We stayed at a B&B on the Isle of Skye and the B&B host was known for offering the morning porridge with Bailey's instead of milk or cream.  I tried it the first morning and, though delicious, I was ready for a nap by 9:30 AM!

My Dad was from Donegal & always put butter in his porridge,a habit I got into & do to this day,when I asked where he got the idea from he told me it was the Irish way,when I asked my Aunt if she did the same she claimed to have never heard of it!😒

LET'S GO OUT TO EAT 2020
1. Arrive at restaurant, fish your three month old single-use surgical mask out of car's filthy cupholder (still slightly sticky from this morning's 84oz diet Pepsi).
2. Strap up with three month old single-use surgical mask.
*MAGICAL ANTI-GERM BARRIER ENGAGED!!!*
3. Proceed into restaurant, opening door with same handle grabbed by 200 people so far today.
4. Hostess has immediate seating for your woke party of three. Walk past entire restaurant of unmasked people. It's ok, they're sitting.
5. Sit down.
*SEATED ANTI-GERM FORCEFIELD ENGAGED!!!*
6. Safely within your anti-germ forcefield, remove mask. Browse menu while making relaxed inhales of the same recirculated AC air previously inside the lungs of the 200 people that also grabbed the door handle.
7. Waitress drops off drinks bare handed.
8. Grab drink with your bare hand. Sip leisurely, secure in knowing you're within your anti-germ forcefield of seatedness.
9. Too many drinks. Need to pee. Put on your magical anti-germ barrier mask as you leave your anti-germ forcefield of seatedness.
10. Walk past 40 unmasked restaurant patrons. Open bathroom with same door knob grabbed by 100 other people so far today.
11. Return to table past same 40 unmasked restaurant patrons.
12. Remove mask. Once again safe in your anti-germ forcefield of seatedness. Waitress takes your sweaty drink glass with her bare hand, refills, hands back to you. You accept with your bare hand. Grab some bread and eat it. Same hand. Yum Yum.
13. Meal complete. Mask on. Walk past 40 unmasked patrons. Make full body contact with at least 4 people waiting at the hostess stand as you squeeze your way back to the door - no matter, they're all also wearing their magical anti-germ barriers.
14. Grab exit handle, which you are now the 220th person of the day to touch. Eating out successful.
15. Breathe a sigh of relief knowing that even after leaving the protection of your home and venturing out into the scary world of the public, you are essentially sterile thanks to your state approved methods of magical germ mitigation.
Yep....ridiculous, isn't it?
 

LOL

Funny/Sad/Stupid/absurd and many more adjectives...

 

Love it.

We used to put butter in our oatmeal. I was from Wisconsin though. We put butter on everything...

Raisins?

As well as the butter I sometimes add dried mixed fruit &/or peanut butter,my Wife chooses blueberries,never sugar though

At Christmas time dried fruit soaked in brandy is sometimes available in supermarkets,gets the day off to a great start & smells wonderful!

British food...aah! Gourmet!

Believe this was posted previously but it’s worth reposting as the idea breakfast. After that, it’s time to considered that most favourite meal...kippers!

Mouth watering thought, isn’t it?

Enjoy...

p.s. Some might consider this post ‘humourous’...

 

 

Hello,

 

After the 'full English', my favourite too are kippers.

 

So I was in the Diamond section of the MDR for breakfast of the Navigator and gave my order quite precisely: A slice of brown toast, on top kippers, on top of them a poached egg - the poached egg stops the kippers 'repeating'. My plate arrived later with the toast and poached egg and something floating around the side: I looked at it; I looked at the waiter and back to the plate; I looked at the head waiter and back to the plate; "What is wrong" I was asked, "Where are the kippers" I asked - "Kippers, we though you said capers" came the reply whereupon everyone in earshot collapsed in laughter.

 

Regards,

 

Cublet
