Castle: Finn

When you stand up to leave the kitchen, you are hit with the aroma of griddle cakes.

A servant has just place a stack on the serving cart ready to be wheeled into the dining room.

The servant looks at you with a twinkle in her eye.

mmm, smell's good, don't it. A stack o'these always reminds me of the tale of Finn Mccoul.

fyi: A typical Belgian breakfast is like that of its northern neighbor, the Netherlands. Belgians do not eat their most famous food, Belgian waffles, which are traditionally sold in tourist areas of large cities, and are eaten as a snack. The breakfast in Belgium consists of breads, toasted or untoasted, with several marmalades, jams, and nut spreads, such as Nutella or just with a bar of chocolate. Other common toppings include sliced meats and cheeses. Pastries and croissants may be served on Sundays, but are mostly not eaten on weekdays. Belgians often enjoy coffee, tea, hot chocolate, water, or fresh juice with breakfast. -wikipedia

  1. The absolute favourite of all Siofra is an oaten porridge with freshly clotted cream and a sprinkling of brown sugar. All Others have a taste for berries too and will find them in the deepest hedgerows to scatter over the porridge.

  2. Finn McCool is a giant of a man and fits me in the palm of his hand. I would love to hear how his story is told.

  3. Breakfast is my favorite meal, so it's all good. You can't do better than waffles, pancakes, french toast...

  4. My favorite breakfast is french toast with powered sugar sprinkled on top with butter and syrup. Not for the dieters or faint of heart is this one. lol
