It wouldn't be a thanksgiving post unless I mixed in some pictures of "Americandy"
The American candy/snack store my bf discovered in town.
Because Thanksgiving is not a holiday here (obviously)
people don't get Friday off of work..
So instead of cooking Thursday,
I cooked Friday.
I bought some imported canned pumpkin.
and made my favorite Paula Deen Pumpkin cake recipe,
as well as..
and mac n cheese.
They were super confused about the candied yams and mac n cheese..
since mac n cheese is not considered a side dish here..
and they were like "where is all the veg?"
and i was like..
"pretty sure there is celery in the stuffing. duh."
The real highlight though was Americandy (yes that's what it is called..i didn't make it up..unfortunately)
Holy poptart and sugar cereal heaven..
sugary cereal is outlawed here in grocery stores
Apparently it makes children all cracked out?
After I was done having a full body sweat from the overwhelming american scents
I went to the check out with my cheese puffs and flaming hot cheetos
and in my best american accents was like
"this place is freaking awesome!"
and the scottish guy was all
"ya people think it's totally weird"
What is weird about a giant butterfinger priced at 8pounds ($12.00)?
