    was at physio today, and someone said that they would love to have gravy and biscuits,,,,,,for breakfast.
    [color=#a0522d]then had to explain to both dh and the americans that biscuits to us are cookies and biscuits to them is like our scones,
    [color=#a0522d]

    Canadians seems to be a hybrid of sorts between brits and americans. Some of your expressions we share, some american expressions are foreign to us. Yuck. Can't imagine eating gravy for breakfast.

    hey anna, you didnt have the fish and chips for tea,,,,,you had them for dinner.
    no such thing as tea over here unless it comes in a glass with ice,,yuk !

    occasionally real people will have hot tea, but not like us brits with milk, usually flavoured and without milk.

    of course we just had a food parcel arrive,,,teabags.

    The biscuits and gravy for breakfast looks gross, how anyone can eat that is beyond me. Then again pancakes and syrup and sausages on the same plate doesn't really appeal either.

    My dh likes the biscuits and gravy, i don't like it.
    My son refuses to let me buy the tetley tea in Ralphes as he thinks it won't taste anything like british tea.
    Our kettle takes age to boil and i joke that i can boil the kettle, make the toast , have a shower and be finished before it stopped boiling .
    My kids miss their squash but i'm not paying $4-6 a bottle. they tolerate the koolaid but say it's not the same. I buy the crystal lite brand
