That's just so easy for me......Chicken Tikka Jalfrezi (with lots of sliced green chillies), Pilau Rice and peshwari naan from The Ganjees in Gee Cross.....sorry,I'm advertising there but it is/was heavenly Would be the only reason I'd be desperate to jump on the next Thomas Cook back to M'cr

Hey Butch,

Seems to me I've seen Mushy Peas in the British Shop in Market Mall.

By the way did you ever get a chance to try Mudders Fish 'n Chips over by the airport?

Don't really know. I only know it's expensive because you lot keep complaining about the price. If that's all you've known then it doesn't appear too high priced.

I never developed a taste for beer. I left Liverpool at 16, to young to drink decent beer and the legal drinking age here in Alberta in 1963 was 21. So I developed a taste for something much worse Coca Cola, preferably with lime juice in it.

I only drink red wine now because they tell me its good for my heart.

We have a friend who is more than happy to make a batch up for us when we ask, all we have to do is provide the bottles, the money for the kit and pick it up when its ready.

Over the last year I have developed an oatcake addiction. So it would be oatcakes.

OK, confession! I actually bought some from the 'Taste of Britain' shop in Eau Claire market the other day! For 6 bucks!
