Poor Alex, he had to be dragged out shopping with his mother again today. He was off sick this week from school (now recovered) and today was the last day we had for getting the remainder of the things he needs for his school trip next week.
My migraine was headed off at the pass yesterday evening (thanks Annabel!) but both my eyes look, well, hideous! When Alex got up, the first thing he said was 'what's wrong with your eyes, you look scary!' Flattery got him nowhere, we still had to go out! I took my camera out with me to retake the photos I lost a couple of weeks ago.
One of them was of the lovely array of mushrooms sold in the market stalls on the main shopping street. The light grey mushrooms in this shot look much nicer in the flesh, they have a blue tinge. Right at the very back are some black mushrooms. I'd love to know how all of these are best used.
I thought these looked great against the stripey background. I don't think the stallholder was too pleased about me taking photos and not buying so I did eventually buy one of these large mushrooms - at great expense! If anyone know how best to use these, I'd be very interested! They are very big, enough to fill the palm of a hand.
In Norway, a neighbour of ours used to make a wonderful, rich reindeer casserole with chanterelles.
I wish they would put the names on these mushrooms!
It's that time of year already?
I tend not to buy pumpkins, I find the flavour a bit sickly - fine in small doses though.
I'm not really sure what some of these are but I'd bet Sainsbury's staff would throw out shapes like these!
A quick snap of a stand that seems to be there every day selling Italian goods.
