Food, glorious food…
I remember the first time we walked into a huge supermarket in Germany. I was astounded by the meat section. There were rows and rows and more rows with just meat. Minced, slabs, big, small, whole chickens, hundreds of sausages to choose from… wow. And the only fish on sale was smoked salmon in wrapping. Disappointing for fish fans, but heaven for those carnivores amongst us.
Last week we went home to London for a memorial. It’s the first time we have been back this year (!!!) even though it’s cheap and only an hour away. We popped to the dentist, but our phones were on Germany time so we got all the timings confused and ended up with an hour to wait before Jason’s appointment. So we wandered around and found Morrisons Supermarket.
We both enjoy visiting supermarkets in other countries and after 9 months of visiting only German shops, it felt amazing to be walking down the aisles surrounded by such treats! There was a whole aisle JUST FOR CHEESE!!
I think I spent about half an hour just dribbling in that section alone! And you can see all the wonderful things we bought in this photo:
WHITE CHOCOLATE fingers (since when do they exist??), cheap raspberries, cheap nuts, Prawn Cocktail flavour crisps, wasabi peas, cheese and goats cheese (of course), Jacob’s crackers, caramel slices, hummus, Brantoun and Pickle and olives with feta. Let’s just say, it didn’t last very long… hehe!
