English Food

 Ever since I came to live in London, England, I have fallen in love with some English food.

Full English breakfast is at the top of my list. It is a very big meal. I always start with a cup of orange juice. Then I have cornflakes with milk. As for the cooked part, my favourite is an egg fried or scrambled with bacon, sausage, baked beans, tomato and mushroom. A piece of toast with butter and marmalade follows. The meal ends with a nice cup of tea. On Saturdays and Sundays when I don't have to go to class, I often prepare and eat a full English breakfast at home. 

For lunch, my favourite is a sandwich with a cup of tea. "Sandwich" was invented in 1762 by John Montagu who was the Fourth Earl of Sandwich in England. One day as he was busy betting at the gaming table, he didn't want to take time out to eat. When his servant brought his food, he ordered him to serve the meat between slices of bread so that he could eat and play his bets at the same time. Sandwich is indeed a good choice for lunch particularly if you have had a full English breakfast in the morning.

In the evening, if I don't have time to cook at home, my quickest way to get a delicious dinner is to buy "fish and chips" from a take-away. The fish is always either cod or plaice deep-fried in batter. With a sprinkle of salt and a few drops of vinegar, it is a wonderful meal to me.
