I’ve been away from blogging for a few days because there has been constant 80 degree weather and sunshine in England, so I didn’t waste one second of it. I have a tan now. The temperature is expected to be back in the 50s by the end of the week, which as far as I’ve ever been able to tell is the average summer temperature in England.
My mom’s been gone more than a week now, but I forgot to post about some of the fun things we did.
Despite the milk, my random craving for a cup of hot chai tea was too strong so I slurped one down.
Every time I have chai I love it so much that I’m inspired to become one of those hot tea drinking people.
I go to the store and buy a big box of tea, but of course I never drink any of it. I’m just not a tea drinker.
Coffee through and through. I’ll never be a real Brit.
I still have never completed my goal of going to Borough Market with a giant bag and filling it full of fresh vegetables for a late afternoon feast. Maybe this summer?
Speaking of summer, last summer Borough Market had tons of watermelons, and you know what one of my other life goals is? To make one of those giant vodka-filled watermelons. Like college kids do. I know I’m old, but I love watermelon, and this has always seemed like a super fun idea. Vodkamelon. The way forward.
Aren’t these the prettiest ‘shrooms you’ve ever seen?
I think this picture is actually from our random food tour of London a couple days before. Raclette cheese on new potatoes with little pickles. Pepper on top.
Surely Borough has to rank up there with the best food markets in the world?
