Sigh. No HP sauce in GF this morning

After all, who wants to eat the tomato filth with an honest British breakfast.

My morning has been improved by the sight of a man waking around wearing jeans and the PJ top from First. He has no idea how funny he looks.

HP sauce was the way that most Brits learnt French!

Cette sauce de haute qualite est un melange..... (I think).

At my desk now I am eating a fried egg and bacon sandwich with tomato sauce. None of that nasty chemical tasting brown goo for me.

What's so funny about a man in jeans and a baggy t-shirt?

And yes I am in an argumentative mood today so bite me!

Sorry you morning has started off badly with no HP sauce, mark you cannot stand tomato sauce, so I would be the same WHERE IS MYBROWN SAUCE.
Glad you are having a chuckle with the man in his jeans and PJ top, perhaps he is trying to draw attention to himself, DYKWIA wearing my F PJ's

Such a hard life...

I don't know how you do it. If I don't get my HP sauce I'm a wreck for weeks

I really can't get my head around ketchup with breakfast it always has to be brown sauce (I prefer Crosse & Blackwell but HP works too). I have never understood why BA do not have mini sachets of brown sauce on board. I have actually started taking my own to be used to liven up otherwise unappetising bacon rolls.

I was going to suggest stocking up on little sachets - you'll probably find some in the condiment station in Wetherspoons.

It will probably be confiscated by US customs/security as a noxious substance! After all if they ban haggis where will it end......

On a similar subject, who remembers when we used to get a choice of mustard in CW? When I asked for English on my last flight I was told "we only carry French sir". On BA? I wonder if AF only carries English?

I think its disgusting that BA are out of HP sauce. You'd have thought it would have been the first thing on the their shopping list.

Its a divorceable offense in our house if I run out of HP Sauce.

(ditto applies to Heniz Beans, Shipmans beef spread and warburtons white thick slice)

You need to try the Branston Baked beans. thanks to a supermarket offer I have found them again and I think are much better.
