What has happened to salad?? When did it go from a conflagration of slicing, dicing and dressing to garden clippings???
While out in the High Street, Big Sis and I trundled into Iceland for a few make-do essentials when I decided that I would have some prawns and salad for my dinner. She grabbed a bag of salad produced by a nationally known brand name and off we went. Later I undid the bag and tipped it into my dish, it did not look the appetising delight as imagined between the freezers but we make do.
Well, that is not all together what I thought. My exact thoughts were it looks and tastes like roadside hedge trimmings. My innards concurred and the cramping sent the alarm bells ringing and my digestive system accelerated the handling of these awful stalks and leaves.
Since when did ‘salad’ [as opposed to garnish] kick out the cucumber, the celery and the radish; when were the tomato, pepper and sweetcorn banished; as for the carrot, spring onion and beetroot when were they expelled from the ensemble.
Compensation of sorts tonight .. I am having my hair cut so Nephew, Niece [well neph’s wife but i’ll always see her as niece], the four-foot ninja and bump [there is another ninja currently in the oven] along with a bucket of KFC, the orgasmic gravy and fries – yes!!
