Instead of my usual coffee, I washed down my usual breakfast with Darjeeling tea today - but, apparently, it could well have been Tregothnan tea, as that part of Cornwall grows the very same Camellias, in a similar micro-climate.

First breakfast: cereal, followed by a long run.

Real breakfast, about 10.30 a.m.: 4 slices of double smoked bacon from Aubrey's butcher shop, which is what they serve the really deserving Vikings in Valhalla, 2 fried eggs, 2 slices of Maritime brown bread from the Trillium bakery, and two large mugs of coffee.

Today, blueberry pancakes for husband and me. Required two different batters, though: gluten-free (from a King Arthur Flour mix) for him, and whole wheat (and without the potato starch that the mix had) for me. We're just starting out on this gluten-free adventure. Common ground (for complex carbohydrates, at least) will be found in rice, I guess.

(I'm on a nightshade-free diet -- no potatoes, tomatoes, eggplant -- seems to minimize inflammatory arthritis in me and my mother.)

Coffee and cereal... BORING. Then I went to the gym, came home and had a cheese omelet (Gruyere. not as good as Cheddar) and toast, and for desert, a glass of lovely Port (2000). There's some of that port left (the port was Micca's fault), and that may be dinner.

I generally don't do the eggs first thing. I normally don't have time, and if I do, you just can't do a decent workout on a stomach full of eggs.

"All Day Breakfast" is also popular in the US - there are chains that specialize in breakfast any time of the day, although they offer lunch and dinner items as well - International House of Pancakes, Waffle House, Cracker Barrel, Aunt Sarah's Pancake House. On a weekend the lines at those places will be out the door well into the afternoon, and a lot of those people are having 'breakfast'. Most diners will do breakfast any time, as well.

Thanks, JennyO: I never used or noticed the all-day breakfasts in Sydney; nor did I ever goto Sweathearts, but I remember the very-early-bird Jimmy Barnes song about it -

"Six o'clock I'm going down,
Coffee's hot and the toast is brown".

Places serving all-day breakfasts are very plentiful all over Sydney, where I came from. It's quite a common practice, particularly on a Sunday morning in the inner 'burbs, particularly the more yuppie ones like Glebe and Annandale, to go out for a large breakfast quite late in the morning and into the afternoon. Good idea if you ask me!

Meanwhile, just coming out of winter in Somerset, it was scrambled eggs on toast today, with tea, followed by more toast with marmalade and vegemite (not together). The thing that made today's breakfast different was that we were able to have it in our usually chilly conservatory because the sun was shining and had warmed it up (we did get up rather late). We could sit out there and watch the birds. Roll on spring and summer!

Don`t know, gnu. I was in Nfld many years back and I was given some to eat. IF my memory is right, they were a transparent greenish colour with some white stripes on them. They were delicious. However, all I know them as is cracker berries (so named I think because of the crack sound when ya bite into them). About the size of a medium blueberry.

Gee... I am glad I got up this morning...

Cornus canadensis (Canadian Dwarf Cornel, Canadian Bunchberry, Crackerberry,... Each flower has highly elastic petals that flip backward, releasing springy filaments that are cocked underneath the petals. The filaments snap upward flinging pollen out of containers hinged to the filaments. This motion takes place in less than half a millisecond and the pollen experiences 800 times the acceleration that the space shuttle does during liftoff. The Bunchberry has one of the fastest plant actions found so far requiring a camera capable of shooting 10,000 frames per second to catch the action (Edwards et al. 2005). The fruits are edible with a mild flavour somewhat like apples.

I'll have to be more careful when I'm out in the woods.

Well I do intend to make my own marmalade one day, but in the meantime, my quest for the perfect marmalade has come up trumps. This one is every bit as good as the lovely one we used to get at Kellys of Cults in Aberdeen - maybe even better.

We found it in a rather unexpected place - Pynes Butchery at North Petherton has a range of jams and chutneys and other goodies from Homefarm Foods Banbury. This is already our favourite butcher, and now we have yet another reason to go there. When I opened the jar of their seville orange marmalade today and sniffed it, I knew I had a winner. The taste confirmed it! That's a relief. My cupboard was starting to get cluttered up with marmalades that had failed the test, although they will probably get used up somehow at some point.

So what did I have for breakfast? Tea (without any grumbles), toast and lovely marmalade. Yay!

What an odd thread.

Egg fried rice, made with last-night's left-over rice, a few frozen peas, a spring onion, seasoning and a little soy sauce. And an egg, obviously. I sometimes like a sardine with egg-fried rice, I don't know why it works so well, but anyway I hadn't got any.
It's usually some type of chicken on a raft, occasionally with unsmoked bacon or one of my secret stash of sausages from Kitridding Farm, and I'm very partial to a kipper.
And strong Kenyan tea.
