Porridge - made with just oatmeal and water and a little salt, nothing sweet. Eaten with plenty of cream - again, NOTHING sweet to ruin it.
I'm no puritan - I like sweet things that are supposed to be sweet, but porridge isn't one of them.

As always - porridge made with oats and skimmed milk, over a banana and a small handful of sultanas. Before I was diabetic there would have been a dessert-spoonful of Lyle's Golden Syrup in there too, but not nowadays, too much sugar.

And a large mug of tea - skimmed milk, no sugar.

For me, today, the monthly indulgence in an omelet with home fries and toast-- fullsize western with cheese added-- real cheese-- and thick WHITE bread toast with BUTTER and JAM. (NONE of these are on the regular everyday food program, anymore.)

It was divided in half, to have some later-- after the snow-plowing for the month ALSO is done, for which I have a low-cal lo-fat crockpot going with 'maters and beans. Later to add: basmasti and tofu, which is all Greek-spiced and sweetened with Splenda.

:) I like sardines. I also like smoked salmon, especially the heat smoked type. There are few fish that I don't like, or would not consider eating for breakfast.

The canned sardines were "in spring water" not in "olive oil", not that there is anyhing wrong with olive oil. I just like the young herring taste better, versus the overpowering olive oil taste.

Two days ago I fried up the meat from two lobsters, in butter. I made a sandwitch with mao. Frying the lobster created an entirely different flavour. A few weeks ago, I made a clam chowder for breakfast...it was very good.

Coffee.

Eventually.

With canned milk. Because I kept forgetting to buy half-and-half.

Eventually, because I also kept forgetting to buy coffee beans.

Have a stash of stale Folger's ground coffee bought at the local convenience store sometime or other when I realized I was out of coffee at 11:00 pm. Had been making do with it for a couple of days. This morning, I poured water into the coffee maker, pulled out the basket to add the Folger's, opened the lid on the coffee grinder and scooped the ground coffee into there, slipped the empty coffee basket back over the pot, and made myself a full pot of hot water.

Being as how I also kept forgetting to buy dish soap, once I finally succeeded in making a pot of stale coffee, I realized there was not a clean coffee cup in the house. Good thing I have heavy, thick-walled glasses.

Rough morning.

Weetbix - the genuine stuff from Oz which I sent over here. The box is nearly empty, so soon I'll have to start having Weetabix, which is the UK's imitation one - not much different in taste, but not quite as good - naturally!

Followed that with a cup of tea and a nice piece of raisin toast with lots of butter. Yum!

The tea also comes from Oz, and we're fast running out of that. There is a chain of tea places there called T2. They have a huge range of interesting teas. We usually drink decaffeinated, and we discovered one there which is called Daintree tea. It is naturally low in caffeine - actually lower than your normal decaffeinated tea, and has a lovely flavour. We make a pot of that first thing every morning. There's no equivalent here that I've found, so I suppose I'll have to get my son or daughter or someone in Sydney to send us some more - or wait till we visit in 2112.

One quick favorite is to take a slice of bread, cut out the middle (a knife, or you can use those fried egg container shapes), insert an egg, and fry in a pan. This can also be done in the microwave if wanted - you just have to modify the cooking technique slightly to adjust to the microwave.

I like to use those 2 plate sandwich toasters, so you can also toast the cutout. You can also drop this on top of the egg in the hole.

A recent modification is to place a second slice of bread and place some cheese on it, then slide the egged bread piece when solid on top, to glue it together.

You can also add things like thin tomato slices, or spreading some other flavoring, before sprinkling the shredded cheese, or adding sliced cheese.

I had a listen to Hal an Tow, and they were pleasant enough on the clips that I listened to, but I'd have to hear a lot more to pass comment.

Now I do know, and have opinions on, what I have for breakfast.

Be assured, Hal an Tow are amazing. The videos do NOT do them justice. Just read Kendall's posts. When he says they are good, they are GOOD. The lad knows a thing or two about music.

I even heard someone say Bernie is the best guitarist he ever saw.

WRT Kendal's point:

Some threads you read, follow the link and take in the message. The Hal An Tow thread is one of those: I followed the link to YouTube and watched several of the videos; I will think about what I heard, but have nothing to say because I did not know the musicians.

Other threads you glance at and post to, then move on -- easy peasy. A whole different kind of interaction, much more casual and, it must be admitted, usually much less significant.

Sunday breakfast is always good. Today we had a nice cheese omelette with green onions, croissants from the French bakery on Murray Street, and three espressos each.

