Fish Fingers and Custard

As I'm heading to Nashville with my cousin Amy for a few days next week, I asked Amanda to type a list of groceries into the notepad application of my iPhone so she wouldn't starve while I was away - or at least complain incessantly that there was nothing in the house to eat.  I figured the chances of me remembering to have my phone on me versus remembering to take a written list to the store were most definitely in the phone's favor.

Upon arriving at the local Big Y, acquiring a cart, and starting my way through the produce section I pulled out my iPhone and looked over Amanda's list:

  • Milk
  • Bread
  • Cereal
  • Hot dogs
  • Shredded cheese
  • Tomato soup
  • Frozen pizza
  • Mustard
  • Hot Pockets
  • Ravioli
  • Fish Fingers and Custard
"Fish fingers and custard??" That one made me smile as I'm sure Amanda knew that it would being that it's a Doctor Who reference that, unless you're a Whovian, you just aren't going to understand. If you'd like to understand (more or less) watch the video clip below:

Even though I looked high and low I couldn't find any custard (or even custard mix) in the store so I'm afraid she's stuck with fish sticks and vanilla pudding but hopefully that'll be close enough!


  1. For future reference you are seeking Bird's Custard

  2. ANd NO NO NO it is not Vanilla Pudding :-)

    One of these days I really gotta start watching Dr. Who. That clip was quite enjoyable! Though the idea of fishsticks and custard nearly made me barf.

  4. Who? What??? You've gotta be kidding!

    Have fun in Nashville. I know you'll record...some photos to share!

    Be careful. Big hugs, honey...

  5. Many will start demanding fish finges and custard.

  6. Beans ARE evil! Hahahaha!

    I am having the BEST time! I haven't even been near a computer. Unfortunately, I do have to work during the week. The weird thing is that I am having so much fun that I keep forgetting to take photos, but we have agreed to pool our photos.

    Have fun in Nashville!

  7. When I was a kid, one of the side dishes we sometimes had with our mac & cheese was fish sticks.

    What? Oh - I know that mac & cheese is what most would consider as the side dish to the fish sticks, but not for me!


Thanks for visiting!
