Post Felices Fiestas - Seasons Greetings !!!!!

Folks... just a short note to say Felicidades to all the regulars here on these Argentina boards.

When I began a crusade to have FT accept Argentina as a stand alone forum, I received the kind support of many.... that was an important step and I happy that worked out.

However, what is more important is that today, quite a while since this forum was created, it is a vibrant, useful for the FT Community, and fun place on FT (I think)... and it would not be possible without the support, dedication and hard work than many of you offer here.

I perhaps risk leaving out a couple of people, but I nevertheless want to mention the following FTers that make a real difference around here - without you guys this Forum would have been killed ages ago.... so Kudos and Muchas Gracias to this very special trio of Adopted Argentos....

Felices Fiestas para todos !!!!!

Un abrazo,
Alex / Gaucho100K

(Ok, ok, I'll actually be in La Argentina longer than Chile on the trip.)

Torrontes slushies? (Naw, I shouldn't even suggest it because then I'd end up being the mule for the slushie-maker.)

You're mad....I cannot get my head round this fascination of having lunch after a big meal the evening before. I want breakfast at that time not a lunch.
I BBQ pork ribs and lomo last night which we started around 10pm. The meal continued after midnight and we got to bed around 2pm after getting rid of the mother in law. She wanted to come over today at midday for a cooked lunch fortunately the wife managed to put her off till this evening.

Probably a nice light 2500 calorie wake-up, such as this?

A full Scottish breakfast might include: toast, beans, fried haggis, potato hash, eggs, back bacon, potato scones, fried mushrooms, grilled tomatoes, Lorne sausage, black pudding, oatcakes, kippers, and porridge, although a breakfast with all of these ingredients might be a bit excessive. The breakfast is also typically paired with Scottish dairy products including milk and cream, along with Scottish jams and preserves. It may be served with black tea and orange juice as well.
