Fruit market in Philadelphia reading terminal food market

Day 208 – Food explorer

“I am not a glutton - I am an explorer of food” ~ Erma Bombeck This! I love food. Pretty much all food too. I like meat, and fruit, and fish, and vegetables, and bread, and cheese, and.... Well you get the idea. I don't like Rhubarb, something about the way it goes mushy when you cook it just does not work for me. I am not keen on Rice Pudding for similar reasons. There are the odd other thing I am not keen on but there is a damn good reason I spend a fortune on a gym membership…

Rita's gelato Philadelphia sign with evening sky loves

Day 196 – Philly loves

"I believe gelato is meant to be treated as medicine and taken daily as a prescription." ~ Betsy Brandt I love Philadelphia. After London it is my favourite city. It has many wonderful things going for it, the people, the food, the shops, the weather, the history and so much more. I have many loves in the city, places, restaurant, shops etc and one of them is Rita's. We have nothing like this in the UK. Not a thing, it just doesn't exist. The ice cream van and parlours you get in some towns are nice but they don't even…

Day 175 – Icecream Days

“It was the color of someone buying you an ice cream cone for no reason at all.” ~ Lemony Snicket I don't quite know what that colour is but I do definitely know that feeling. There is something warm and gentle about that moment when for no other reason than you can, someone buys you an ice cream cone. In the UK that would be from the Icecream Van which you find all over the place. One of the things that bemused Michael when he first came to the UK was that no matter what the weather you can find…

Day 168 – Crisp and cold

"He was a wise man who invented beer." ~ Plato Beer is one of the worlds oldest prepared drinks. The earliest chemical evidence of beer dates back to circa 3500–3100 BC but there is also evidence that existed as far back as 9500 BC. Today it remains one of the most popular beverages throughout the world. For me I like a good Pale Ale or a crisp cold Lager especially on a hot summers day and of course a cold beer and curry is a marriage made in culinary heaven.

Day 162 – Dining

“The shared meal elevates eating from a mechanical process of fueling the body to a ritual of family and community, from the mere animal biology to an act of culture.” ~ Michael Pollan And there is nothing quite like sitting down with people you care and sharing a good meal. It is one of my favourite things to do. Of course not all meals are good, we have definitely been out with friends to some restaurants that disappointed but that was never as a result of the company we were in. In fact the company usually made up for the…

Day 154 – A bit of French

“The French: a people who have used their sophisticated culture and beautiful language to bequeath to the world the sliced potato.” ~ Bauvard But of course the French don't actually call them that. They call them Pommes Frites or often simple Frites and here in England we call them Chips and what America calls chips we call Crisps. Being married to an American has made me realise just how different our two versions of English really are and even now after 5+ years together we still find words and phrases that the other has no idea what it means.  …

Day 119 – Pie delights

“We must have a pie. Stress cannot exist in the presence of a pie.” ~ David Mamet This quote made me chuckle. I have no idea how a pie eases stress but maybe it is because there is something so neat and perfect about them. In the UK, unlike in America, we are huge fans of the meat/savoury pie and when done well they are basically a whole meal, meat and vegetables all wrapped up in delicious pastry. We do sweet pies as well but here in the UK a pie shop will be predominantly selling savoury delights. We didn't…

Day 105 – Cinnamon loves

“I am not a glutton - I am an explorer of food” ~ Erma Bombeck I am very blessed to married to a man who loves to cook and not just meals, he is also is a regular and very enthusiastic baker. Our house often smells of delicious things he is creating in the kitchen. As a result I am a regular attendee at the gym mainly so I can happily enjoy eating delicious things that he makes like this cinnamon buns.

Wawa coffee cup on football field in England

Day 104 – Wawa experience

"When you come into Wawa for that cup of coffee in the morning or for that snack or for whatever purpose you come to Wawa for, it can be an uplifting experience." ~ Howard Stoeckel I am pretty sure that I am the only person in the UK who turns up to their sons football matches with a Wawa coffee cup. Sadly I don't have a Wawa hoodie to go with it but now I know there is such a thing next time we visit Philly I am going to obtain one. The Wawa is a chain of convenience stores…

Day 42 – Honey Colours

“Well," said Pooh, "what I like best," and then he had to stop and think. Because although Eating Honey was a very good thing to do, there was a moment just before you began to eat it which was better than when you were, but he didn't know what it was called.” ~ A.A. Milne
