Oh how I miss good old British food, you just can’t beat a Good roast with Yorkshire puddings on a Sunday evening covered with some warm seductive gravy, mmm mm!
Unfortunately I don’t even have the local fish and chip shop to make up for the lack of of Yorkie pudds and pork sausages, basically most things I’m used to in England are not available here.
But the other week I was lucky enough to have a taste of home, some good old Heinz beans the special edition version with spicy meatballs – my favourite! Served with toast and an episode of Coronation street my homesickness was lifted for the day and the beans and toast was a nice change to the usual potato, fish chunks and egg sauce.
Original Heinz beans are actually sold here in Swedish stores but for the more British confectionary there is a English shop here in Gothenburg located at Plantagegatan, so I am extremely lucky if the sickness gets too bad it’s a good place to buy some comfort food to get me through the dark days.
