a better wednesday

i went to london today…it was a mixed bag of really good stuff where my opinion was needed and a bunch of cringe-worthy moments.

one of the best things was that i saw the junior IT lady, who happens to be black on the stairs and asked if my boss had replied to her email asking for his decision about 3 things….she hadn’t and i explained that it was because he was working on the unit and i would be happy to make sure he responds tomorrow. we all discussed it at the afternoon meeting, without my boss, and the IT woman passed me a note. it said “hi tracy, i still want to have JB’s feedback”. i smiled and nodded…

i guess i just have to learn to make my own relationships and alliances…maybe it paid off that i always thank this IT lady for all her hard work.

the highlight of my trips to london are now my choice of sandwich…i have a current craving for pret manger

The New Yorker Bloomer

A classic recipe (stolen from our stateside friends) of salt beef, gherkins, mustard mayo and leaf spinach on our 7-grain bloomer bread (we counted!).

salt beef=corned beef….the best part?? pickles on the sandwich!! love pickles on my sandwiches….just remembered how you always get a pickle on your plate in the US…

today they were all out of the new yorker (a testament to its popularity i think) so i tried something equally adventerous…

Slim Pret - Italian Proscuitto Artisan Baguette

Prosciutto, Italian Matured Cheese, Tomatoes, Mayo, Whole-Leaf Basil

didn’t like the mayo so much but the rest was yummy!

i’m going again friday anybody see something from the menu they’s like me to taste test???

  1. The sandwich you did have sounds pretty good to me! So, pickles, I’m afraid of pickles on sandwiches in this country because I expect to get dill…and usually end up with Branston!! lol

    So glad to hear today was a better day.

  2. try the beech smoked BLT and the falafel for me cuz they sound tasty…and then order a jalepeno wrap and take a mental picture of their face when you pronounce it correctly…..LOL

  3. Do they sell bean sandwiches here? I bet they would fly off of the shelves. Can that be any worse than cheese and onion or (gulp) prawn. My mouth waters thinking of it…and not in a good way.
