Toast

Hello from London

Recommended Posts

Hello!

 

I've been following along for a while so thought I should make the jump to signing up properly.

 

I'm from London but spend a fair amount of time in the US and am fascinated by the differences.  I especially love the Dinner thread for pictures of home-cooked food.

 

I don't cook as much as I used to but I'd like to change that and would love to join in.

Welcome, Toast! Hop right in and join the fun! Do you make the most of holidays on both sides of The Pond, or do you stay away from them all? In other words: have you any special plans for the USA Thanksgiving?

I seem to miss thanksgiving every year unfortunately but I love reading about it.  We don’t celebrate here in the U.K. but there does seem to be a trend for “Friendsgiving” gaining some momentum, largely driven by influencers and their constant need for content, IMO.

 

My next trip to the US is DC and I think I’ll be there for NYE which should be fun.

Welcome! This is a good week for home-cooked goodies, as most of us will be hard at work in the kitchen leading up to the Big Day Thursday!


Don't ask. Eat it.

Welcome, @Toast!  So glad you've joined in.  I love to welcome new members, but I'll admit to being especially excited when they are from somewhere that I love!  And, being a lifelong anglophile raised by an English stepdad, I LOVE London.  Nice to hear you mention DC - I was actually born there (a true native Washingtonian) and we live a couple of hours south now.  I'm very much looking forward to your contributions!

Hi Kim!

 

It's lovely of you to welcome me.  I knew that about you actually having enjoyed your mentions of being raised by an English stepdad.  I love the food that you cook too, so different to what I'm used to (although with a definite English twist every now and again!)

 

I hope that doesn't come across as too stalkery!
