having left Uk many years ago, ive found this website very helpful and a little taste of home with the humour also. But a taste of home brings me to my title.
A taste of home is something i often miss, but have found that cooking traditional English food now and then helps alot, but imported food where i am, can get too some crazy prices and as such not seen that often. So whilst wandering around my local supermarket i saw a display of the ever so evil and thoroughly missed chocolate hobnobs, and wow they were on special offer. I hadnt seen them in years, now i faced a challenge.
During my year of healthy eating, my girlfriend has stood by me and been so good by not having chocolate and biscuits in the house. ( not a chocolate person, but ooooh those biscuits), so i decided to face the challenge and bought her a packet as i knew she would enjoy them, and had never tasted them. A treat for her and a test for me. I even taught her the British art of dunking, what a good boyfriend i was.
She was hooked, sat on the sofa and over two nights polished them off, oh i was so proud of myself. Resisted temptation and was quite the saint preaching at her about fat contents and calories. Which i might add she totally ignored, and couldnt answer as she was doing a hamster impression with her stuffed cheeks. But i was glad to see the empty packet in the bin, and i felt another hill had been climbed.
Today i got home, and looked in the cupboard to discover SIX packets of the damn things.
When i asked her WHY!!!!!!!!!!!, she smiled and said in a very sweet voice " ooh i like them alot"
Arghh ive created my own monster,
NO more Mr Nice guy for me.
