britishly

i have this friend named peter. not peter pevensie, in which case he would be my husband, not my friend. but, coincidentally, both peter's are british. i don't get very much chance to talk to a british person, so last night i pounced on the opportunity. and as a result, i know all of his favorite british foods to eat. which is lovely, because i'm going to convince my parents to buy them now and Lord knows i need an advocate.

breakfast: English-style pancakes. apparently, they're like crepes, and he squeezes lemon juice onto them and sprinkles them with sugar, then rolls them up. interesting.

lunch: a chicken sandwich. this part, i must say, seems very American.

dinner: roast beef, yorkshire pudding, carrot + broccoli, bisto gravy. if that's not British then i'm a time lord from the planet gallifrey.

dessert: English custard, which is more creamy and gooey like banana pudding, English smarties {candy}, rhubarb + blackberry crumble. i didn't know rhubarbs existed until today. but whatever the case, everything looks delicious.

so, this is what happens when you decide to talk to a person who says "pea-u-mas" instead of "pumas", and who thinks that football is sophisticated. i'm not exactly sure which football he's talking about. however, today seemed like the sort of day to write about something completely and utterly broken from the natural chain of events, no? besides, it's tuesday. and d'artangnan is always there on tuesdays.

so, -kiss kiss kiss, quater quell must die-

{pea ess: and president snow. i don't like him either.}

  9. Awesome! My sister's in Britain at the moment!!! I'll have to tell her to try these things ;) that's so great, our vicor has a British accent, but sadly he leaves this summer. He's delightful, and the way he says his son's name (maaaartin) makes me swoon every time.
    Xoxo,
    Ellie

  10. Sadly, President Snow is being played by Donald Sutherland... one of my favorite actors. I hope he can pull off that villain-ish thing well.

    Wonderful post! I love England. ♥

  11. THIS IS PERFECT.

    English custard? Totally English.
    Yorkshire puddings? TOTALLY.

    How did you know?

    Oh my, I'm aching for you to come to my house. I'll teach you so much about England, and we'll share stories and memories... oh. Just come. Now. Please.

  18. i have english cousins and it's helarious staying at their house in england...the way they talk, how they act AND what they eat! i loved your detailed post on english meals...it reminded a lot of my holiday there...especially their house! lovely photos too : )
    and the one about having lemon juice and sugar on a crepe, if that's different to you that's very interesting as in my household having lemon and sugar on a crepe is what we use.

  19. If Peeta dies (I haven't finished the 2nd book yet) I will kill the author....you know, in my mind... Because doing it that way isn't illegal :)

  20. This was great! I love meeting british people! Actually, at our christmas eve service, we have about 12 different people picked out to read passages and this one guy was BRITISH and he had the most legit accent ever. I was freaking out so much that I can't even remember what he said. :)

  21. How does one have a giveaway? If anyone could help me with this, that would be extremely helpful! I plan on doing a giveaway soon.

  22. Unfortunately, I've never met anyone that's British (enter bucket of tears HERE), but by everybody else's descriptions, I assume that they sound like amazing people. Literally.
    Also, these foods sound really delicious, especially the English-style pancakes.

  23. 'English' pancakes are the best. Every Pancake Day my mum makes them after dinner, and we eat them with so much lemon juice that my mouth goes all scrunched up with the sourness.
    Also, Yorkshire puddings are my life. I love them, along with roast potatoes and peas. The meat part of a Sunday roast, is just a vehicle for yorkshires.
    And rhubarb is delicious. Try it, Jocee!

  24. Yorkshire pudding is my life. Seriously. You have not lived until you've tasted it (either the homemade kind, or the frozen kind from Azda).

sometimes i do not understand why you guys like me so much, but the fact that you do (and that you keep coming around) makes me happier than you can even imagine.
