    That's OK then - US meals sound gibberish to us

    This year we will mainly be conquering Europe

    Wow from a country that has grits ( that's a grade of aggregate here ) cookies (biscuits) chips (crisps) and your cheese is pressurised in spray cans, I travel to Florida at least once a year, I can track you down like a dog !!!

    I'll add maple syrup on the same plate as bacon, brown sugar in baked beans, Cool Whip, shit chocolate, and Egg Nog.

    I tried cheddar cheese grits in America last month. It was honestly one of the worst things I've ever eaten, it looked like wallpaper paste and tasted like how I imagine wallpaper paste tastes. Just awful.

    Maple syrup on a breakfast waffle, with no bacon in sight, is ace.

    Cheese grits are an abomination.

    Good old buttered grits are all you need. With some bacon to dip in it, if you're feeling extravagant.

    Grits are the tugnuts on satan's spot-speckled arse
    There are only two man-made objects that can be seen from space.

    1. The Great Wall of China

    2. Low Hill at Christmas

    Biscuits (which aren't) and gravy (which isn't). WTF is that about?
    Cosy consensus makes for a boring forum.

    Slightly OT, last few Christmas' I've had real stuffing courtesy of the mother in law, and it puts the boxed stuff to shame. I now love stuffing.
    Time that you enjoy wasting, was not wasted.

    I can report the Pret Christmas baguette has not arrived in Birmingham pret yet

    I did enjoy a toasted salt beef and pickle baguette though.

    @b3h - dead easy to make stuffing yourself too..

    Love my husband's stuffing. He only puts sausagemeat, fresh sage, seasoned bread cubes and onions ( not finely chopped) in it, but it always comes out better than mine. Not too dry, not too moist.

    This year will be the first Christmas I've spent with my new partner. I didn't realise she's as Christmas obsessed as PPB. Her and her daughter sang 'Let It Snow' last night. Partly because they like singing Christmas songs and partly to annoy me.

    It's going to be a long couple of months.

    Socks before or after trousers, but never before pants. That's the rule.

    Tried the Big Beef. Not for me, I'm afraid- a cold Yorkshire on bread is far too much stodge.

    I've already gotten through two packs of mince pies too. Does that count as it is Christmas food?

    I like the sound of her. Don't moan if she wants you to take her to the Brum Christmas market.
