did i see correctly that a euro is almost a dollar? if so the prices are cheap at mysupermarket.uk for most things

UK doesn't use the Euro. 1 GBP = $1.5.

I see we're branching out now so here's one from the UK where you can compare prices between chain supermarkets located there and then, if you like, compare them to stateside prices using the link posted above and then in turn to prices here.

What the bloody hell is that?

That's disgusting. No wonder I've never seen a British restaurant.

Something the cat brought in which one tends not to examine too closely.

Beef kidney is good food. Too damn many spoiled Americans will never know what they are missing.

I looked at those kidneys closely, and it looks like there is a reflection of a Christmas tree in there in both kidneys. See that? I take it it's a reflection of a Christmas tree in the supermarket. I assume there is an old English tradition to prepare kidneys for Christmas eve.

Agreed. I've introduced many an American to steak and kidney pie who have reveled in it once they've tasted it. Getting them to taste it is the hardest part but, once they do, they crave more. Organ meats are heavenly when properly cooked and awful when not.

I did see "Donkey Balls" on the menu in one of the restaurants in St John. Not sure if it was a joke or not.

Well, wanderer brought up donkey balls!
Aren't Rocky Mountain oysters a favorite in your neck of the woods?

I rather like bullfoot soup. I've had all kinds of different foods. Sometimes it's good to not know what it is before you taste it.
I'd never have tried tongue had I known what is was. It was pretty good.

Never saw donkey balls on a menu here or in STJ.
Maybe wanderer's mind is wandering.:@)

Nope, not wandering. Donkey balls dem were clearly on the menu. I wish I took a pic.

However, upon my online research, it turned out to be not what one might be thinking:

A steamed, light and fluffy delicious suet pudding with currants or raisins, usually served with golden custard.

Wasn't saying they did. I was referring to wander's post about seeing donkey balls on a menu.
