What did you have for breakfast?
« on: October 06, 2011, 06:56:40 pm »
We have threads for other meals but not for breakfast.

So I'll start:
I had eggs scrambled with sambar powder (mixture of spices for veg, like a spicy ratatouille) and celery. It was good but could have been better with more celery for taste and perhaps a third egg to fill me up.

What about you?

1/2 grapefruit, 2 rounds of toasted sunflower & linsed bread, mug of coffee, orange juice.

I have the same most mornings, but often have a croisant instead of toast.

If it is cold & frosty, I often have porridge instead of the above.
If it ain't broke, fix it 'til it is...

A glass of Tropicana Orange with bits.
A bowl of raw porridge oats with LOTS of raisins and milk.
A pint mug of 50/50 Instant/decaf gold roast coffee.

A sausage butty and cappucino at Stansted services. Neither were that nice.

Beans on toast (with Tabasco sauce on the beans and Marmite on the toast).

People have mentioned tea and coffee, which reminds I forgot to mention a mug of strong, black tea. It's the first thing I do as soon as I get up and I take it so much for granted now, I didn't think to mention it. In the words of Arthur Ransom, "the most important part of the most important meal of the day."

Orange juice, mussels and cockles*, barley porage with apricots and Agen prunes, bread and honey, tea.

*Fish or shellfish for Saturday breakfast being an old tradition where I come from.

Bran flakes, prunes and Bombay mix.  That should do the trick.

Friday: porridge with lots of raisins, and shreddies for the boy.

Today: fancied muesli but due to lack of liquid cow I had more eggs, this time with cumin seeds, garlic and capsicum.

Fish being traditionally left over from Friday night, maybe?

Perhaps, but one of my early memories is going down to the shore at sunrise with father and coming home with a bag of winkles, whelks and mussels for mother to cook.

That's interesting, must have meant some early mornings! Now I have to ask, where do you come from?

At the time I was living in Ulverston, about 200 yards from Morcambe Bay. Treading for flooks (flounders to most of the world) was a later pastime, walk about in shallowish water in either bare feet or canvas soled waders and when you feel a fish tickle the soles of your feet, reach down and grab it.
