I felt like something a little lighter for lunch, so I picked up this orzo salad from Pret. It was pretty good, lots of orzo and rocket and lettuce with loads of kalamata olives and carrots and fire-roasted red peppers. The dressing was a simple vinaigrette. I washed it all down with a carbonated orange juice that claimed on the can to have “added no nasties, just juice and CO2.” It was a well good lunch for takeaway.
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.
This is not my first English breakfast here, but it is the first one I remembered to take a picture of. This is my breakfast everyday here at the college, (when I decide to wake up for it.) It’s usually the same choices, with only slight changes sometimes. I usually just go for the fried egg, the bacon, and the beans. The toast they bring around as it becomes available. I usually put the egg on the toast and then top it with a little beans. I just wish the breakfast sausages were better so that I could eat those everyday as well, but they are terrible – mostly filler I think. We also get orange juice, but only in tiny glasses and it takes forever for the workers to refill our pitchers.
