"morning" and "cereals", you chose to read cereals, I chose morning.

Well, at least you made sense as usual, contrary to others here!

Speaking of making sense!

Q - What's your favourite breakfast cereal?

A - Meat and coffee

:lol: :lol: :lol: Yes, you make sense.

Here's another one.

Q - What's your favourite sandwich spread?

A (Superglide) -

1 tablespoon kosher salt
1 teaspoon ground coriander
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
1 teaspoon black pepper
1 (5- to 6-lb) Long Island duck (also called Pekin)
1 juice orange, halved
4 fresh thyme sprigs
4 fresh marjoram sprigs
2 fresh flat-leaf parsley sprigs
1 small onion, cut into 8 wedges
1/2 cup dry white wine
1/2 cup duck stock, duck and veal stock*, chicken stock, or reduced-sodium chicken broth
1/2 carrot
1/2 celery rib

For sauce
1/3 cup sugar
1/3 cup fresh orange juice (from 1 to 2 oranges)
2 tablespoons white-wine vinegar
1/8 teaspoon salt
2 to 4 tablespoons duck or chicken stock or reduced-sodium chicken broth
1 tablespoon unsalted butter, softened
1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon fine julienne of fresh orange zest, removed with a vegetable peeler

Special equipment: an instant-read thermometer; a 13- by 9-inch flameproof roasting pan
Preparation
Roast duck:
Put oven rack in middle position and preheat oven to 475°F.

Stir together salt, coriander, cumin, and pepper. Pat duck dry and sprinkle inside and out with spice mixture. Cut 1 half of orange into quarters and put in duck cavity with thyme, marjoram, parsley, and 4 onion wedges.

Squeeze juice from remaining half of orange and stir together with wine and stock. Set aside.

Spread remaining 4 onion wedges in roasting pan with carrot and celery, then place duck on top of vegetables and roast 30 minutes.

Pour wine mixture into roasting pan and reduce oven temperature to 350°F. Continue to roast duck until thermometer inserted into a thigh (close to but not touching bone) registers 170°F, 1 to 1 1/4 hours more. Turn on broiler and broil duck 3 to 4 inches from heat until top is golden brown, about 3 minutes.

Tilt duck to drain juices from cavity into pan and transfer duck to a cutting board, reserving juices in pan. Let duck stand 15 minutes.

Make sauce:
While duck roasts, cook sugar in a dry 1-quart heavy saucepan over moderate heat, undisturbed, until it begins to melt. Continue to cook, stirring occasionally with a fork, until sugar melts into a deep golden caramel. Add orange juice, vinegar, and salt (use caution; mixture will bubble and steam vigorously) and simmer over low heat, stirring occasionally, until caramel is dissolved. Remove syrup from heat.

Discard vegetables from roasting pan and pour pan juices through a fine-mesh sieve into a 1-quart glass measure or bowl, then skim off and discard fat. Add enough stock to pan juices to total 1 cup liquid.

Stir together butter and flour to form a beurre manié. Bring pan juices to a simmer in a 1- to 2-quart heavy saucepan, then add beurre manié, whisking constantly to prevent lumps. Add orange syrup and zest and simmer, whisking occasionally, until sauce is thickened slightly and zest is tender, about 5 minutes. Serve with duck.

Hey road.not.taken, please do tell me where you get your dose of Lucky Charms from? I've been searching all over Singapore for it and I can't seem to find it. I absolutely love Lucky Charms!

a cool water sandwich and a Sunday-go-to-meeting bun

don't eat those cereals, dead food and the worst way to start your day, will send your kids into a short-lived sugar rush followed by a long moody sugar coma

save them for night snacks, if anything, and eat fruit instead

Any idea how much sugar fruits contain?

Medium size apple contains 19 g of sugars (~55% fructose).
http://www.nutritiondata.com/facts-C00001-01c20TB.html

One cup of Lucky Charms has only 14 g of sugars.
However, with ~80% sucrose the glycemic load is almost 5 times higher that of the apple.

yes and don't care, really-
all I know is since I stopped having bready-things and eating only fruit I feel great, and my digestive system is very healthy as a result

most of what I eat is 2/3rds watermelon with blueberrys and a little banana, sometimes mango


but on every-other weekends.....french toast, my way

yes, that honey bunches of oats is quite nice, but I'm not a big cereal fan most of the time either. Porridge is OK (the oaty kind), but I prefer a nice bowl of dahl for breakfast to any of those cereals out there (makes you feel fuller for longer too).
