Meal #65: Lunch

Ham and hard-boiled egg sandwich with lettuce and tomato, Paris, France

This was our first lunch in Paris.  We popped into a small sandwich shop for a quick lunch.  My sandwich was on nice bread that was chewy on the inside and crunchy on the outside but sweeter than a baguette.  The ham was nice, and I liked the sliced hard-boiled eggs.  The vegetables were not the best, but overall, it was a decent sandwich for a quick lunch.

Prosciutto with goat cheese and arugula and olive oil, Paris, France
A somewhat disappointing sandwich.  All the ingredients sound delicious, but the bread was so big, it completely overwhelmed the delicate flavors.

Meal #3: Lunch

Sainsbury's grocery store, Oxford, UK

King prawn (shrimp) and rocket (arugula) sandwhich, apple juice to drink.  For a premade sandwhich coming out of a grocery store, this one was not half bad.  It was a kind of prawn salad like tuna salad, it had onions and celery, and mayonnaise.  Where we would say salad, they just call it a “prawn mayonnaise.”  Where in America can we get a premade grocery store sandwhich with shrimp and arugula on it?
