Mmmmmm, doesn’t that look amazing? We were slightly hungry after our amazing Chinese food experience, so we stopped in at good ol’ Mickey-D’s for a quick snack. It was essentially the same, but without mustard. Apparently, English people don’t like mustard, so it doesn’t come automatically on the burgers. A cheeseburger without mustard is a strange thing.
This was my first trip to the famous Turf Tavern! The very place that Bill Clinton did not inhale in while in college. The Turf Tavern is a great little place, extremely hard to find, but really cool indeed. I learned from Robbie and Cara that “Yorkshire pudding” isn’t a pudding at all, it’s the savory pancake-like dough. The “pudding” was really soft and slightly chewy, amazing. I covered it in delicious gravy and dipped every bite in perfectly spicy horseradish sauce. To drink, I had an Old Rosey cider, something like 8% but still really tasty, unlike the “K” cider I bought the other day that was 8.6% and I was told it’s what tramps drink. It was a truly great meal, shared with great friends.
I had shepherd’s pie tonight at the college. It was okay, but not as good as the shepherd’s pie that my beautiful wife makes. At least the vegetables were cooked correctly tonight. The yogurt was good as ever. Kind of a lack-luster meal altogether though.
This stewed beef on rice was not so bad. It wasn’t great, but it wasn’t disgusting. There was a tomato based sauce with lots of veg. The pearl onions were very nice. I had yogurt with fruit in the corner for dessert. Their yogurt here tastes a lot like our organic yogurt in the states, having the same consistency as they do not pump it full of stabilizers and artificial thickeners. And it’s not filled with corn syrup, it’s actually pleasantly sour, it tastes like yogurt should taste.
