Today I ventured all the way to Speightstown in the north of the island to run my errands.
On the way back home, I made a pit-stop to purchase fish cakes (fried seasoned cod fish balls) from a friendly vendor raising funds for her church's restoration. She makes the best tasting fishcakes and cassava pone and sweetbread and positions herself outside the church door to sell her delicacies.
I had the hankering for a subby, and I figured a fishcake subby would go down well.
After my purchase of three fishcakes (one for you know who), I headed home to prepare my snack.
As I started to gather all my ingredients I realised that I had forgotten to purchase some lettuce.
Then a light bulb went off in my head...."You crazy girl, you have lettuce growing right outside...."
Yes, believe it or not, those small seedlings that were planted just two weeks ago are maturing in leaps in bounds.

Headed outdoors and plucked a few lettuce leaves for my sandwich.....aahhhh the joy of growing your own food.
The beginning of a great tasting snack
