I forgot to tell you that I was in London (yes, again) on Friday, to spend the day with Terri. Terri loves her food as much as I do so this time we met up at the Borough Market. I'm faintly surprised that I didn't chain myself to one of the food vendors and refuse to leave.
We started with hot chocolates - chili for her and hazelnut for me - and chocolate coated popcorn (way better than it sounds and it had popping candy in it) to reinforce energy levels before diving into the market. We may have sat for an extra an hour just talking a mile a minute and Terri charmed the waiter - a Portuguese Australian - to the point they were exchanging recipes!
Once in the market the question of what to eat was mind boggling, mostly because we would have liked some of everything. We wandered and nibbled samples so much though that we ended up sharing some chili squid and gyoza dumplings and were full.
That didn't stop us from buying a whole load of food to take home and feed our respective families.
It was a brilliant day, with the company I was in being the best bit. Plus Terri had some fabric for me from her recent trip to Australia. (I may have mentioned to her that she could be my fabric mule.) She loves fussy cuts as much as I do so here is what is now added to my stash.
Plus Terri and I share the same sense of humour so she knew I would find this fabric hysterical too.
Just have to decide what project to use it in now! Anyone know any butchers in need of a quilt?
