After the house tour, I went to the Square in front of the National Portrait Gallery. It was a beautiful sunny day, so it was nice to soak up my daily intake of Vitamin D.
|This is a monument put up by Parliament to commemorate those who have fought in wars for England.|
|Lovely fountain in the square.|
The reason I am so glad that I walked home from this (besides the exercise), is because I found this random fruit and vegetable stand just south of the Holborn tube station. I got 1+ pounds of cherries (it was more than shown in the picture, but ate some before the picture was taken) for £3, the avocados were £1 for four, and the asparagus for another £1. It was so tasty and so inexpensive. I loved it.

Recipe time. For those of you who don't like asparagus, try snapping off the ends, boiling them in water for 3-5 minutes, making sure they are still mostly firm, or stick them under the broiler for a few minutes. Then, take some mayo - preferably made with olive oil, and add some lemon juice, dill, and pepper to use for dipping. Muy Delicioso.
