Figs and ham


  
I am finding my feet once more, carving my way through September.  The children have settled into term and I am beginning to enjoy the peace of each day.

Work is busy: new products, bespoke orders and the building up of stock for, whispers, that thing that happens in a few months time.


 
 
I still stop for lunch every day.

It's not a long lunch.




And never fancy.

I turn pages of a magazine, catch up on Twitter or read my favourite blogs.
 
This week I mostly eat figs and ham.  A feast for the eyes and tongue.
   



The figs are ripe and juicy.  The ham is salty and thinly sliced.  On the first day I had no bread other than English muffins.  On subsequent days I could not dream of accompanying my figs and ham in any other way.

I've eaten figs this week too - though mine didn't look half as classy.

That ham looks really good and the figs are so photogenic. I'm always a bit underwhelmend by a fig though.

Lovely simple lunch.... I never strike it lucky with supermarket figs, though, always pallid and uninteresting. Perhaps I need to go back to Greece more often!

I NEED figs, now! I adore them and just the sight of them sets my mouth awatering. But with cream cheese for me I think!

And before I was hurried toward publish by a whippet's paw on the keyboard I was going to say, having worked from home for most of my life, that it's important to stop for a while in the middle of the day and do something else, isn't it. Essential really.

The decline of the East side blues scene was disheartening, but, it also gave rise to the need
for a fresh start, which came in the form of the next blues-only venue, Antone's, founded by the late Clifford Antone, during the summer of 1975.
