Meal #46: Lunch

Chicken bacon club with sea salt crisps, Pret A Manger, Oxford, UK
My beautiful wife has arrived in Oxford!  From now on, my description will come first, and then Charity’s just below. 

For her first lunch in Oxford with me, I had to take Charity to Pret A Manger, where else?  I had the always amazing chicken bacon club, as previously described, it did not disappoint.  There were no especially good soups today, so I accompanied my club with a bag of sea salt crisps.  Everything was tasty and fresh as always. 

Smoked river trout sandwich with a nectarine and coffee, Pret A Manger, Oxford, UK

My first meal in Oxford! It was simple and lovely. The smoked English river Trout was mild and delicious, especially with the horseradish mayonnaise to brighten it up. The coffee was really good- I know it’s a strange combination, but I really needed some caffeine. The nectarine was sweet and sour perfection. Overall, a great first meal in Oxford!

Meal #37: Lunch

Simply lunch, Oriel College dining hall to-go, Oxford, UK

Another “delicious” bag lunch from Oriel College! Simply tuna sandwich, which was simply disgusting. The crisps were good since they started giving us “ready salted” instead of gross flavour powder. The Penguin Bar is never good, though some swear by it. I’d rather buy a lunch than take another Oriel sack lunch.

Meal #11: Lunch

Bag lunch, Oriel College, Oxford, UK

This is the bag lunch we were given to take on our all-day trip to Stratford-upon-Avon and Warwick.  The sandwiches varied greatly, but all the rest was identical.  My sandwich was sausage and mustard and mayo.  It was disgusting.  I ended up feeding a lot of it to a peacock that was wondering around.  But I ate the fruit and drank the juice.  The peacock got most of my crisps too, because they were disgusting as well.  After seeing someone else eating their Bounty candy bar, I didn’t have the guts to eat my own.  Thanks a lot Oriel College.

Meal #8: Lunch

Turkey and cranberry sandwich with crisps, EAT., Oxford, UK

This was my first trip to the famous EAT. restaurant that Rachel was obsessed with.  I don’t usually like deli style turkey, but this sandwhich was pretty good.  I think it was the cranberry sauce that made it work.  There was also plenty of rocket on there.  The crisps were good too, salt and vinegar crisps are always good.
