    ^Unfortunately just toast most of the time, toast and a cup of tea if I have enough time - my favourite thing about staying in a hotel is having a buffet breakfast - I'm like a kid in a candy shop - sadly, my eagerness to sample every type of dish available normally sets me up badly for the day.

    Hmmm, my favourite breakfast - toast (cheese on toast would be a luxury, birthdays, Christmas etc...), weetabix, some fruit (cos it's healthy like), orange juice and a cup of tea...ohhh, can I have crumpets, I like crumpets as well...ohhh....and croissants with butter and jam....

    You see, I just can't stop myself!

    During the week it is normally some sort of cereal or muesli with semi-skimmed milk and a cup of tea.

    At the weekend I have more time to indulge but I try to limit myself to a fry up once a month - having said that I have just returned from the sea front where I pigged out on egg, beans, bacon, sausage, tomato and chips (I decided that for decency's sake I'd pass on the chips) with fried bread.

    I've never seen the attraction of cheese on toast, I'm a toast and dripping fan.
    Lord, deliver us from e-mail.

    Like Mr Nick and Dougal I'm normally in a rush during the week and just manage some muesi. At weekends I do like to indulge though. And of course it is obligatory to eat until you are physically ill at hotel 'eat-all-you-can-you-greedy-bastards' buffets.

    Not being much of a meat-eater, or a lover of fried food, I have never gone for the lorry-driver fry-ups. The very thought of them makes me feel queasy - fry-ups that is, not lorry-drivers.
    Back off Margaret, you're on a sugar rush!

    Healthy options from marmers and GoW - good to see.

    Hangover breakfasts are something else altogether. When suffering (or still drunk from the night before) I tend to opt for high calorie combinations of egg, cheese, bread/pastry. Today was one such occassion and a brie bagel sorted me out nicely....I supect that the same may be necessary tomorrow.

    Mostly breakfast is a nice croissant, I keep a stock in the freezer, warmed gently then, sliced and topped with tuna. Coupled with an expresso. But twice a week its Muesli and banana's. I like breakfast, the other meals I couldn't really give a toss, but a nice breakfast sets the tone of the day I think. Maybe I am right, maybe I am wrong and maybe I have have had one glass of red too many.

    ^Hmmm, I've always thought a bit of butter or marge would do, but if that's the taste you like I guess it isn't much different to marmite!

    thats quite a good meal too ! slow and steady is the trick - you ahve to plabn these things! otherwise you'll be like a bull at a gate and you'll be piling steaks onto your pasta which was on top of the freash seafood and you'll never last the distance!

    I always start with some sushi plus shellfish plus a side plate of salad.

    then perhaps have a look at the antipasta

    possibly moving onto a small pasta or some indian food options

    then move onto the big boys - a steak with pepper sauce option or the roasts! - if i have room i'll detour via the lamb cutlets and the spinach lasgna is usually good.

    then its the cheese & fruit platter - while the missus can attack the deserts

    finish with an expresso, go home and sleep!

    jsut remember DONT MAKE FRIENDS WITH BREAD !

    My breakfast ritual starts with collecting a freshly-laid duck's egg from the shed, fry it up with ham, tomatoes and bread, accompanied by a jug of of Ovaltine and fruitjuice.

    Eating can make you forget or give up something.

    Two cups of coffee for me!

    But on weekends I pig out: Omelet or poached eggs, toast, and bacon or sausage or ham or some combination thereof . Sometimes I have pancakes or french toast instead of eggs.

    When I told my father I was marrying a Thai woman the first question he asked me was "Can she cook?". Fortunately the answer is yes.
