The Full Monty
Yes, the Full
Monty, ah English Breakfast.
Time has eroded the English breakfast, I don’t necessarily mean temporally, rather our lifestyles. Today we don’t have the time to make an English breakfast. With both Mum and Dad off to work, it’s tea/coffee and toast and off…
The value of an English breakfast cannot be surpassed. In today’s world of the obese, it is dangerous because our sedentary lifestyles have made it so. We are not active during the day or the evening any more, not active enough to burn off the calorific intake that an English breakfast provides.
Just look at that plate, from the grilled tomatoes (I prefer fried), clockwise, bacon, blackpudding, mushrooms, toast, baked beans and bangers (sausage) with perfectly fried eggs in the middle. This is the perfect breakfast.
With the demise of family life and the disappearance of the English breakfast the kids of today have no idea what food is. Hamburgers, hot-dogs and pizza is all kids understand today; they believe that anything that involves washing the dishes is not food.
