Toast

Post by Askit on Tue Feb 20, 2018 3:58 pm

I had to travel to Leicestershire for a family funeral last week and got a very early flight down from Glasgow to East Midlands coming back later in the afternoon of the same day. Tried several of the outlets at the airport for a bit of toast to go with my tea but it seems you can only get what's on the menu, and toast isn't an option. No problem if a pint of lager and a packet of crisps is your breakfast of choice at 6am though  Whistle1 Same when we stopped at Donnington services, you can any kind of cooked egg you want as long as it's poached, bacon baps or even a breakfast burger, but nobody will do toast. It was the same at East Midlands on the way back.

Does anyone remember the good old days before food outlets decided what we could have to eat  shrugg

Sounds great, apart from the dripping and salt that is  biggrin

The problem seems to be that so much of the foodstuff arrives precooked, ready to be reheated and sold. Bring back the “greasy spoon” happyyes

Tried to order a cheese and mushroom toastie at the garden centre. The response - sorry we only do cheese and ham or cheese and tomato. So I asked if we could have just cheese - blank stare from the 'assistant' so I suggested could she make a cheese and tomato one and leave the tomatoes off. This totally confused her, but she agreed. Got to the til - 2 cheese toastie. Response - we don't do just cheese! Suggested she charge us for cheese and tomato. She thought about it for a moment then said would I mind if she put it through as cheese sandwiches! The price was the same! VERY odd!

   Years ago we would all sit in works canteen at lunchtime and everyone took it in turn  to grill sausage/ bacon/ square sausage on the grill. Once everyone  finished one guy always went up and dipped his rolls in the bottom of the grill pan to mop up the grease. This usually was met with howls of derision and guys vacating the canteen to be ill. Funny thing us for all that healthy eating he is still alive healthy and weighs about 10 stones!  hugegrins

There was toast available at Cambridge Services on Friday but don't know whether you could have it by itself or whether only as part of a breakfast. At a cafe near where we live you can buy slices of sour dough bread to stick in a toaster so you can have it just as you like.

The problem tends to lie with franchise operations where they have a fixed menu and the items are loaded into tabs on the till. The staff are unable to deviate from what is listed.

Like many of you folk (apparently) I was often given fried bread (that’s bread fried in dripping) for breakfast by my mother when I was growing up. One morning I was unwell and, since then, it’s been impossible to get the association between the two things out my head. I have the same issue with ginger wine  shrugg

I used to eat a lot of bananas about 6 years ago. Then I had a big operation and went off them and have had hardly one since. Also at the same time I went off asparagus - bit of a problem as we grow loads of the stuff. Couldn't eat asparagus for a while but do now and have even put in a couple of new rows.
