Usually on this blog I share photos and descriptions of the many places that Brit Boy and I go to or I will tell you what I’ve been doing around the Yellow House. But I don’t very often tell you about some of the foods that I’ve taken to eating since I moved to England. By the way, on Friday, I will have been living here four years!!! I know it’s cliché to say this, but time really does fly. The fact that it’s four years is really wild to me.
Anyway, back to my story. Okay so…different foods in England. Well, usually I just eat things that I ate back home in the United States since I can get an equivalent here sometimes. And I’ve become very good at adapting recipes from home now, so I still can have some of my favorite dishes from back home. Then there are some things that I just have to enjoy when I'm back home in Georgia. I guess that's the beauty of adapting :-) The rest of the time I'm just enjoying the different tastes here.
From time to time I’m going to share some of my favorite foods that I’ve taken to eating here. I guess I'll call the series...ah, "Foods That I Eat Here" ;-) I hope this will give you all more of a picture of my life here…on the food side of things.
I’m not much of a bread lover and I’ve never really been one. But I must admit that I have developed an interest in bread, especially when it’s topped with one of my favorite foods…cheese!!
This is a cheese bap and from time to time I will buy some of these when we’re at the supermarket. It’s not something I could eat every day, but every now and then, I’ll buy a few.
Some of you from back home or elsewhere may be wondering about the name ‘bap’ when it looks like a roll. Well here they call this type of roll a bap. The name ‘bap’ is often used to describe a soft roll and it can come in different shapes and flavors depending on the region. They also sell plain baps without cheese here. Apparently, the word ‘bap’ dates from the 16th century. I wasn't able to find out the word's origin though.
This one I have in the picture is from this morning and it’s my last one for a while. Boo hoo! LOL. Oh well, it was good and I’m sure that if I had them all the time I’d get truly sick of them and I wouldn’t be able to get my hips down the stairs ;-)
A little piece of wonderful….one of my new favorites and it incorporates cheese…I was a happy woman this morning ;-) I’ll share more new favorites in the future!
P.S. – Please check out my other blog. I have a post there about a company that’s selling t-shirts and the proceeds go to help those in Haiti.
