It's quite confusing at times. Someone shouts up to you ''have you had any tea?'', and you don't know if they mean drink-tea or eat-tea.

I'm eating homemade muesli with loads of fruit, seeds, nuts and honey and cinnamon soya milk. I went to a health market at the weekend and stocked up on loads of lovely food, so I'm enjoying this a lot.

Moving along in our God given ways, safety is sat by the fire/Sanctuary from these feverish smiles, left with a mark on the door.

I'm certain that the pool of sickness was more pleasant to the eye than the pre-eaten Raviloli. I've also never been able to keep a tin of canned soup down.

Can tea be eaten? 

Yip. Your tea can refer to your dinner or evening meal so you eat your tea. No idea why its called your tea, probably because you have a cup of tea with it - like a fish tea (fish, chips, peas (better mushy), a slice of bread and butter, and a cup of tea).

To be fair i think ive only ever had soup out of a can something like 4 times but it's never been a successful meal.

You learn something new every day. I'm such an uncivilized American.

I just learned this term the other day at a Halloween party. I learned how to make English tea a few weeks ago and my husband was telling someone about this at the party. "Do you eat your tea?", the guy asked me. I had never heard of this term, so I gave a bewildered look and slowly nodded.  Now it all makes sense thanks to MMM. *ack* I failed on my British terminology. "Bad Dobby, bad Dobby" *starts hitting self with lamp*

This site gives a reason why people call their evening meal their tea as well as what you call your evening meal is down to what class system you fall/fell into.

"Hunky Dorys" -- what a name for a brand of crisps!

They should come out with a pretzel called "Helter Skelters"...blue-meanie

Brilliant. apple01 Do you envision them being hard, crunchy ones or the big soft kind you get at the mall? Will they come in different flavors?

Thanks. I guess the Helter Skelter pretzels would be huge and gnarly, with gobs of marshmallow and maple syrup inside.

 

Pretzels are not big in Ireland, pretty hard to find- I always get them when I'm in Germany though

You can find Pretzels in supermarkets in Scotland but they are generally not very nice (they come in bags like crisps do). Would love to try one freshly baked one tho as im sure they are much better.

 

Made some oatmeal and fruit cookies tonight, have the pleasure of trying them for my supper with a cup of tea (must be Tetley). If anyone can suggest things to bake which are with normal simple everyday ingredients (i have no idea what bicarbonate of soda is or where to get it, sounds like what you'd do your laundry with) i'll see about attempting them.  Thanks.

Speaking of unspeakably pigging out, the one item I have done this with the most is chocolate-covered roasted coffee beans.  I ate a whole bag once, and for the rest of the day felt like I had been pleasantly run over by a car.blue-meanie

Beer and pretzels. Could catch on pretty fast. Like those little bottle-shaped chocolates with liquor in them.

That's a very funny line. Those choco covered coffee beans are way too good - very addicting.

Right now, just snacking lightly on some fresh grapes...saving my appetite for dinner out tonight.

Just had lasagna for dinner, and later on will dive into Front Porch County Fair Fried Apple Pie ice cream. Yum. brian-epstein

It is the southern United States. If they can find a way to fry a food they will. McDonalds used to sell fried pies. Now they bake them. We have an Oklahoma fried pie company. Good stuff.

Sorry Ahhh, but no. Ice cream don't last long with me. brian-epstein Had I known, I'd have shared. 

Front Porch has some other excellent flavors, but they also have sweet tea flavored ice cream, which I do NOT intend on trying. Sweet tea is one Southern delicacy that I can not get into.
