Hello, everybody in here. I just HAD to register, after reading this thread...I don't know whether to feel sick, or jealous, about all that lovely junk-food you are all starting your days with. Mountain Dew?! Gotta be some crabby people for the rest of the day, ya?

I normally just make myself a PB&J (chunky PB with guava jam, actually, on toasted white) for breakfast, but this morning a coworker gave me a baked char siu manapua from Royal Kitchen. Mmm!

Right now Spring Semester is over and the Summer session doesn't start until next week so at HCC the cafeteria is closed and the building where the bookstore is, is closed due to electrical work.

So that leaves just the vending machine, wanted to get a bottle of water, put in my $1.25 into it, press the button and it says "Sold out". There is a second button for water and I press that and it too says "Sold out".

So then I press the Mountain Dew button and a bottle comes out. I shouldn't be drinking it but what the heck.

Hi Helen...I guess I'm really out of the habit...no coke machines, here...but, wouldn't it be cheaper (and healthier) to just pop a bottle into your backpack, each morning? It hurts to think of what you could spend, in a year, on machines alone.

Sipping on a new bottle of Mountain Dew for this morning since the vending machine hasn't re-stocked yet.

There is a 3-7/8 ounce unopened bag of Doritos sitting on my desk, going to leave it as just in case thing if I can't get away to eat lunch outside the campus today.

I've forgotten about life. Except for going to the bakery, and picking up croissants, that just doesn't happen, over here.

Default Is it French, German or Freedom Toast?

Speaking of France, many people assume French Toast - A popular American breakfast dish made by pan frying sliced bread dipped in an egg mixture - was originally from there, but several arguments claim otherwise.

I heard about "Freedom Fries", but never "Freedom Toast".

I usually make it by mixing sugar, cinnamon and nutmeg in the eggs first, then dip and soak slices of Safeway's "French" bread. Fry it in butter and serve it with more butter, chopped Macadamia nuts, sliced banana and coconut syrup. Mo' buttah, mo' bettah!

Try French/freedom/whatever toast with a little rum, or cointreau, splashed into the egg, milk, sugar, cinnamon mix...Mmmm!

Or better yet, make pudding. Put bread, day-old bread, or even dry old bread (or even cornbread) into a greased baking dish. I stand the bread on edge, to really pack it in. Shake over sugar, or cinnamon sugar, toss in some raisins or chopped apples, or whatever...can even just dollop some jam on top. Top with butter flakes. Make up a mixture of two or three eggs for each cup of milk, mix it well, and pour it over the bread...keep adding more, till it's all soaked up. Leave it to sit in a cool place, for several hours, or overnight, than top it up with more egg and milk mix, chop up some more butter for the top, and sprinkle with cinnamon sugar. Bake at about 325-350f (150-180c) til it's puffy and golden...try shake it, if it wobbles too much, leave it in for a bit longer. Good hot, warm, or cold.

Instead of sugar, add cubed or sliced cheese and ham, then it's called a Strada. It might be good with Portuguese sausage, too, or char siu...hey, maybe even with fishcake and green onions.

Susie, I think I'll try that. Sounds "cest ci bon"! Perhaps drizzle more rum on AFTER it's cooked and let it absorb in for extra "kick".

Remember tha Bacardi cake? The one where you poked the hot cake, and poured a mixture of boiled sugar, rum, and butter over it? That mixture might be good on top, too. I used to make that cake with Amaretto, instead of rum, and make little almond-pate roses, to decorate it.

What was that sauce? Maybe one cup sugar, one half cup butter, boil, then add one quarter cup booze?

Yes, it surely does, I guess.

Don't have any. And I'm one of the lucky people who can actually walk from my home to work. What I meant was that those other people who have to fight traffic usually leave before sunrise and that it's too early for breakfast.

A pit pony is the ponies that were kept underground, right down in the mines, to pull the carts loaded with whatever the miners were digging up. The ponies lived their whole lives down there, and usually finished up blind. To be called a 'pit pony' means you go to work in the dark, before sunrise, and go home after dark, when the sun has already set....living always in the dark, just like those ponies.

Okay. Thanks for the explanation. We don't have a lot of mines or miners here.

Kind of like employees who are called 'mushrooms' because the bosses keep them in the dark and feed them lots of sh**... er, manure.
