Poor Man’s Vegan English Mini-Pasty

September 29, 2011

0

Ohmygoodfriend’spajamas. Sometimes I surprise myself with supremely superb dishes. I wish I were still hungry, just so I could eat another one of these vegan mini-pasties. When I was in England, my kind English pal introduced me to English pasties. Pasties are a sort of smaller calzone filled with beef, potato and onion, although there […]

Crumpets and Tea

September 28, 2011

I feel like a Brit. You wouldn’t believe the excitement on my face when I found crumpets in Trader Joe’s. I was so happy, I gasped with joy. My excitement gathered momentum as I read the ingredients and found no dairy. Fantastic! Now, you’re probably wondering why I don’t make them from scratch. Ha. I […]

My Last Jammy Dodger

Greetings, my fine, friendly pals. I just ate my last Jammy Dodger. Sad day. It’s been a long while since I’ve bothered to go grocery shopping, as I ran out of good food early last week and then went on a trip to Florida for the US holiday weekend. Poor me, right? Anyway, I have […]

Hello world, I just ate haggis… again. I’m a changed woman. It tastes extremely similar to corned beef hash, actually. It’s just that the corned beef is liver and the hash is oat. So, not much like it, but similar in texture and appearance. Go figure. I may not brush my teeth with a bottle of Jack, […]

Warm and Cozy, Sweet and Sour

Confession time: I only eat breakfast once a week. Oh, I indulge in an enormous, dark cup of coffee every morning, but solid food generally isn’t introduced until 10 or 11. Sunday mornings are another creature. Lunch on Sundays happens in the afternoon, and I mean that in the most literal way possible. Church dominates […]

An Offal Adventure, Part 1

I not one of those people. You know, those people who go out of their way to obtain some outlandish food. No, I create food out of the normal food I already have in my cupboard. On a side note, today I drove a total of 3 hours on the cusp of an impending hurricane […]

Liverwurst… worst lunch for work?

August 11, 2011

I have a confession to make… I absolutely love liverwurst. Call it my German and English heritage, but I find that creamed mass of liver meat delectable. Sure, it’s smelly. I wouldn’t want to kiss someone with liverwurst breath (gross!), but the aroma of a bit of liverwurst spread on a hot, toasty piece of […]
