“What would you like for tea?” I asked Little Boots, expecting a request for some unlikely foodstuff in combination with gravy.

(All food is improved by the addition of gravy apparently)

Nevertheless, I was still a little thrown by a demand for a broccoli sandwich.

Not just any broccoli sandwich mind, as the very precise instructions that followed made clear. No, this was a sandwich made from a warm naan bread cut in two between which is placed hot broccoli, “sliced into tiny, tiny stalks.”
