@ehBeth,
I got up late and perforce had to amalgamate breakfast and dinner. Dinner is the mid-day meal in the common circles in northern England. It is Lunch at the posh end and Brunch for the in betweens. One goes to lunch and one has mi dinner. There's a different emphasis. Going to lunch is more abstract but not post-modern.

Although lunch does rhyme with crunch, munch, scrunch and bunch. Maybe it's not as posh as it thinks it is. Rhymes conjure unconscious harmonies and lunch sounds like the mandibles of some large insect working its way through a nutrient bed to me.

So--I had apple juice, porrige and a banana, my usual breakfast, it keeps me going, and baked beans on toast with wholemeal bread and 2 fingers of a Kit-Kat out of the fridge and two cups of strong, slightly sugared tea followed by a sweet coffee. 3 roll-ups while fiddling about on A2K and I was ready to go for a tough afternoon helping Gordon Brown to replenish the banks.

@ehBeth,
I bought several egg cups at a yard sale this AM and rushed home and sterilized them. AFter which I made several 3 minute eggs (our hens are still alaying) . Served with toast and tabasco . Lady Gray tea (its a bit less caffienated than the Earl Gray), and a banana each. Thats held me till now. We are going for supper at some friends who are vegetarians and I ousghta secure all kinds of plenary indulgences for eating like that all day.

I didnt even have a Reeses Pnut butter cup

@farmerman,
Lady Grey is one of my early evening teas.

Fresh eggs. I am envious.

it was a sort of two breakfast day

we (Set, Thomas, Joeblow, Mr Joeblow, me) found things to snack on to start the day - bread/cheese/butter tarts/leftover pasta with chicken

then ... Mr Joeblow made the most awesome Eggs Benedict with peameal bacon! Wow, what a meal. Given the steaks he'd prepared on the bbq the night before, and the superb hospitality he showed "the internet weirdos" we all had more than enough evidence that Mr Joeblow is more than your average keeper.

@Intrepid,
I rendered a couple of thinthinthin slices of pancetta in a pan. Tossed in half a pound of sliced mushrooms and one small diced maple-smoked ham steak. Pulled the pancetta out once it was crispy. Scrambled four eggs into the ham/mushroom mess. Threw on a handful of shredded cheeses. Put a lid over top. Served the mushroom/ham/cheese sorta omelette on a crusty Italian bun, with the pancetta crisps on top. Canadian farm-style chili sauce (sorta chunky ketchup) on the side.

A nice big cup of English Breakfast tea.

All is well right now.

ahhhhhhhhhh

@ehBeth,
(I love eggs benedict, I do, but I don't remember the last time cheese and bread tasted so good!) What was that cheese, do you remember? An old cheddar, yes, but what kind? I've been thinking about it. I'd like to try that again.

Today I fried up some thick cut smoked bacon and added it to some old Baldersons white cheddar and grilled it up on rye. Very good, but maybe a bit too sharp (until today I didn't think there was such a thing, but I might have prefered a milder cheese). But, it's what I had, so I'm not complaining.

Lots of fresh coffee with cream. I'm hooked on the smell.

@Joeblow,
Breakfast - the last of the leftover homemade pizza (fresh mozzarella, sweet onion slivers, garlic, fresh ital sausage bits), microwaved. Two cups coffee/little half and half.
Heh, four pieces of candied orange peel, since I was reminded of it by another a2k thread.

@ossobuco,
Coolest breakfast ever. The only way you could have made it better was to pop the pizza into the oven or toaster oven to heat it up! Very Happy

I cup of frosted mini-wheats with 3/4 cup 2% milk.

late morning snack: one small banana.

until you go on a diet and start measuring, you don't realize how little there is in 'one cup' of mini-wheats! :-)

@Joeblow,
That was an Empire cheddar. It was marvellous, wasn't it.

I saw them at the Royal - their cheese and butter award-winning again this year. I was able to nod knowingly - ahhh yes, we just had some of that at the get-together.

I didn't realize how small a facility they had. I recommend getting some of their butter next time you're up there - good stuff, Vern.
