LUCY BURDETTE: Most days I eat a bowl of cereal for breakfast--the good stuff, Barbara's shredded oats. (Did you try them yet Hallie?)
But on vacation, I cut loose and eat large. And in Australia, that's really large. Here's the plate we were served in one of our B and B's:
Isn't that gorgeous? In case you can't tell, it includes fried tomatoes, English bacon, sauteed mushrooms, and eggs on wilted spinach and toast. This turns out to be the standard "brekkie" combination in Australia, and one of the best I've ever had.
There was a stretch of a few days when we decided we must cut back. We ate corn flakes until we ran out of them, and then bought a box of Australian granola.
John to me the next morning: "This is the worst cereal I've ever eaten."
I took a mouthful--chewy like a cud, and pasty, too. We ground our way through our bowls, but I had to agree.
Then I thought to read the box: Cook for five minutes in water to cover...imagine eating raw steel cut oatmeal and you'll get the picture. We threw that out and went back to bacon and eggs.
What's for breakfast at your house Reds?
