I could happily live on them My blessing is that I really can eat them all day and not end up like Hattie Jacques Lucky genes I guess I do try not to though because I'm sure it's not too healthy

Meat I only eat red meat (pork and cow) but I those 2 types however they are cooked, I like them. But in Cambridge, they wre able to cook meat ina way I couldn't even take a bite.

But what I dislike the most was the variety. I love vegetables, sallad, fish. And at the residence I stayed in, they rarelly cooked that.

Interesting - proper puddings here are Ok. Stodgy though I guess if you're not used to them. Providing you don't expect French-style patisserie.

Meat here is usually overcooked and can be pretty rubbish quality, unless the places make a virtue of proper sourcing. Fish is often fried and few places in the UK can dress a salad properly.

Re: The in bed with Nole thread:-))

Guess because I don't eat eat or fish, this is not a problem for me My main problem with British cooking is a tendancy to overcook - most people overcook their vegetables here until they're just a mushy mess I do love freshly grown veg here though - broad beans or runners from the garden

Re: The in bed with Nole thread:-))

ok, let's get this clear. I must confess I am not an easy person to feed. I almost don't eat meat. And there is a very high chance I don't like whatever either of you is cooking for dinner

My first meal in the UK was turkey. I can't stand that animal , and I didn't even touch the dish, but my friends who did like turkey and who dared to taste it, all told me that it was cooked in such a strange way, something they had never imagined it was even possible to cook.

Also, all your unpalatable sandwiches for lunch.

Oh I just remembered, I believe your bread is different than ours.

I guess I was just too used to food here in Portugal... But to be honest, I have been in +/- 10 different countries and I had never had that much trouble with food as I had in the UK.

Not a turkey fan myself - it's usually factory farmed which I avoid. Our standard UK bread is white and pretty atrocious, unless you are lucky enough to find small craft bakeries. Travelling in Germany is always such a treat bread-wise. I make my own.

Sandwiches yes - agree usually uninspired and full of inferior mayonnaise.

Here in Portugal, we're used to have very good bread and it comes with a lot of different types.

Apart from food, I must confess that my 2 weeks in the UK were probably the best of my life, and I would only compare them to my 2 weeks in Poland.

Re: The in bed with Nole thread:-))

I'm not a huge bread eater - one slice or a roll with dinner is about all I ever eat I'm not allergic to wheat or gluten (as can probably be seen by the amount of pastries I eat ) but I do sometimes find bread quite difficult to digest, - don't really know why - so I tend to avoid it.

Hi Lee Sorry you don't feel too well Must say, I've never really understood why a country like The States, that seems ostensibly more religious than the UK in many ways, should refuse to have a Public Holiday on the most sacred of all Christian holidays - but guess there's nothing that can be done about it

We are loquacious indeed today - too much time on our hands I guess.

Do public holidays vary in the US by state? JP works with some Texans and they're got the day off, Monday too he thinks.

We eat a lot of bread here. A lot, really. Brekfast and the meal between lunch and dinner are almost always consisted of bread for pretty much anyone.

Some people also eat bread with lunch and dinner. I don't because if I eat bread there won't be any more space in my stomach for the meal itself.

Yes - I remember all the different breads at breakfast when I stayed in an Hotel in Estoril. In fact, in most European countries. For a Brit of course, that whole cold buffet breakfast thing with bread, cold ham and cheese is just What's wrong with just a bowl of cereal, some fruit and a decent cup of tea or coffee? Who on earth wants to eat cheese first thing in the morning?

I do - I love the German-style breakfasts - and often have toast and cheese for breakfast here. Scooby snacks with loads of good back coffee really set you up for the day, especially after a night out.

I would advise you not to assume that our breakfast is like the ones served in our hotels.

I seriously wish it was!

Here people just eat a bowl of cereal, or some bread with ham/cheese(butter and milk, coffee or yogurth. Or some fruit.

I rarelly eat breakfast. I knwo some people find it very strange and unhealthy, but I am never hungry when I wake up and I am always in such a rush to leave home to go to school.

But when I do have breakfast, I eat only a yogurt (I don't drink milk ). If, and only if, I have the time and I am hungry enough, I might eat some bread with ham or cheese.
