Some people say that British food is bland and tasteless. They know nothing! Nothing, I say!
YoungerSon's best friend used to say the favourite British dinner was fried lard pie with lard sauce. Well.... OK, maybe.
Just take a look at these delicacies. A feast for the eyes, and for the tummy too.
|A full English at the Bed and Breakfast.|
|Pub food.... just the thing after an energetic hike|
Coronation Chicken toasted sandwich. Add some crisps (translated to potato chips if you live in N America) and some salad and you have a lunch fit for a Queen.
|Warm scones and jam and cream, and a cuppa|
Need an afternoon snack? May I suggest stopping at the fancy tea rooms for an English Cream Tea, which includes home made strawberry jam and fresh cream, and don't forget lots of butter for the scones. And plenty of tea to wash it down.
|My mouth is watering just looking in the bakery window|
Feeling a bit peckish when you're out shopping? No problem. Sausage rolls, Chicken curry pasties, Chicken Ham and Leek pasties, Wiltshire pasties.... what a variety. I believe they can't be called Cornish pasties unless they are actually made in Cornwall.
|99? Oh yes!|
And when you've munched on your pasty, whatever kind it was, how about indulging in a 99? Soft ice cream in a cornet (that's a cone to N Americans) and a Cadbury's Flaky stuffed down the middle. Nothing could be better!
|Lunch time at the market square|
Suffolk ham, British eggs, chips and peas.... and the little container on the side is Brown Sauce. mmmmmm...
|Just like my mum used to make.|
I think I definitely have to go on a diet.
