AIBU to think eggy bread, bacon and beans is a perfectly reasonable tea for a Friday night?

My mother thinks I'm trying to poison my dcs I think

Surely as an occasional meal about 4 times a year it's not that bad?

Is it all finished or can I come round for left overs? smile

Sounds like a good meal any day of the week grin

Can I have tinned spagetti with mine instead of beans and what time should I be there? The only reason DD doesn't get food like that is because I refuse to share eggy bread

I can't see anything wrong with it. What's wrong with your mother?! wink

That sounds yummy smile

Fairylea Fri 10-May-13 20:31:30

What's wrong with that?? It's got protein, vegetables, carbohydrate....! All fine smile

We sometimes have pancakes for dinner... now that IS bad smile

Sounds great.

Just as an aside, my cousin's 'D'H has mortally offended my aunt, his MIL, by complaining that her delicious food - lasagnes, cottage pies, casseroles, cauliflower and mushroom cheese - is crappy student food. He is a twat.

YABU, beans should never be on the same plate as any other food, except a baked tattie!

AllYoursBabooshka Fri 10-May-13 20:33:07

Oh God yes, I want exactly that... Right now. Yanbu.

I have no eggs and no bacon though.

YANBU Sounds yummy, I fancy making that myself!!

Floggingmolly Fri 10-May-13 20:34:52

It sounds delicious. Didn't your mum ever give you anything like that?

KitNCaboodle Fri 10-May-13 20:35:58

Mmm, eggy bread. YANBU

OldRichandGrateful Fri 10-May-13 20:36:22

Sounds lush.

Two portions over here please - with a cup of tea- two sugars!!

My mother thinks if there aren't 3 veg and 'proper' meat on a plate, then it isn't a proper meal

Pasta is really quite scandalous!

stealthsquiggle Fri 10-May-13 20:37:15

I want that now. Do you think DH would mind if I rejected the meal he has just cooked and demanded that instead grin?

Floggingmolly Fri 10-May-13 20:37:42

Student food, INeedThatFork???? On what planet? On this one student food is Pot Noodle and kebabs.

SDTGisAnEvilWolefGenius Fri 10-May-13 20:39:06

It sounds perfect!

What is eggy bread?

CombineBananaFister Fri 10-May-13 20:41:26

YABU-you've given me dinner envy envy.

Think people are too hung up on mealtimes and type in general especially when you look at other cultures and what they eat throughout the day -each to their own I say,no more food rules!

AllYoursBabooshka Fri 10-May-13 20:42:01

It's what Heaven is made of.

Jinty64 Fri 10-May-13 20:43:08

No, no, no. Eggy bread and bacon should be served with fried tomatoes. Beans is just wrong!

hugoagogo Fri 10-May-13 20:44:17

eggy bread=eggy toast I think.

No bacon for me please.

TigerSwallowTail Fri 10-May-13 20:44:39

Eggy bread? Is that French toast?

SybilRamkin Fri 10-May-13 20:45:37

shock at ShadeofViolet! It's bread dipped in beaten egg then fried in a pan till crispy and golden and delicious...

It's sometimes called French toast, and the French call it Pain Perdu ("lost bread" because it's usually made with stale bread).
