Happy St George’s Day!
I only remembered it was when I saw an offer on something random like double cream at Sainsbury’s on Saturday 🙂
But as it is the patron saint of England’s day, what about some classic English food? Like this, for example:
Ya can’t get much more classic English than apple crumble. Admittedly it’s not usually eaten in the mornings – but who says you can’t have pudding for breakfast? You can when it’s this one.
I’d forgotten just how good that is; it was perfect with a dollop of plain soya yoghurt on top – even I couldn’t quite go for custard or ice cream for breakfast 🙂
It started so well but the rest of the day’s food wasn’t patriotic at all; although Mullerlight yoghurts are made in Shropshire, for example, the company itself ain’t exactly home-grown… the name’s a slight giveaway… but hey, some credit for a partial effort, surely!
So here’s something else that does fit the day’s theme:
You can’t get much more English/British than talking about the weather and I think it’s probably quite apt that it’s poured down all of St George’s Day. Also, notice the fact it’s going to rain every day this week – as it did last week – and this is a county that’s not only in the grip of a drought, but where there’s a strict hosepipe ban. And you also can’t get more English than something that mental.
I love it 🙂
What’s your favourite classic English food?
