Must Take...
« on: July 24, 2013, 23:05:32 PM »
I have decided to start a Must Take to Turkey box. I am going to fill it with obscure
Items that I might not be able to live without.  I would appreciate any suggestions that you
Consider to be must haves. I have started with universal sink plugs : :)

We're in the UK at the moment.
Shopping has included gravy granules, salad cream, ginger nuts, custard creams, tikka spice, mixed herbs, fajita seasoning, Cadburys chocolate, cheddar, sausages, pâté, iPad cover, burglar alarm, iPad cables, sportswear, nail varnish remover pads, skin so soft spray, Kenco coffee, double choc mocha sachets, Cinzano and custard tarts and chicken pies for journey back.
Would take a Dyson if it fitted in my case.

If you have a big box.  A steam floor cleaner, they are expensive in Turkey.  A slow cooker.  We brought one over, bought it in Asda for £9.00.  A Turkish friend saw it and was amazed and asked us all about it. He had never seen one before, he loved it some much and thought his wife would really like one, we gave it to him. So, now we have to take another one over. 
Also, table mats if you like them, not much selection over in Fethiye.  A set of steak knives.  A universal grill pan handle for the oven.  We bought an oven and found out they don't supply handles. A few shower caps.

A decent food processor with as many attachments as possible, then you can make your own soups, pates, juices, cakes etc etc
