Okay...here's the deal.

I will send you some Honey Nut Cheerios.

You send me some of ...that stuff.

(I swear I will withhold judgement until I actually taste it--hey, I eat crawfish, don't I? yes I do.)

grinning...e me, for details.

Sorry Kamla, but Vegemite is nasty, at least to American sensibilites.  Too freakin salty ... mush is supposed to be sweet.  

Anyway, as to the topic, pizza for breakfast here -- thin crust, ham and pineapple.  And lemonade.

actually salty mush is better to me, because it gives you a good excuse to wash it down with large quantities of beer.

Karen you SO have a deal.

Hmmm...if I send you vegemite Jamie will definitely want the postcard that I was meant to send him a month ago and is actually sitting...hmm...I've lost it...

I can't guarantee you will actually receive it in the near future - but I'll let it sit in my draw and ferment (er.....) for awhile..

Okay I had company from Australia last year and Andy gave me his shopping list before he came and it was porridge, and Vegemite too.  He brought that vegemite with him, and I found out porridge was just oatmeal when he got here (that I could do).  Well, I took one wiff of his Vegemite and insisted it be kept in the other fridge as I could smell something like a gross malt smell which made me sick.  He ate it on toast every morning and I had to go outside while this ritual took place as the smell is something one either gets used to or must have a small empty bucket near by, (I was of the latter).  That stuff stinks!  But I like the song about it though Kamla

We should spend less time worrying about when our life is going to end and more on when it's going to start!

An Ode to Marmite
              The Joy of Marmite

I spread my Marmite sparingly, upon my buttered toast
Of all the things to put on bread, it's what I like the most.

Its flavour always feels warm, although it isn't hot
--Caustic like a chili sauce, it certainly is not

Approved by vegetarians, and good for your nutrition
Of what my Mum called savoury, the very definition.

Though made from lowly byproducts--leftover brewing ooze
It is so reminiscent of the finest of French stews

Such grand associations were surely what was meant
When so named by clever brewers from Burton on the Trent

Precisely what exquisite yeast do Marmite makers use
To lend such gourmet qualities to brewing residues?

hmmm Seldom am I asleep before 4 a.m. and I usually sleep till around noon - working nights has a way of messing with your schedule - so I don't know what meal, if any of mine, would even qualify for breakfast.

That being said, my first meal today was pizza.  Does that count?

it's not that I've got anything against Vegemite K, it's just that I see we're going through the whole thing again where people just don't really understand what Vegemite is, and why it's so loved by you. . .

you'll never get them to understand. . . they're just not as special as you are. . .

I absolutely LOVE breakfast type foods, but I don't do mornings anymore...so sometimes I have breakfast for dinner....

Wonderful eggbeaters with turkey bacon...high in protein, low in fat
delicious too!
Oh...and the best part is that my husband cooks it AND cleans it all up........Now...are ya all jealous?

more intriguing results from my never ending research into the various 'mites'

There are 3 types of yeast extract in NZ/Australia - vegemite, marmite and promite

They're basically all the same, BUT.

Marmite is sweeter than vegemite
Promite is sweeter then marmite
They're all extremely salty tasting.

Vegemite eaters will eat marmite at a pinch, but marmite eaters tend not to be able to stomach vegemite

Ingredients:
Vegemite: (Kraft General Foods NZ Ltd)
Yeast extract, salt, malt extract, colour(caramel), vegetable flavours, vitamins (niacin, thiamine, riboflavin)

Marmite: (Sanatarium Health Food Company, NZ)
Yeast, sugar, salt, wheatgerm extract, mineral salt (508) colour(caramel), herbs, spices, vitamins (niacin, thiamin, riboflavin)
It's also got a small note under the ingredients: "100% vegetarian" (but then, what do you expect from a company owned by the 7th Day Adventist church?)

Promite: (Masterfoods of Australia)
Vegetable protein extract, sugar, yeast, natural colour(caramel) salt, thickener (Wheat starch), emulsifier (Glycerol monostearate) spices, added vitamins, water
Other countries' versions may vary....
