British Nigel: What do you miss the most about England?
Me (not hesitating for a second): Marks & Spencer and British chocolate, oh and Boots. The chemist not the footwear.
British Nigel: Duhh!! WRONG ANSWER!! You are SUPPOSED to say you miss your friends and family.
Me: Well OF COURSE I miss my friends and family you big numpty, that goes without saying, but I also miss M&S and Boots, oh and Yorkshire puddings, I really miss those. Mmmm, a Yorkshire pudding with gravy would go down a treat right now.
British Nigel: Why don’t you just make some?
Me: Have you ever tasted my cooking?
British Nigel: No, you never cook.
Me: No and there’s a good reason for that. I suppose I could try making Yorkshire puddings, although I’d have to go and buy a muffin pan, and all the ingredients. Oh and the flour’s different here too y’know
British Nigel: Is it?
Me: Oh yes, it’s not plain or self-raising like it is at home, it’s all multi-purpose this and that and it didn’t exactly work out well the one time I tried to make scones over here. They were a disaster and if there’s one thing I’m good at in the kitchen, it’s a scone. It would be much easier if I could just buy some Yorkshires from a Marks and Spencer. An M&S food hall would go down a storm in Manhattan. New Yorkers would be gagging for their ready meals
British Nigel: If you say so.
Me: I do
Mmmmm mmmmm mmmmmmm. I love a Yorkshire pudding!! What do you miss the most from home readers? Excluding friends and family of course :-)
