Hi jade...check out our "For those that would like to lose some weight" thread and join Ori and me...and other's with a like mind.

I love a continental breakfast...my fav if I'm in Alicante is Toast, slice of cheese on top then sliced tom sprinkled with salt and pepper and drizzled with the oil and vinegar mix they have..yum!

Welcome by the way!

Hiya I like the idea of combining a high fat dutch and french breakfast, as I hate cereal.... so sometimes i eat at 1100 a BRUNCH, of Gouda cheese slices, with half a baby tomato, also a greasy french croisant, with smearings of jam, or a cheese scone if Im out shopping which I share with the other half,I am ovrweight, so next year will be eating less!Also prices in shops going up, so i may go vegetarian.and just eat vegetables.

Ha ha - I never expected to have anything to do with kids myself, but then settled down with someone who had some already from a previous marriage - love them to bits, but always content to way goodbye to them at the end of a weekend :-)

Uggle buggle. I always hated sugary cereals. Breakfast cereals in a box are low grade grains anyway. Where I grew up kids would eat them by the handful as they watched TV, can you imagine? Between the screaming sirens on TV and the screaming kids... I always preferred an omelette or porridge. Or Cream of Wheat or Rice. Which is faster to make than porridge, too. The only cereal my sister and I made a brief exception for came out in the 70s and it was called "Freakies"! It was the name more than anything.

I plan on never being daft enough to have kids, so it shouldn't be difficult to not give them Lucky Charms.

Dont bother - its the sort of breakfast cereal you wouldn't give to your kids, unless you knew for certain that the moment they finished eating you could hand them over to someone else to look after - all sugar and artifical additives.

A shop near to me sells Lucky Charms and they sell like anything. Not tried them myself, though.

Hey Ori - I had Lucky Charms for breakfast today. First and last time - my better half can have the rest of the box and relive a lost youth - i was not impressed.

For breakfast?!!.....Ohhh, what the Hell?! - I would eat it anytime! ;o>

Mmmmm...........Brisket with mustard sauce.......drool...

Ah...falda! This is about the only time of year you can find it. I'll ask my Mom and Pop shop how much they want for one. You can special-order a rolled one with harboiled eggs etc in the middle, which I think is yuk, but maybe the plain falda would be cheaper. "Pecho de ternera" is a northern thing.

People can be so narow minded Charlie. So they don't like fruit, but the garden birds love cherries. We had two cherry trees in our garden where I grew up, one sour the other sweet. We rarely got any as the birds always gor to them first.

Totally lush Ori...and I'm not really a red meat eater...but that...mmmmm! Did you know about Nach Waman...he opened a shop for just cookbooks in New York and it's a bit of a cult...Bit like our "Books for cooks" in Notting Hill...now there's a shop! They have a test kitchen too and cook from books to see what the customers think, great place. all the good cooks have worked in that little shop over the years...even our dear Clarrisa dickson-Wright. They have printed a few of the best in books..
Favourite Recipes from 'Books for Cooks' Books 1, 2 & 3

That's the shop on the cover...goes back quite a bit so there is room to move...love it!

I wish we could get brisket here...they cut cows up differently. If we lived up North maybe I could. Sniff!

Had brunch today as off shopping..Home made rosemary and seasalt roll..( my new fav! ) with griddled brisket and mustard...so yummy!
You must try that Brisket recipe...it is seriously good! It tastes even better the next day and freezes a dream. like best staek. You can have it hot or cold..As it is sliced during the cooking every bit gets the flavour hit.

Google or what ever is your "bag" Nach Waxman's Brisket recipe....honestly, give it a go!

Busted, Pixie! LOL
I have "mystery cheese" this week that Lidl was selling. I call it "mystery cheese" because it's labelled as "Scottish Coloured Cheddar" (what? It's very pale) and on the front of the packet it says it comes from the Lockerbie Creamery, situated in the Valley of Something or Other, while on the back of the packet it says it was made in a creamery...on the Isle of Man?

Charlie, that is painful and horrible. Then in a year or so she will move house and the future owner will never know what they've lost!

Actually that sandwich is standard here in some places. They call it a Mixed Sanwich (aka Croque Monsieur if you speak French).

Mine either, one of my friends has just chopped up a cherry tree that was in her garden and fruited loads as 'they don't like fruit' seriously?

2 new breakfasts this week! First up from Hugh's Three Good Things is soft boiled egg with mashed anchovies on toast. Absolutely fantastic, so deeply savoury.
Second up is a grown up version of a sarnie from my student days. Make sandwich of gruyere and Parma ham. Butter outer side of bread and fry each side till crispy and cheese melty. Little salt and devoured! Not one for the health conscious I admit, but yummy on a grotty morn like today!! Just watch your leftovers! My two year old pinched the rest of the pack of prosciutto and scoffed it in 30 seconds!!
