UK Foods I Miss from Canada
Of course, when I am in Canada there are things I have gotten used to in UK that I miss. Tea every hour with cakes or something sweet when I am at my in-laws. Good quality inexpensive chocolate. A hot English breakfast. This one seems to be missing the toast. Mince pies...usually 12 for a pound at Christmas. Chip shops. Apple sauce with dinner. A good inexpensive Indian curry. Revels. I suppose these are the UK version of Bridge Mixture...just a different mix of things. Melon for a dinner starter. Those big tins of chocolate for only £5 at Christmas. Roasted vegetables. All recipes by weight measure as opposed to volume scale. In one sense, it is a bit easier to always have a big scale sitting on your counter top. I asked Nigel what he misses from the UK when he is in Canada and he said good yogurt, UK Cadbury's chocolate and Galaxy chocolate.