Strangest meal of the day. You must eat your corn flakes, your porridge, your toast, your bran and so on. I eat what I want. Most of the time it is bacon and eggs or Newfoundland steak, give me a can of beans and throw in a few hot dogs. But my favorite is a good bowl of stew, or barley soup. Trout is always a favorite when one can buy it or catch one. If I was back home (the maritimes.) I would have a clam omelet. I know, I know a lot of what i eat is not good for me but I like breakfast the way I want it and not by who says what I should eat. Porridge is probably one of the best things for you. Personally I can't look at the stuff. I had it 7 days a week when there was nothing else and that is probably the reason. But if you like it, than why not eat it for lunch or supper. Have you ever heard of anyone doing so? If I like my stew in the morning than why not have it. When my wife rolls her eyes at my breakfast plate of goodies, I just shrug my shoulders with a smile.

Jewish French Toast
Break eggs into a small bowl. Stir in enough milk to make the mixture smooth.
Brown in a little olive oil & butter a chopped small onion. Add a sliced mushroom or two. Add something savory (such as sliced salami or kipper).
Break a matzoh in coarse pieces into the egg-milk mixture. Pour it over the ingredients in the frying pan. Cover with a plate. When the plate gets too hot to touch, remove it, discard the condensed water on it, cut the contents of the pan in quarters with a spatula, and turn them over. Season with salt & pepper; that takes enough time to finish the other side. Serve on the heated plate.

Today we had porridge with brown sugar and creamy milk. Yum!

Rob said his mother always cooked it with milk, and I always just cooked it with water (and a pinch of salt) and added the milk when eating it. So we've reached a compromise - cooked it with half milk and half water. BTW I think the pinch of salt is very important for the flavour.

When I was in Oz, I sometimes used to have it with soy milk, brown sugar and LSA (ground mixed linseed sunflower and almond) and it was really yummy. I'm not a great lover of soy milk, but it does go well with porridge.

As for having breakfast food at other times of the day - I've often been known to have weetbix for a bedtime snack - very satisfying.

And for the person who suggested kittens - raw or cooked - I quote my friend Rhymin' Simon here - "I like kittens, but I couldn't eat a whole one!"

Well, this is mundane to me but looking at what you all eat, hey! Maybe it's exotic. 3 eggs (brown, free-range) soft scrambled, one medium brown Russet potato from Idaho hashed and well browned on both sides, Potter's Hot Sausage from Oklahoma, 3 slices of soft white bread, toasted and slathered with butter, strawberry perserves, piping hot dark French roast Italian 100% Arabica coffee (Peerless). And I know what many of you are thinking right now but you'd be wrong. Maybe once a week if I'm lucky.

You shouldn't drink Everclear with corn flakes. It might go with Fruit Loops, but corn flakes should be paired with a nice bourbon, oat meal with a good breakfast single malt would be very Scottish, and rum goes with well with Cocoa Puffs.

I've been pretty healthy with all the grainy cereal and apples, but this morning, I got to the potato chips first, and then had a cheese omelet for dinner. I guess it was a backwards sort of day. Must go back to the Red River tomorrow.

My dad used to ask me if i wanted a high poured or a low poured cup of tea and I thought he was joking but it did taste better. Unfortunately not many people use teapots these days.

Talking of rituals with toast I leave the top crusted half until last and it has to be buttered up to the edge and if I have jam or marmalade it can only be spread to just a bit below the buttered crust. Strange but true.

Not strange at all, Patsy, I always eat the top crust last, with plenty of butter right up to the edge. And it's always real butter.
And I always make tea in a teapot.
I was once astonished to watch someone making tea for six people in the kitchen attached to a hall (while we were setting up for a dance). He lined up six mugs and, ignoring the large teapot on the shelf, put a teabag in every cup.

Today we had some rather nice kippers, with buttered wholemeal toast on the side, followed by more toast and marmalade - but not just any marmalade. We found a lovely one while we were living in Aberdeen and brought down a couple of jars with us. Unfortunately we haven't been able to find marmalade anywhere near as tasty down here in Somerset, although it probably does exist somewhere. This morning I scraped the last bit out of the jar :(

Our tea is also special. It is one that we sent over from Oz, from a chain of tea places there called T2. They have a loose leaf tea called Daintree Tea, which has the interesting property of being naturally so low in caffeine, that it is lower than decaffeinated tea. It also has a particularly good flavour. Unfortunately we are coming to the end of that too :( So it will soon be back to Tetley decaffeinated teabags unless we can find something else. So far we haven't found any decaffeinated loose tea here, which is a shame because we do prefer loose tea made in a teapot.

Seems like a lot of the stuff we brought over or sent is running out now. I'm down to the last 4 Weetbix too (2 more breakfasts), and then it will be back to Weetabix, which although similar, is not as good IMO.

JennyO, now is the time to make marmalade.
Put 3lb or 1 1/2 kilos of Seville oranges (about 15 fair-size ones) and a lemon or two in a large pan, cover with water and bring to the boil and then simmer for ages, until well softened. Allow to cool, and remove the fruit from the liquid. Cut the fruit in half, and put the pips in a separate small saucepan (there will be far more than in dessert oranges). Put the pulp back in the cooking liquid, then cut the soft peel into thin slices and add those as well. Meanwhile, cover the pips with water and simmer, then strain and add the pip-water to the rest.
Add sugar to the liquid/pulp/peel mixture at the rate of a pound of sugar to a pint of liquid (roughly 400 grams to 1/2 litre?), dissolve well and then boil till it reaches setting point. Pour into clean warm jamjars.

