: : : What is "a proper English Breakfast"?
: : ~~~~~~~
: : He may be quiet, but he's HUNGRY! Don't you worry about those proper English breakfasts, Jay...just come on down (farther) South, and let your Mohican Mama cook you some grits 'n' grease. Everybody knows THAT'S what breakfast is all about. Forget the Yengeese kippers and the North Carolina liver mush!! (shudder!) Think fresh grapefruit off the tree, eggs done just the way you like 'em, creamy grits, with or without cheese, hot biscuits with orange blossom honey...get the picture?
: : MMMM
: Hey Miss!
: Jay may well 'get the picture' but - *I* never got that breakfast once in all the time I visited with you!! And I never even SAW a grapefruit on a tree, never mind ATE one straight from the tree! *Hrrmmpphh!*
Well, honeybunch, no offense, BUT...us Southern gals always do our best cooking for the MENFOLK! Especially when said Manfolk is a sweet little blue-eyed cutie-pie, and we happen to have a DAUGHTER we'd like to see find just such a fella! (Oooooops...gave away the plan there, didn't I, QuietMan? Er...Jay? Hmmmmm...looks like he decided to run far, run FAST!)
And further, Miss Katie, I TOLD you the fall was the best time to come...that's when all the citrus gets ripe, and I'll have you know my wee little grapefruit tree has about 75 beautiful Ruby Red grapefruits on it as I type. My Valencia orange must have 100 oranges on it turning ripe, and my Satsuma is covered in too many to count!!
And not only THAT...but I seem to remember you telling me you didn't really DO breakfast. But if it's eggs, grits, and biscuits you want, then by golly, when you get here next year, you'll have PLATTERS full of 'em!! I'll be pushing eggs down yer throat like that scene in Cool Hand Luke!! You'll be getting grits through a funnel! Casting aspersions on my Southern Hospitality, be ye? *haruuuuuuumph, indeed!!!* Just you wait, Lass!!
