It has been suggested that there might be enough of us here now to have our own little thread.

Sportfat was saying that she finds some of US foods that are mentioned are a bit confusing.

Let's see if we can keep this rolling.

We can start a UK JUDDD revolution!

Good idea for a thread

I'm a UK native and long time resident of the US (Boston).

Kissa, they don't eat as much lamb over here, but I'm seeing it more and more on menus and in stores. It's my son-in-law's favorite thing for me to cook for him when he visits! He's not such a big fan of my mint sauce though

I'm about to head over to the UK for a couple of weeks so will watch with interest for any suggestions for UK items to eat on DDs. (Already noted the ryvitas with raisins on another thread!).

No Easter Monday holiday here.........enjoy the day off if you have it!

Jan

We have lamb almost exclusively for Easter at my MILs. Other than that, only very rarely, or in ethnic dishes.

I'm a kiwi by birth but live here in the US. It's hard to find lamb at any of my local grocery stores. We buy our lamb frequently at a middle eastern grocery store.

Unfortunately, it's hard to come by and quite expensive where I live. For a while when I was growing up, my Dad raised sheep and we would have lamb chops - delicious! I guess I didn't know what a rare, wonderful thing I was having and wouldn't get to have again.

I do hope it grows in popularity over here. The only place I've seen it is Kroger. I read that 60% of all the lamb in this country is sold at Kroger. At my Kroger, the lamb comes to them pre-cut and packaged and they just put a price on it. So you get one lamb chop in a package, and it is priced quite high. I also read that lamb is at a historical high price in this country.

Maybe that will change over the years.

Enjoy your lamb!

I love lamb, but hardly ever cook it here because it's such a minority meat! And devilishly expensive compared to my memories of lamb in the UK. However, I did roast a leg of lamb yesterday and it was DIVINE. DH kept commenting on how good that smell was all over the house. I bet your lamb is as delish as ours was, Cindy!

Hello

Lamb is nice but I can't cook it very well. I do have lamb burgers in the freezer which are lovely! Lamb is expensive but not crazy expensive. It is tradition here to have it at Easter or if you were to have a big family meal my mum would cook lamb. Growing up my mom would make a stew with mutton & bacon which was nice but not the mutton that was the bones and not so nice cuts of lamb. Then at the end of the week if there was leftover meat mom would make a meat pie yum yum! I'm making myself hungry here

I'm on a DD today after being a bit of a pig over the weekend. I've decided to use shakes and soups on my DD to keep my calories low and get myself back on the wagon. My aim is to completely fast on my DD's I want to get as much off in the next 5 weeks as is possible.

I had a good DD today, a costa soya flat white at around 11am, and a 297 cal sandwich from Waitrose at around 5.30. then a nice glass of white wine during the interval at the theatre.

I love a Costa coffee, keeps me going for hours.

Wish we had Costa here!! Still not understanding some of the coffee places here!

Tiny little skinny flat white at some places, they claim 130 cals. Yesterday was in one of the few Starbucks in Australia and had the Grande Skinny Flat White - huge in comparison and it's something like 90 calories!!!

At least I can buy Shirataki Noodles in the supermarket!

85. The skinny is lower, but it doesn't satisfy me in the same way.

I found clotted cream here, but it wasn't refrigerated and I was afraid to get it. Think it would be okay? The packaging says it's best refrigerated and to use it within 5 days of opening.

I'd so love to try a cream tea.

Dawn, I would worry about that cream. What did they do to it to keep it fresh without refrigeration? Come visit me instead....

Oooh, Waitrose....and M&S Food Court.... ::drools::

You know what I miss? GOOD CHEESE. Good, nutty, tangy, smack you in the gob cheddar. There's a fantastic Taw Valley cheddar that M&S used to sell that I adored. I love the US, and all the amazing choices, but the cheese is really terrible!

Hello uk judders, thanks for starting this thread Kissa!
Great idea for us to share our food finds in a more relevant thread...

Today I bought some sainsburys light hummus, 100cal snack pots, perfect portion control and they don't have lots of sugar like some low fat hummus does.

Also love sainsburys prepared veg, I hate being in the kitchen for too long on Dds and it also makes the calorie counting much simpler! Today I got a 92 cal pack of diced swede, microwaved half the pack then sautéed with cooking spray and a bit of seasoning, such a good sub for fried potatoes!

Jan I will be in the West country while you are down there. I could PM you my number, would be so lovely to meet up?

Majella, where would we be without Costalot! I bought a Mocha from an unheard-of coffee shop today at Westfield (Stratford East). It was totally pointless, I drank less than half then shared it out between DD and her DH.

I love those mini packs of different flavoured hummus. Haven't checked the sugar counts lately as I eat everything these days, but will check out the Sainsbury's ones as that is my local.

I miss good cheddar too! Although I go to Holland regularly and stock up on the good Dutch cheeses, nothing beats a nice farmhouse mature cheddar!!!!

I buy my houmous in my local organic supermarket, and at 67 cals for a 25 gm portion it's pretty hefty in calories. It tastes great, even in small amounts, but I may have to resort to making my own again! (I make my own mayo too, so it shouldn't be a big job anyway)
If I come op with a low cal recipe, I'll post it here!

Thankfully we have good cheese here in Australia!!! In fact there's a place that makes cheese up the hill behind me (sounds really near - takes me about an hour or so). It's also full of wineries - I like that hill a lot!!! Okay it calls itself Mount - but it's a hill.

Oh yes, we have good wine too!!

I love JUDDD!!
