Perhaps the strangest thing I brought back from England this time round is....
Now, I know that they're not everyone's cup of tea, but I love them! As a child I couldn't bear them and would hide them under my mashed potatoes so that I didn't have to eat them, but not anymore! I'm making up for lost time! I love them with mash and gravy yuuuummm. They're an essential part of Christmas day menu too.
I found them here last summer in Carrefour (supermarket) - which is strange because apparently (according to my aunty) there needs to be a frost on the ground for them to be good. These were imported though, and you can get all veggies all year round now after all. Since this sighting of the sprouts though I haven't been able to find them again. I can only imagine that maybe they didn't sell well? Maybe I was the only one to buy them? Mmmmmm
I had to pay excess for my luggage this time, but the sprouts were worth every penny.
