When I was in the states just recently I had questions regarding the weird food that Brits have had in their culinary traditions. Please be aware some of the names are rather rude:
Steak and Kidney Pie
Toad in the Hole
Bangers and Mash
Bubble and Squeak
Pickled scotch eggs
Tatties and Neeps (3rd paragraph down)
Girdle Sponges (fried sponge cakes)
Love in Disguise
If you click on the links...you'll see that most of them aren't disgusting....they are normal dishes with just have incredibly weird names. I know that British food gets a bad reputation but there are some of the world's best restaurants in this country. I wonder if these Michelin restaurants serve things like spotted dick though? Makes you wonder.
On other news....have a serious case of the flu at the moment...so no new pictures as I've been hiding out in my pajama's the last few days. Hoping it doesn't interfere with my marathon training even more than this crazy December has. Would love suggestions for getting better quick. With marathon training and my birthday this weekend...I don't particularly want to be home-bound.
Hope you are all well
