A teaspoon of Marmite will add a nice rich flavour.

I've never even seen Marmite. I had to look it up to find out what it was!

Marmite

I'll order some and try it!

Don't you get Marmite where you live? It's fantastic on hot buttered toast! Just spread lightly, it's got a very strong flavour :)
You can also use Oxo, Bovril or Vegemite spread. They taste almost identical :)

They must not sell them in the stores I frequent. I've never seen any of them!

Think it's an Aussie thing. Men at Work had a song about vegimite sandwiches back in the day.

adding mild or medium salsa is a quick and simple way to lend immediate complexity to a vegetable dish. easy to build on in almost any direction.

These are products I've never seen outside of British novels. Certainly not in a Midwest small town grocery store. I'm sure you can buy them on-line. I'll have to ask my English friend what they are!

Oh, like you, we can get just about everything on-line. But I live in a small, although quite cosmopolitan, small town (3500). We can get some "fancy" stuff at our local grocery store. But I've travelled the USA by car more times than I can count, and believe me, there is a lot of the US that many, to include most Americans, will never see, understand, or "get". I've heard much of this country I love (and have lived in much of it) called "fly-over" states or "square" states, like we don't exist.

Yes, I know you were being facetious! But it hit a chord.

It was also half meant as a question, since I only mentioned it because that is the impression given to us. I've never been to America so I won't claim that I know much about it.
Thank you for giving me a better understanding of what your country is really like
Hope I didn't offend you, that was not my intention at all!
We just go by what we hear over the news and see on television programs.
P.S I love small towns, I live in one too. I don't buy anything online since I don't own a credit card so I just buy what I can get locally.
