My virtual scrolling doesn't like me any more but it says there's nothing wrong. I'm confused and I don't think I could go back to pulling around the scroll bar.

Somehow CJ managed to turn the 'guess' thread into a black hole - made of purest Marmite
Mayhap ideally crystalline or super-fluid?? Does anyone know the exact physical qualities of that stuff?
Tried to save Perla's toast by a quote, but then my toast vanished too... *shruggin*

^nope, lots of posts are going AWOL, but they seem to be turning up eventually....

This is what I guessed in response to Craig's obviously marmite-related description in the guess thread:

^ah, then it's good

& @ pic

(But Marmite ain't that bad now, tried it last year when I been in North Wales - in combi with the rest of culinary specialties them Brits have, particularly in the mornings, where 'continental me' usually only has a coffee+ciggie thing going on )

^I know of a cafe where one can order a coffee + ciggie off the menu -- they call it the "Bohemian Breakfast."

And I'm sorry, but I beg to differ on the Marmite issue. I'm sure CJ is healthy and everything, but ick. Salsa is where it's at.

^That's lovely!

(We call c+c 'French breakfast' here out of some reason...French=Bohemians?... but shouldn't there be croissants in it either?? c+c+c then)

OK, let us differ on the Marmite issue! Salsa (sauce as well as dance) is great too - but for breakfast? Oh, well why not, Chinese eat rice or/and hot soup in the mornings, so...

^OMG HAVE YOU NEVER HAD A BREAKFAST TACO?!!?

Is there no end to the suffering of this world?



Behold, the glory of the breakfast taco. I strongly believe it should be named the national bird. This one is in its pristine state and has not yet been christened with the everlasting love of the jalapeno salsa. To be clear, the "breakfast tacos" served at chains like Sonic and sometimes McD's and such bear NO RESEMBLANCE to the real thing. A proper breakfast taco consists of a freshly made, lightasafeather flour tortilla (or corn, sometimes, but not a corn tortilla out of a package!!! Those are made out of reconstituted cereal box cardboard.), and some combination of potatoes, scrambled egg, beans, bacon/chorizo, cheese, and the like. I feel the potato and egg taco is superior to all others. Regardless of the filling, it must be handed to you all wrapped up in foil like that. A plate is an insult to a self-respecting breakfast taco. When you get your tacos (because one is never enough), you go to the salsa bar and pick something out. I recommend a combination of the green chili-tomatillo and fresh red. The breakfast taco is nearly wholly responsible for my continuing to live in TX despite the 70% Republican majority.

*sigh*

I'm gonna have to make an extra stop this morning.

^OK, you have more or less persuaded me here

Now, I just have to talk a word with the fastfood dealer of my confidence - by now more specialised on döner & felafel, his pizzas are... well, OK... (the Mexican restaurent two blocks away put tacos on plates, ts ts, ts) to a) include tacos on his menu and b) open a bit earlier for me

"delicious" is woefully inadequate to describe the transcendent awesomeitude of the breakfast taco.

I weep with anticipation of my taco stand pilgrimmage.

Oh, wait...that's drool.

Did Autumn make you a breakfast taco? How sweet of her!

Why do you Texans call them tacos? That's known as a breakfast burrito around these parts, and I've never seen one made from a corn tortilla.

Seconded. Tacos aren't made with tortillas, they're made with taco shells - brittle ones. Tortillas make burritos.
The glorious TortillaHat.
