I asked how he was enjoying it, & he said it was excellent...except for one thing...it needed BEETROOT!
Bugger him! Now I have an over whelming urge for beetroot....beetroot sandwiches, cold roast meat & beetroot, a pie topped with beetroot, beetroot & creamy mashed spud...etc etc
I set off for the supermarket yesterday, looking for tinned beetroot (they have some surprising things) but not only did they not have it, they hadnt even heard of it....sighhhhhh
Anyway, it got me thinking of things I miss from home....
Dont get me wrong, I am NOT homesick, I love living here, but there are some things I miss!
sooooooo...apart from the obvious of friends, family & my darling wee cat...
Savaloys & Watties tomato sauce
Belgium sausage & Piccalilli
Autumn...my favourite time of the year...crisp mornings followed by beautiful days...
What I do NOT miss...
Dreary, drizzly grey days, for weeks on end
Working ( I pity all you wage slaves)
Living on the smell of an oily rag ...while I am grateful for my pension, living on it in NZ is very difficult ...(here, I live like a queen..smirk smirk)
Sooooo...anyone heading in this direction, please bring me some tinned beetroot, & some "V"...unfortunately I think savaloys, belgium & Mays pies are out of the question... :(
