Sausage Dave says he is experimenting with different delivery methods in order to get a reasonable delivery cost. Will keep you posted!

Does anyone that lives in the Houston area know where you can buy salad cress? it is easy enough to find water cress everywhere but it is different than the salad cress.

oooh just saw some recently - they had about 3 or 4 different kinds and I thought 'oh that will go nice with some egg sandwiches'
Now where was it? I think it must have been Central Market (on Westheimer) as I have been in there everyday this week lol. It must have been in the fruit and veg bit, in the chiller cabinets, near the mushrooms! (I can picture the shelf but not the shop it's in - weird!)

Hee hee hee! Sounds like me! Thank you so much! I was thinking the same thing, egg and cress sandwich. It's kind of a light food in this Texas heat. I will write this down so I will have it on hand.

That's REALLY good news. I need to try them. I agree that the sausages here have no comparison at all to the British sausages in taste and/or texture. It's making me hungry thinking about it.

Robinsons Barley Water

Orange and Lemon flavours are $1 at the Christmas Tree Shop...our local had two massive crates filled with them.

They also had a bunch of Tesco's own brand biscuits, hobnobs, choc creams, gingernuts.

a mates wife just bought 45 bottles of the stuff

Seems it's in a lot of the other stores and I'd probably be sick of it if I drank it all the time but it's usually only a treat at $8 a bottle

Just picked up chocolate digestives and chocolate hobnobs for $2 a pop at our local Ocean State Job Lot!

(They also had plain digestives).

A couple of excellent finds here.
Firstly, for those craving an 'authentic English' curry :

http://www.thetinytakeaway.com/

Although based in UK they ship worldwide. I highly recommend the korma

Next, for those seeking some decent sausage an bacon :

http://www.balsonbutchers.com/

Might be a little pricey but it's the real deal. None of that close but no cigar disappointment.

Enjoy.

PS.. For those of you that have access to Kroger stores, their new 'superstores' all have excellent international aisles. I just bought Bisto granules, Galaxy bar, mint Aero and a six pack of Vimto from mine.

Depending on what "Publix" store you visit, some of them have quite a decent selection of English chocolate and biscuits too. "Sweetbay" have a pretty good amount of "things you miss" in their "international foods" aisle in some locations as well.
