How bout bangers and mash? That's pretty easy. Or, you can just bring whisky. Here's the recipe. Add a dram of Glenfiddich to a glass. Drink neat. Enjoy. :)

Oooh try:
Johnnycakes, spice cake, tapioca pudding, cucumber and onion salad. They were really into the puddings, sweet and mostly savory.

And of course hard apple cider was a big favorite.

Sorry to say James Bond was ruined for me because Daniel Craig is the first Bond who: did not know how to use a gun, is afraid of water, and can not drive a stick shift. What a PUSSY!

  • Annie Dillard: The Living: A Novel

    Annie Dillard: The Living: A Novel
    Currently reading.

  • Azar Nafisi: Reading Lolita in Tehran: A Memoir in Books

    Azar Nafisi: Reading Lolita in Tehran: A Memoir in Books
    Part feminist outcry against the Islamic regime in Iran, but mostly a love letter to books. Nafisi looks at Lolita, Daisy Miller, The Great Gatsby, and Pride and Prejudice not only as works of literature themselves, but through the lens of students during the heyday of the Islamic revolution. My only caveat? It helps to have read the books she discusses.

  • Lauren Weisberger: Everyone Worth Knowing

    Lauren Weisberger: Everyone Worth Knowing
    I picked this up at the airport. After hearing about my grandmother's death I just couldn't deal with "Silent Spring," and this seemed less objectionable than Nora Roberts or Michael Crichton. I finished it, mainly to see if it could really keep up the flow of utter awfulness and banality right up until the end. Easily the worst book I've read since that romance novel about the Corgi. Avoid at all costs.

  • Amy Stewart: Flower Confidential: The Good, the Bad, and the Beautiful in the Business of Flowers

    Amy Stewart: Flower Confidential: The Good, the Bad, and the Beautiful in the Business of Flowers
    One of the most interesting nonfiction books I've read recently. Stewart examines the cut-flower industry, and you'll never look at flowers the same way again. A must-read for anyone who buys flowers.
