Spring is on the way!

  Keeping going with the EatingBritish thing has been a bit difficult for the last few weeks.  I think the unusually harsh winter led to very difficult growing conditions for British farmers.  Anyway, I noticed today that I am no longer limited to cabbage, carrots, potatoes and Brussels sprouts!  No, pak choi and tomatoes are back on the menu!  Woo!

 So, there they are, just in case you didn't believe me.  I was quite hungry after my shopping trip and needing something quick, so I opted to a stir fry, with bacon, pak choi and tomato.  I know it might sound odd putting tomato into a stir fry, but it works, trust me.  The trick is to slice the tomato (fairly thickly will do) and then add close to the end of cooking, but give it enough time to dissolve to give a thick, rich sauce.  Awesome!

 Serve on a bed of rice.  Nice.
