Nigel Slater, in The Kitchen Diaries, reminds us that there’s good stuff out there:

“On grey January days we must make our own fun. Today is a flat day that only seems to come to life when I go shopping, returning with bags of Italian lemons complete with their bottle-green leaves… People get down about this time of year, but even today there were…clementines heavy with juice and bunches of narcissi to cheer us up. There is good stuff if you are prepared to go and find it.”
