Lettuce consider

August 13th, 2009 at 08:20 pm

It's official, food prices are up 8% since last July, fruit and veg up 12 %. Oh the pain. TG I'm not feeding a family anymore, it must be so hard.

But I was surprised at the interview on the radio about it this morning. The reporter opted to quiz the spokesperson about the price of lettuce and tomatoes, complaing about how expensive they were. Doh! If you're hard up you don't buy lettuce, which has few calories. And you certainly don't buy them in winter - you buy the veges which are cheap then.

So here is a basic beating-the-winter-depression dish. Throw a generous spoonful of caraway seeds into oil. Add plenty of thinly sliced cabbage and carrot and cook until wilted. Add as much as you can afford of cooked black eyed beans and lots of tomato sauce. Pop the lid on and simmer until veges are cooked.

    Lettuce Feed You! Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha!

    We don't tend to eat lettuce in the winter for the very reasons you describe - it's expensive, not filling, and cold.
