Today was my last day in the office before next year. I have to work tomorrow but from home so I enjoyed a potter around Borough Market as it will be my last for a few weeks. When I return, I will be eating very healthily and back on the diet so I indulged a little today.
I went out for lunch at Wagamama with some of my colleagues: Guarev, Vineeta, Shahina and Zoe. Thank you Indranil for taking the photo 🙂
Look at this extraordinary drink. We speculated about that little goldfish swimming amongst the seaweed. Actually it is a jasmine “tea” but without the tea. It is hot water poured over a jasmine flower and very pleasant. I also drank their new blueberry, apple and ginger juice which was lovely.
I had miso soup with pickles.
Followed by a chicken in teryaki sauce dish with rice and vegetables. I forget the name of it but it was number 70 ! I liked the chicken, sauce and vegetables but not all the rice. I am not a fan of boiled white rice and this bowl was half filled with rice.
I wandered round the market looking for some gifts and perhaps some treats to have at home. I bought some of these lovely clementines.
Admired the apples but was not in an apple mood today.
Billy – is this what you have in your vegetable box? Salsify !
A couple of these made their way in to my bag too. I confess, I was thinking gin & tonic rather than anything else.
We always used to have a bowl of nuts at Christmas but haven’t done so in recent years.
There were several stalls selling mulled wine which gave the market a wonderful aroma.
Hello Monmouth Coffee Shop. I had to treat myself as one of my New year resolutions will be to cut back on the lattes. I am going to allow myself one a week only.
I have many nemeses and one is honeycomb. I came across a stall selling honeycomb and honeycomb mixed with chocolate and nuts. I caved and bought a bag. Monmouth coffee and honeycomb is a wickedly naughty but heavenly combination.I am busy this evening so I made a quick and easy supper of Red Leicester omelette with kale.
I might have a clementine next.
