Stories and Dialogues
They say, breakfast should be substantial, but I don’t
like to have breakfast. I prefer a cup of tea or cocoa with a couple of sandwiches. Sometimes I have coffee in the morning, but not very often. I have it white. My mother likes eggs for breakfast, but not me. I like neither boiled nor fried eggs. On Sunday when I take it easy, I like a toast with butter and honey. But my favourite Sunday breakfast is cold meat with mustard, or ham with brown bread.
Dinner is my most substantial meal. Usually I have a four-course dinner. I like to have vegetable salad for an appetizer or herring with oil and onions. Cabbage soup is my favourite first course. I have it with sour-cream and brown bread. But sometimes I have chicken soup
or broth with rice. I prefer meat to fish for the second. I like fried or stewed meat with gravy and mashed potatoes or boiled vegetables. If I have fish for dinner I have it fried with chips and green peas. I'm very particular about my dessert. In summer I have stewed fruit or fruit juice. In winter I prefer to have hot strong and sweet tea with lemon if there's some.
Englishmen like to have tea at five o'clock. So do I. I
think it does you good as you can have a very light supper after five-o'clock tea. I usually make my tea myself and like to lay the table for it. I like to have tea with lemon and sugar. My mother prefers hers with
jam or marmalade.. Very often we have tea with honey and buttered toasts. On Sunday my mother or we bake something to a chat a cake or a pie. We like to have a chat over a cup of strong nice tea.

NOTE: Although the correct name for the midday meal is ''lunch'', many English families call it ''dinner''.
To complicate matters further, the mid-morning break of coffee and biscuits is also called ''lunch''. English people do not wish each other ''Good appetite''.
