Ahhhhh Tescos - I didn't fully appreciate it until I came here -
now its Stop & Shop (with no wine, and no alcohol at all on Sundays - catches me out every time!).

We do have a small UK section with things like Galaxy chocolate - pickled beetroot (which hubby, inexplicably, loves). I linger in front of the shelves sometimes, a bit misty eyed, when I'm feeling homesick!!

I think I remember you saying you were in NY? Have you been to Myers of Keswick yet? It's fantastic, full of all the great things we miss! They have 'proper' sausages/bacon/pies there too!

All we have is bloody HEB here. If there was a Tesco's or Sainsbury's they would blow them out of the water. Christ, I could even live with an Asda.

I've been wanting to get there all week, even though I got back from the UK a few weeks ago!
Have you been to Tea and Sympathy? I love it in there! When the weather gets a bit cooler, I'll be back in there for a sausage and onion butty!
