Default Hello from Utah

Hi everyone! I've been living in SLC for a couple of months now, all the big stuff (EAD, driving licences, doctors, vet...) is pretty much sorted now and I guess we're at a "Now what?" stage. My time is spent trying to find out the American equivalents of things I know from the UK (no baking apples? Seriously?) and this forum often pops up, so I thought it was about time I joined.

Enough rambling for now

Emma

Hi Emma and welcome to BE

Lots of expats over in our US forums, with everything from advice on all the necessities - to where to find british foods (although that could come under necessities too for some ) - http://britishexpats.com/forum/forumdisplay.php?f=57

Thanks! I've been doing my best to have local foods but the other week I gave in and went to the British grocery store just couldn't make a proper Christmas cake from what my local store has.

Hi Emma

Hope you weren't adversely affected by the high winds and rains yesterday in Utah. How devastating for everyone.

As for baking/cooking apples, we do have them but they are not called what they are named in the UK. In fact, the USA forum had a large thread running on just this topic last month. Why not search for it and have a join in fellow expat johnny appleseeders.

Hello and a big welcome to BE.

Excellent information can be found in the BE Wiki, not forgetting the Living and Moving Abroad forum that will help you, another set of great help is the permanent threads at the TOP of each forum, they are very pertinent to that particular forum and makes sensible reading.

Moderators deal with any problems that arise such as inappropriate posts, spammers etc, you will find their names at the bottom right hand side of each forum's index in bold font.

Please contact me if I can give you any further help.
