Dern... No PPPB... No cornbread...No crayfish....No Grits... I never realized Britain was so deprived of all the good stuff. We are definately going to have to make up a BIG care package for you. :nod: :santa: Z
One thing I wished we did get here is CORNBREAD, I really like it, and I can't even get the ingredients to make it, my cousin sent me a few recipes, I have even looked on the internet to see if I could order the dry mix packets, but they wont ship them here. I bought some grits home with me when I was out last year, I found out we do have crayfish, called by another name but I don't like it.
The crayfish, also known as the crawfish, owes its name to a misunderstanding. The actual source of the word may be the Old High German word krebiz, "edible crustacean," or a word related to it. From this Germanic source came Old French crevice, which when taken into English became crevise (first recorded in a document written in 1311-1312). In Old French and Middle English these words designated the crayfish. People began to pronounce and spell the last part of this word as if it were fish, the first fish spelling being recorded in 1555. Because of a variation in Anglo-Norman pronunciation, two forms of the word have come down to Modern English: crayfish and crawfish.
In South Louisiana they are also known as mudbugs or crawdads. :lol: :lol: Z
