Jungle Tomatoes

I know quite a lot about food so was surprised to only recently discover that lovely tomatoes can be found in the jungles of Holland, just look at these

Tesco Organic Jungle Tomatoes (200g) Holland

Quelle Surprise as the Dutch doubtless say.

These little darlings not only looked good they were sweet and delicious, I ate them as part of a peculiar little test lunch.  I have less than a  month to submit the manuscript of my book and so much to eat before I do so.  Today I tried munging together crunchy peanut butter and cream cheese with grated cheddar and breadcrumbs to make a nutty cheese patty type thing.  It worked!  I really thought it wouldn't which is why I only made one and am still a bit puckish.  Perhaps I’d  better test something else in a minute.

We are still Up North and probably will be so for a while – lots of things to sort out here.  Sometimes, however, we have time for a little relaxation and yesterday we went to Ponteland which was a very surprising village near Newcastle.  It’s a pretty little place, lots of grass and trees, a river, lovely buildings of old golden stone, an ancient pele tower and a Waitrose!!  Yes, that’s what I thought - a whole Waitrose in one village!   We've only got one in all of Cornwall.  Obviously the whole thing about it being “grim Up North” is a lie.

So that’s it I’m afraid – I have so much to do and have limited internet time as I’m afraid I’m on the dongle.  At my age!

Pin It!

What gorgeous little tomatoes, and a great little patty, would never have thought to combine cream cheese and peanut butter, but looks and sounds great.
