I Do Love Food

>I do love food. When I was young, food was rationed. So much of this, or that, you were allowed. Each person had a ration book for adults and a child. So much butter so much sugar, a few ounces of meat. If you grew your own produce, fresh veg was a treat. And what was put on the table, you did love to eat. Many years have passed, and food is not rationed anymore. The choice on the supermarket shelf, tells there is no sign of war. Now we are leaving the EU, what will the supermarkets do? Will the shelves be empty and bare? Or will more British produce be for sale there. I do love food, so hope it’s there. British, nice with a price that’s fair.<

Thanks, actually I eat so little. Food seems to come from all over the wold not just the EU. Perhaps we might get fish and chips cheaper. As you say we shall just have to wait and see. Contest wanted particular food, still when did we obey rules lol.
