Toast & butter, followed by toast & butter. Then followed by moar toast & butter. And tea. Followed by toast & butter.  Sometimes I just feel like toast & butter, y'know?

And tea.
I've dusted all those old bottles and set them up straight.

I am a man of routine in that I have eggs for breakfast just about every day of the month although not when I am about to have my "Talent Talk" (I sh*t you not) with my line manager when I tend to have porridge....it would take too long to explain why! However, last evening CBH was looking for something in the food cupboard when she came across a box of weetabix. "Oh" she said: "you haven't opened these yet." I reply confirmed that I would have them for breakfast this morning.

Come this morning and being a man of my word, I opened the box and placed two in a bowl with a banana and some milk and noshed away. "Quite nice" I thought: "but not as nice as a fried egg sandwich."

Anyway, closing up the box up I noticed the sale by date..... May 2018  ;D

If I am not around later, you'll know why, although I expect an unopened box kept in a dry place will last for years....well at least I hope so!

How would Weetabix go off? Mould is the most obvious way and you'd have noticed that. It might have absorbed a bit of atmospheric moisture so not be at peek tastiness (matter of opinion) but that's all. A Someone Who Knows will be along shortly.
At some point in the ride, you might find yourself in Osaka with Spanish speakers where you had expected Edinburgh talking Greek. This does not mean you are lost, or even off route.

Boy is eating breakfast right now. Well, it's Saturday and he gets up early Monday to Friday so I guess that's okay. He's eating an open sandwich of chorizo with onion and garlic sauce.

I would not expect old Weetabix to be seriously 'off' after a couple of years, though they may have 'stale' taste.

CBH has just called my breakfast this morning: "Gross."

I see nothing wrong with using the leftover lentil curry with spinach she made for our tea last night as the base for an omelette this AM..... with some blue cheese melted onto its top.

Lovely  ;D :o

Sounds delish!

For myself I had a double smooth peanut butter sandwich and 2 village hall cups of rosy lea, courtesy of Paul, and some Lidl stroopwaffel as I waited for the worst of the rain to piss off.

At the station I had an m and s BLT, a red coke, and a small tin of IPA because I play by my own rules. The beer went straight to my legs but I've just shuffled back home and am running a bath.

I met with The Aussie this morning in Greenwich Market to afford her the opportunity to give me a gift. A book called Salad Love, which is so up my street, both in terms of food preparation and consumption, that she could not have been more spot-on, as gifts go. :thumbsup:
Stopped by Arlo & Mo in Crofton Park on my way home and as, unusually, there was an unoccupied table, I scored some scrambled egg and chorizo on sourdough.
Nom, nom, nom.

I had a cheese scone for breakfast from the Maw's Craft Cente, after a lovely walk in Ironbridge :-)

I didn't know that "gross" meant "tasty, nutritious and efficient".  ;D

Today's breakfast was also made from yesterdays night tea left again...this time it was the breakfast of kings.... Bubble and Squeak with a couple of poached eggs.

And most enjoyable it was too!

I can be certain that I won't be frying tonights tea for breakfast tomorrow..... salad with cheese and a french stick.

Why not? You could make it into fried cheese and croutons!

I nearly had an earwig for breakfast!

I used my inhaler as usual, only to get a mouthful of Dermaptera. Sneaky thing must have crawled in overnight. Luckily, I didn't actually inhale it fully. Spat it out and put it outside.

In a few years' time I'll probably be eating them by the bowlful...

I'm pretty sure I've read that earwigs contain some sort of noxious chemical, presumably against this very eventuality. But then, so do ants, and some species of those are surprisingly edible, while others really aren't, as I remember from various Indian kitchen infestations.

Licorice tea - I am feeling exceedingly nauseous as a result of the treatment.  I am craving ready salted crisps so might go for a walk to the shop and see if they have any.

2 eggs scrambled with butter, a solitary large mushroom & some shredded ham.  A tomato as the salad course.
