Hold the sea bass


We´re flying off tonight.
Nopisto informs me that I´d better not be expecting much from the seafood in Plymouth. Never mind. I never make it to the good restaurants when I´m England. I´m too much in love with their bread.
I start off with toast for breakfast, and a couple of sausages with jam, to be on the safe side, because tourism really takes it out of you.
I´m pretty quick to adapt to local times, and am ravenous by one. Sandwich shops lure me in with their mindboggling array of fillings and breads and pasties. And by five o´clock, well, it would be flying in the face of providence not to have a couple of finger sandwiches and a scone, right?
So who cares about fish restaurants? I won´t be wanting seared scallops on a bed of mesclun. I´ll settle for fish and chips, lots of malt vinegar, sitting on the pier. And maybe a couple of apples, and a Double Decker bar.

I´m back on Wednesday, but maybe I´ll be able to dash off a quick post at some point.

Eating fish and chips with malt vinegar while sitting on a pier would be a hard meal to beat.

Hacía mucho que no entraba en tu blog y como mañana me voy con María P. a Myanmar (Birmania) me he leído todos los últimos y de paso grabado algunas de las ilustraciones en un fichero especial "Lobstersquad". Pregunta: ¿Buttermilk es nata?. Es un placer leerte. Tu inglés es tan perfecto que a veces me pierdo. Me gustó mucho verte... Soy una privilegiada porque como os conozco, cuando hablas de tu familia y de J, les pongo cara y me compenetro el doble.

Mmm, England. Never saw it as a culinary destination but I'm being told vigorously that I am totally wrong...
