Yummy fish and chipsThe next day i searched for "tinapay" in the area where we're staying. As we habitually eating baguette for breakfast, ang lola ay naghanap ng baguette. I found some in the grocery but it looks not good so i didn't buy any. They even selling croissants, but i preferred eating the multi-grain loaves that we already had from last night bought by Claudebiko's son. Just because of curiosity, before heading home after the bread hunting, i entered into polish food store. Wala lang naghahanap pa din ng tinapay and guessing maybe i could get cheese too from the said store. I saw cheeses ( yeah mukhang cheese meron looking mozzarella cheese pa nga eh ) on the fresh section shelves. All polish on the packaging without any english translation so i didn't take one and decided not to take the risk. I just only bought 4 pieces assorted bread in a free service corner. Before i pick my choice, i asked the vendor first if the price is the one i saw on the tag, 4 pieces for 1 pound. He said yes. I also asked if its ok to mix my bread with the grain ones ( poppy and sesame ) he again say yes. Well, at the counter when paying the cashier told me that it's 0.35 each and i could only get 4 plain bread for a pound but well i insisted that i already asked somebody ( i think the manager of the store ) and confirmed the price. I'm happy with the bread i've got and i had a smile when i "sortie" the store :)
Yummy bread tartine with Lurpak butter. We had some left-over bread from breakfast that we also consumed for lunch. We paired it with salad and carbonara which i both prepared.
We must admit that during the tour we almost dine-out to fast food chains like Mcdo and KFC. We actually didn't had the chance to eat to the restaurant where Claudebiko's son's working. No need to eat out if the chef' is in the house. One night for our dinner the chef cooked stroganoff :)
I demande his recipe and i said to myself that im going to make this when we get home. I will try chicken stroganoff with pasta. Beef stroganoff also in on my next try list.
Heinz with Omellette and potato scones. It reminds me of my father ( while eating it ) who likes Hunts pork and beans. If he's only with us i guess mauubos naming dalawa yung 1 kilong beans na binili kong frigo pack.
One lunch, we had an invitation from a friend who live in North of London and guess what she had prepared for lunch. It's....
It was a great lunch! They also served a great wine to pair with our delicious meal ( will post a separate post of our visit here ). I obseved and mamahal ng wine duon pero ang daling buksan di na kelangan ng wine opener promise para lang syang soda drink na nasa botelya. No sweat inom kaagad. If it's not heavy to bring bottles of wine siguro nagdala ako ng sangkaterba.
Ang sarap kumain, i didn't know how much weight i put on again buti nalang wag ko nlang alamin sira ang aming timbangan. Well, ngayon nakauwi na kame back to our kitchen, back to luto and back to normal eating habits.
