Gordon’s Shopping List:
Mushrooms, Partridge, Pheasant, Venison, Kale.
I was going to make this a real country song, but felt it a little childish. However a little bit of our country larder anyway. By no means all: Farmers and growers will be more important than ever now. What with Brexit Etc.
Frying tonight, or in a stew,
Beef or pork, or lamb will do.
How about chicken?
Any for roast.
Or fish of all kinds, fresh from the coast.
Baking tonight, pies, cakes, tarts, biscuits or sponge.
What about bread?
So many for toast.
Flours and sundries to try,
A little bit of D.I.Y.
Berries all right, to put in the jams,
Or eat with some cream.
Blackberry pie, you know what I like.
Tomatoes for ketchup,
And sandwiches too.
Milk and honey, butters and cheese.
Yoghurt or milk shakes just as you please.
Potatoes, plumbs, grapes on the vine.
Apples and cider, or a little white wine.
Turnips and parsnips, carrots and greens,
Good for your blood, body and brain.
Celery, broccoli, cauliflower, peas
Sprouts or rhubarb, onions and grain.
