I adore Grapenuts! I leave them soaking in the milk until they go soft though, which takes about 25 minutes 8)

I've found that I'm more energized throughout the day if I have a big breakfast. Grapenuts fits the bill and has plenty of fiber too. Soaking it in milk seems to be a good idea. I've been concerned that years of eating this cereal is wearing down my teeth. My other favorite breakfast is steel cut oats.

God, that sounds great.
I'm going to do a brunch on Saturday of corned beef (sliced and fried), thinly sliced potatoes, fried, and baked beans - all in the same pan with a splash of Worcester sauce and a good grinding of pepper and sea salt. Looking forward to it already. Incidentally, has anybody experienced the sensation of a piece of sea salt in your teeth that has slipped through the grinder / mill? It felt like my tooth was dissolving.....
Meanwhile at work today I had a tin of this shit on toast (still living the dream 8) )

Hi, Noisy!
Just spent a week England consciously consuming only "traditional" English food. Had the first steak and kidney pie in my life that tasted like I imagined it was supposed to.
One question, though. I went into a number of supermarkets during my five day stay and I couldn't help noticing that most people seemed to be buying finished meals of which there were a vast variety on offer. Some of them looked quite healthy, but that's not really the point for me. Are the English (despite "star cooks") slowly giving up on making their own food?

Today the 1st of October, I'm going to pick about 5 gallons of black walnuts. This is a great time to collect. Will be eating them as part of my breakfast. 8)

I was remembering those old Nestcafé ads, that we had here in OZ 40 years ago, that used to say 43 beans in every cup. Yesterday I weighed 43 coffee beans and it was 7 grams which was traditionally required for a single espresso shot. So now that ad makes sense. These days, it's typically about 20 grams in a double shot, even higher. I have about 20 grams per cup of home made cappuccino. That's 123 beans in every cup.

Yes, and I think they have been for the last 40 years....
People are lazy and don't enjoy cooking. They also believe that they don't have the time to prepare meals nowadays - mainly because they are told this.
I get up at about 6:15 most mornings whilst my wife and baby daughter are waking up. I wash and sterilize the baby milk bottles, get ready and go to work. I get back at about 6:10 in the evening do the bottle routine again and begin cooking our dinner whilst my wife puts little Rebekah to bed (she has her all day whilst I'm at work). We then sit down and eat at about 8pm and I do the dishes.
I also fit in a swim before work twice a week and on a Saturday.
I also prepare lunches to take to work and leave for my wife.
If you want it, it's mostly possible - lifestyle choice, I mean.

English people (on the whole) are very lazy. My ancestry is French 8)

Felt it was right to add that my wife does all the night time routines too whilst I sleep in another room!
