Mrs. Lovett’s meat pies (Kensington Palace, London)

During Kaitlyn’s and my trip to London, we spent an afternoon at Kensington Palace, where we happily stumbled across what appeared to be a re-creation of Mrs. Lovett’s Meat Shop, a la Sweeney Todd. For two die-hard fans of the Tim Burton adaptation (we do a really mean rendition of ‘God, That’s Good!’, in which Kaitlyn sings the part of Toby and I sing the part of Mrs. Lovett), this was the pleasantest of surprises.

I think a normal person would have taken photos all throughout the grounds, but….this is all I got for now. I’ll be closing out the London recap tomorrow!

Until then, I leave you with one of my favorite songs from the movie as well as another and another and we can’t forget about this one, can we?!

ah! Loved that movie and every time I listen to the music I realize something that makes it even wittier - the best kind of music, if you ask me! That Sondheim was a beast.
