Gregg is trying to buy some Linguiça, a favorite of his which is a Portuguese pork sausage. Gregg always remembers his Step-Grandfather Johnny every time we buy it. He was of Portuguese descent and I think that is where Gregg first tasted the sausage, on his trips with his Mother up to Taunton, Massachusetts, when they visited her mother and Johnny. I only met Johnny once, when Gregg was stationed in Newport, Rhode Island back in 1977, and we drove up to Boston for me to meet Johnny. He took us to Fenway Park and we watched the Red Sox play a double-header - Carl Yastrzemski was one of the players in those days, a Johnny favorite. Johnny was one of the nicest people I had ever met, a great guy.
Here Gregg patiently waits in the meat department but the lady with the cell phone to her ear has put in a rather large order. He decides to go back ten minutes later but she is still there. Half an hour later after we had had a good look around and done most of our shopping, he checked again and she had gone.
It is a super nice store and fun to look around. So much to see and check out.
Next stop Gregg at the cheese department.
That night we had a Ploughman's for supper. One of those meals where you can safely say the simplest things are the best, basically good hardy bread and a wonderful variety of cheeses, accompanied by an organic vegetable salad, with pickled onions and chutney.
We head out to the check-out but on our way Denise 'checked out' her favorite, the chocolate counter and no I didn't buy any. Maybe next time?
