Picking your own vegetables, eating some right away and putting the rest in the freezer.

I had some of our home grown potatoes tonight as jackets, they were yummy - much nicer than shop-bought ones :)

Even just something as simple as knowing that you can make a salad with your own herbs and chillies...

Yep, just had the last of my mum's home-grown potatoes and I agree with that!

Home-grown French beans - freshly picked and cooked, dressed with walnut oil and white wine vinegar, with thin slices of parmesan over the top, accompanied by French bread.

Just had it for supper tonight ... the beans were still growing at 6.15 this evening :D

At an event a while ago, I had a beautiful canapé of green beans wrapped in prosciutto and baked in the oven. Absolutely gorgeous...even if beans weren't home grown!

or from the pick-your own....

I'd love a garden. Keeping eye on ground-floor flat in case the neighbour moves out...

Blackberry jam for breakfast from our own bushes. The freezer is full of blackberries as well - I love blackberry and apple crumble

I'll second that one, Jenefer, though it's blackberry and nectarine crumble I'll be making later on, since nectarines are relatively cheap at the moment and we have a dish of over-ripe ones.

Even simpler - picking a handful of blackberries along the path on the way back from the paper shop, rinsing them and dropping them straight onto my muesli.

Having a decent shower (pressure/heat-wise) after the rubbish ones you get in most hotels.

Agree about the showers in most hotels, but if you ever get to stay in a Kempinski hotel, you will be spoiled for any other showers. We stayed in one near Frankfurt a couple of years ago. Shower cubicle the size of the average hotel bathroom, all marble and chrome, digital temperature gauge set into the wall, shower head the size of a dinner plate. We couldn't afford breakfast there though and had to go to Aldi the evening before and eat in the room!

Apologies for dragging up an old thread but I know there are a few West Wing fans here that might be happy to learn that there is a podcast: http://thewestwingweekly.com/

co-hosted by Josh Molina and has had several West Wing cast members discussing the episodes.
