Meal #62: Breakfast

Ham and cheese croissant with hard-boiled egg , Paul and Kristien's B&B, Bruuge, Belgium
Our wonderful bed and breakfast hosts prepared an awesome breakfast for us!  There was a basket of various breads, butter, ham, cheese, hard-boiled eggs, tea, coffee, and fresh squeezed orange juice.  Charity and I both opted for the croissants which we made into sandwiches using liberal amounts of butter, ham, and cheese.  It was perfectly flaky and the ham, cheese, and butter were all high quality.  The hard-boiled eggs were perfectly cooked and tasted fresh from the farm.  The juice was excellent, and the tea and coffee were great as well.  A good way to start the day in Bruuge.

Meal #21: Lunch

Orzo salad, Pret, Oxford, UK

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.

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 #10: Breakfast

English breakfast, Dinning Hall, Oriel College, Oxford, UK

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.
