmas cake, home made by my valued friend EC, drowned in custard, also home made, by me.
now for something special:
