Ploughman's Lunch


It's a fitting lunchtime meal for today, maybe because eight million people are tuned to the games in London, with a few pondering about how nice it would be to nip out for a quick pint and a ploughman's lunch at the corner pub.  Or perhaps it's because it's August and the relentless heat of southern summer has us all wanting raw veggies and simple food.  Whatever the reason, it is delightfully appetizing to stare at a plate of crisp, farm-fresh organic yellow zucchini, purple peppers, banana peppers and cherry tomatoes.  Add some good cheese, homemade pickle (or Branston if you are British) and a good crusty bread like the Niedlov's brochen, and you are in for a fantastic lunch!
