Must remember to get some Tim Tams when at the shop next...haven't had them in ages!

I just had my lunch! A slapped up pizza, as I had some left over italian meatballs, and some mozzarella, put them on a lebanese bread and put it in the oven! And I even got to eat it without the baby waking up....which he usually does if I make something hot for lunch! Now if I can just manage to get the washing hung out, it will be a great day!

A cold pork sandwich with avocado, followed by a yoghurt.

Tonight for dinner we will be having steak and salad! How prepared am I today! Well, I brought the steak......

[quote=""EC2""] Weetabix for e.g. like Diamondlil had for breakfast are certainly indigenous to the UK and Australia at least! Don't know about the rest of the world.[/quote]


EC...Here they are Weetbix. Not weetAbix! And you need to have 3 to be anything like filled that the 2 UK ones would do! I think they are slightly smaller and not as compressed, but they taste almost the same and do the same job!

I don't remember noticing a significant difference in size. What did surprise me was how much different Cornflakes taste between here and the UK.

I haven't eaten anything yet today, waiting for dinner. I imagine I'll be having chicken and chips + a buttie.

And Tim Tams are great!

Ahhh! Well! Its like this.....you have not got such a pedantic father in law as I have!

Actually, when they came over for holidays before we all moved here they had some left over (they travelled around in a hired camper van), and tey brought them back and for some unknown reason gave them to us. We had a box of Weetabix and compared them! FIL then said that is why the normal two left him hungry!

As for the cornflakes, you are so right!

Well, I didn't have Weetabix this morning, I had Oatibix! In fact, I'm wading through all the cereals which we seem to have accumuated that no-one else likes. I'm not in the least bit faddy over my food.

What's different about Cornflakes? Which brand are they?

Are cornflakes sold in the UK under Kelloggs? I don't remember. Either way, we mainly get the Kelloggs brand here so if that isn't the brand sold in the UK then that could be it.

It's Kellogs in the UK, too, unless you choose an 'own brand' make. How strange that they should taste different, then! Weetabix is Weetabix and Shredded Wheat is Nestle, I think.
