There are a few things that I enjoy that I cannot get here, and I recently found two of them whilst NOT looking. I can go to a website and buy them or there are a few specialist stores here to get them, but mostly they are very expensive, so I go without. Anyway, there are enough new things here to try, that it is no biggie. However, sometimes, just sometimes, I would like to get my hands on some of these items. Simple things too.
For example, for time to time I enjoy a bacon sandwich. Now I cannot get English style bacon here. Canadian bacon is not the same, so I have to put up with what I can get. I do miss the nice big lean meaty rashers, with just a strip of fat around the outside. Anyway, when I make a bacon sandwich, I like to add a little brown sauce. No, not ketchup. Anyway, whilst in Bi-Lo recently I came across London Chop Sauce. It was a bit pricey – $2.89 for a small bottle – but it said it was authentic, and imported from England, so I thought I would try it. It is good, and now, although I still have not found a supply of English cut bacon, the bacon sandwiches I make now have a familiar tasting accompaniment.
Around the same time, I found that Publix sell English Crumpets. Yummy, I like those just toasted with butter, and sometimes with just a little Philly on top too.
It is just the simple things in life…No tags for this post.
It was raining hard this evening, but it was dry across the tracks.
Kat and I decided to go out to get something to eat, and go do a little grocery shopping too. Kat was muttering about having a craving for Mexican lately. Good job, it’s the food, and not what’s under the sombrero, I thought…
Anyhow, we headed off to a little Mexican restaurant in Hanahan. It was throwing the rain down by the truckload, and the water was pooling in the road in places and chucking up horrendous spray at times. Not the best night to be out driving about.
Anyway, once we turned off Rivers Avenue and headed over the railroad tracks we also crossed the county line. We got into the restaurant, sat down, and I asked for a Corona to drink. Thought I’d have a Mexican beer to go with the Mexican food.
“Sorry Senor, no beer on a Sunday, not in Hanahan.”
The coffee I ordered instead was instant too. Yuck. Anyway, the food was good, and that was the main reason for the visit.
Like I said, although it was raining hard, it was dry across the tracks.No tags for this post.
