Breakfast Crunchdown

Postby Samoan » 16 Jan 2019, 18:45

I normally have 3 slices of toast with Marmite and 1 slice of toast with Frank Cooper's Oxford marmalade.
But this evening, what with this cold spell coming on, I thought I might make myself some porridge with brown sugar tomorrow morning.

Fruit yoghurt, preferably 3% fat. Occasionally, scrambled egg/hardboiled egg and toast/toasted roll wth serrano. Milk tea (English Breakfast), Pepsi-Cola.

Two chicken biscuits and a large Coke Zero.

Now, there are plenty of problems with this breakfast, I know, not least of which is that it costs $7.56 every morning. And Chick-Fil-A is pretty well established as pure evil. AND it's definitely not healthy. But it's a drive-thru on the way to the job and Hell, if the choice in the (always hectic, always rushed) morning is between getting The Girl fed and feeding myself, of course I'm going to feed the Girl. I usually have a really small lunch.

Plus, looks at this beauty:

I can’t believe you go to Chik Fil A, bro.

I don’t boycott shit. Lord KNOWS we demand Tory Crumpets. But I haven’t spent a dime in a chik fil a since the gay marriage drama.

Two eggs fried in a bit of butter, a slice of buttered wholegrain toast and a cup of coffee with milk. Every weekday. Most weekends, too.

Yeah, it looks delicious, but that's the sort of thing I would eat maybe once a month. Two a day?! That's crazy!

Their anti-gay stance means shorter queues. The Count is a man in a hurry and needs his Chicken in a scone pretty fucking sharpish.

Bowl of yoghurt and granola (sugar- and, preferably, fruit- and berry-free).
Coffee (fairly strong, milk no sugar) if it’s my day to leave the kids. If it’s my day to pick them up then I get my coffee first thing on arriving at work.

At the weekend it’s toast with butter and scrambled eggs if my energy levels allow. And coffee obvs.

Awful thing when that happens. I had a similar experience at a Tom Jones concert.

It's true, it's true it's all true! :cry:

I think they must put some kind of Christian crack cocaine in them or something, too...I just can't quit them.

I have active boycotts of other things, too: anything Trump branded, The City of Stone Mountain GA, Wal-Mart.

It's just those fuckin' biscuits.

It's usually (cold) cereal/milk with fruit (usually blueberries) but about once a week I have a couple of eggs, bacon, toast with marmalade and water. I drink my cups of tea prior to breakfast regardless of what I eat. On more rare occassions I make polenta and top it with toasted pecans or walnuts, banana slices and maple syrup.

Really? When I first saw it I immediately thought:“God I hope they taste better than they look”. They look like some kind of disgusting Scottish deep fried monstrosity in a stale scone.


It’s cold this morning so I had porridge with brown sugar, and will follow it up with kippers, egg and coffee before braving the cold.

Two scrambled eggs with a torn up slice of processed cheese cooked with a no-fat spray in a potentially toxic Teflon pan. Black coffee.
