Take a shop bought sweet shortcrust pastry base, some apples (*), some cinnamon, some sugar and a bit o’ butter and bung in a pie dish! Voila, apple pie in 25 minutes. Not as good as momma used to make it, but still highly delectable :)

(*) being leftovers from the work fruit baskets

Every time we come back to Leicester, we always make a point to go to Buck’s chippy. It’s insane to think you can have a portion of cod ‘n chips or half a chicken and chips for 5 quid that can feed two people!


We loved having you here. Safe trip back xxx.

It’s Sunday. I’m cooking a Ben birthday / mom early Christmas feast and listening to the music of my teen years:

Katy brought me back a little present from England. Yay!

According to the Internet Archive, this is what my website (and I) looked like back in 2004. That was the year I met crazy English girl.


Though to be fair, the picture was taken at least 2 years prior, when I was living near UofM and not Snowdon – probably around the time of crazy German girl.


Now this! This, is a proper English piece of deep-fried cod goodness. Served with a small mountain of chips. For a fiver.


Mountie says hello, eh?



When I was a teenager, still living at my parents’ and afterwards in my shared flat in Montreal, I used to have this poster. It was from the 1988 Pink Floyd Canadian tour. It was made by a company/artist called Harron.

It is now completely impossible to find one.

This makes me sad.
