First day back at work after the holidays and no time for fun, but I did have to pop out for some groceries and it struck me that some of you Ex-Pat readers might be missing English food as much as I used to. So if you dream of Maltesers or yearn for Jaffa Cakes, these photos are for you!
Here’s the local Sainsburys. You can see that the weather was grey, wet and cold for a change (end sarcasm).
Mr Kipling is still going strong
You know you’re home when Jacob’s cream crackers fill several shelves
As do chocolate digestives
And when they even flavor cashew nuts with Marmite
And when there are all sorts of interesting cheeses, each more delicious than the last. (Honestly, who wouldn’t want to try cheese that’s been aged in a cave?)
This is why I had to see a hypnotist last month to help me lose weight
Now I can walk down that aisle without even stopping. A few weeks ago … not so much!
Until we arrived home, I hadn’t realized how much I had missed familiar foods. Even the sight of a bottle of salad cream made me smile and I hate salad cream.
Is it just me or do you feel the same? If you’re living away from home, what foods do you miss the most? And what do you think of marmite nuts as a concept?
