Lunch dreams

As I am sitting around doing nothing on my lunch break it occurs to me that I could perhaps write a blog post. Considering that it's been a month since I last posted anything. So what will I write about?

Lunch.

Lunch time in Harrow (where my office is located) is somewhat of a dismal affair. The offerings are slim and depressing. We've got some chicken and chip shops that I wouldn't touch with a ten foot pole, a McDonalds, a Tesco Express (which just opened a month ago) and a smelly Budgens.

There is one good restaurant, a small Thai place that does a really good lunch for a fiver. As much as I love Thai, you can only eat so much of it.

I've selected this M&S photo montage to represent what I wish I was having for lunch. To be fair there is a M&S over in Harrow and I have taken the bus there a few times to spice things up. It's about a 25 min round trip journey. I know I will sound like an utter snob, but I just can't do the Tesco sandwiches.

The other option would be to plan ahead and just either make my own lunches or go to M&S and stock up for a few days at a time. That would be the sensible thing to do, but then what would I have to complain about?

I am also not the kind of person who likes to spend her valuable time shopping for lunches after work. Once I get off the train I want to just get home. I know it's going to sound incredibly lazy, because there is a Waitrose right next to the overground station in Westfield. I could pop in there, but I have to be in the mood to be shoved around by all the other after work shoppers.

Oh well, for now it's lunch in Harrow......

  1. No matter how long I've been in England, those sandwiches in the triangle containers scream "gas station" and have no appeal. But other M&S food? Divine.

  2. That's so funny. I know exactly what you mean. I still think that when I see sandwiches from Tesco. I have yet to eat one from there. My husband finds this to be extremely snobby, but I don't care.

    I like the triangle from M&S they are so yummy :)

  4. The triangles from M & S are a favorite memory of mine. Grabbing a sandwich and sitting by the River Ouse in Bedford at lunch time.

  5. I guess Harrow was never going to be a gastronomic mecca...
