Meal #15: Lunch

Steak and Ale Cornish Pasty, Cornish Pasty window, Oxford, UK

This pasty was pretty awesome.  Steak and Ale are a killer combination.  There were also chunks of potatoes in there.  The pasty dough was crisp and buttery on the outside and soft and flaky on the inside, a perfect vessel for takeaway food.  To be fair though, I was so hungry I would’ve gladly eaten that pigeon and been as happy.

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?
