Today was going to be one of those days when very few customers would brave the rain, so we decided to cook a trial batch of ratatouille. This will be added to the menu of jacket potato fillings for the autumn/winter. It's hot, vegetarian, gluten-and-dairy-free and full of colourful vegetables. Thus ticks quite a few boxes.
We all played a part. Bev sliced the aubergines and onions, Nancie worked on the peppers and courgettes, Annie chopped the garlic cloves.
Then a strange thing happened.
In the midst of the cutting and chopping and softening and adding and seasoning came the coffee drinkers. More than we would ever imagine ventured out on a very rainy day to take refuge with hot drinks, lunches and teas.
And the ratatouille is a winner.
Therefore, all in all, a pretty good day thank you.
