Now I read that oatmeal stays with you longer than some foods do. Eat oatmeal and you'll stay full longer.

Right, Duke, oatmeal is a breakfast meal. Often I have breakfast for dinner. In the morning I had the meal I mentioned. At a quarter till three I had a banana. At seven-thirty I had a bowl of oatmeal with butter, half and half, a little sugar with homemade biscuits, buttered up good, with a cup of coffee.

I vary my meals as people do. Sometime at night I eat bacon and eggs, toast, coffee or ham or sausage. Sometime I eat a sandwich at night, sometime we have goulash or one of the hated TV dinners (Ugh). I like egg sandwiches, hard cooked, with pepper and a little hot sauce, or on occasion, a grilled cheese. Once in a while a pork chop. But make no mistake, I'm a carnivore, and come warm weather I can stalk a steak like a blood hound. But then, I eat just like everybody else.

No Maggs, you need more breakfast than that. I don't know what weetbix is. It sounds like grandpa's whiskers or what do they call it, shredded wheat. I have never been able to handle that reduced milk. I don't like it. I tried it one time for a week. I finally decided either my wife, who was buying the stuff, or the 1% milk or what ever it was, had to go. I drink whole milk. I use it on whatever you use milk for, except cereal. Sometime, I buy heavy cream and use it, but only once in a while.

My mouth is watering from reading those things on your menu, Hawkeye. :biggrin:
Yes, Weetbix, Vitabrits, and other such are bricks of flaked wheat that easily disintergrate, eaten with milk but often we pour a bit of hot water on first.

I wouldn't worry about a bit of cream. It's far better for you than butter or margarine - get rid of them and eat more cream. It npt only improves the taste of everything, but satisfies the appetite well too. Oatmeal (good, as you say) with sugar and cream is a treat and keeps you going a long time. :romance-cloudnine:

True, Dawn, but frankly Australia has found e-coli in these vegies from some Asian countries.
True, Dreamweaver, but don't forget that not everyone boils their vegies. Most blanche or steam it and that isn't enough to kill all bacteria.
In fact I love raw asparagus and snowpeas but I make sure they are from Australia or NZ.

Hawks, thats a pretty 'reasonable' breakfast for a growing lad!

You've gotta wean yourself off that stuff, GD, before it's too late. :wink
The last interglacial had less ice, higher sea levels, and warmer temperatures than this one. So, according to the evidence so far, human activity must have a COOLING effect.

I'm not sure... something happened, I stopped getting reminder emails, then suddenly it was next year.

Good to be back. :handgestures-thumbsupright:

i'm very healthy when i'm not sick or when i don't have self inflicted injuries eg., thinking i'm hercules,when the neighbour's pup had a need.pup since given away ,neighbour on the other side complaining about him.

grandduke, tinned pink alaskan salmon very economical also easy to cook with to make a delicious meal, except recently, when i had one of singlemalt's episodes and used a large tin of red salmon instead of pink. :eek
