WoAi’s home cooked English breakfast
So here I am back home in London for a one month enforced China tax break. Apparently all foreigners need to leave China for 30 consecutive days every 5 years in order to avoid an increased tax liability. This is of course my second 5 year term.
It is quite nice being back for a whole month. It means everything isn’t one great big frantic panic to cram everything in to just a few days. I might even manage to tick off more than just a few things on my “to do” list. Well, that’s the plan anyway.
I’ll no doubt be writing a lot about the contrast between London and Shanghai over the next few weeks. There are lots of things I do miss about England but there are also things about England that drive me mad.
But I won’t start on a negative note, that wouldn’t be a good way to start my month long posts from England. So how about starting with one of the things I miss most about living in England : the traditional English breakfast, and specifically, British style sausages. For some reason they can’t be found in Shanghai, so I always go a bit crazy when I’m here and cook them almost everyday for breakfast. They’re great as part of a full English breakfast fry up (although I usually grill instead of fry) with bacon, eggs, toast, baked beans and mushrooms. They’re great too in a sandwich, hot or cold. They’re great on cocktail sticks with a bit of cheese, on pizza, in congee, fried with noodles. In fact they’re great with anything.
The photo above was my first English breakfast this time round, but it definitely won’t be my last!
