    Now see I cannot do eggs for breakfast. Adkins just about killed me! I much prefer the baked goods/fruit/meat/cereal even oatmeal, over eggs.
    I very much believe in rescuing animals, not buying them.

    First of all, I am SO jealous that you lived in London. Second, what did it have in it? I have a recipe where you make regular french toast and then wrap it around sausage and eat it (so good!) Is that anything like what you had?

    I cannot do eggs for breakfast either I can eat them later in the day, but not much at breakfast. I'm also not a big sweet eater for breakfast. I actually prefer waffles or cereal or cold pizza for breakfast and only after I've been up for an hour or more.
    I do however, love breakfast for dinner. Then I can do eggs, omelets, pancakes, etc.
    And I don't like syrup which may be part of the sweet thing at breakfast.

    Kimchee is interesting. I've had it a few times. I pretty much like anything pickled, but my family hates that stuff. I'm a big chutney and chow-chow fan, corn relish, anything like that.

    Speaking of sweets, I am making my signature S'mores Brownie Cake for a potluck for work. I bake two circular pans with brownies, put marshmallow fluff in between the two cakes and some crunched up graham crackers then another layer of marshmallow fluff on top and break up some more graham crackers over the marshmallow fluff then drizzle it with a layer of Hershey's ice cream chocolate shell (the stuff that hardens.)

    It is uber sugary but soooo worth the calories!

    Since so many people are allergic to wheat gluten, there are a lot of wheat-free options out there now. I got the quinoa pasta at the local heath food co-op. I'm going to have to go back and get some more of it. Of all the wheat-free pastas I bought, this was the best. Vita Spelt makes a great spelt pasta, but I like their "processed" version rather than the whole grain variety. Not that the whole grain stuff is bad, but the other variety tastes just like regular semolina pasta

    Another great gluten free pasta (if you don't like the rice flour ones) is gluten free gnocci. It is potato based and you can substitute gluten free flour without it congealing into a giant blob monster. I'll post the recipe in the recipe thread if anyone's interested. It is really easy to make.

    Why do I not get as excited about desserts as so many other people? For me, they're just OK, and not really drool-worthy. I must have been standing in the wrong line when God gave out tastebuds for sweetness.

    Cats do not have sweet receptors in their tastebuds, and mine seem to be greatly diminished judging from so many people around me. This just gives more credence to my theory that I may have been a cat in a former lifetime!
