Turkey and strawberries

Grilled Turkey and Strawberry Salad
Turkey in the strawberry season is terrific.
Lynne and I sat outside tonight and ate this recipe for the third but not the last time this summer.
Lynne tells me she could eat this day after day. It’s beautiful.

Our joy was only limited by a couple of lads washing their motorbikes with the aid of a 2 stroke pump.

The noise was bad enough
But the smell was insufferable.
Goodness gracious me.
What makes people so selfish?
No way is strawberry vinaigrette enhanced by 2 stroke fumes.

Tomorrow I plan a fish curry.
Would it be enhanced by a 2 stroke mixture.
I think not.
