    Food is generally tasty but not large portions or particular times. Rice as a more regular staple I have learnt to love. Potatoes and pasta are reduced, bread only if freshly baked.

    I felt I would get some abuse from the fruit/cereal/gym crowd but none so far.

    Youve got my vote mate ,,,,,,,, I,m all for changing my western diet ,, when we have what I call a western dinner now ( which is only about 2 times per week ) I probably only eat 2 small potatoes in the meal,, but far more root + green veg. I am more than happy to have my bran flake breakfast 7 days a week but at the weekend its the Thai in our home that wants to eat a western fry up !
    When we are in Thailand in a hotel/ resort overnight I am quite happy to eat a bowl of congee + spice on top , which is hot out the pot ,,,,,,,,as opposed to the cold fried eggs and those disgusting looking sausages and shrivelled up bacon rind that so many foreigners seemed determined to get down their necks
    I'm proud of my 38" waist , also proud I have never done drugs

    I've never really taken breakfast seriously, but, today I had Pomelo and a few slices of Mango. Wow. Felt great, going to start the dat with fruit from now on. Very enjoyable and perked me right up.

    Why are all the cereals in 7/11 aimed at kids ?

    Lucky Stars, frosties and them Choco things

    The corn flakes and frosties will break your teeth too, what do they add to them.

    While I'm at it, the chupa chups, you chew them here, instead of sucking ???

    I've also found the Pomelo and Mangos are nice breakfast fruits. I enjoy pineapple and bananas as well for breakfast.

    Slice of fried bread.

    Two pieces of black pudding.
    get rid of the grilled tomato and add a few pieces of whole wheat toast and were talking business.

    Friday, 9 September 2011: I decided to mix it up just a little bit this morning. I was thinking pancakes but decided on waffles. Not much more effort just to get the waffle maker out and coat it with some oil so the batter would not stick.

    I like my waffles crisp so kept them in the waffle maker a little longer than recommended. In the buttermilk batter I mixed some cinnamon and nutmet in with it to spice it up a little bit. I put some maple syrup on them because I had no powdered sugar and they were tasty. Washed them down with some Lipton “spiced tea”. I like my carbs so these waffles hit the spot this morning.

    To the best of my knowledge, yes. I got mine a few years ago at the then Carefore on Central Road in Pattaya. That store is now a Big C "Extra" but would imagine that same or similar electronic products are stocked.

    On my waffle maker, the waffle plates are fixed so they can not be taken out and cleaned, nor can the waffle maker be used as a skillet so it's uses are limited to making waffles. But they do make the waffles fairly nice. Can't remember the cost. 1,800 baht ball park...

    You need to turn those waffles into a Toffee Waffle Sundae, ST

    My kids love them with ice cream and maple syrup, so do I actually


    Also that fry up, you need toast to dip into the eggs

    Reminds me of this as a kid


    Mmmmm Eggs and Soldiers

    The eggs were not mine and my comment was same as yours, "toast needed.....

    SabaiSabai, I do not disagree with you about the waffles but this was for breakfast and ice cream is not something I usually eat for breakfast. Now that it is lunch time though, how about some waffles with strawberries, ice cream and chocolate?

    Now that's a proper breakfast Nigel. Only once a week though - the rest of the week I make do with coffee and a couple of poached eggs.

    I find it's quite amazing that fresh Mangoes are actually on the shelves of UK supermarkets. How many years have you noticed them been there?

    YES, I agree agree with Ticket that this is a proper breakfast and living in the UK probably even more proper. Good job nigel....

    The reason I mentioned fresh Oh Oh was as opposed to the sliced tinned mango we eat at night with ice cream
