Today my flatmates, Beth and Jackie, and I woke up early to start the day off right with an authentic English breakfast. This was my first experience with an "English Breakfast" but was pleasantly surprised at how good
|Vegetarian English Breakfast|
I originally decided that I was only going to have eggs, toast, and mushrooms which would be the vegetarian style "English Breakfast" without the beans. However, when Happy/Smiley came over to take our order he gave us all a hard time about not ordering the beans..."Americans, you never order the beans. Come on, you need fiber with breakfast"...so I decided to give it a try and ended up enjoying the entire breakfast (including the beans) immensely.
After breakfast we were supposed to go on a walking tour around Bloomsbury, where our flat is, but our guide had the wrong date so we ended up having the afternoon to ourselves. And even though it was raining and cold a group of us decided to attend Afternoon Tea. This continued my day of eating traditional English meals!

I do believe that Afternoon Tea has been one of my favorite activities do far...why dont we have this in America? I think I will bring this tradition home with me when I leave London. Let me know if you want to join me for a cuppa!
