Cereal? Yuk! I never ate breakfast in the USA.

Here I have fruit or juice + great country bread and the best cheeses in the world.

Steak (medium rare), eggs (up) with garlic toast and hash browns followed by a Lipitor chaser.

Don, a couple of glasses of red wine would work as well as the Lipitor.

I don't know Col. Dutch cheese is awfully good too. One morning in Amsterdam I had a terrible hangover (imagine) and wanted a big american style breakfast (without cooking). Jeff took me to the closest thing he could think of--Durty Nelly's Irish Pub. They had an "English Breakfast" and it was really different. Couldn't identify a couple of things on the plate, but the eggs and baked beans were good.
In Holland they eat bread and cheese for breakfast too. I really do like my eggs, bacon and fried taters though.

Sandy, Edam and Gouda are good, but the best Roquefort in France (sorry, not exported) is divine.

yep, you can't buy really good cheese in the states. Pasteurization kills the taste. Funny, you never hear about europeans being sick from their cheese.
Oh, and monkeynips, I've had the carol "Oh Holy Night" stuck in my head since before xmas. I hope you get it too....

Sandy, raw milk cheeses are legal in the USA now.

Some producers are already making them and you should be able to find them in a with-it univ town like the one in which you live. Imports, however, will be superior for the time being. Among the domestic blues Maytag is delicious.

Yep, Martina and the cheese is every bit as good as the quality appliances.

This branch of the family also acquired Anchor Steam beer from San Francisco, one of America's better beers although I think it has been eclipsed by Samuel Adams.

BTW if you haven't figured me out yet, I do enjoy quality food and beverage. My first wife was the chef of a legendary restaurant near Chicago, and I caught the food bug from her. And then when she died, I had to get up to speed on wine very quickly to keep that end of our restaurant up.

I have a few extra pounds which I'd like to shed, but I do not believe in dietary products. Eat really well and you'll eat less. Same thing for beer and wine.

For example, last night I treated Odile ginger-lime sea scallops with a half bottle of Sancerre white wine. Actually a pretty light meal, but very tasty.

Sorry, I forgot the lyrics- have to go watch that video again.


Before I go though- I want my MAYPO!

Mmmm, cheese. Now I'm getting hungry. Oh and Sandy, if it makes you feel better, I've had "Henry the Eigth I Am" stuck in my head all darn day. Guess it's Karma come to bite my but.

My idea of a good winter breakfast? A piping hot bowl of homemade oyster stew! (Weird, I know)
