Awesome Hotdogs...

... the Wife and I drove down to Cleveland yesterday just for the hell of it... actually, that's not true.. we were on a mission to buy Cadbury's chocolates, but I like to think we just went for the hell of it...

... there is a deli in the downtown area... Mom and Pop type thing.. innocuously called The Gardener's Market... which is kinda funny in itself in that none of the stuff they sell is grown, produced, or remotely connected with a east Tennessee garden... it's all imported.... the proprietors aren't locals either... from Canada, I think... anyway, their wee shoppe is packed to the gunnels with British food... chocolate, rice, sauces, and teas... just like the stuff you'd find on the shelf of a Safeway or Sainsbury's.... I highly recommend it if you ever find yourself in Cleveland for lunch....

.... we make the journey down there every few months for the essentials.. for me, that is big jar of Branston Pickle... and if you don't know what Branston Pickle is, you simply have not lived... go forth and acquire some immediately.. that stuff completes the perfect cheese sandwich like nothing else on earth... but for the Wife, the trip is to fondle, squeeze, and purchase nearly everything else in the shop...

... indeed, the owner sure loves to see us come in the front door...

... damn... where was I going with this?... what's this all about?... crap.. I forgot where I was headed with the story about driving to Cleveland.. maybe I'll remember the rest of the story later... damn, I hate it when that happens... anyway, it's Wednesday and I'm off to shoot pool with the usual societal rejects... if anyone needs me, I'll be in the garage...

I just *hate* when that happens. When I walk into a room and have to stop and say "oh crap, now why am I here again?"

Anyway, I'll look forward to hearing the rest of the story later. :-) Happy pool shooting!

eric - i just scored a jar of branston when i went to atlantic city -- in some little country emporium dedicated to all things across the pond -- it was better than winning on the slots -- it's a rare thing indeed -- and one of my FAVORITE things -- it is cheddar's handmaiden and helpmate, and there is nothing like a good cheese ploughman's --
