    The George has just entered my top ten pubs at number three!

    Haven't been in there since the late 80s, I usually go to the Cod and Lobster when I go to Staithes but my allegiance has changed, their menu is first rate and their beer is perfection.

    Ha! I know what you're REALLY interested in!

    And what's with that last guy who isn't looking at his phone?

    My wife really likes a good breakfast so we have enjoyed eating at The Egg & I. Then they recently sold to First Watch. I had everything on their menu (First Watch) and since some of you may enjoy their wonderful breakfast meals, here's my rating: [I kept the scale down a bit to give me wiggle room for potential very high scores.]

    1. The Trad. Br.....7.8
    2. Tri-Fecta.....8.3
    3. Healthy Turkey....9.3 light, flavorful. Feta cheese gives it the right touch for a cheese lover like me.
    4. Avocado...8.5 very nice. Fresh. The lemon adds to it. [Giot scrambled in lieu of fried and they were nice.]
    5. AM Super Bowl... 8.0 Nice rich flavor yet not too heavy. A filling that lasts.
    6. Granola...7.8 Fruity but not too sweet. Nice balance in flavors. less granola than I expected.
    7. Steel cut oatmeal...8.3. Fruit and other adds make it flavorful. I added half & half from table bowl of coffee adds.
    8. True Athlete...8.3. Lots of flavor w mushrooms and side polo. Big fruit side.
    9. Power Wrap....7.7.
    10. Multigrain Pan...8.8. I had two: one blueberry, one cinnamon. The compote was nice, not too syrupy.
    11. Lemon ricotta... 8.7. Light touch of lemon fits well with these pans.
    12. Belgian Waffle...8.5. Nice. I added eggs & toast (Tri frecta)
    13. French toast...8.4. Moist center brioche.
    14. Florida FT....8.1
    15. Chickichanga....8.9 Nice flavoring. Adding the Kiwi inside works well.
    16. Benedict Classic...8.2. Especially nice if you're a ham lover (I'm marginal with ham) as it was tasty and abundant. The eggs were slightly overdone, which is unusual for them.
    17. Benedict Florentine...8.7
    18. Benny BLT... 7.8 due to eggs not over easy (again) any tomato was more white than red. [8.8 likely if done right.]
    19. Benny salmon... (not a salmon fan)
    20. Elevated Egg... 8.8. Nice, light sandwich.
    21. Tacos..... 9.5 The standards bar for San Antonio tacos is very high. The chicken and chorizo combo with some avocado makes this taco exceptional. I asked for salsa and they brought green salsa -- I forgot they dropped red salsa after the buy-out -- but it diminished the taste quality.
    22. Biscuits and Turkey Sausage Gravy...7.4 Cooked nicely but just not much to work with. Low calorie alternative for a dieting b & gravy lover, I suppose.
    23. Hash Farmhouse...8.2
    24. Hash Parma...9.3 Very flavorful and balanced for the sausage lover.
    25. Hash Market...8.6
    26. Omelette Bocado... 9.4 nice blend of bacon bits and avocado. Not too heavy, especially with fruit sub., though grapes were extra round yet only one almost got free.
    27. Ham & Gruyere...________
    28. Chile Chorizo... 9.1. Great flavor, not heavy.
    29. Morn. Market Veg... 7.5. I may be too old fashion for these.
    30. Inspired Italian...8.6. Loaded with tasty sausage and not spicy.
    31. The Works...9.0. nice, meaty flavor.
    32. Frittata Rustica...8.0. Nice. Nicer for Veggie lovers, no doubt.
    33. Smoked Salmon..skip
    34. P.B. Quinoa...7.0/8+. At least 8 for any mushroom lover; I’m not. Strong flavors. I recommend adding toast and jam for balance.
    35. P. B. Pesto Chicken Quinoa...9.0. Very nice balance with strong tomato flavor balanced nicely with chicken and the other ingredients. What a contrast with the above, and I end on this high note, too.

    Each of those would get a 0 from me. Avocados just taste .... green.

    You and The Backroad Astronomer should never come to Australia for breakfast then. Avocado is practically compulsory at "brunch places". It is so common that it became part of a national debate about home ownership. https://www.smh.com.au/opinion/why-t...18-gw7m6i.html

    Apparently the consumption of avocado here has increased by about 400% in the last 20 or so years.

    It was more the texture I wasn't expecting. It is something if you grow up eating it probably wouldn't be such an issue.

    Just don't confuse your avocados with abogados. The latter is a lawyer.

    My father-n-law from Ohio had a different analogy for guacamole that had something to do with a diaper, unfortunately. Well, they did have 9 kids.

    My wife usually has two or three changes on every meal. We are starting to track the percentage of times they get the order correct. I'm sure they can hold the avocado slices, and it may be a common aberration from the best possible meal.

    I finally was told that they are good for you and, since I like them, I'm not going to Google this down and risk an alternative viewpoint.

    The best way to get acclimate might be to make sure they are ripe, then add both lemon juice and a little salt. Putting some on a Tostito's chip and add you favorite salsa might even make it easier.

    Hold the bread and that's perfect to go with avocados!

    Tuna lettuce wraps, we have a surplus of lettuce at the moment because it is really growing well in a container and someone bought some last week.

    As a follow-on from previous discussions about avocados, these giant ones are just making an appearance here. http://www.abc.net.au/news/rural/201...arkets/9971220 Certainly plenty of fun for avocado addicts.

    Salt fish hash and salad. Last night we had a salt fish dinner of potato, plain macaroni and cooked salt fish with pickled beets and the pickling liquid poured on top. Tonight it all goes into a frying pan together.

    I made five quarts of giardiniera and 4 quarts of pickles. I am anticipating a very good steak sandwich in a few days.

    Whatcha Eatin?

    Sausage and lentil soup with a salad. Soon to enjoy some banana-pineapple cake.

    For those familiar with the Carrabba’s restaurant chain the soup is a copycat recipe.
