Sorry, I did not notice you were in Florida. The Superstore is in Canada. But I am sure you can get the frozen Yorkshire puds in the US.

Yes, once you have plonked a large portion of mushy peas on top and they have gone nice and suitably soggy, no one will ever know there were store bought.

They bring them over on Yorkshire Airlines, watch their promotional clip:

Actually not, but if I ask really nicely, my husband will make them for our Sunday dinner.

Well, there's a business opportunity for you. The puds I mean, not your husband.

Trouble is, you will then have to educate the whole nation on how to eat with a knife and fork as opposed to just a fork.

As God is my witness, 1 minute 19 seconds in to that video, the Air Hostess with the cross-over pinny - la Hilda Ogden- dishing up the mushy peas is the dead spit for the woman that was very nearly my mother-in-law!

BTW: I love mushy peas! And you can get the genuine article -and for a reasonable price- at some of the Loblaws subsidiaries ...

Batchelors Bigga Dried Peas: Selected Marrowfats! Right from the UK!

... they have to put the French on the packets with stickers! (Don't go for the 'Quick Soak' ... you want the old fashioned ones your Mum left covered over night! )

Thanks again, John, for that YouTube video ... and for the tip about where to get Yorkshire puds!

Byecklass love, I don't think anyone has ever started a more enjoyable -or popular- introductory post!

And I still want a table if you ever open up that cafe ... and mine's a Spotted Dick for afters! ... (God alone knows what a Yank may think of that statement should one stumble onto this post ... only I don't care! )

... and if you ever get tired of your husband ... you just bring your Bero book and I'll bring the ring!
