Food :)

  • What do you eat? πŸ™‚
    Also, we will discuss beverages - such as tea and coffee, compotes, whatnot:)

    Are you an omnivore?:D Do you cook yourself? Sometimes?
    How do you prefer your tea/coffee made/served? Some sugar in? Or rather snack? Cookies?:yummy:

    I like tea and coffee. Coffee I brew in a cezve/ibrik, with a bit of sugar before pouring the water.
    With coffee and tea I like cookies:) But also I use sliced bread with something on it.
    Now I'm concocting a tea mix (sachets): 1 sachet of Chinese black tea, one grape herbal, 1 - Rooibos (I don't know if it's capitalised usually), and a sachet of a camomile herbal. I'm using a soup cup for the purpose now;)

  • Do you cook yourself?

    That sounds painful. πŸ˜›

  • Do you like yourself uncooked?

  • O'k, something to attract you:

    Who likes eggs?:)

  • Not sure about half the other stuff on that plate, but eggs are fine.

  • Not sure about half the other stuff on that plate...

    Cholesterol

  • I'm not a "breakfast meats" person. A little sausage maybe, no bacon or ham - steak and eggs is good. Hash browns, grits, toast with marmalade, milk and juice. Eggs have to be cooked thoroughly or scrambled, none of this runny yolks stuff. No, I don't generally have beans with breakfast.

    Of course, all the vegetarians and other busybodies will look at your picture and say there's way too much protein. Doesn't bother me any, but I've heard them say it about the typical American diet, and yours is somewhat bigger.

  • Let's post some food. πŸ™‚

  • Leo, avoid heavy images.
    Unless such are a 'bullseye' and sharp enough. Otherwise - why!!?

  • grits

    Grits refers to a ground-corn food of Native American origin, that is common in the Southern United States and eaten mainly at breakfast. Modern grits are commonly made of alkali-treated corn known as hominy.
    Grits are similar to other thick maize-based porridges from around the world such as polenta. "Instant grits" have been processed to speed cooking.
    The word "grits" derives from the Old English word "grytt," meaning coarse meal.[1] This word originally referred to wheat and other porridges now known as groats in parts of the UK. Maize, unknown in Europe in the Middle Ages, is a food derived from corn (a New World plant) and "corn" had been used to describe wheat products in many European regions. "Grits" may be either singular or plural; historically, in the American South the word was invariably singular notwithstanding its plural form (cf. such food names as "spaghetti" or "linguine", likewise plural in form).

    I didn't know that.

  • What greens do you eat?
    Do you like dill?

  • Leo, your image corrupts this page's layout (sometimes).
    Would you like to resize or replace it?

  • I have sympathy for animals, so I've become a vegetarian, though because of pizza -- which I believe was probably the Biblical manna which fell from heavens -- (imagine that, pizzas falling from the sky, and Moses and his followers catching the pizzas from hand as they fell ;))) I do not exclude from my diet, milk, cheese, or eggs. I mean, how can one tolerate pizza without cheese. It's unthinkable to me. Therefore, technically I'm called an Ovo-lacto vegetarian. Now to balance the good health qualities of the vegetarian diet, I thrive on lots of coffee, which clears up my mind sufficiently to participate in the Opera forum. If i haven't had enough coffee, I get lost somewhere between Presto and Blink, and have trouble expressing myself in a coherent sentence. As for Opera Presto and Opera Blink, they're both wonderful browsers, so with a glass of wine in hand (And by the way, I get my daily water supply from coffee and wine), I offer a toast to both.

  • I have sympathy for animals, so I've become a vegetarian...

    Don't you have sympathy for vegetables!?

  • Of course. When I eat a vegetable, I fulfill it's primary purpose in life. Being eaten. πŸ™‚ It smiles then and says, "thank you."

  • Having some meatballs, I'd like a glass of red wine... I have none...

  • Having some tea with freshly bought cookies:yummi:

  • with a salamiwichπŸ˜‰

  • i simply adore grits. the way i prep it is just to boil water, add sugar sustitute for enhanced taste. accompanied by toast, fruit cup with cottage cheese. my wife adds brown gravy to grits which i detest.

  • Having [instant] hot chocolate with curd-filled crΓͺpes:
