Re: I like a good breakfast but.....

In contemporary eating greed seems very acceptable.Personally I would not choose to eat such food and find a dish of porridge more than adequate-occasionally adding a pinch of salt or aloes for a treat now and then.I do not like the way Morrison's etc seem to encourage gluttony,but in the end the co...
