Porridge: Have you tried it?

I was getting sick of eating the british breakfast, so I tried the porridge. I like it a lot.

Not a fan of grits, cream of wheat or oatmeal. If any of those are considered porridge, then...no.
My mom eats oatmeal, with blueberries, almost every...single...day.

Don't you have different varieties, like we do? We have all sorts porridges, some of which I hate to guts, but... Yeah.

@Carla Yes..all sorts. For me, it's a texture thing.

Oh, that's the reason I was about to make a very sexist and uncensored joke... Oh.. Well... Yeah.

After what you did with it, I'd imagine, but not what I was on about... Well... Not completely.

Just oatmeal for me. Blueberries have a weird texture ( -_-)

I was told it's good for your cholesterol, so if it's true, it will be good for me.

I can get nauseus easily with certain types of food if I keep eating it, and luckily that hasn't happened with the oatmeal.

Porridge with fruit sauce on it is the best way to start the morning with.

Yes, it's one of my favorite foods.

Butter sounds interesting. Never tried that.
In Brazil we often use cinnamon as topping for porridges.

Yep, I like oatmeal. :) In Brazil we call it "mingau" (de aveia) - I don't know if this word is common in Portugal. There is also "mingau de maizena", which I also like.

I might be mistaken, but I've heard that a typical British breakfast includes things like bacon, eggs, sausage... so not very kind on the stomach, I imagine.

The taste seems a lot like "rice baby/kid food" here in Portugal. I remember eating it as a kid.

Yeah, it is. It's a bit heavy for me. I've been avoiding eating "enchidos". If I don't eat it very slowly, I don't feel good after.

"Nestum" - I've never seen it around here. Apparently Nestlé only sells it in Portugal, and not in Brazil. Discrimination!! :P (jk)

"Enchidos" - Over here, we call them "embutidos". :) Well, avoiding them is probably best for your health anyway. I personally try not to have too much of them.

Yes, also savoury dishes like yam porridge to go with veggie stew. Delish!
