: : : : : Another question from the Brit-coms on PBS: what do you get when someone serves a "full English breakfast"?
: : : : The full heart attack on a plate - bacon, sausages, fried eggs, fried bread, tomatoes, mushrooms and anything else there's room for. I go for the vegi-sausage version myself so I'm not an authority, but I get the impression that the full English is easier to find in Ireland these days.
: : : You forgot the black and white pudding, and the tinned beans!
: : What's black and white pudding? Beans for breakfast?
: Don't believe them when they tell you it's fish and chips. It's hinez baked beans on toast.
I'm beginning to understand why I never see a British restaurant in the U.S.
