In my Kitchen October 2011

Wow, another new month already and time for Celia’s “In My Kitchen” post. 😀

A short while back I found out about a gent who drives around the village every Saturday with locally grown veggies to sell to us “locals”.  What a treasure chest he has in his trailer!  Everything is washed and what can be peeled and cut up are all nicely packaged and sealed in bags.  I was very excited to hear that everything has a standard price of just R10 a bag.  I went a touch overboard and Pete was a little concerned about the amount of veggies he was going to eat.  I would have purchased a lot more but I had just been into town the day before and had already bought potatoes, onions, carrots, tomatoes and a few other goodies.  I am very excited to see what he will bring every Saturday.  I have my shopping basket ready and waiting.

On chatting with this lovely farmer, he can also arrange a whole lamb at just R45 a kilo!  Mutton at R35 a kilo and chicken, which I forgot the price of.  Not to worry he will be back on Saturday and I can check with him then.

So…
