We also had some of the Marquis's colleagues home grown tomatoes with spring onion and vinaigrette as a salad for dinner. I found I actually like tomatoes when they are like that: ripe and not far travelled.
But best of all, the Marquis has started reading me 'Thud!' - voices and all. Ooh, I wish Pratchett wrote more - it's sooo nice when the Marquis reads to me. Hm... I think I'll offer to read him some Diana Wynne Joneses, maybe he'll like that.
