Bold of you to assume I let my cereal sit long enough to get soggy before stuffing it in my face.

Was the hot milk because of the tea? I don't know how much milk you think I put in there, but it's really very little

On that point I will agree with you - hot milk is nasty!

Hot milk on cornflakes. A great winter warmer.

Are you mad? .... Given the history of John Harvey Kellogg and the reason he invented cornflakes, if you were it would be particularly ironic.

Can one of the mods move all these off-topic milk posts onto their own thread?

I'm sorry, but having a whole thread just on milk would be absurd.

We at least need morning buns to go with that. Well we had buns anyway.

According to my mother, I've never had breast milk. I'll take her word for that, buggered if I can remember. Love me some full fat cow milk. Can't do semi, 2%, skimmed muck, may as well have water.

Porraige with butter is my favorite.

Not a fan of cold cereal.

Once I was in Appleby up n N England and they made us oat porrige with full cream!
It was amazing, never tried it at home though.

Corn flakes, not on!

We used to have Cream of Wheat, now that was good. With butter and sugar.

Melted and mixed in or somehow spread over?

You may as well throw your toast and tea in there as well, save washing up

Buns? You had buns?! All we got was little bottles of milk that had been sitting in the blazing sun for hours

That was probably the character-building Australian method, developed to prepare you for a life with so much fauna that tries to kill you.

We got currant buns, with shiny tops. Early milk was in bottles, and then it changed to a three pointed tetrapack that you had to push a straw into.
