    Default Irish Breakfast Lite

    Maybe Tuesday I'll go out to the local and fight my way through a real one.
    Today I wasn't up to the whole shebang, so we settled for just-baked soda
    bread with Irish flour, smoked salmon, and Kerrygold butter. I baked the
    bread in a loaf pan this time, instead of the usual round, and it was a
    whole lot easier to cut into portions.

    I'm in training for May, when I'll be over there eating the Real Stuff.

    Felice. Can you explain to me with poor words what are you doing?
    I didn't understand a word of what you have said.
    I have only understood that you will go out to the *local*, But what local?
    Then I have understood that you have eaten smoked salmon on an irish bread
    I think you hide something... ))))))))))
    Ps. I like bruschetta with smoked salmon over, parsley and fontina
    cheese!!!

    Pandora, when I re-read my post, I see that it's full of <espressiones
    colloquiale>!

    "Shebang" is a slang term for "almost everything" or <quasi tutto>

    A "local" is usually a neighborhood bar. In this case, it is a restaurant
    that serves an Irish breakfast. The whole "shebang" consists of bacon,
    sausages, black and white sausage-like "puddings", eggs, tomatoes and
    mushrooms -- all fried in fat -- and sometimes fried bread. It's a heart
    attack on a plate! My "mini" version involved wholemeal bread made with
    baking soda instead of yeast, a butter from Ireland, and smoked salmon.

    The Real Stuff refers to the breakfasts I will have in May on my next trip
    to Ireland, and that I am training myself to get ready for them!

    Pandora, you do very well in understanding our sometimes very casual
    language, and I admire your interest in learning more about it.

    I'd heard about the pork scare in December, which I believe is over, but I
    hadn't heard anything about dairy recalls. I'll have to look into it!
    Thanks for the advisory, Mark.

    Not compared to the Real Stuff -- bacon, sausage, black and white "puddings"
    (don't ask!), eggs, tomatoes, mushrooms and sometimes bread -- all fried!.
    Now doesn't that make my wholemeal bread, salmon and butter sound "lite"?

    I'd avoid Irish dairy products for now.

    Thank you very much! I love to learn more of your language and also slang.

    I'd imagine any recall is probably over, but I'd be
    concerned about residues in the supply chain.
    It's not like they're going to scoop up every particle
    of spilled animal feed. I'd steer clear of affected
    Irish products for a few years to make sure it's all gone.

    YVW The plate shown for the Ulster Fry is a little lean. The ones we
    ate there had more food on them