If anyone tries to tell you that you have to slice the oranges BEFORE boiling them, just smile sweetly and ignore them.

Well I do intend to make my own marmalade one day, but in the meantime, my quest for the perfect marmalade has come up trumps. This one is every bit as good as the lovely one we used to get at Kellys of Cults in Aberdeen - maybe even better.

We found it in a rather unexpected place - Pynes Butchery at North Petherton has a range of jams and chutneys and other goodies from Homefarm Foods Banbury. This is already our favourite butcher, and now we have yet another reason to go there. When I opened the jar of their seville orange marmalade today and sniffed it, I knew I had a winner. The taste confirmed it! That's a relief. My cupboard was starting to get cluttered up with marmalades that had failed the test, although they will probably get used up somehow at some point.

So what did I have for breakfast? Tea (without any grumbles), toast and lovely marmalade. Yay!

Gee... I am glad I got up this morning...

Cornus canadensis (Canadian Dwarf Cornel, Canadian Bunchberry, Crackerberry,... Each flower has highly elastic petals that flip backward, releasing springy filaments that are cocked underneath the petals. The filaments snap upward flinging pollen out of containers hinged to the filaments. This motion takes place in less than half a millisecond and the pollen experiences 800 times the acceleration that the space shuttle does during liftoff. The Bunchberry has one of the fastest plant actions found so far requiring a camera capable of shooting 10,000 frames per second to catch the action (Edwards et al. 2005). The fruits are edible with a mild flavour somewhat like apples.

I'll have to be more careful when I'm out in the woods.

Places serving all-day breakfasts are very plentiful all over Sydney, where I came from. It's quite a common practice, particularly on a Sunday morning in the inner 'burbs, particularly the more yuppie ones like Glebe and Annandale, to go out for a large breakfast quite late in the morning and into the afternoon. Good idea if you ask me!

Meanwhile, just coming out of winter in Somerset, it was scrambled eggs on toast today, with tea, followed by more toast with marmalade and vegemite (not together). The thing that made today's breakfast different was that we were able to have it in our usually chilly conservatory because the sun was shining and had warmed it up (we did get up rather late). We could sit out there and watch the birds. Roll on spring and summer!

Thanks, Max.

Thanks, JennyO: I never used or noticed the all-day breakfasts in Sydney; nor did I ever goto Sweathearts, but I remember the very-early-bird Jimmy Barnes song about it -

"Six o'clock I'm going down,
Coffee's hot and the toast is brown".

"All Day Breakfast" is also popular in the US - there are chains that specialize in breakfast any time of the day, although they offer lunch and dinner items as well - International House of Pancakes, Waffle House, Cracker Barrel, Aunt Sarah's Pancake House. On a weekend the lines at those places will be out the door well into the afternoon, and a lot of those people are having 'breakfast'. Most diners will do breakfast any time, as well.

Coffee and cereal... BORING. Then I went to the gym, came home and had a cheese omelet (Gruyere. not as good as Cheddar) and toast, and for desert, a glass of lovely Port (2000). There's some of that port left (the port was Micca's fault), and that may be dinner.

I generally don't do the eggs first thing. I normally don't have time, and if I do, you just can't do a decent workout on a stomach full of eggs.

Buckwheat-apple pancakes with strawberry yogurt! YUM! and green tea.

Henway was one of the new items Chuck Baker put on the menu at my luncheonette in 1976. And a mattababy, too!

In 1988, long before going vegan, I downed (it may have been my first meal of the day?) some Peking duck in Peking/by then Beijing - very nice with bok choy.

Today, blueberry pancakes for husband and me. Required two different batters, though: gluten-free (from a King Arthur Flour mix) for him, and whole wheat (and without the potato starch that the mix had) for me. We're just starting out on this gluten-free adventure. Common ground (for complex carbohydrates, at least) will be found in rice, I guess.

(I'm on a nightshade-free diet -- no potatoes, tomatoes, eggplant -- seems to minimize inflammatory arthritis in me and my mother.)

First breakfast: cereal, followed by a long run.

Real breakfast, about 10.30 a.m.: 4 slices of double smoked bacon from Aubrey's butcher shop, which is what they serve the really deserving Vikings in Valhalla, 2 fried eggs, 2 slices of Maritime brown bread from the Trillium bakery, and two large mugs of coffee.

Instead of my usual coffee, I washed down my usual breakfast with Darjeeling tea today - but, apparently, it could well have been Tregothnan tea, as that part of Cornwall grows the very same Camellias, in a similar micro-climate.
