Tesco baps or homemade granary?

I have been working on a scene in The Four Matthews featuring the hardy participants in the walking holiday eating their packed lunches.

Such seemingly prosaic passages can be fun to write because they reveal so much about character.  I have to imagine what a particular character might have on their sandwiches.  And what kind of bread?  Tesco sub rolls? Homemade? Perhaps they would do without bread altogether and go for Ryvita or a salad?

Little things like this making writing a pleasure.  I keep in mind the old ‘show don’t tell’ adage, and try to paint a picture about what kind of lives these people might lead.
