@ Colette - doh!
yes it's lovely. don't put much on at all, you should hardly be able to taste it. it just gives a little exotic background hint.
does anyone else do that? i got it off my mum.
Yeah, not to mention poor old syrup sponges getting the axe.
raspberry royales are still going strong though
Re. the poached egg thing - most places seem to find it impossible to poach eggs properly any time of the day.
I was shocked to see how Pick More Daisies do it - the cling film method!
And McDs make all their margin on the drink anyway. They make very little money on each burger, a bit on the chips and loads on the drink. That's why they invented Extra Value Meals - to encourage drink sales.
It's basically the world's biggest coca-cola shop
I'm always to late for an Egg McMuffin. So much so that I've perfected my own version. Mmmm.

I heart Monmouth. I was in their Borough market branch today. They don't charge for fluffies (and I'm happy to report that my kids weren't screaming) and they had loads of lovely looking bread, butter and jam on the tables, which you helped yourself to, for £2.50 per person.
I think it's better than Flat White. The coffee's cheaper for one thing. It should never exceed £2.
