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 #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.

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?
