On my trips to England I bring back custard..lots of it. I often bring chocolate but I resisted this time as I seemed to have put on a bit of extra weight during the month there.
I also bring bacon and Brie...because I love both in a sandwich. I miss bacon and pork when I'm at home in the way that we always miss things we can't get. But whilst I'm in England I don't even think about them. I didn't eat any pork during my visit and only had a couple of bacon sandwiches.
My luggage was 2 kilos overweight this time. I usually get away with much more but this time I was asked to either pay 18 pounds excess baggage, or to remove the equivalent of 2 kilos from my suitcase and transfer to my hand luggage. I did attempt the latter, but realised that the only way I could fit anything into my hand luggage...which was only my laptop bag...would be to remove bacon, Brie, custard and also 2 items requested by my friend Gwen...slug pellets and woodworm treatment!
Knowing that these items would definitely be confiscated from my hand luggage I ended up paying the 18 pounds. Worth every penny of course as I have throughly enjoyed my bacon and Brie sandwiches since I returned.
And there's nothing quite like an English fry-up is there? Very unhealthy but delicious and most definitely comfort food. So that's what I had for breakfast this morning:
The diet starts tomorrow!
