Food Glorious Food...UK and Icelandic style...

One of the great pleasures in traveling for me is the food.....  My latest trip to the UK and Iceland was no without further ado here is some photography of just a bit of the food and drink I enjoyed during my trip.(I didn't take pictures of everything!)

Just a cup of coffee on Icelandic air but I love the saying on the napkin!

Oh I do love my prawn and mayo sandwiches from Marks & Sparks - mind you they do have to be from Marks & Sparks!

Sausage "bap" with brown sauce in Glasgow - I had been walking  for a good hour before finding a cafe to have breakfast so this was very very welcome!!

Haggis, Neeps (Swedes/turnips) and Tatties (potatoes)  I enjoyed this dish in Glasgow at a pub that was once a church! 

Typical Scottish breakfast - only time I had the black pudding (ugh) and the breakfast  usually comes with beans and tomatoes but I am very picky when it comes to those.....with coffee/tea, juice, cereal and toast and marmalade/jam it is good fuel for the day.  Nice fresh mushrooms. (canned are sacrilege)
Ploughman's lunch (a pub favourite) in Fort Augustus -  branston pickle, cheese and bread - - we enjoyed the rest of the cheese with our wine that evening as there was just so much...

One of the many  Steak and Ale pies I had on the trip.  Yum! 
Oh this was a lovely meal in Fort steak, one chicken and one ham topped with mashed potatoes with leeks and turnips in the middle of the plate.  Delicious and oh so different. 

Best ice cream I've had in my life. (and I've had a lot!) Broadway Tower, Cotswolds

Cream tea:  scones with clotted cream and jam with tea of course!  Snowshill Manor in the Cotswolds 

Another steak and ale pie in Broadway, Cotswolds
Half a prawn baguette and half a tuna...Judi and I both wanted prawn but only enough for one sandwich so we decided to ask for Tuna and split it - at a pub in Rye

I love ordering pizzas in London's Italian restaurants but I do like this pizza with salad in the middle that is available from the Pizza Express chain in the UK.  Very tasty with less calories...

Do we have enough cheese?  Jacket (baked) potato with cheese and coleslaw on the side.  Delicious.  At a cafe near Marylebone station. 

Chocolate cupcake with orange flavoured frosting - oh yeah.  Camden Market, London

Cinnamon "elephant" cookie - Borough market, London

Lobster soup at the Seabaron restaurant in Reykjavik - oh my....

Lamb soup - national dish of Iceland.  Delish!

An Icelandic twist of Fish and Chips at Icelandic Fish and Chips in Reykjavik

Delicious traditional Icelandic cake...with a touch of cinnamon...very good.  

Typical Icelandic breakfast of toast with a a slice of cheese and marmalade.  Yes you put both on your toast and it is surprisingly good.   

Hope you enjoyed the pictures as much as I enjoyed demolishing all the food you've seen!!!
