Woohoo, thanks for the new forum, Julian and Colin! Smile

Let me introduce you to some of the neighbor's family. A few of you guys know Swantje already - you doctored her picture in the "Fix-Me-Up" forum. She was flattered, by the way! Smile Now here she is again with Grandma and Mum, who is the happy birthday girl today.

We invited them over for breakfast. This is the table before we started. I failed to take a picture afterwards, I was too full to go and bring the camera again.

I just prepared the fruit salad... The breakfast here in Germany are very easy to prepare... Just bread from a good bakery, jam and butter and cold meat and cheese.... I prepared the salad because I found very fresh fruit yesterday and I know Swantje likes it. Smile

No, we don't usually have pancakes for breakfast here. Pity, because I like them a lot, especially with maple syrup. I wouldn't need anything else if I had pancakes. Smile

The typical German breakfast is rolls and/or bread, butter, honey, jam, and cold meat. A soft boiled egg or some scrambled eggs and a bit of bacon, maybe, although a lot of people shy away from the cholesterol nowadays. Oh yes and there is orange juice and coffee. Don't forget the muesli for the health conscious. The more discerned playboy will have a glass of sparkling wine to go with a late breakfast, to stimulate the blood circulation. Of course, in international hotel chains there is a lot more on the buffet table, sometimes even caviar and grilled scampi.

What do you typically eat in other countries for breakfast?

Bagels and cream cheese is one staple with juice made of orange juice and bananas or apple juice and bananas.

eggs, potatos, turkey sausage, juice.

cereal.

Joyce likes hot chocolate and I like coffee.

Waffles with turkey sausage.

A couple of "pick me ups" washed down with a glass of bourbon to help me to face the new day. Wink

You Germans eat like kings!! Big Grin

For me (not sure if it goes for the rest of Australia), it's usually toast and spreads (nutella or peanut butter) or cereal and milk. Once in a blue moon we spoil ourselves and have a "big breakfast" - scrambled eggs, sausages, grilled tomatoes and mushrooms and toast. All drowned in tomato sauce! Big Grin
