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?

bigkidsdidit Sat 11-May-13 13:50:58

mrsjay Sat 11-May-13 13:47:23

bigkidsdidit Sat 11-May-13 13:44:00

I drooled a little bit just reading your post OP grin
( happiness is knowing you have all the ingredients in the fridge, plus tomatoes, beans and tattie scones)

I would swap the beans for maple syrup, mmmm.

Have nt had eggy bread for ages...

mrsjay Sat 11-May-13 13:39:49

actually one of my favourite dinners is sausage bacon egg and chips oh and beans and tomato and a mushroom I could really go that now

mrsjay Sat 11-May-13 13:38:58

your pan isn't hot enough if it is soggy you need to leave it to cook and not keep turning it, ( i have bitter soggyness experience)

Sounds delicious.

bigkidsdidit Sat 11-May-13 13:34:50

lovely smile

why does my eggy bread come out soggy?

Skelacia Sat 11-May-13 13:32:24

YANBU. That's exactly what my DCs got for dinner last night, it always goes down well and a meal that gets eaten with no arguing always beats one that has to have every forkful negotiated!

Does she think you are supposed to cook on Friday nights, surely most people have something simple fends for themselves

mrsjay Sat 11-May-13 12:42:46

we call it french toast I love it and it is fine and tasty tea for anynight imo grin I like it savoury I cant get my head round people having it with sugar or syrup

Smellslikecatspee Sat 11-May-13 12:34:46

Guess what we're having for brunch? grin

LadyBeagleEyes Sat 11-May-13 12:21:17

Yy to crispy bacon and maple syrup with a pinch of cinnamon.
The salt and the sweet is delicious together.

SwishSwoshSwoosh Sat 11-May-13 12:17:03

Bacon is grim any time but the rest sounds just fine.

Dawndonna Sat 11-May-13 12:14:20

Mmmm, eggy bread.
We do a sweet version for pudding sometimes, too.
Dip in egg, then dip in plate of mixed caster sugar/cinnamon, fry. Delicious!

So wise at only 14, mrsk!

Eggy bread, crispy bacon and maple syrup, there's tomorrows breakfast sorted!

MrsKoala Fri 10-May-13 23:41:28

grin TheSurgeons - Actually i discovered it at about 14yo after too many biscuit dropping disasters, and then realisation that, when you dunk 2 packs of hazelnut maryland cookies in your tea, there is no tea left to drink < shock at thinking oh yummy now i'll drink my lovely tea and then the horror of realising the bastarding cookies have 'drunk' it all>.

Yuuuuuum eggy bread!

If my DCs would eat it, it would be a staple of our tea time menu.

<glares at DCs>
