A Hawksmoor breakfast & anti-fogmatics

Take a look at this mouth-watering breakfast of champions below; I’m not sure anything else needs to be said….

Although interestingly, the Urban Dictionary defines “breakfast of champions” as “a breakfast that your mum probably wouldn’t serve you”

A breakfast that your mom probably wouldn’t serve you. The average BoC (Breakfast of Champions) consists of things that do not require cooking and are consequently very popular with single men. Most BoCs are made up of any combination of the following:
Alcohol (often cheap beer) , tobacco (usually cigarettes)
pop tarts (not toasted), cereal-minus the milk (unless the milk is chunky)
caffine (usually coffee, Mt Dew or cola), aspirin

I disagree. My mum certainly would have done. And did. It certainly got me out of bed and outside on cold, dark farm winter mornings.

And Hawksmoor bookings can be made here; so, what are you waiting for?

And don’t forget their “doctor’s orders” items. Finest kind.

In 1821 a kindly doctor explained the importance of these popular early- morning drinks: ‘Gum-Ticklers warm the gums after sleeping – to be taken immediately on awakening, or at farthest, on getting out of bed’ while ‘Phlegm- Cutters remove hoarseness from the voice (to be taken between dressing and breakfast)’. He helpfully adds, ‘Should there be no fog, take as preventatives lest there should be fog in the course of the day’

There have been days when a Corpse Reviver No. 2 would have come in handy.
