    The reason I have an aversion to eggs is my nan use to whip a raw egg through porridge for me as a kid, to build me up as I was a scraggy kid. I can eat scrambled so long as there are no stringy white bits in, but semi  boiled raw eggs makes me feel ill.image

    I usually have toast and a cup of tea. If OH buys the wrong kind of butter (unsalted) then the toast is slathered with marmite. Sometimes it gets slathered any way!

    I bought some grapefruit marmalade yesterday so may give that a go . . . however now I want some poached eggs image (confession time, am just getting up - weather is fowl so am having a very lazy morning image)

    Bowl of cornflakes followed by brown bread and plenty homemadr jam. Apple and Blackberry to-day. But that was hours ago. Dinner soon. Roast chicken with potatoes carrot and parsnip from garden. Luvelly.

  • I make my own muesli by the barrow load, to which I add prunes, apricots, blueberries and a banana. Cold milk in Summer, warmed up a bit in winter. Put the milk and muesli in the microwave for a minute or two before adding fruit. Goes a bit porridgey.  yum.

    That sounds gorgeous WWboy, I make micrwave porrige regularly but not with the fruit - have that separately - yum.

    Porridge is great in the microwave. It's about all I use mine for apart from re heating cups of tea if I get distracted!  I like mine quite milky and runny and you can get it down to a tee! My mum used to make it for us when we were children and stood stirring it in a pot for ages. Could have plastered walls with it - ahhh - happy days! image

  • I had my main meal at lunchtime, which is unusually early for me... looks like a bowl of porridge is a must... great for the Cholesterol and very settling before going to bed

    waterbutts, you might like to know that Frank Zappa (a musician ... ) would sometimes wax lyrical about cold spaghetti fried up with cheese. He called it "Dad food".

    I never liked his music but cannot fault his recipes.
