C is for Cress - Egg and Cress Sandwiches
Noone ever said the Great Big Veg Challenge had to be sophisticated. Egg and Cress sandwiches are simplicity itself, completely unthreatening to the veg-phobic Freddie. In fact, I put these down in front of him, turned round and when I looked back they had gone. The boy must have an "inhale" mode that bypasses normal eating methods in favour of speed. "What's our blog recipe today Mum?" he asked. "That was it." And he seemed pleased. The score was ten out of ten.
Last week Freddie was delighted to see that we had visitors from the Falkland Islands on the blog. He stuck a football sticker on his map of the world which completely obscured the islands. The GBVC has so far heard from all continents apart from Antarctica...
