Yesterday I phoned my grandparents, like nearly every week.

The first question from my grandfather was: „now, after some weeks over there, tell me if they have good beer…“ (free translated from german). Because he is a real german guy, who loves beer. So, I answered: „Of course they have… they have Kronenbourg, Heineken, Carlsberg… and we drink Becks…“ (also free translated from german). It’s not because we only drink swiss or german beer, it’s more because the scottish beer doesn’t taste that good (in my opinion).

Today I went out to buy some stuff for this week. I liked to try the ALDI next door. And I found different things. Not to buy, but nice to post on my blog. For example this pack of a traditional scottish breakfast:

Just the next row I found something special… As a Apple-fan It really jumped in my eyes: mashed potatoes from M(a)cIntosh 😉

But back home I decided to cook something different. It is one of my favorite meals, when I visit my grandparents. So, I got the receipt from my grandmother. She will be proud, if she hear (or read) about it.

Just a swiss (lazy) sunday

On 25. September 2011, in Schottland, by Marc Iten

Hi there,

Today we had just a real swiss, lazy sunday. Or even I had such a lazy sunday. I woke up at 10am. Then we prepared a real swiss sunday-breakfast, with „Zopf“ (see the last posting), jam, ham, swiss cheese (the only one I found here), eggs and bacon. The rest of the day I were just in my room and played a bit on the computer.
In the evening, after Conrad and his GF came back from fort kinnaird, we ordered some pizzas. Firstly we tried it online on Olivia’s (Conrad’s GF) iPad, but it was not so easy. So Conrad took his phone and called Dominos.

And last but not least: now I‘ m eating real swiss

military chocolate.

That was my sunday. How about your’s? What did you the hole sunday?
