Hmm...goulash for breakfast! Not sure if I could do that. Although from what I understand sweets of any kind for breakfast, even cereal, is a very Western thing. I lived in Japan as a teenager and the traditional Japanese wonder how on earth anyone could eat sweets first thing in the morning. That is very unappealing to them. They start their day off with Miso Soup. It's delish but definitely not on my breakfast menu anytime soon!

I've just eaten porridge, I've had a late breakfast. Last night we went out for a meal to Loch Fyne, a seafood restaurant and oyster bar, where I had mussels following by a seafood platter consisting of crab, langostines, more mussels, scallops, prawns, oysters........ It was yummy!

Do you cut your toast up into soldiers, Diamondlil, or is that just a British thing!? I always cut mine into soldiers. :o :)

We had spicy sausage casserole tonight.

I did! Unfortunately my eggs were quite small and so were a bit overcooked, but I did get a couple of dips in! Yum!

Yeah, there's never enough yolk is there.... I wonder if ostrich eggs taste the same as regular hen's eggs - there'd be plenty of yolk then!

I had spicy sausage casserole last week Vanessa! Tonight it was duck breast marinated in orange and basil (treat from monthly visit to next town butcher) salad and new potatoes.

How long would an ostrich egg take to cook do you think? And how big would the saucepan need to be! LOL!
