When all is said and done it becomes quite obvious that a Croquet Madame is just a gussied up ham and cheese sarmie … with egg on its face.

But I am hungry now and want to eat my breakfast.

My friends are far more eloquent than me; go see their views on the subject:

    What I want to know is how you stay so thin when you have all these recipes and seem to spend so much time cooking. No fair.

    1. theonlycin says:

      A lot of people ask me that, dc; I guess the answer lies in frequent meals and small portions. I never let myself get hungy πŸ™‚

  2. Tandy says:

    what am I missing or not getting? Why can’t people be true to who they are?

    1. theonlycin says:

      No idea, small and miserable lives I guess.

  6. I’m with Deepercolours here. I read once you never eat except when you’re sitting down to a meal.
    But how?
    And I love Fakery. What an amazing word.

    1. theonlycin says:

      I sit down and savour my food, never cook without passion and always say grace πŸ˜€
      No fakery πŸ˜‰

  7. Lyndatjie says:

    Its hard to spot those that operate their fakery from a moral point of view. Scary!

    1. theonlycin says:

    1. theonlycin says:

      I’m fine, thank you Sunshine, but some of my friends have come under attack from a troll and it makes me cross.

  11. Pseu says:

    Trolls feed on others crossness, Cindy, sadly.

    1. theonlycin says:

      Yes, best not to feed them in return, they eventually go away.

  12. There’s no reason why I can’t have a taste explosion breakfast like that for lunch, right?

    1. theonlycin says:

      Absolutely right πŸ˜€

  13. i think maybe it’s just a leetle bit of pretension on the part of the sarmie.

    as for the people, well…………………

    1. theonlycin says:

      You can forgive the sandwich πŸ˜‰

    Ha, hunger makes us settle!

  15. nrhatch says:

    Thanks for the link . . .

    And for spotlighting dishonest, fake, and phony trolls wandering about with “egg on their face.” πŸ˜‰

  16. MissChris says:

    I am really naive and gullable – I do not know why people have to be vicious……………….. xxx – I want to come for breakfast like that! yum!

    1. theonlycin says:

      Anytime Chris πŸ™‚

  17. halfp1nt says:

    Great looking ‘sarmie’ πŸ™‚
    What is the best way to deal with trolls? I saw some of it on the other blogs, and I believe that DV and MM were being targeted but I miss out on a lot with not having access during the day.

    1. theonlycin says:

      A straightforward old troll is easy to ignore, but when it’s someone who pretends to be nice behind another face it becomes more difficult. Glad I am no longer there.

    I gain weight just looking at these….they all look so wonderful.
