So that was lunch sorted out then... Served with tomato, pickled onions and Branston pickle.
This is a fairly typical English snack meal. The sort of thing you might get in a pub (Public House - i.e. bar - for those of you who are not familiar with this term), and therefore likely to be consumed with a pint of our delicious Bitter (beer).
Another favourite lunchtime meal is what we call a Ploughman's Lunch, which is basically bread and cheese (normally Cheddar and/or Stilton), usually served with pickled onions or red cabbage, and sweet pickle, as in my picture, although these days you often see a "Ploughman's" being served with things other than cheese, such as ham or sausage.

In the Winter-time though, nothing is as warming and as satisfying as a bowl of soup. Do you remember that tomato soup I showed you just before Christmas? Well, I'm proud of this picture, so I'm going to show it to you again!
Call it luck if you like, but I'm SO happy to have captured the swirl of steam rising from the soup in this picture. Couldn't it just be an advert for Campbell's?
