I do.
Fettucini Alfredo, bacon sandwiches, burgers, peanut butter sarnies and others.


Currently cheese and tomato sandwiches and cheese and tomato salads.


Happily tomatoes are at the peak of harvest season. Such a nice fruit/veggie always tasty and cool on a hot day.

I do, all the time. My wife cooked me a lovely brunch today; egg, bacon, mushrooms, tomatoes on fried bread...yummy.
Then I came back from the finest Cornish cider in my local and had.. a very large bacon sarnie :o(
Does that make me bad?

I thought not but now a days if I don't get my bacon, egg and home fries breakfast at weekends I get withdrawal symptoms. (Shaking limbs, drooling, hunger pains etc!)

Food ruts? Or specific, single-dish, food urges? A rut insinuates boredom and something that one can't get out of.

I think I went through food urges when I was younger - but with age, food boredom sets in, and it's a struggle to think up something completely different to eat each mealtime, that's not been already eaten in recent days.

That's when senility comes in handy.

Off for a full English in Croydon in a few minutes. Mmmmm. Do eat some dishes regularly, other nights it's whatever grabs my fancy, or something that was spectacularly cheap in local Tesco. Got a thing about steak at the mo.

Is that bacon I can smell...?

Many folk have the same breakfast menu every day for years on end and nobody thinks it in any way odd.
What's wrong with the idea of having the same basic lunch or dinner every day (with seasonal variations one hopes!) once you've found something you like?

My wife is a Nurse, she is wonderful in all departments.;). except in the food department, for everything I like is Bad for me,, Bacon Steak, Eggs , Chips,/potatoes in general, White bread with butter to soak up juices from previous named foods, Rice pudd is my favourite sweet even that is rationed, All beers/Ciders, Gin/Scotch and wine are equally bad for me so hence my three visits a week to the Rugby Club plus my palls Transport Cafe and the local Guinness and Steak Lunch at the "Lord Nelson" or the "Dog and Gun"

Other than that I try to eat correctly..:=

Sure, pint of tea with breakfast every day, curiously coffee at elevenses, then lunch, afternoon tea, dinner and an evening snack. I really must get out of this RUT.

Mind you, a cruise approaches so that will change my routine:

Early breakfast, late breakfast, lunch, afternoon tea, dinner, late supper.

Only one egg? No fried bread? No black pudding?

Looks dangerously healthy to me :=
