Meals in Britain
A traditional English breakfast is a very big meal – sausages, bacon, eggs, tomatoes, mushrooms… But these days many people just have cereal with milk and sugar, or toast with marmalade, jam, or honey. Marmalade and jam are not the same! Marmalade is made from oranges and jam is made from other fruit.
The traditonal breakfast drink is tea, which people have with cold milk. For many people lunch is a quick meal. In cities there are a lot of cafes where people can choose the bread they want – brown, white or a roll – and then all kind of salad and meat or fish to go in the sandwich. School-children can have a hot meal at school.
´Tea´ means two things. It is a drink and a meal! Some people have afternoon tea, with sandwiches, cakes, and, of course, a cup of tea.
The evening meal is the main meal of the day for many people. They usually have it quite early, between 6.00 and 8.00, and often the whole family eats together.
On Saturdays a lot of people have a traditional lunch. They have roast meat, either beef, lamb, chicken, or pork, with potatoes or vegetables.
The British like food from other countries, too, especially Italian, French, Chinese, and Indian. Pеople often get take-away meals – you buy food at the restaurant and bring it home to eat. Eating in Britain is quite international!
