I think it’s about time I start this back up again. Today’s lunch: veggies and tortilla chips. With hummus. Yum.

Currently missing the following places:
-The Bite Market
-Lazy Dog Cafe
-The Flying Apron
-The Filling Station
-P.F. Chang’s (GF Chinese food)
-Olive Garden (GF menu)
-Any coffee shop that will make me a soy latte for less than $4
In other words…currently missing Chapman regulars and having food options.
We wanted to eat out one night in Cannes, but we couldn’t afford anything at all. So we ended up at McDonald’s (McDo’s here). We were curious to try it. The menu is different, but mostly just in areas like the desserts and drinks.
I got a happy meal with chicken nuggets, french fries, fruit, and a Sprite. It was 4 euro (about $5.5).
I am disappointed to report that it tasted exactly the same as it does in America.
A “bio” organic food-store with gluten-free products, about 13 minutes away from where I’m living. It reminds me a lot of The Bite Market, just with less options for gluten-free. I went there today and got gluten-free bread (actually really tasty!), corn flakes for breakfast, soy milk, and GFV chocolate chip cookies! So happy I finally found a place that I can get some food.

On our second night in London, we wanted a small dinner that was cheap. So we went into a chain store called Pret A Manger. (Funny, that’s it’s French but we were in London.) It has ready to eat, natural dinners. For about 8 euro, I got this salad with smoked salmon and shrimp, grapes, and ginger beer (very ginger-y ginger ale). It was delicious!
Fish and chips from a pub in London! It was my goal to eat fish and chips while in London. Mission accomplished.
It was served with a side of mint mushed peas. Which were DISGUSTING. It just tasted overwhelmingly like mint. And everything it touched tasted like mint!
But the fish and chips were quite good. They literally gave us a whole fish!
