A List Of Goodies

The English Christmas goodies have started to arrive, I shall have to hide them, from myself.
Years ago,  it was almost impossible to find English Christmas foods in the U.S. but nowadays with the click of a mouse, or a stroll to the import aisle at Publix, they are easily found.
It surely makes those memories of Christmas in England around the table, feel so much closer.



Happy, happy Christmas,
that can win us back to the delusions of our childish days;
that can recall to the old man the pleasures of his youth;
that can transport the sailor and the traveller,
thousands of miles away,
back to his own fire-side and his quiet home!

~Charles Dickens, The Pickwick Papers, 1836

I love the photos. I have some of that Yorkshire Tea and I just love shortbread cookies. I love the quote from The Pickwick Papers. Christmas is a magical time of year. You have a wonderful day, hugs, Edna B.

A lot of things with such great memories of Christmas from across the ocean. I like how you can continue the tradition and they are readily available. The colors of your photos are so special.

Very beautiful and festive photos!

I had to get my Mincemeat Pie Filling, by "the click of a mouse" this year. Did not see it, in my usual grocery store.

My husband loves a Mincemeat Pie with my crust. I like it too, but can not eat my crust, as I can not eat Gluten.

Enjoy the inward procession, of Traditional Christmas Treats, arriving at your home!

"Good King Wenceslas looked out
On the feast of Stephen,
When the snow lay round about
Deep and crisp and even."

I have a real weak spot for shortbread cookies. Those look scrumptious and I would have to hide them from myself, too. Merry Christmas to you and thanks for sharing these British delights. :-)

I love all of your photographs, and funnily enough I've just bought some Yorkshire tea, it makes a good brew/cuppa :)

All the best Jan
